To expect is to believe with faith. When God gives you a Rhema word, you can expect it to be fulfilled. Mark 10:27 refers to things being impossible for someone trusting in wealth, but with God all things are possible. It is impossible for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Jesus was looking intently at His disciples, because He was giving them something deep. You can limit God by not remembering His power (Psalm 78). Psalm 105:1-2 says that we are to proclaim His deeds among the people, and tell of His wondrous works.
[Individuals shared their testimonies.] In Mark 2:1-12 Jesus saw their faith. Your faith can make a difference for someone else. He forgave the paralytic’s sin before He healed him. Sin can short-circuit healing. Condemnation can get in between. Conviction pulls you to the Lord, but condemnation separates you from Him. What was the result of Jesus’ and the disciples’ miracles? They led people to glorify God or led them to salvation. Examples of this are: John 2:1-11; John 2:23; John 3:1-2; John 4:46-54; John 5:36-37; John 10:24-38; John 11:4-45; Acts 5:12-16; Acts 9:32-35, 36-43; Acts 13:1-12; Acts 28:1-10; John 14:1-14; and Matthew 5:14-16. Miracles are so people can see His good works and glorify God and be led to salvation.
