Great Faith of 38 years

After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

2 Now there is in Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.

3 In these lay a great multitude of invalid folk — blind, halt, withered — waiting for the moving of the water.

4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool and troubled the water. Whosoever then first stepped in, after the troubling of the water, was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

5 And a certain man was there who had an infirmity for thirty and eight years.

6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had been in that state a long time, He said unto him, “Wilt thou be made whole?”

7 The infirm man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool; but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.”

8 Jesus said unto him, “ Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”

9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed and walked. – John 5:1-9

Moral: The man who was disabled for 38 years was healed by the words of Jesus Christ. That man was a most blessed man, because God Himself came and healed. Compared to others, they were healed by the troubled water of angel.
There is a great faith, we can learn from this man, he patiently waited for 38 years to receive healing. Our situation may be like that man, many years we would have prayed for certain things, but God would have delayed the answer. But soon Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself will come and deliver us from all our problems. Psa 91:15.
Let us not give up our hope, Let God give us Grace to continue in our prayer life.

Jesus our Rock

Jesus:  “For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?. Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.” – Luke 6:43-49

Believe in God

Jesus said unto him,” If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23

Without faith it is impossible to please God. Only when we believe God will do miracles.  When we doubt, we are underestimating God’s power.  Hence we must completely believe that God is able to do anything for us, since He shed His precious blood on cross , died & resurrected, He is living only for our sake. Let us pray to Jesus Christ so that He may give Grace to believe only in Him.
