335 Intercession

“When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven,’” (Mark 2:5).

I always seem to be asking questions, Lord! In this incident, the bearers of the stretcher had the faith, yet Jesus spoke to the paralysed man and said his sins were forgiven. How could forgiveness be granted on someone else’s faith? Does this have a lesson for us on intercession?

The task of an intercessor is that of these four unnamed men: to bring the needs of others to Me, believing that I will hear and act. Because I know the hearts of all men, My response may not be what your rational mind expects. But it will always be right.

My Spirit revealed to Jesus the greatest need of this man, something that had to be dealt with before healing was possible. The things of the Spirit do not come through your rational mindset which is influenced by your culture, past training, worldly input and personal desires. When you wait to hear the voice of the Spirit before you pray, you too will know what to ask for.

Not only in prayer, but in understanding every situation that presents itself to you, you  need the enlightening of the Spirit to show you how to react. What He did for My Son He will also do for you.
