“So, like the humble lady with the issue of blood, be encouraged to have simple faith in the omniscient Spirit of God to heal, provide and guide.”
2 Corinthians 13:14
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Now I know the Holy Spirit had not yet been universally poured out when the woman with the issue of blood touched the edge of Jesus’ tunic but I like to think she knew the healing power Jesus commanded came from the Almighty. Jesus had a reputation as a healer and preached the kingdom of God. The Holy Spirit, who is God, had come upon him at his baptism. This woman knew that Jesus contained the power of God to heal her. According to Jewish custom, because of her bleeding, she was unclean and anyone who touched her would be unclean until evening. So, without fuss and in faith, she privately called on the Lord in her heart and touched her rabbi. By his omniscient Spirit, God heard her cry and healed her body.
Since the day of Pentecost, the Holy Spirit of God has been universally given to all believers. If you know Jesus as Lord and Saviour as a born-again believer then you have fellowship with the Spirit of Almighty God, 24/7. In fact, the Holy Spirit of God takes up residence in your mortal body; your body becomes his temple. In his salutation to the Corinthians, Paul reinforces the Trinity and encourages the Corinthian’s fellowship – communion, companionship, intimacy – with the Holy Spirit.
So, like the humble lady with the issue of blood, be encouraged to have simple faith in the omniscient Spirit of God to heal, provide and guide. He is closer to you than your very breath. He hears the thoughts of your heart. Fellowship with him who is your counsellor, comforter, teacher and helper. He will never, never leave you or forsake you.
God-tracking is walking in intimate fellowship with God.
