Listen to the Message
 
{podcast Changing  What We Are Powerless To Change}
Mark 5:25-34
 
“God, I can’t do it without you.”
 
The Principle of Letting Go
 
“If I can touch the hem of His garment, I will be healed.”
 
The same healing power that changed that woman’s life is available to you today. 
 
1. You Must Let Go of Your Futile Efforts. 
  • To create change in your life, at some point you have to admit to yourself what is and isn’t working. 
  • If you have a problem that money can solve, you don’t have a problem, you have an expense. 
  • We often act as if we can buy off every problem we have, and it just doesn’t work that way. 
  • “This is a problem that money can’t make disappear.”
  • Where am I exercising futility in my own life?
  • Where am I wasting my efforts to create change?
  • You have to realize that this is something you can’t do on your own. 
2. You Must Let Go of Your Shame. 
  • No doubt she saw herself as unclean - as a second-class citizen. 
  • You can experience God’s healing power in your life. 
  • Go in peace and be freed from your suffering. 
  • You have to be willing to be open and honest about who you are and what you are struggling with. 
3. You Must Let Go of Your Doubt. 
  • But she had faith and she put it all in Jesus. 
  • Whatever her doubts were, she let go of them, and she acted on her faith. 
  • They doubt His willingness to heal someone as “worthless” as themselves. 
  • One touch was all it took, she was healed
  • Let go of your doubt, and reach out to Him in faith. 
  • If you really want to create lasting change in your life, it takes an act of God.
  • The Principle of Holding On (to Jesus)
  • He will give you the power to change your life forever.
