Don´t be trapped in your circumstances


Today I wish to share with all of you this very important message I read today in my plan. Enjoy it!

Get Up and Clen Up!

In John 5, there´s a story about a man who I believe represents a lot of people who refuse to change.

During a Jewish feast in Jerusalem, Jesus visited the Bethesda pool where sick people gathered, hoping to get healed. One of the people waiting to get healed was a man who had been crippled for 38 years. When Jesus saw him, He asked if he wanted to be healed.

To me, the man´s answer tells us why he hadn´t been healed in 38 years. He said, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred.” Bottom line, the man was avoiding responsibility.

His second problem was that he blamed others. The man said, “While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”

How did Jesus respond? Jesus didn´t feel sorry for him. Instead, Jesus said, rather sternly, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” For change to occur in your life, you can´t be a prisoner of your circumstances. Know that God is willing to help you today. You just have to decide to trust Him, get up, and actively pursue the freedom He´s giving you.

Prayer Starter: God, I don´t want to be a victim of my circumstances. I want to change. I recieve Your strength and Your freedom today. I believe that real change can occur in my life as I walk with You.

Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.”

John 5:8 (NIV)
