Choose Life (Part Twenty One)

Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?” (John 5:5-6, NKJV)

We continue this week with the story of the sick man healed at the Pool of Bethesda. [John 5:1-15].

The second reason why people get stuck in a rut is,
"They come to God, and/or approach life, based on SENTIMENTS, rather than COVENANT."
God does not respond to sentiments. He responds to His Word. His word is a statement of His covenant with mankind. It is not about how you feel or think about a thing. It is about the foundation on which your feelings and or thoughts rest. How solid is its foundation? That is what separates FAITH from PRESUMPTION. Unfortunately, the latter is more common than the former and is too often confused for it. Never forget, “it is not about our own agenda. It is always about God’s agenda. It is always about God’s glory. It is always about God’s purpose, not mine or yours either.”

God is God, and we are not.

So, where do you stand? Are you digging your foot in the ground and building a monument around your stance? Or, are you willing to draw near to life? Are you willing to draw near to God? Are you willing to make the shifts and adjustments to get and walk in the fullness of what the Father has for you? Will you come back home today, so He can make you? The Father has been looking out for you. [John 15:20] Please, come home and receive of His fullness.
