“Yes – But”

Meditating on John 5:5-7 the other day.

Jesus was walking around the pool of Bethesda. Lots of sick people hanging out there waiting for an Angel to stir the water. The first one in got healed. Jesus focused on one guy and asked him “Do you want to be healed?” Infirm for thirty eight years, the guy’s response was….
                                                    “Yes But”, “I have no one to help me into the water”.
“Helplessness and Hopelessness are the work of the enemy.
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.
Jesus came with truth, grace, hope, and healing love. Next time you are sitting around feeling sorry for yourself because of situations that “appear” to be out of you control…Why not turn every aspect of your life over to Jesus and let His Word over ride your own “Yes But”.
Keeping it simple,
Loving the Lord and you,
