Many of Jesus’ miracles involved him placing his hands on people and healing them. In this scenario, however, Jesus did not place his hands on the woman; rather, the woman laid her hands on Jesus, and she received her healing?
Yes, as a Christian, it is best to wait on God’s timing, but sometimes, instead of just staying at one place with your problems, thinking when it’s time God will do it, you should be like the bleeding woman, go to God. The woman didn’t wait for Jesus to place his hands on her, she touched Jesus and she received her miracle.
There are so many instances in the bible that encourages us to go to God with our problems. It encourages us to ask and we shall receive. You can’t really say God isn’t doing anything in your life if you never ask.
So what are you waiting on God for? Have you tried asking? Not just asking but asking in faith. When the woman touched Jesus, she had faith that just a touch of his garment can heal her and it did. Her faith healed her.
Faith is a very powerful tool for a Christian, so when you ask, ask in faith and you shall receive what you asked for. Below are some bible verses that encourage you to ask and you shall receive.
May the Lord hear you and grant you all your heart desires.

And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’For some time he refused. But finally, he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.
