Spiritual intuition and healing

The Bible's extraordinary story about a woman who had been hemorrhaging for 12 years provides two examples of intuition at work. The woman's intuition that she could be healed, simply by slipping through the crowd surrounding Jesus and touching the edge of his robe, brought the result she had hoped for. And Jesus' intuition that someone had touched him gave him the opportunity to show that, like everyone else in the crowd, the woman deserved attention and respect. It appears he wanted it to be known that his robe didn't contain magical properties. It was the woman's faith in God that had healed her (see Luke 8:45).

As several articles in this issue confirm, this kind of faith often begins with spiritual intuition, which leads toward a firm expectation of healing—toward faith in the supreme Power, which is God.
