When things don’t go as planned, it’s easy to be disappointed. See why your disappointment doesn’t have to lead to a dead end.

we give up so quickly the first time we
get turned away we go home the first

time we try the diet and slip from the
diet we blame it on genetics the first

person that doesn’t like us the first
person that doesn’t help us the first

time it gets a little hard many of us
are so quick to see disappointment as a

dead end not these men these men made a
decision if there’s no room for us

through that door we will climb up
here’s the word of the Lord if you can’t

get in go up if you can’t get through on
this level go up to a higher level

sometimes the reason God allows you to
be restricted is because you’re at the

wrong level and sometimes He’ll put a
disappointment in your life so you have

to climb over it so your faith

what do you do with the disappointment
somebody shout get over it

say it again get over it I know some
people didn’t like you didn’t promote

you didn’t endorse you didn’t support
you but get over it these men said

there’s something so important to us we
can’t stand here and blame the people

who got here early I think I’m going

now go home if you want to go home but
we’re gonna make a door in the ceiling

that’s how you deal with disappointment
you get over it

sorry Matt we tried I never let people
say to me we did all we could like point

zero zero zero zero zero zero one
percent of the time is that true it’s

just not true just say I did all I want
to do or say it’s not worth it to me

anymore but I’ll say you did all you

if these men had said they did all they could they tried they asked they showed up

they carry them they did a lot but the
answer was higher higher a higher level

of thinking I know it’s a small detail
in the text but it spoke to me

God said sometimes you’re thinking too
low and too limited and you’re so

disappointed because you’re not okay
help us Revelation chapter 4 verse 1

does John have anything to say about
this I believe he does he said after

this he’s on an island I looked and
there before me was a door standing open

where this door was not a door that was
right in front of me in my situation

this door was standing open in heaven so
I had to look up because when I looked

around all I saw was a crowd when I
looked around all I saw was a system

when I looked around all I saw was a
limitation when I looked around all

I saw was excuses but touch somebody’s
say look up because I promise you that

ceiling will become a door if you’re
willing to dig through it there’s

another door and they they made their
own door and while Jesus is preaching

the men are watching they lower their
friend at some point they had to drop

him they couldn’t get him all the way
down and now they’ve dropped him at the

feet of Jesus right in front of Jesus
Matthew says because they couldn’t find

a way in because of the crowd but
disappointment is a door so if they

could have gotten in the front door the
man would not have been in position to

be healed if it would have worked out
the way they planned for it to work out

if they would have given you what you
wanted them to give you you wouldn’t

have been in this position to get what
only Jesus can give so Jesus this is an

interesting phrase he saw their faith he
saw their faith when Mark writes about

faith he uses the the word faith in a
noun or a verb form four times and every

time he says faith it is attached to an
action so for mark faith is not a state

of mind for mark faith is not a
confession for mark faith is not

something that you say is something that
you see Jesus saw their faith and he

liked it and he saw what those men were
willing to do and he saw how they were

willing to press and he saw the rules
that they were willing to break and he

liked it and Jesus looked down at the
man and he said son I’ve got good news

I saw what your friends were willing to
do to get you to me and that kind of

faith is irresistible to me when I see
them unwilling to be normal and when I

see them dare to be different and when I
see them refuse to go home with a broken

heart but instead
to be in an unusable ridiculous way I

like that son and the minna minna up top
ergo her cuz we didn’t know if he was

gonna kick him out we didn’t know how
this was gonna go we didn’t ask

permission we just did it and they’re
watching and Jesus says son I saw their

faith and your sins are forgiven and the
men up top said wait a minute what do

you say
and what I’m said I think he said his

sins are forgiven and the other one said
but we didn’t bring him here for his

sins to be forgiven that’s nice but we
want him to walk yeah I reckon we still

gonna have to carry him home I was
hoping he’d do something about his legs

what do you do when God gives you what
you didn’t ask for okay

cuz that happens sometimes sometimes you
want God to fix your situation and he

starts working on you sometimes God
won’t do the most obvious thing for a

healer to do in the presence of a
paralyzed man is get him up

but the greatest opportunities aren’t
always the most obvious and jesus knew

there is something deeper that needs to
be done then this man’s condition is

suggesting externally son you’re
forgiven I’m gonna fix it in you before

I fix it for you hey thanks for watching
