You need to “stretch out your hand”. Whatever this means to you friends. It maybe be try it again, apply, submit, ask, go, walk, step out, do something! You must stretch out your hands!
Just imagine how many times this man must have stretched out his hands to look at it. He must have wept as you weep when you are overwhelmed by the issues of your life.
Yet, Christ beckons you to stretch your faith and look at that issue again.
Mark 3: 3 Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “stand up in front of everyone.“
4 Then Jesus asked them, ” which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill? But they remained silent. 5. He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distress at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, ” stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. 6. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus.
Many a time the Lord want to do somethings in our lives, but the Pharisees and the Herodians, will kick against it because they do not want the Lord to showcase His Almightiness in you. In such instances friends, learn to listen to the promptings of the Holy Spirit and obey the voice of the Lord Himself.
Regardless of the approval of man, Christ Jesus will and is fulfilling His great pleasure in you.
Can you not see the outstretched hand healed? Your heart softened, your body totally healed, your perspectives changed, can you not see my friends?
God is doing a new thing in you! He is showcasing His love and power! Be grateful.
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
