...they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus. And when he saw their faith... Luke 5:19-20
Faith is revealed or seen in your words or actions. Take at least one action in total faith today by saying it and then acting. Example: Affirm and believe that you will find a great parking space and ACT on what you believe. While Jesus was in a house teaching, some men brought their friend to Jesus to be healed. The man had cerebral palsy and was bed-ridden. Cerebral palsy is an umbrella term for a group of disorders affecting body movement, balance, and posture. Loosely translated, cerebral palsy means "brain paralysis." Cerebral palsy is caused by abnormal development or damage in one or more parts of the brain that control muscle tone and motor activity. The crowd was so large that these men could not get to Jesus. But rather than give up defeated, they determined to find a way to get their friend to Jesus. They demonstrated faith and climbed onto the roof and through an opening in the tiling they lowered the man, bed and all into the room before the Lord. When Jesus “saw” their faith, He healed the man. How visible is your faith?
Application: Read Luke chapter 5.
Affirmation: “I abide in God and His Word abides in me, so I act on the Word and I believe I receive it by faith. Jesus is Lord over my situation, so I do not fear or worry about what I’m going through because I released my faith and God’s will is being done in my life right now.”
As you pray this you are praying God’s perfect will, because you are praying the Word back to God. Do it in faith and you will see phenomenal results.
I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of our understanding being enlightened; that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. In Jesus Name, Amen.
