“And learn to do right…” (Isaiah 1:17 GNB)

I resolved to make learning my daily and continuous experience. Therefore, I consistently read, study, observe, meditate, follow and gracefully practice what I learn—all in the bid to become the best version of me. I’m always inspired by the words of best selling author and coach, Jack Canfield— “Personal development and growth is a never-ending journey.”

In this fourth series, we shall continue with our learning experience by drawing further lessons from the healing of the paralytic man as recorded by Mark in the second chapter. I pray you learn, grow and develop with me.

Here are the lessons:

1. Abnormal thinking and actions are required to achieve uncommon results.

Your thoughts determine your actions, your actions determine your habits and your habits determine your habitat and the results you command. If you think ordinary thoughts it will only produce ordinary results. While extraordinary curious and creative thoughts will surely produce innovative results. Remember what God said in Genesis 11 — “And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.”

The four friends of the paralytic man were abnormal thinkers — no wonder they acted abnormally which led to an uncommon miracle with uncommon remission of sin. Therefore, be an abnormal thinker!

2. Over analysis of the cost of actions can lead to paralysis of vision or opportunity.

If those four friends had engaged in the analysis of the costs of removing the roof of a stranger’s house, they would have missed the opportunity to write their names in the annals of destiny. They had a sense of urgency— knowing fully well that any delay or over analysis could further paralyze the paralytic man or even lead to his death.

Hear this: the business of destiny demands some haste without hurry! When you are prepared, you don’t waste opportunities by your over-analysis— you make haste to avoid the waste. “And David said unto Ahimelech, And is there not here under thine hand spear or sword? for I have neither brought my sword nor my weapons with me, because the king’s business required haste.” (1 Samuel 21:8)

3. The veil must be lifted for the ministry of Christ to be real.

Metaphorically, the crowd, the closed entrances and the roof were the veil that covered Christ from being accessed by the paralytic man through his friends. But thank God for the revelation to lift the veil of the roof in order to access the healing savior.

Today, the god of this world through religion, culture, traditions of men, vain philosophies, and wrong beliefs has blinded and robbed many the opportunity to experience the reality of the ministry of Christ. Jesus Christ saves, heals, delivers, beautifies and empowers in every sense of it. Therefore, it behooves on us to lift every limiting veil and experience the possibilities of Christ. Isaiah in prophecy, graphically declared what happens when the veil is lifted.

“And he will destroy in this mountain the face of the covering cast over all people, and the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the Lord hath spoken it.” (Isaiah 25:7-8 )

I see God unveiling to you the hidden mysteries of Christ that will make you a master of life and circumstances in Jesus Christ Name!

Watch out for the concluding part…

It’s your turn to be beautified!
