The Four Fearless Faithful Friends
Ever wanted to get somewhere but couldn't? Needed to help yourself but you just couldn't raise yourself from your situation? So was the condition of the man sick with the palsy in Mark 2:3.
His condition had him bound, tied up, #feeble, and crippled. He was too weak and unable to move on his own. Yet, he was a son.
When we #face seasons that are #fearful and when our faith grows weary, GOD will send in #four #folks #full of #faith to help you. There exist God #fearing #friends who will climb up difficult situations, cut out roofs, and tear holes through walls in sweat and faith in order to help carry you up and drop you down into the presence of the One who can.
Whatever has you paralyzed today will soon be under your #feet. The LORD will not #fail you. You will soon take up your bed to walk again! Keep your eyes on Jesus! ~2017 Narda Goodson, Daily Doses of Gospel PiLLs
Scriptures to Meditate on:
Mark 2:1-12 - 1A few days later, Jesus went back to Capernaum. And when the people heard He was home, 2they gathered in such large numbers that there was no more room, not even outside the door, as Jesus spoke the word to them.
3Then a paralytic was brought to Him, carried by four men. 4Since they were unable to get to Jesus through the crowd, they uncovered the roof above Him, made an opening, and lowered the paralytic on his mat.
5When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.”
6But some of the scribes were sitting there and contemplating in their hearts, 7“Why does this man speak like this? He is blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”
8At once Jesus knew in His spirit that they were considering this within themselves. “Why do you question these things in your hearts?” He asked. 9“Which is easier: to say to a paralyzed man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, pick up your mat, and walk’? 10But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins...” He said to the paralytic, 11“I tell you, get up, pick up your mat, and go home.”
12And immediately the man got up, picked up his mat, and walked out in front of them all. As a result, everyone was amazed and glorified God, saying, “We have never seen anything like this!”
