The power of creation and the power of healing are One


A large crowd followed and pressed around him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. [In her desperation] she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, ‘If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.’ Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” [the disciples said “everyone is touching you”, but Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then fearfully the woman came forward to say it was her.] He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

Gospel of Mark 5:25-34

When the woman touches Jesus’ prayer shawl, the fringe of his garment, power that heals and restores health is felt by the receiver and known to the Giver. This power produces tangible effects.

The power of creation and the power of healing are One. Each specific act of creation came through the same power as each specific act of restoring health. The power of God can reconfigure matter to set it up or to set it right.
