Getting Into the Press
November 29, 2021
When I woke up yesterday morning, I felt so close to You, Lord Jesus, and then I heard these words softly spoken to me, “Get into the press.” The things that have crept in and cause pain for me disappear when I am close to you.
Mark 5:24-34 (KJV)
25 "And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
26 "And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
27 "When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment.
28 "For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole.
29 "And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
30 "And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, 'Who touched my clothes?'
31 "And his disciples said unto him, 'Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?'
32 "And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
33 "But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.
34 "And he said unto her, 'Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.'"
Father, I’m getting into the press so I can get close enough to You that I can feel Your breath on my face. I have a desire to feel Your compassion flowing through me and reach for one more soul to bring into the kingdom of Your dear Son, Jesus. I pray for that one that is desperately needing just one touch that will deliver them from the darkest of places into that place filled with light and happiness. In Jesus's name I pray, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
