  • Kerry Shook: I think of Jesusour Mighty God and he says,
  • 00:00:02.519 --> 00:00:04.521
  • "If you'll elect me as theCommander in Chief of your life,
  • 00:00:04.554 --> 00:00:07.424
  • I will fight for you, I willbe your strong champion
  • 00:00:07.457 --> 00:00:10.593

  • 00:00:19.202 --> 00:00:22.238
  • Kerry: In this wild andtumultuous presidential campaign
  • 00:00:37.520 --> 00:00:39.722
  • season, we kicked off a newseries that offers an altogether
  • 00:00:39.756 --> 00:00:44.294
  • different option,Jesus for President.
  • 00:00:44.327 --> 00:00:49.532
  • Now, we believe that thiselection is very important for
  • 00:00:49.566 --> 00:00:52.068
  • our nation, and we believe thatChristians should vote and get
  • 00:00:52.102 --> 00:00:54.904
  • involved, and pray, and reallybe involved in government and
  • 00:00:54.938 --> 00:00:58.975
  • politics, but what we're gonnatalk about in this series is
  • 00:00:59.008 --> 00:01:03.746
  • even more important.
  • 00:01:03.780 --> 00:01:05.982
  • We're talking about somethingthat will make all the
  • 00:01:06.015 --> 00:01:07.917
  • difference in your life andrelationships, no matter who
  • 00:01:07.951 --> 00:01:10.019
  • gets elected in November.
  • 00:01:10.053 --> 00:01:12.122
  • We're talking in the seriesabout the Lordship of Christ,
  • 00:01:12.155 --> 00:01:14.724
  • about how to make him Commanderin Chief of your every decision
  • 00:01:14.757 --> 00:01:18.962
  • and that changes thegame right there.
  • 00:01:18.995 --> 00:01:22.632
  • And we're basing the wholeseries on a prophecy from the
  • 00:01:22.665 --> 00:01:25.168
  • Book of Isaiah, Isaiah 9:6.
  • 00:01:25.201 --> 00:01:28.471
  • It says, "For to us a child isborn To us a son is given And
  • 00:01:28.505 --> 00:01:33.676
  • the government willbe on his shoulders.
  • 00:01:33.710 --> 00:01:36.146
  • And he will be called WonderfulCounselor, Mighty God,
  • 00:01:36.179 --> 00:01:38.314
  • Everlasting Father,Prince of Peace.
  • 00:01:38.348 --> 00:01:40.850
  • So, the Prophet Isaiah wrotethis 600 years before Christ
  • 00:01:40.884 --> 00:01:44.654
  • was born.
  • 00:01:44.687 --> 00:01:46.890
  • He was saying, "Israel hold onbecause your Savior, the Son of
  • 00:01:46.923 --> 00:01:50.059
  • God, is on his way.
  • 00:01:50.093 --> 00:01:52.695
  • And the first time he comes,he's coming as a baby.
  • 00:01:52.729 --> 00:01:55.031
  • He's gonna wrap himself in frailhuman flesh and become one of us
  • 00:01:55.064 --> 00:01:57.734
  • so that we can relate to him,and so that he can communicate
  • 00:01:57.767 --> 00:02:01.237
  • his message of hope to us.
  • 00:02:01.271 --> 00:02:04.307
  • But the second time he comes,he's not coming as a
  • 00:02:04.340 --> 00:02:07.343
  • humble child.
  • 00:02:07.377 --> 00:02:10.780
  • He's coming as King of kings andLord of lords, and he's going to
  • 00:02:10.813 --> 00:02:14.918
  • set up his kingdom physicallyupon this earth to rule and
  • 00:02:14.951 --> 00:02:18.288
  • to reign.
  • 00:02:18.321 --> 00:02:20.723
  • He's going to set up his literalkingdom, and he's going to rule
  • 00:02:20.757 --> 00:02:24.727
  • and reign, and the wholegovernment will rest upon him
  • 00:02:24.761 --> 00:02:28.398
  • and his shoulders.
  • 00:02:28.431 --> 00:02:30.700
  • But until then, the kingdom ofGod is an internal kingdom for
  • 00:02:30.733 --> 00:02:33.203
  • those who allow him to rule andreign in their hearts and lives.
  • 00:02:33.236 --> 00:02:36.706
  • And the disciples were alwaysconfused about this, because
  • 00:02:36.739 --> 00:02:39.776
  • Jesus said, "The kingdom of Godis near, the kingdom of God is
  • 00:02:39.809 --> 00:02:41.711
  • right here in your midst."
  • 00:02:41.744 --> 00:02:43.746
  • And they were thinking, "Well,I guess he's going to set up his
  • 00:02:43.780 --> 00:02:46.149
  • political kingdom right here,and we're gonna be involved.
  • 00:02:46.182 --> 00:02:50.753
  • And I wonder who's gonna bethe greatest down here on this
  • 00:02:50.787 --> 00:02:53.756
  • earth, who's gonna be thegreatest, who's gonna be his
  • 00:02:53.790 --> 00:02:56.726
  • right-hand guy.
  • 00:02:56.759 --> 00:02:59.362
  • And Jesus said, "You don'tunderstand, yet one day, I'm
  • 00:02:59.395 --> 00:03:01.397
  • gonna return andset up my kingdom.
  • 00:03:01.431 --> 00:03:04.267
  • And the government, all ofrule will be upon my shoulders.
  • 00:03:04.300 --> 00:03:09.439
  • I'll rule and reign, but rightnow I'm doing something
  • 00:03:09.472 --> 00:03:11.774
  • more important.
  • 00:03:11.808 --> 00:03:13.710
  • I'm allowing you to have mykingdom in your heart and life
  • 00:03:13.743 --> 00:03:17.013
  • for all those who allow me torule and reign in your heart."
  • 00:03:17.046 --> 00:03:21.851
  • Now, I want you to underlinethe words, "Mighty God."
  • 00:03:21.884 --> 00:03:25.154
  • This is one of the four titlesfor Christ in this prophecy and
  • 00:03:25.188 --> 00:03:29.092
  • really, these describe hisleadership style, how he wants
  • 00:03:29.125 --> 00:03:34.897
  • to lead our lives, and it's allabout his character, his names
  • 00:03:34.931 --> 00:03:38.701
  • represent his character, oryou might think of it as his
  • 00:03:38.735 --> 00:03:42.305
  • campaign promises for your life.
  • 00:03:42.338 --> 00:03:44.674
  • And Christ always fulfillshis campaign promises.
  • 00:03:44.707 --> 00:03:47.610
  • Every one of hispromises, he fulfills.
  • 00:03:47.644 --> 00:03:51.314
  • So, we're taking them one at atime in this series and today
  • 00:03:51.347 --> 00:03:53.916
  • we're looking at how he wantsto be the Mighty God in my life.
  • 00:03:53.950 --> 00:03:58.655
  • Now, the words "Mighty God"in the Hebrew are the words
  • 00:03:58.688 --> 00:04:02.425
  • El Gibbor.
  • 00:04:02.458 --> 00:04:04.294
  • El always stands for God.
  • 00:04:04.327 --> 00:04:06.195
  • So, El is God and Gibborjust means strong warrior
  • 00:04:06.229 --> 00:04:10.667
  • and champion.
  • 00:04:10.700 --> 00:04:12.935
  • So, it's God, my strongwarrior and champion.
  • 00:04:12.969 --> 00:04:15.972
  • So, Jesus is saying, "If youallow me to be the Commander in
  • 00:04:16.005 --> 00:04:18.508
  • Chief of your life, then I'mgonna fight for you and be
  • 00:04:18.541 --> 00:04:21.844
  • your champion.
  • 00:04:21.878 --> 00:04:24.213
  • I'm gonna be your warrior.
  • 00:04:24.247 --> 00:04:26.482
  • I want to be yourchampion in life."
  • 00:04:26.516 --> 00:04:29.886
  • Now, every politiciansays this, don't they?
  • 00:04:29.919 --> 00:04:33.056
  • "I'm fighting for you.
  • 00:04:33.089 --> 00:04:35.491
  • I'm gonna fight forthe middle class.
  • 00:04:35.525 --> 00:04:37.894
  • I'm in this for you.
  • 00:04:37.927 --> 00:04:40.229
  • The whole reason I'm running foroffice is because I care
  • 00:04:40.263 --> 00:04:42.398
  • about you.
  • 00:04:42.432 --> 00:04:44.267
  • It's not about me,it's all about you."
  • 00:04:44.300 --> 00:04:46.703
  • And that's not always true.
  • 00:04:46.736 --> 00:04:49.372
  • Sometimes, I guess, they'resincere, but then they don't
  • 00:04:49.405 --> 00:04:52.408
  • seem to have the power to reallydo anything about it or fight
  • 00:04:52.442 --> 00:04:58.014
  • for us.
  • 00:04:58.047 --> 00:05:00.049
  • And so, I think of God though,I think of Jesus our Mighty God,
  • 00:05:00.083 --> 00:05:03.453
  • and he says, "If you elect me asthe Commander in Chief of your
  • 00:05:03.486 --> 00:05:06.556
  • life, I will fight for you.
  • 00:05:06.589 --> 00:05:09.392
  • I will be your strong championbecause I care about what you're
  • 00:05:09.425 --> 00:05:11.994
  • going through.
  • 00:05:12.028 --> 00:05:13.896
  • I care about the battles thatyou're facing, and then I have
  • 00:05:13.930 --> 00:05:15.832
  • the power to give you thevictory in those battles."
  • 00:05:15.865 --> 00:05:18.134
  • The Bible says we weremade in the image of God.
  • 00:05:18.167 --> 00:05:21.637
  • But today, it seems like we'retrying to make God into our
  • 00:05:21.671 --> 00:05:24.006
  • own image.
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:25.808
  • We try to fit God in our ownlittle box where he fits nicely
  • 00:05:25.842 --> 00:05:27.910
  • in our image of who we want himto be, but we have to let God be
  • 00:05:27.944 --> 00:05:34.650
  • who he is Mighty God, mighty,all-powerful God that can't be
  • 00:05:34.684 --> 00:05:38.454
  • controlled, andcan't be contained.
  • 00:05:38.488 --> 00:05:42.291
  • He can't be told what to do.
  • 00:05:42.325 --> 00:05:44.260
  • He has to be God in our lives.
  • 00:05:44.293 --> 00:05:47.130
  • I talk to people sometimesyou say, "Well, Pastor, I just
  • 00:05:47.163 --> 00:05:50.333
  • believe this about God, or myidea of God is" and they go on
  • 00:05:50.366 --> 00:05:56.406
  • to tell me their concept ofwhat they think God is like.
  • 00:05:56.439 --> 00:06:00.777
  • And I always want to say, "Whocares what you think God is
  • 00:06:00.810 --> 00:06:03.513
  • like, all that mattersis what God is like."
  • 00:06:03.546 --> 00:06:06.382
  • All we want to do isfind o what God is like.
  • 00:06:06.416 --> 00:06:09.519
  • C.S. Lewis said, "I don't wantmy image of God, I want God."
  • 00:06:09.552 --> 00:06:14.590
  • But we're always trying to makeGod into our own image because
  • 00:06:14.624 --> 00:06:17.927
  • we want to be God, we want tocall the shots in our lives.
  • 00:06:17.960 --> 00:06:20.663
  • And if I let God be God, then Ican't be God because he's
  • 00:06:20.696 --> 00:06:25.234
  • Mighty God.
  • 00:06:25.268 --> 00:06:27.437
  • He's the one in control, and Ihave to surrender my control
  • 00:06:27.470 --> 00:06:30.540
  • to him.
  • 00:06:30.573 --> 00:06:32.842
  • But we want to be God in ourlives, we want to call the shots
  • 00:06:32.875 --> 00:06:35.278
  • in every decision.
  • 00:06:35.311 --> 00:06:37.146
  • We think we know better than Godabout how to run our lives, and
  • 00:06:37.180 --> 00:06:39.916
  • so we get into a lot of troubletrying to make God into our
  • 00:06:39.949 --> 00:06:44.954
  • own image.
  • 00:06:44.987 --> 00:06:47.223
  • I'm made in the imageof God, but I'm not God.
  • 00:06:47.256 --> 00:06:49.559
  • Mighty God is justreserved for God.
  • 00:06:49.592 --> 00:06:53.196
  • Well, if I want Mighty God togive me the victory over my
  • 00:06:53.229 --> 00:06:56.966
  • greatest problems, to reallyexperience his overcoming power,
  • 00:06:56.999 --> 00:07:00.570
  • I have to let him bewho he is, Mighty God.
  • 00:07:00.603 --> 00:07:04.407
  • Now, what I want us to do islook at a woman in the New
  • 00:07:04.440 --> 00:07:06.742
  • Testament who encountered Jesusand who, with just a little bit
  • 00:07:06.776 --> 00:07:12.381
  • of faith, believed that he wasthe Mighty God, and she let him
  • 00:07:12.415 --> 00:07:15.785
  • be Mighty God in her life.
  • 00:07:15.818 --> 00:07:19.822
  • And he gave her the victoryover her greatest battle.
  • 00:07:19.856 --> 00:07:23.092
  • So, would you stand in honor ofGod's Word, Woodlands Church,
  • 00:07:23.125 --> 00:07:25.528
  • and open your Biblesto Luke chapter 8?
  • 00:07:25.561 --> 00:07:27.697
  • Wherever you are, we'repart of one church.
  • 00:07:27.730 --> 00:07:30.266
  • Follow along with me as we lookat this powerful miracle
  • 00:07:30.299 --> 00:07:32.134
  • of Christ.
  • 00:07:32.168 --> 00:07:33.970
  • "And a woman was there who hadbeen subject to bleeding for
  • 00:07:34.003 --> 00:07:36.172
  • twelve years, but noone could heal her.
  • 00:07:36.205 --> 00:07:39.041
  • She came up behind him andtouched the edge of his cloak,
  • 00:07:39.075 --> 00:07:42.345
  • and immediately herbleeding stopped.
  • 00:07:42.378 --> 00:07:44.413
  • 'Who touched me?' Jesus asked.
  • 00:07:44.447 --> 00:07:46.582
  • When they all denied it, Petersaid, 'Master, the people are
  • 00:07:46.616 --> 00:07:49.886
  • crowding and pressingagainst you.'
  • 00:07:49.919 --> 00:07:52.121
  • But Jesus said, 'Someone touchedme; I know that power has gone
  • 00:07:52.154 --> 00:07:55.591
  • out from me.'
  • 00:07:55.625 --> 00:07:57.627
  • Then the woman, seeing that shecould not go unnoticed,
  • 00:07:57.660 --> 00:07:59.729
  • came trembling andfell at his feet.
  • 00:07:59.762 --> 00:08:01.998
  • In the presence of all thepeople, she told why she had
  • 00:08:02.031 --> 00:08:04.400
  • touched him and how shehad been instantly healed.
  • 00:08:04.433 --> 00:08:08.304
  • Then he said to her, 'Daughter,your faith has healed you.
  • 00:08:08.337 --> 00:08:11.807
  • Go in peace.'"
  • 00:08:11.841 --> 00:08:14.510
  • You can be seated, and I wantyou to see in this miracle,
  • 00:08:14.544 --> 00:08:18.080
  • there are three things we findout about our Mighty God.
  • 00:08:18.114 --> 00:08:20.683
  • First, he wants to give me thepower to overcome my
  • 00:08:20.716 --> 00:08:23.619
  • biggest obstacle.
  • 00:08:23.653 --> 00:08:26.188
  • So, what's the biggestproblem you're facing?
  • 00:08:26.222 --> 00:08:28.124
  • Maybe you came in here todayand you can't get it out of
  • 00:08:28.157 --> 00:08:30.226
  • your mind.
  • 00:08:30.259 --> 00:08:31.827
  • You keep thinkingabout that problem.
  • 00:08:31.861 --> 00:08:33.496
  • It keeps coming back to you andgiving you that worried thought.
  • 00:08:33.529 --> 00:08:35.865
  • Those anxious thoughts fill upyour mind and heart because of
  • 00:08:35.898 --> 00:08:39.368
  • that obstacle that you justcan't seem to get through.
  • 00:08:39.402 --> 00:08:43.306
  • Let's look closer atthis miracle in verse 43.
  • 00:08:43.339 --> 00:08:48.010
  • It says, "And a woman was therewho had been subject to bleeding
  • 00:08:48.044 --> 00:08:50.413
  • for twelve years, butno one could heal her."
  • 00:08:50.446 --> 00:08:53.082
  • So, this woman wastruly desperate.
  • 00:08:53.115 --> 00:08:55.351
  • She had an illness for 12 years.
  • 00:08:55.384 --> 00:08:57.587
  • She'd gone from doctor, todoctor, to doctor, and no one
  • 00:08:57.620 --> 00:09:00.022
  • helped her.
  • 00:09:00.056 --> 00:09:02.024
  • No one knew what to do, andshe was labeled incurable.
  • 00:09:02.058 --> 00:09:05.962
  • But she was also broke.
  • 00:09:05.995 --> 00:09:07.863
  • She'd spent all her money onall these doctors, and now her
  • 00:09:07.897 --> 00:09:11.067
  • condition was worse.
  • 00:09:11.100 --> 00:09:13.069
  • She was facing a barrier shefelt like she could never
  • 00:09:13.102 --> 00:09:16.272
  • get beyond.
  • 00:09:16.305 --> 00:09:18.474
  • So, what is the greatestproblem you're facing?
  • 00:09:18.507 --> 00:09:20.610
  • What is that problem thatyou feel like you'll never
  • 00:09:20.643 --> 00:09:23.045
  • get through?
  • 00:09:23.079 --> 00:09:24.914
  • What is that hurt you feellike you'll never recover from?
  • 00:09:24.947 --> 00:09:27.016
  • What is that devastating hang upand destructive habit you feel
  • 00:09:27.049 --> 00:09:33.389
  • like that you cannever get over?
  • 00:09:33.422 --> 00:09:38.294
  • Here's the good news, from thismiracle, we see that when we're
  • 00:09:38.327 --> 00:09:42.565
  • at the end of our rope, that'swhen the Mighty God does his
  • 00:09:42.598 --> 00:09:46.035
  • greatest miracles.
  • 00:09:46.068 --> 00:09:47.937
  • She was at the end of her rope,and then she heard that Jesus
  • 00:09:47.970 --> 00:09:49.805
  • was coming through town andshe believed that Jesus was the
  • 00:09:49.839 --> 00:09:52.141
  • Mighty God.
  • 00:09:52.174 --> 00:09:54.243
  • And she began to have just alittle bit of faith that if she
  • 00:09:54.276 --> 00:09:56.679
  • could just touch him,she would be healed.
  • 00:09:56.712 --> 00:10:01.550
  • And so today, if you have justa little bit of faith, a little
  • 00:10:01.584 --> 00:10:04.620
  • bit of imperfect faith whereyou say, "You know what?
  • 00:10:04.654 --> 00:10:08.157
  • I can't fix this problem.
  • 00:10:08.190 --> 00:10:09.792
  • I can't get throughthis barrier.
  • 00:10:09.825 --> 00:10:11.460
  • I feel like the walls areclosing in, and I just feel like
  • 00:10:11.494 --> 00:10:13.763
  • I can never break through.
  • 00:10:13.796 --> 00:10:16.832
  • I give up.

  • greatest fears.
  • 00:12:08.744 --> 00:12:10.813
  • As a result of her sickness, shewas labeled incurable, she was
  • 00:12:10.846 --> 00:12:13.783
  • broke, she was destitute, butthat wasn't the worst of it.
  • 00:12:13.816 --> 00:12:17.686
  • Because of her bleeding andJewish custom in law, she was
  • 00:12:17.720 --> 00:12:21.190
  • considered unclean and everyoneshe touched would be
  • 00:12:21.223 --> 00:12:23.492
  • considered unclean.
  • 00:12:23.526 --> 00:12:24.994
  • So, she wasn't allowedto touch anyone.
  • 00:12:25.027 --> 00:12:26.996
  • She was ostracized by tcommunity and put outside the
  • 00:12:27.029 --> 00:12:29.398
  • community becauseshe was unclean.
  • 00:12:29.431 --> 00:12:32.802
  • And she wasn't allowed to touchanyone, so she hadn't felt human
  • 00:12:32.835 --> 00:12:36.338
  • touch and over 12 years.
  • 00:12:36.372 --> 00:12:39.041
  • She hadn't felt an arm go aroundher shoulder and say, "You're
  • 00:12:39.074 --> 00:12:42.845
  • gonna make it through."
  • 00:12:42.878 --> 00:12:44.613
  • She hadn't felt anyone holdher hand, or give her a hug
  • 00:12:44.647 --> 00:12:46.882
  • of encouragement.
  • 00:12:46.916 --> 00:12:49.185
  • She was totally rejected andexcluded from the community.
  • 00:12:49.218 --> 00:12:56.025
  • No one would touch her, and shewasn't allowed to touch anyone.
  • 00:12:56.058 --> 00:13:00.329
  • I don't know what her greatestfear was, but I can only imagine
  • 00:13:00.362 --> 00:13:03.332
  • that it was the fear of beingall alone for the rest of her
  • 00:13:03.365 --> 00:13:06.869
  • life, the fear of never beingable to touch anyone again,
  • 00:13:06.902 --> 00:13:13.542
  • never being accepted, neverbeing accepted into a family,
  • 00:13:13.576 --> 00:13:19.181
  • never being accepted,never being hugged.
  • 00:13:19.215 --> 00:13:22.885
  • I mean, the fear of being allalone for the rest of your life,
  • 00:13:22.918 --> 00:13:27.122
  • and maybe that'syour fear today.
  • 00:13:27.156 --> 00:13:30.593
  • Here's the great news, becauseof our Mighty God, he has the
  • 00:13:30.626 --> 00:13:35.698
  • power to help you overcomeyour greatest fear.
  • 00:13:35.731 --> 00:13:39.735
  • I want you to look at Luke 8:44.
  • 00:13:39.768 --> 00:13:43.439
  • It says, "She came up behindhim and touched the edge of his
  • 00:13:43.472 --> 00:13:46.275
  • cloak, and immediatelyher bleeding stopped.
  • 00:13:46.308 --> 00:13:48.544
  • 'Who touched me?' Jesus asked.
  • 00:13:48.577 --> 00:13:50.679
  • When they all denied it, Petersaid, 'Master, the people are
  • 00:13:50.713 --> 00:13:52.581
  • crowding and pressingagainst you.'"
  • 00:13:52.615 --> 00:13:55.584
  • This miracle shows me that theMighty God wants to give me the
  • 00:13:55.618 --> 00:13:58.721
  • power to overcomemy deepest hurt.
  • 00:13:58.754 --> 00:14:01.724
  • See, after the woman touchedJesus and he healed her and then
  • 00:14:01.757 --> 00:14:04.793
  • he said, "Who touched me?"
  • 00:14:04.827 --> 00:14:06.795
  • And the disciples said, "Well, Imean, everybody's touching you,
  • 00:14:06.829 --> 00:14:08.931
  • everybody's pressing in,everybody's trying to get
  • 00:14:08.964 --> 00:14:10.866
  • a piece of you.
  • 00:14:10.900 --> 00:14:12.701
  • I mean, what do you mean, Jesus?
  • 00:14:12.735 --> 00:14:14.370
  • That's kind of nuts.
  • 00:14:14.403 --> 00:14:16.138
  • I mean, we're all touching you."
  • 00:14:16.171 --> 00:14:17.907
  • He's like, "No,someonetouched me."
  • 00:14:17.940 --> 00:14:19.642
  • In Luke 8:46 it says, "But Jesussaid, 'Someone touched me; I
  • 00:14:19.675 --> 00:14:23.312
  • know that power hasgone out from me.'
  • 00:14:23.345 --> 00:14:25.681
  • Then the woman, seeing that shecould not go unnoticed, came
  • 00:14:25.714 --> 00:14:28.050
  • trembling and fell at his feet.
  • 00:14:28.083 --> 00:14:30.152
  • In the presence of all thepeople, she told why she had
  • 00:14:30.185 --> 00:14:32.321
  • touched him and how shehad been instantly healed."
  • 00:14:32.354 --> 00:14:36.492
  • So, when Jesus said, "Someonetouched me," he was saying, "I
  • 00:14:36.525 --> 00:14:41.497
  • know that someone reached outwith a little bit of faith, a
  • 00:14:41.530 --> 00:14:46.802
  • little bit of imperfect faith.
  • 00:14:46.835 --> 00:14:49.405
  • Someone reached out and let mebe Mighty God in their life.
  • 00:14:49.438 --> 00:14:54.777
  • Someone, at their point ofdesperation, at the end of their
  • 00:14:54.810 --> 00:14:57.680
  • rope, turned to me and reachedout and let me be Mighty God,
  • 00:14:57.713 --> 00:15:04.019
  • and I fought for them.
  • 00:15:04.053 --> 00:15:06.322
  • I became theirchampion with my power.
  • 00:15:06.355 --> 00:15:09.425
  • Someone who felt weakjust received my power.
  • 00:15:09.458 --> 00:15:12.494
  • Someone who felt like they werelosing the battle just won the
  • 00:15:12.528 --> 00:15:15.531
  • victory in my power.
  • 00:15:15.564 --> 00:15:17.633
  • Someone who felt like it was allover now has a new beginning.
  • 00:15:17.666 --> 00:15:20.669
  • Because of my strength, someonewho realized that I am the
  • 00:15:20.703 --> 00:15:25.040
  • Mighty God reached down andexperienced me giving them the
  • 00:15:25.074 --> 00:15:29.812
  • power to overcometheir greatest battle."
  • 00:15:29.845 --> 00:15:32.214
  • See, Jesus knew who touched him.
  • 00:15:32.247 --> 00:15:34.350
  • The woman knew Jesusknew who touched him.
  • 00:15:34.383 --> 00:15:36.418
  • Underline the phrase,"Seeing that she could not
  • 00:15:36.452 --> 00:15:38.420
  • go unnoticed."
  • 00:15:38.454 --> 00:15:40.255
  • I love that.
  • 00:15:40.289 --> 00:15:42.224
  • It's one of my favorite passagesin all Scripture, "Seeing that
  • 00:15:42.257 --> 00:15:44.526
  • she could not go unnoticed."
  • 00:15:44.560 --> 00:15:46.528
  • Unnoticed by who?
  • 00:15:46.562 --> 00:15:48.263
  • She could have goneunnoticed by the crowd.
  • 00:15:48.297 --> 00:15:50.065
  • They never noticed her.
  • 00:15:50.099 --> 00:15:51.867
  • They never cared about herproblems, and her pain, and her
  • 00:15:51.900 --> 00:15:54.903
  • deepest hurt of beingrejected and being an outcast.
  • 00:15:54.937 --> 00:15:58.874
  • They never cared abouther physical problem.
  • 00:15:58.907 --> 00:16:03.245
  • They never cared abouther emotional hurt.
  • 00:16:03.278 --> 00:16:06.782
  • She went completely unnoticedby the crowd, and she could have
  • 00:16:06.815 --> 00:16:09.284
  • continued to gounnoticed by the crowd.
  • 00:16:09.318 --> 00:16:12.421
  • But it says, "Seeing thatshe could not go unnoticed."
  • 00:16:12.454 --> 00:16:14.757
  • Unnoticed by who?
  • 00:16:14.790 --> 00:16:16.558
  • Jesus, he noticed her, and youcan never go unnoticed by Jesus.
  • 00:16:16.592 --> 00:16:24.500
  • Maybe no one else notices whatyou're going through, maybe no
  • 00:16:24.533 --> 00:16:27.336
  • one else gets it, maybe noone else really understands.
  • 00:16:27.369 --> 00:16:30.739
  • Jesus notices.
  • 00:16:30.773 --> 00:16:33.475
  • He's the great noticer.
  • 00:16:33.509 --> 00:16:36.045
  • He sees past the smiles on ourface, and he sees the wounds
  • 00:16:36.078 --> 00:16:38.881
  • in our hearts.
  • 00:16:38.914 --> 00:16:40.816
  • When we put these smiles on ourface and act like we've got it
  • 00:16:40.849 --> 00:16:43.485
  • all together, when on theinside, we're bleeding,
  • 00:16:43.519 --> 00:16:45.821
  • we're hurting.
  • 00:16:45.854 --> 00:16:47.823
  • I mean, everybodycarries hidden hurts.
  • 00:16:47.856 --> 00:16:50.592
  • I don't knoweverything about you.
  • 00:16:50.626 --> 00:16:52.728
  • I don't know hardly anythingabout you probably, but I know
  • 00:16:52.761 --> 00:16:54.997
  • this, you have a hidden hurt.
  • 00:16:55.030 --> 00:16:57.633
  • You have wounds.
  • 00:16:57.666 --> 00:17:00.169
  • And maybe no one else notices,maybe no one else knows.
  • 00:17:00.202 --> 00:17:02.971
  • Jesus knows, and he cares, andhe has the power to help you
  • 00:17:03.005 --> 00:17:06.075
  • overcome your deepest hurts.
  • 00:17:06.108 --> 00:17:08.377
  • You'll never gounnoticed by him.
  • 00:17:08.410 --> 00:17:12.648
  • No one else may notice, butJesus will look past the smile,
  • 00:17:12.681 --> 00:17:16.385
  • and he'll see your hurt.
  • 00:17:16.418 --> 00:17:18.720
  • Maybe you feel like this womanthat you feel like you're in a
  • 00:17:18.754 --> 00:17:22.224
  • desperate place and you're ata dead end, just reach out and
  • 00:17:22.257 --> 00:17:25.861
  • touch the Mighty God.
  • 00:17:25.894 --> 00:17:28.864
  • In fact, the psalmist said inPsalm 34:18, "The Lord is close
  • 00:17:28.897 --> 00:17:33.435
  • to the brokenhearted Andsaves those who are crushed
  • 00:17:33.469 --> 00:17:36.105
  • in spirit."
  • 00:17:36.138 --> 00:17:38.140
  • So maybe you don't feel likeyou're an overcomer right now,
  • 00:17:38.173 --> 00:17:39.942
  • maybe you just feel crushedunder the weight of the burdens
  • 00:17:39.975 --> 00:17:42.978
  • and problems in your life.
  • 00:17:43.011 --> 00:17:45.147
  • It says here thatGod is close to you.
