Refuse To Be A Victim: Woman with Issue of Blood

Refuse to be a victim: Woman with Issue of Blood

Refuse to be a Victim: Woman with Issues is part of our Refuse to be a Victim Series

The woman with the issue of blood Suffered many things (Mark 5:26) in her life but she refused to accept a victim mentality. 

For starters she had a bleeding problem for 12 years. 

This disease made her Suffer many things from many doctors (Mark 5:26) presumably as they tried to treat her.

Then this disease made her broke as she spent all she had and yet it continued to worsen instead of getting better

The financial situation could by itself have depressed her and made her accept a victim mentality since it potentially meant she could not consult any more doctors for her worsening condition but she did not let it bring her down. 

In addition to the financial issues arising from her bleeding issue, this woman also had social issues arising from the same bleeding issue. Once, again she did not let them make her accept a sick role or victim mentality. 

We know this because in spite of all her issues, when she heard about Jesus, she decided to come to Him and she was able to change herself from a victim of her circumstances (broke woman with an incurable disease) to a victor over her circumstances (woman miraculously healed by Jesus). 
Above all, take the shield of faith with which you will be able to put out all the fiery darts of the wicked one Ephesians 6:16

This woman can therefore teach us how to move from being victims of our circumstances to victors regardless of whether our issues are physical, mental, spiritual, social or financial by doing the following:
1. Have Faith in Jesus
We know that this woman had faith in Jesus because He told her Your faith has made you well(Mark 5:34) 

Therefore have faith ins Jesus especially if you are dealing with issues that do not have an earthly solution because it will give you hope that your issues can be solved.

To have faith in Jesus simply believe that With God all things are possible. (Matthew 19:26)
Faith without works is dead James 2:26

2. Take Action
This woman with issues took action by going to Jesus and and touching the hem of His garment. 

Therefore since Faith without works is dead (James 2:26) do something to show that you have believe your issues can be solved even if they have persisted for decades. 
The tongue has the power of life and death Proverbs 18:21

3. Speak Life
This woman spoke positively over her situation for said to herself, "If only I touch His garments, I shall be made well." (Mark 5:28) 

Therefore speak positively over your issues even if specialists speak negatively over them since The tongue has the power of death and life (Proverbs 18:21).
