Until You Make A Move....

Goethe says that “until one is committed there is hesitancy, a chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless dreams and splendid plans, that the moment one definitely commits oneself providence moves too.” 
This is so true of the woman with the issue blood's life. She was fed up with her current situation and decided to confront the incarnate God once and for all. The moment one commits to an endeavour, heaven moves to aid them.
She was frail, smelly and sickly yet was determined to find the medicine to the disease that had plagued her for twelve years.  In her spirit was the revelation but in the outward was her struggle. Truly, her situation epitomized a tale of two cities. A brief account of her situation is given in the bible where we are told she had a continuous flow. It relates her struggle to overcome the continuous flow of blood which had become a canker. She had spent all her money on physicians but nothing changed.  Unfortunately, years passed and her condition worsened. Society had gagged her with laws but God was waiting for her to make the move in other to receive her break.Blood is life and as long as she kept on bleeding, she was dying slowly. She could have relented but something kept urging her on. This "something" that kept urging her on is within every creation of God. The desire to see ourlives become better is God-given. God never created man to be in dire and so when ever we are caught in such situation, the nature that hates being stifled is aroused.
One day she had the divine information that Jesus was in town. He came to heal, to show the path onto eternal life. Levitical laws or convention could not stop her, neither could the crowd around Jesus stop her.Remember he who has the gold, makes the rules. She had the current information to her healing and nothing was going to stop her. She knew two things will happen- either she receives her healing or remain the same and perhaps die without redemption. This resolve pushed her to demand her healing by any means necessary. Her boldness in the end paid off. She touched Jesus' hem and the blood flow ceased. For the first time in Jesus' live He is heard saying "virtue is gone out of me". She was healed of that which had deprived her of being a full human being.
May be if minor adjustmentS to your character, attitude, perception, prayer life and beliefs were made, you will make the move that will change your life. Too many of us are waiting on providence when their situations demand an urgent approach.
The moment you make up your mind to move towards the desire yo have, heaven will definitely provide you with the tools. When a person is able to identify their purpose in the now, you are given the dynamus to do more than you thought you couldn't.
