Everyone can attest to the fact that Jesus is the solution to all issues of life so Mighty is He that He can do ALL things. He alone can forgive sins and overwrite every handwriting or ordinance of judgement; whatever He does is unquestionable, unparalleled and incontestable. In Mark 2:1-12 when Jesus saw the fate of the paralytic man and the faith of his friends, He decided it was the right moment to bring the man of out of the bondage of paralysis and by the end of the day; the man became a wonder to many. He got instant results and went home not only healed of his paralysis but also justified. Welcome to February 2017: Our Month of UNDENIABLE RESULTS! And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, We never saw it on this fashion….Mark 2:12KJV. May God make you a living proof of undeniable results and a wonder unto many! All who know your story will be in awe and glorify God on your behalf. The Lord will come quickly to your aid and raise you out of the dungeon of helplessness. Your rising shall be unstoppable and the helpers you need come out of that unwanted situation will locate you. Helping you will not pose a problem because God will compel them to do all it takes in Jesus name.
The bible described the meeting as one made up of a large crowd so much so that there was no room for anyone to pass through yet only one man’s case caused people to say ‘we have never seen anything like this’ (Mark 2:12 CEV), only one man’s sins were forgiven; at times it’s not about the ‘crowd’ but the individual motive behind seeking Jesus. The man and his friends sought Jesus with one sole aim – to get help; their hearts must have connected to His in a way to make Jesus know they were true seekers. Are you a true seeker? If Jesus searches your heart will He find faith and an expectant heart or an uninterested heart, one so far away; will He find a genuine seeker or ‘one’ of the crowd. I pray that the faith you need to obtain undeniable results will rise up in you and you will move from being lost in the crowd to having unshakable faith that will move mountains in the mighty name of Jesus. The level of faith demonstrated by these men left Jesus with no choice than to attend to their friend. I cannot overemphasise the need for divine helpers, may God bring them your way this month in Jesus name.
Note that regardless of where the consequences of sin was coming from or any legality the devil may have had to have this man bound, Jesus said, ‘son, your sins are forgiven you’ (Mark 2:5). On that glorious day, his physical level not only changed but also his spiritual state; as a matter of fact, the spiritual before the physical! Everything that might have cut him off from the Master was removed, he became an adopted son. If you have not yet surrendered to Jesus, the right time is today. You too can become His son if you will open your heart and let Him in. If there is any power questioning Jesus’ authority over your life such will be silenced in Jesus name. Jesus who has the reply for every evil voice will answer all your adversaries like He replied the scribes in verse Mark 2: 6-11, And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—He said to the paralytic, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” Jesus did not only reply them; He demonstrated His OMNIPOTENCE! He showed forth as not only a talker but a doer! May He do for you what no man can do; may your life showcase His Almightiness in Jesus name.
Note the last verse was a call for action, Jesus said, ARISE! Your life must conform to My original plan and purpose; ARISE! You must make progress! ARISE! Your life must reflect undeniable results both physically and spiritually. There must be performance of God’s words in your life; that will be your own testimony this month in Jesus name. For the first time in a long while or even since he was born, this man walked. No wonder the people there were surprised. Your testimony will surprise both friends and foes alike. There will be a physical evidence for all to point to in your life; you will indeed ARISE! What you have been yearning to achieve for so long will be delivered to your hands very soon. The God of heavens will open unto you hidden treasures and abundant blessings. You and your children will be all that God has called you to be; your life will not be a shadow of what it ought to be in Jesus name. Jesus will bring your case into perspective and do the unexpected; He will leave you in awe of His powers. Get ready for your pleasant surprise! Shalom.
