Jesus told the man to stretch out his withered, paralyzed hand. Do what he couldn’t do. As he did, his hand was completely restored. When the Lord directs us to do the impossible, we can trust His ability. We may not have a hand that is withered, but we may be withered emotionally, financially, or physically. 

We cannot move because of pain and He’ll tell us to rise. We cannot forgive and He’ll tell us to forgive. A situation brings fear to our soul and He’ll tell us not to fear. The moment we obey Him, He touches the situation in unexpected ways. His authority comes with His ability. As we press through the natural, the unction to function flows from the Lord in and through us.

By faith we stretch out our withered conditions. We stand on the Word of God and trust His promises. The Lord desires and delights in touching and healing what we stretch out, believing in Him. He is able and faithful. As we obey His Word, His ability is released, from glory to glory!

Mark 3:5 “And when He had looked around at them with anger, being grieved by the hardness of their hearts, He said to the man, ‘Stretch out your hand.’ And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored as whole as the other.”
