KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:6 KJV “When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?”
The Lord asked the impotent man, will you want to be made whole? His answer was, I have no man……The bible said, the Lord knew that he had been in that condition for thirty-eight years. He knew the man wanted to be healed, yet He asked him will you want to be made whole? I believe the Lord wanted him to say, yes, I want to be made whole. Certain challenges become so used to the people such that they accept that this is impossible to go. They have a number of reasons why nothing could be done about it. Why did the Lord ask if he wants to be made whole, although He knew the man needed healing.? The man’s answer showed what was on his mind. His thinking was, why was I not getting well, but should have been,
I want to be well. Many people complicate matters for themselves by focusing on the negative, rather than the positive side of life.
Jesus is always touched with the feelings of our infirmities. Heb 4:15 KJV “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. “Every difficulty or pain the Christian goes through is felt by the Lord. He appeared to Apostle Paul and asked, why are you persecuting me? Acts 9:4. Why did he not attend to the man early enough? The man did not call on him, he did not know him, nor believe in Him. Although the Lord will know your condition, it is your faith that takes the solution or answer
Many children of God, complain why is the Lord not answering me?
This is a very subtle error of most people. It is one thing for God to answer a request, and it is another thing for you to take the answer. As we have physical hands that possesses whatever is given to us,
faith is the invisible hands that takes from God. Mat 11:12 KJV” And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Dear brother, stop waiting for your answer and receive it because the Lord says He finished His works from the foundation of the world. Hebrews 4:3, 4. Faith knows it has received. It does not worry or ask why has the condition not changed? Faith thanks God and says, God has answered and I believe, and so I have my answer.
THOUGHT: GOD ALWAYS SIMPLIFIES MATTERS; IT IS MAN WHO COMPLICATES HIS MATTERS
Heb 4:3 KJV” For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.”
3 John 1:2 KJV” Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
