- The woman in the synagogue, most likely, was not expecting her healing,
she was probably there out of tradition or habit. When we attend a Church

"For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power",
1st Corinthians 4:20.
So many times we go to a church service expecting nothing and that is exactly
what we get, (nothing). "For as he thinks in his heart,
so is he", Proverbs 23:7.
- This also shows that it is God's will, it is His nature to heal. Jesus was
not asked to heal, the woman did not put a demand on Him, such as
the woman with the issue of blood, Jesus did not have
to heal, He just did. If we are receptive and willing, it is always God's will
