23Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?
24But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.

UP LIFTING – ARISE UP
1Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
LET ME NOT BE ASHAMED
2O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
LET THEM BE ASHAMED…
SHOW ME, TEACH ME, LEAD ME, I WANT YOU
4Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
5Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
6Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD.
DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO, WHERE TO GO, HOW TO LIVE?
8Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
9The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
HE FORGIVES THAT WE MAY GET OUT FROM UNDER THE LOAD
11For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
THE LORD GUIDES THOSE WHO FEAR AND REVERENCE HIM
12What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
REST FOR THE WEARY AND HEAVY LADEN
13His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
A SECRET PLACE?
14The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
MY RESCUE. KEEP LOOKING UP
15Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
HELP FOR THE DEEPEST TROUBLES
16Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
