Part 6: Chapter 2 – Day 3: Be My Savior

Welcome to Day 3 of Part 6‘s Chapter 2 of Arise and Shine. Today, Anna is bringing forward the third free will offering of ram skins dyed red. And just in case you’re wondering: yes! God answered this prayer from long ago so beautifully. Yes! He does indeed birth breakthrough, through the love and prayers of our dear friends, ever reminding us that we are a family bound together in His love and Spirit-led intercession.

Be My Savior 

Show me, LORD
How to humble myself
To lay myself down
To allow my friends
To lower me down
To meet Your healing
And health for my bones.

Show me, LORD
How to forgive
What I cannot forget
To receive those
Who have turned me away
Again and again.

Show me, LORD
How to love freely
And release my anger
My fear
And control.

Become my Savior
And take over in me
Become forgiveness in me
Love growing in me
Lay me down.

Become my surrender
My lowering down through a roof
My trust
My faith
My healing
And health to my bones.

Be not just my teacher
But my Way
My Truth
My Life
My All.

Take over
And humble me
Beneath Your mighty hand
That I might cry with You
In one accord:

"Take this cup from me
But if not
Then not my will
But Yours be done."

17 One day He was teaching, and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the Law sitting there who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea, and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present for Him to perform healing. 18 And some men were carrying a man on a stretcher who was paralyzed; and they were trying to bring him in and to set him down in front of Him. 19 But when they did not find any way to bring him in because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and let him down through the tiles with his stretcher, into the middle of the crowd, in front of Jesus. 20 And seeing their faith, He said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven you.” 21 The scribes and the Pharisees began thinking of the implications, saying, “Who is this man who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, except God alone?” 22 But Jesus, aware of their thoughts, responded and said to them, “Why are you thinking this way in your hearts? 23 Which is easier, to say: ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? 24 But so that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,” He said to the man who was paralyzed, “I say to you, get up, and pick up your stretcher, and go home.” 25 And immediately he got up before them, and picked up what he had been lying on, and went home glorifying God. 26 And they were all struck with astonishment and began glorifying God. They were also filled with fear, saying, “We have seen remarkable things today!”

Luke 5:17-26 (NASB) (my emphasis: not it’s not the man’s own faith that gifts him God’s mercy, but his friends’. Isn’t that powerful?!
