Stand Up and Walk!

"Jesus said to him, Get up! Pick up your mat and walk." John 5:8

I had a conversation with a man last week. He is very intelligent, but has made a series of bad decisions in his life. He commented to me that now in his early sixties, he understands that the corporate job or administrative position is impossible. He has taken a job in maintenance at our local airport. I complemented him for doing something simple, but yet profound. He picked up his mat and began to walk.

There are many people in the same position. They are wearily watching the pool for something to happen, but no angel comes. They think they only have one chance to change their situation, and nothing happens. They are waiting for some singular emotion, remarkable impression, or celestial vision; they wait in vain and watch for naught. It is a very sad reflection that tens of thousands of people are now waiting for some governmental program, some societal shift, or benevolent foundation, when they have the capacity within themselves to change their situation. All they have to do is to pick up their mat and walk.

Jesus can heal every situation. At the core of His healing power is that you trust and believe in Him. He can send angels and d the miraculous. Yes, He can. However, when you learn to trust Him, you will find a power available to you that can move mountains - faith.

Faith is the key to unlock any door. Faith has no boundaries. Faith has no limits. Faith is available to everyone, regardless of their situation.

O ye of little faith, pick you your mat and walk. God will sustain you in your journey!
