"He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. Revelation 21:7
In Mark chapter 2 there is a story about four men who carried a paralytic to Jesus to be healed. When they couldn't get close because of the obstacle of the crowd, they ..."uncovered the roof where Jesus was and when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying. When Jesus saw their faith..." You know the story. Jesus did what He always does when He gets a glimpse of faith. He forgives sin, heals and restored a life.
In Exodus 17:11-12 we see a time when Moses needed the help and support of a friends to be able to do what was needed for Joshua and the army of Israel to overcome the Amalekites. ...And so it was, when Moses held up his hand that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses' hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
In both these cases there was someone to help do what needed to be done to overcome! Those four friends did what they had to when they went to extreme measures and got him up onto and through the roof. They knew that if they could put him in the presence of Jesus it would be enough! Aaron and Hur physically had to support the arms of Moses all day long till the sun went down in order to overcome the enemy.
Today is about being a friend that is willing to overcome obstacles! Today is about being the support that is sometimes needed to win the victory! Caleb quieted the people before Moses and spoke these words "Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it." Numbers 13:30 Today, these are my words to you! It is time to overcome! If you have a friend that has been paralyzed by whatever? Lift them up! Jesus saw 'their' faith as the paralytic was dropped through the roof. If you have someone you care about that needs some extra help or support, do what needs doing. Lift them up. Get them before him. Lay hold of their healing for them. Support them in whatever way they need. Today is about overcoming the obstacles that have prevented them from being in His presence. The crowd was an obstacle; they went through the roof. Moses' heavy arms were an obstacle to overcoming; they plopped him on a rock and supported his arms.
Jesus said, "These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." John 16:33 Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit overcame death, hell and the grave. Jesus and that same wonder working power can overcome whatever you got going! Whatever has you paralyzed at the end of this day people around you will be declaring the same things that the crowd declared as that paralytic and his friends left... "We have never seen anything like this!"
Lord, we are here today to take ground for the kingdom on behalf of those we love. Lord, right now we are breaking through roofs, finding rocks to support and lifting up heavy arms. Right now we are putting them before you in faith, Lord. Even now, in this moment we would stand in the gap for them just as you did for us as you suffered on the cross. Lord, at this very moment I can see the time when you healed ten lepers in a single moment. Lord, I know that you are well able to touch every person; every need that is being lifted up to you. Lord, touch blood pressure, blood sugar, and kidney issues. Lord, we speak health, wholeness and restoration! Lord strengthen hearts! Renew vision! Lord, touch and raise up those that are paralyzed both physically and spiritually! We speak, loudly and clearly, and with the utmost confidence and faith to any and all fear that; We have overcome!
