Do you need forgiveness this day? Perhaps there’s someone you need to forgive — someone waiting for you to release them. Maybe God has been waiting for you to give what you’ve been given so that you can receive what the paralytic (Mark 2) received: healing.
Paul reminds us of this in II Corinthians 12:9. During a time of extreme duress in his life, the Lord Himself told Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.”
