They couldn’t bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, so they dug a hole through the roof above his head. Then they lowered the man on his mat, right down in front of Jesus. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “My child, your sins are forgiven.”… Then Jesus turned to the paralyzed man and said, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and go home!” Mrk:2:4,5,10b,11. These men knew that Jesus could heal their friend, if they could just get close enough to Jesus. They had heard or even seen what Jesus can do. Jesus is the same today as He was back then. We have already received His promises in His Word, we just need to step into them by faith, declare them over our lives and keep praying, and as we press into Jesus they will come to pass. Thank Jesus today that as we trust Him, the promises established in His Word are there for us now as we declare them over our lives and the lives of others.
