“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?

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.

Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” John 5:6-8 KJV

TELL ME, oh beloved, do you want to be made well? Do the migraines torment you? Does disease ravage your bones? Does your stomach roll and expel, no matter what you eat?

TELL ME, sweet child, what does you doctor say? What meds does he prescribe to rid you this infirmity? How has that been? Are you healed? Is your body clean of the sickness beneath its sinews?

TELL ME, joy of My soul, do you want to be made well?

Why then, do you rely only on man to bring you to the Pool of Bethesda? Do you not know by Who’s power the pool gives healing? The practice of medicine is good. The work of doctors is all well. But the wisdom of man can only comprehend a small fraction of My creation.

THEREFORE, come boldly to My throne, dear child; I wait to heal your infirmity.
