Not going unseen

by Jean-Louis Coraboeuf

"Seeing that she had been unable to go unnoticed, the woman, came, trembling, to throw herself at his feet; she declared in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched him, and how she had been cured at that very moment" (Luke 8:47 Interlinear).

Often we want to cure secretly, away from all eyes. But God sometimes places us in extreme circumstances so that we can declare our healing, whether of the soul or body.

Even if we tremble with fear, it is important to confess aloud that which glorifies God. It is then that the Father will say to us, "My son or my daughter, your faith has saved you, go in peace!" (Luke 8:48).
