Timely Truth (1)

by Gicky Soriano

When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he had been there a long time, he said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”—John 5:6

 

In the years 1014-1035 a Danish King named Canute ruled over England.  He grew tired of hearing the extravagant praises of his greatness, power and invincibility.  The king’s advisors claimed he was “So great, he could command the tides of the sea to go back.”  So, he had his throne carried to the seashore and sat on it.  As the tide came in, he commanded the waves to advance no further. When the waves rose up and wet his clothes, he had made his point that.  Though the deeds of kings might appear ‘great’ in the minds of men, they were as nothing in the face of God’s power.

 

The first step in dealing with issues in your life is to recognize your need and go to the One who has the power to help you. Only Jesus can save you and only he has the power to change your life.

 

The blind man believed what he had been told—that if by some magical way the water was stirred and you were the first to get in then you would be healed.  He spent all his time and energy chasing after that dream. He did not recognize that the One who was speaking to him was the real Healer.  

 

Have you been chasing some other form of healing in your own life?  Like thinking the key to healing your marriage was just being a little nicer or the solution to a happy family meant just making a little more money. Go to Jesus.  Only he can change you to be the person you want to be.
