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 broken 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.
Do you feel like your door has been blocked? We all have been in a place where it seems as if our plans, visions, dreams, or goals were not going as we had intended. Well, I come today to serve notice that nothing can stop what God has ordained to happen in your life. The scripture Psalm 139:13-14 states, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb”. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well”. God ordained our lives in our mother’s womb and there is no devil that can stop blessings that God has for you.
These four men are evidence of a block doorway will not hinder them from taking their paralytic man to be healed. Since they could not enter in the doorway, they thought out of the box and used the roof. Although the door was blocked, God touched the minds of the four men to strategize another way in. Jesus recognized the four men’s faith to get around the crowd. It was the faith of the four men that not only allowed Jesus to heal the man, but allowed Jesus to forgive his sins. The forgiveness of the sins was more valuable than the healing of the paralysis.
Use the roof, if devil tries to block your door from your blessing. Pray harder, fast longer, shout louder and dance harder because it only makes you stronger and wiser. At the name of Jesus, every demon must flee.
I refuse to allow the devil to block my blessings and steal my victory. I declare and decree victory in the blood of Jesus. Jesus you are a strong tower! A mighty battle axe and in You I will trust.
In the name of the Wonderful Savior,
