6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent 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 saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
When you read this passage of scripture, immediately your attention is captivated by the fact that the impotent man answers the question Jesus asked Him through his feelings of sorrow related to his condition. Jesus asked, “Wilt thou be made healed?” The man answers saying, “I have no man to put me in the water.” The thing is Jesus never asked him if he had someone to put him in the water. Jesus simply asked, “WILL YOU BE MADE HEALED!”
This reminds me of myself and others Christians who walk through trials making excuses for receiving the blessing or even a healing we have been asking and praying for. As we’ve prayed regarding the infirmity or the increase we’ve desired, we look over the necessities that progress our healing mentally, spiritually, and physically. For instance; if your diabetic you shouldn’t eat candy unless it is candy regulated for diabetic diet. If your diabetic eating regular candy why would you expect a healing in your body? In reference to the scripture we create excuses, which delay and detain our blessings. We pray for a thing yet cause adverse effects regarding the thing were praying for. EXCUSES not to change, EXCUSES that detain our blessings like the impotent man who was fixated on there being no one there to help in the water. He is now in the scripture making excuses regarding his situation and Jesus only wants to know if he has faith to be made whole.
If your in need of a healing and your praying for it just receive It. Stay away from conversations that involves why you have not or cannot make the meeting with your healing. Step over into the realm of faith and receive what’s already yours! In Jesus name!
