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.
And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, 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, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. Luke 5:18-20
The 4 men who carried the paralysed man had the faith that, if the sick man would be brought to Jesus, he would surely be healed. Until they carried and brought him to Jesus, there wasn’t any possibility of him being healed. That’s the beauty of fellowship 😊
If God has to do do something for us, He will first see our faith. Word of God says, But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6. It’s like — When we go to the store to buy stuff, depending on the money we have, only can we buy things. Faith is just like that. The man sick of palsy could not get himself come to Jesus on his own. He needed help to be carried and brought forth.
But, the 4 men who carried and brought him to Jesus had faith that he would be healed.
WHAT IS FAITH?
WHERE CAN WE GET FAITH ?
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
The more we read and hear the Word of God, that much more faith will increase. Sometimes, unbelief and doubt may creep in and make us doubt God’s Word. Nonetheless, we should not stop reading and hearing God’s Word nor stop praying.
May God help us all! ❤️
