No Contradictions

3rd January 2022

Scripture Reading: Mark 3: 1-5


“And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.” (Mark 3: 1)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of how Jesus came into the synagogue, and met a man there who had a withered hand. The scripture called the person who had a withered hand a ‘man’. So that man had made progress, but his hand was withered. He had grown to become a man, but his hand was paralyzed and atrophied. He had grown to become a man, but a part of his life was dysfunctional. He made progress as a man, but there was a draw back.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2022, your life will not be a mix of progress and setbacks. You will not be an example of one that God has helped, yet in the midst of affliction. You will not be an example of one who is serving God but without tangible evidence of God’s goodness. You will not be an example of one whom God has accepted, and yet suffer rejection where it matters most. Your life will not be a contradiction.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: your growth will not be marred with negativity. Your progress will not be mixed with difficulty. Your advancement will not be mixed with satanic affliction. Your successes will not be mixed with tragedies. Your open doors will not come with stagnation. The blessings of the Lord upon you will not come with sorrow. The goodness of God upon you will not be laced with issues that will make men to mock you.

That man with a withered hand came with legs that were working, and a hand that was not working, but in the end, Jesus made sure that all things were working. Whatever be the contradiction in your life, get set: in 2022, Jesus will cause all things to work. In 2022, Jesus will cause what has made men to laugh at you, to become a reason why men will laugh with you. In 2022, Jesus will deal with your withered hand.

The days of negative contradictions are over. The doors of negativity are closed for good.


In 2022, no negative contradictions, in Jesus’ name!
