Order Precedes Miracles Mentoring Moments, the 1 min blog
Just like the man in John 5, many of us have been in a crowd among blind, lame and paralyzed people. Perhaps it wasn’t a physically illness but we have been around people who are blind to the gospel, lame in complacency and paralyzed in sin.
Let’s see how Jesus handled this situation. He said is verse 8 & 9, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked….”
Jesus challenged this man’s way of thinking because it was out-of-order. Instead of asking to be healed, the man gave Jesus excuses as to why it couldn’t be done and focused his attention on those unwilling to help him.
What he needed was a word from the Lord. That’s the same with US! When we order our thinking so that we look to Jesus first for everything, we are positioned to receive orders directly from him. The man obeyed the word of God and receive a miracle. Wow! Are you in need of a miracle? Get your orders from Jesus and watch miracles happen.
Success and Progress!
