John 5:8 - You Are Stronger Than You Think.
John 5:8 (NLT) Jesus told him, "Stand up,
pick up your mat, and walk!"
Life feels stuck when you make no
progress. When you battle the same discouragement you
faced a decade ago or struggle with the same fears
you faced a year ago. When you wake up to the
same hangups and habits.
If that is you, then pay attention to the
promise of this miracle at the pool of Bethesda
(John 5). This Bethesda of your life? Others avoid
you because of it. Jesus walks toward you in the
midst of it and says, "Stand up, pick up your mat,
Stand up. Do something. Take action.
Write a letter. Apply for the job. Reach out to a
counselor. Get help.
Pick up your mat. Make a clean break with
the past. Clean out your liquor cabinet. Drop
the boyfriend. Put porn filters on your phone
and computer. Talk to a debt counselor.
And walk. Lace up your boots and hit the
trail. Set your sights on a new destination.
Believe in the Jesus who believes in you.
You are stronger than you think. [You Can Count
On God by Max Lucado]
