Make a Way For the One: Week 2 - Day 1

Opening Prayer:

Lord search my heart today and show me your truth.  I want to see who you really are.

 

Read:   Mark 2:6-7  (NIV)

Now some teachers of the law were sitting there, thinking to themselves, “Why does this fellow talk like that? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

 

Reflect:

Jesus had just said to the man who was paralyzed your sins are forgiven.   The teachers of the law did make a correct statement when they said only God can forgive sins.  However, they were blind to the fact that Jesus was God in the flesh walking around in their world.  The answer to their own heart problem was right before their eyes, but they refused to see God’s answer.  Their vision of God was clouded by a heart that only wanted self.  Is our view of God lined up with His Word and big enough to embrace all He wants to do through us?  How often do we question because God is not working according to our plans and goals? 

 

Apply:

Make a list of the areas in your life that seem to be stuck and have no answer.  Pray over each item and ask God to show you what His perspective is for each struggle.  Watch and listen for God’s directions as He begins to solve and heal those difficult areas.  He will never fail you.

 

Closing Prayer:

God so many times I question your work in my circumstances.  Please forgive me.  I want the truth of Jesus to be at work in every area of my life.
