THERE IS A CONNECTION BETWEEN BLESSINGS AND OBEDIENCE
Sometime later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed. One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked. The day on which this took place was a Sabbath. Scripture Reading: John 5:1-9
This invalid man was lying there hoping that somebody might come and help him into the pool because he was unable to walk. Jesus commanded him to pick up his mat and walk when he saw him lying there. He obeyed and he stood up and walked, and he received his miracle. Even today, this word still applies to you. Nothing is stopping you from receiving your miracle.
Like this man, you might be experiencing paralysis in some areas of your life, where you feel you are restricted. The same power that worked in the lame man’s life shall work in your life. Through this word, the Lord Jesus is saying “Get up,pick up your mat and walk.” The healing anointing cannot pass you by. Believe as you read this and you shall be healed. And there shall be no disease, sickness or suffering that shall remain in your life.
The suffering and paralysis shall come to a stop in your life because the Lord is commanding you to rise and walk. It matters not the strength of the devil or demons that were assigned to cause sickness and suffering in your life. The healing of your body and your life has come, your miracle happens as you read this.
