When Jesus saw the invalid lying by the pool and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, Jesus asked him, “Do you want to get well?” The invalid replied and then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” How often do we find ourselves spiritually paralyzed waiting on a miracle? We are often waiting on miracles from man and material possessions. For example we may say, “If I could just win the lottery” or “If I would just get that promotion”.
Jesus is still asking today, “Do you want to get well?” The miracle we are looking for is found in Jesus, if we will just pick up our mat and walk with Him daily.
Prayer: Dear God, please surround us with your loving arms and remind us that all we need is you.
