Mark 2:3 “And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.”
Our focal scripture introduced a man who had a sickness called palsy.
This disease is a medical term which refers to various types of paralysis, often accompanied by weakness and the loss of feeling and uncontrolled body movements such as shaking.
This man had become paralysed by this strange disease. It is obvious from the story that he was active, walking and going about his business until he was struck down by this disease. We can deduce this from the actions of his friends who were desperate to get him back to health and normalcy.
Luke 5:18 “And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.”
Luke 5:18 further gave credence to this point. It shows that it was not his wish to develop palsy, the disease came and took a hold of him. It was not something he was expecting but he developed it all the same.
Palsy literally grounded this man. He could have gone to Jesus himself but palsy kept him at the same spot. This man became paralysed and could no longer help himself. His desires were stagnated, his hopes dashed. His aspirations became a mirage.
Paralysis nearly destroyed his life but for his friends who brought him to Jesus.
I have news for you today, whatever have stagnated your destiny is giving way today. There are different types of palsy in the life of a man. Palsy of health, spiritual palsy, palsy of funds, destiny and career.
Whatever be your own type; it must bow to the Master. The day paralysis meets Jesus is the very day it must give way.
Whatever had stopped functioning in your life must jack back to life today, in Jesus name. We don’t know what gave palsy the audacity to takeover this man’s body, but it did without asking for his permission. Hear this:
Isaiah 49:24 “Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered?”
