IMPOSSIBLE: Trusting God for Impossible Healing

Exodus 2

 

“But the people of Israel were fruitful and increased greatly; they multiplied and grew exceedingly strong, so that the land was filled with them.” (Exodus 1:7, ESV)

 

“So they ruthlessly made the people of Israel work as slaves 14 and made their lives bitter with hard service…” (Exodus 1:13-14, ESV)        

 

"5 Now the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe at the river, while her young women walked beside the river. She saw the basket among the reeds and sent her servant woman, and she took it. 6 When she opened it, she saw the child, and behold, the baby was crying. She took pity on him and said, “This is one of the Hebrews' children.” 7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, “Shall I go and call you a nurse from the Hebrew women to nurse the child for you?” 8 And Pharaoh's daughter said to her, “Go.” So the girl went and called the child's mother." (Exodus 2:5-8, ESV) 


“11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.” (Jeremiah 29:11-12, ESV)

 

“One day, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and looked on their burdens…” (Exodus 2:11, ESV)

 

“23 During those many days the king of Egypt died, and the people of Israel groaned because of their slavery and cried out for help. Their cry for rescue from slavery came up to God. 24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered His covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob. 25 God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.” (Exodus 2:23-25, ESV)

 

“9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him. 12 But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God,” (John 1:9-12, ESV)

 

“See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are.” (1 John 3:1a, ESV)

        

“What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us” ~ A. W. Tozer

 

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9, ESV)
 

 

LIFEGROUP NOTES

 

IMPOSSIBLE: Trusting God for Impossible Healing
 

There are many parts of Sunday’s message that are demonstrative of a rewarding faith toward healing—a relentless commitment to the one whom is known as Jesus! Today’s study will look specifically at an example of impossible healing from Mark 5, where Jesus did what modern medicine could not do!


1.  There are, however, countless other stories in the Bible of a radical and impossible healing. Take a few minutes as a group and brainstorm some of them. Take the time to reflect on and discuss them. 


2.  What can we learn plainly about this woman from this passage?


3.  Knowing what we do of her, take a moment to speculate about this woman’s state of mind. What could we expect of her attitude?


Yet we still see this woman as determined as ever. She has not given up hope, she has merely heard reports of JESUS and realizes that this Man can heal her! She had so much faith in the power of Christ, that she only needed to touch His garments.  What a remarkable statement of faith and belief.  But what made this act so ‘full of faith?’ Why is this so radical? Let’s look to the scriptures!


4.  Why was it wrong for this woman to touch Jesus? (hint: Leviticus 15)


5.  In v30, JESUS perceived that power had left him. He turned to the crowd and asked, “Who touched me?” Even His disciples were perplexed at this (v31). Think about this…why did JESUS ask this question?


6.  So, what is the difference between the faith that healed her physically (v29) and the faith that healed her spiritually (v34)?

 

Impact Statement:


This woman had many reasons to give up, but she persisted in her faith and ultimately experienced healing. She truly exhibited a model of faith that we can learn from. JESUS could tell the difference between being touched with expectation and just being touched; this woman touched expecting to be healed.  How determined are you to find audience with Christ for healing—spiritual or physical? How radical and unrelenting is your faith?  Do you have the faith to reach out to GOD expecting to be healed?
