Strange Help.

Topic: Strange Help.

Text: Mark 2 vs 1-5,  Isaiah 28 vs 21.


God will arise today and do His strange works concerning me. He will grant me strange favours. He will offer me strange help and perform His strange acts in all areas of my life in Jesus' name. Amen.


Mark 2 vs 1-5 says that: "And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house. 2. And straightway, many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no,not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them. 3. And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four. 4. And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had brought it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay. 5. When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee"

The accounts of the help given this "sick of the palsy" could only be described as strange. His helpers were four, representing the four directions of the world; they milled through a difficult crowd to take him to Jesus but could not find a way. To achieve their aim, they removed the roof of another man's house( because the Bible did not say that the house belonged to the sick man) and brought him in contact with the Lord! They did not mind the threats of the owner of the house. They did not mind the bruises they are sure to have suffered in the course of going through the roof. They helped the man and he obtained healing!
Today, God will send such a help your way! Men and women will not spare any expense in helping you. The Bible talks about God's strange works and strange acts in Isaiah 28 vs 21: God will perform such works in your life in Jesus' name. Today's world is shrinking because help is hard to find. There is no help again in homes and offices. There is no help again in businesses and ministries and that is why crises and battles and troubles are common place. But YOU will find help today in Jesus' name. David was concerned about this type of situation in Psalm 4 vs 6 when he exclaimed: "There be many that say, Who will shew us any good?.....". No reader of this message will remain in this situation in Jesus' name.

Now, you may want to ask: where can one get strange help? The answer is Jesus! The Bible assures us in Mattew 28 vs 11 that Jesus offers rest and relieves us of heavy burden. Also, in. Psalm 62 vs 9 -10, the Bible warns us that there is no help in riches, position, individuals and in any manipulative ways. There is only help in God. It is important that we draw closer to this God and allow Him to work out new help for us.  Of course, help can be provoked by our seed of help which is bound to yield harvest of help. It can be triggered by our prayers and by following a lifestyle of help. In all of these however, it is God that will reward us with help and cause His face to shine towards us in Jesus' name.

Everybody needs help! The "sick of the palsy" was too weak to know where help was forthcoming but his helpers found a way for Him. You may not know what help you need in that situation: God will show you a green light soon. You need not be an emotional wreck: gather yourself together and pray. Every challenge of life is just a prayer away! All you need is a relationship with the Lord, trust and faith in Him and an open mind to receive instructions for a new glory. Don't look in any fixed direction because help does not always come from expected quarters! God is your help and He will show up soon in Jesus' name. Amen.
