2019 will be a year we go forward in the things of God to
fulfil our destiny. That which has caused paralysis in our walk with God,
is being healed. We are being unstuck to "fight the good fight of faith" (1 Timothy 6:12).
Look at this man with the withered hand. He goes to the synagogue like any other Sabbath. As far as he knows this is just another ordinary day. Wakes up, perhaps gets his wife and kids up for church; not thinking any more about it. But in the spirit something was happening, God was moving. There was a kiros moment at hand.
this man didn’t go to the synagogue believing he was going to get healed. He
didn’t initiate this moment. The Spirit did, and Jesus followed. Question, how
can Jesus possibly expect this man to stretch forth his hand? I mean if he could
do it, he’d already done it. But Jesus gave him a command for the impossible.
This isn’t the only account where we see Jesus commanding someone to do the impossible.
In Mark chapter two some people brought Jesus a paralyzed man who also has a kiros moment.
this account this man was paralyzed. It doesn’t tell us how or when this
infirmity occurred. And Jesus wasn’t too concerned about it. He was concerned
about their faith. When He saw their faith He simply said, "Arise, and take up thy bad, and go thy way".
In both miracles Jesus expected them to do what was impossible before. Now, it’s interesting to know, in the Greek, the word "withered" is associated with being burned.
You ever been burned through life? Went through something that left you scarred and deformed? Ever been through something that left you paralyzed? Others can run towards their destiny just fine. But not you. You’re stuck. But we serve a God who heals paralysis of all kinds, not just physical. Jesus gave him a command that was impossible! “Arise. Take up thy bed, and go thy way”.
That’s your word for 2019—Arise and go thy way. Stretch forth thy hand!
of us who have been burned in life, and left scarred, from perhaps a childhood
event, that thing is being healed now, and you will move forward in your
destiny and call of God on your life.
Now look at the man with the withered hand. The Word says it was made whole as the other. Jesus didn’t merely heal this man’s hand, he made it whole. It was completely restored!
The very issue that has held you back in your business is being healed right now. And not only healed but completely restored.
Whatever you couldn’t do before, you now can. If finances have always been a problem, it's being healed right now!
healing and restoring to fulfil destiny. This is not merely for our benefit
that we may use our hand again. He’s not healing and restoring finances simply,
so we can pay bills. Or healing relationships so we can get along with
everyone. But that we may bring the
Kingdom into the earth (Deuteronomy 8:18).
Kiros—is a Greek word which simply means “season” or “opportunity”. In this sense, it speaks of a divine opportunity.
Capernaum was Jesus hometown. He’d moved here after He left Nazareth.
This was Jesus house.
