Psalms 44:3-4 says – For they did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, Nor did their own arm save them; But it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, Because You favored them. You are my King, O God; Command victories for Jacob.
If you can turn into your bibles and start to read Mark 2: 1-11, we can secretly gaze into the full filling of Psalms 44. There are four men that are carrying a paralytic man to Jesus. Knowing, if they can give him an audience with Jesus, everything will change. Yet they are not able to get into the house, because there was no room to receive them. The four men went up on top of the house and tore the roof off and let down the twisted man in the presence of Jesus. This action or scene caused Jesus’ Love to be extended, to free a man that could not have free himself nor enter into any purpose or promises that God had for him. It is interesting that four men carried him into the face of Jesus. For in our Bible, there are four gospels that do the same for man kind. The gospels will get above anything that exalts itself above the knowledge of God and tear it down, only to place man in the face of Jesus to supernaturally comprehend the unmeasurable forgiveness and love of God that heals and washes all sin that mars and twists man’s life. We could say, the paralytic did not and could not gain possession of the land with his own power or sword, but by God’s right hand, His arm, and the light of His countenance. God commanded a victory for one of Jacobs descendants that day. He enter into the true promise land – Jesus Christ. This is what God wants to do for all men! To give freely man’s true life back that has been stolen and marred. Jesus fulfilled Psalms 44 that day.
