I HAVE NO MAN TO HELP ME!!

I HAVE NO MAN TO HELP ME!!

The lame man at the pool of Bethesda is a classic story of many of us.

This man was in same predicament, same situation, same circumstance for 38 years!!

He was on SAME SPOT TRYING TO ACCESS HIS MIRACLE.

A MIRACLE BY THE POOL.

The pool of Bethesda had been said to heal any impotent person once in a year when an angel stirred it up.

But you needed to step into the water to be healed.

You needed to find your way just after the stirring.

Now, after 38 years of TRYING TO STEP INTO THIS WATER, this man had gotten so used to this RIVER AS THE SOURCE OF HIS MIRACLE, even though he had experienced no Miracles.

We was so near to his miracle, yet so far.

But one thing had happened to him, he seemed to have forgotten EVERY OTHER WAY GOD COULD HEAL HIM APART FROM THIS RIVER.

THE RIVER HAD NOT JUST BECOME A HOPE, IT HAD BECOME AN IDOL.

HE HAD BECOME OBSESSED WITH THE RIVER SO MUCH THAT EVEN WHEN THE HEALER CAME TO HIM, HIS ONLY DESIRE WAS TO ENTER THAT POOL.

I HAVE NO MAN TO LIFT ME INTO THE RIVER.

I HAVE NO MAN TO HELP ME STEP INTO THIS RIVER.

I HAVE BEEN TRYING FOR 38 YEARS.

I HAVE MISSED IT FOR 38 YEARS, NEXT YEAR, I WILL TRY AGAIN!!

John 5:6-9 (KJV) When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

Jesus’ question was DIRECT; WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?!

Jesus didn’t ask ‘CAN I MOVE YOU INTO THE RIVER’?!

CAN I STICK WITH YOU UNTIL THE NEXT TURNING OF THE RIVER AND THROW YOU IN?!

Nope. Jesus was concerned about WHAT THE MAN TRULY NEEDED, HE NEEDED A HEALING, BUT 38 YEARS OF FOCUSING ON A RIVER HAD MADE THE RIVER BECOME AN END IN ITSELF.

Many of us today are need of financial resources, our focuses are already on a particular Job. We have applied over and over and over again. We are BENT ON HOW THE FINANCIAL RESOURCE WILL COME OUR WAY.

The question is ‘DO YOU NEED GOD TO SUPPLY OR YOU NEED HIM TO SUPPLY IN A PARTICULAR WAY THAT SEEM POPULAR TO YOU’?!

DON’T LET THE MEANS OF THE MIRACLE GET IN THE WAY OF THE MIRACLE.

Some of us are bent on receiving financial help from our relations outside the country, and in the process, we forget WHAT WE REALLY NEED, WE ARE CONSUMED WITH THE CHANNEL THROUGH WHICH THE MIRACLE WILL HAPPEN.

How about we throw the gates open.

And open our hearts to the VERY MANY MEANS GOD WILL MEET OUR NEEDS.

How about we become FLEXIBLE TO GOD’S WISDOM.

How about we allow Him show us the way, at this time.

Maybe he could use a neighbor we have despised.

Maybe he could even use our parents we Scarcely discuss with.

Maybe he could use an old friend we Scarcely talk with..

Or even the bank at this particular time.

Do you know we can be directed to take a particular HERB or pill for an illness?!

1 Timothy 5:23 (KJV) Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.

We can be directed to even see a health practitioner on our health issues. He or she may just give us the guidance that we need.

All I want you to understand today is God’s Goodness is ever constant, DYNAMIC IN HIS WORKINGS.

Don’t often BOX GOD BY YOUR EARTHLY WISDOM.

I have heard cases where a fellow was directed supernaturally to meet another man of God for healing and this man of God wasn’t even his pastor, yet God used that vessel to heal the fellow.

No one would have though Jesus would multiply bread and fishes In that desert. The disciples had suggested other ways.

Luke 9:12-13 (KJV) And when the day began to wear away, then came the twelve, and said unto him, Send the multitude away, that they may go into the towns and country round about, and lodge, and get victuals: for we are here in a desert place.
But he said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they said, We have no more but five loaves and two fishes; except we should go and buy meat for all this people.

They suggested the people be sent away and they will lodge in nearby villages and get food etc.

Or they get a large sum of money and buy food for all this people.

Those were their alternatives, their options.

But JESUS WOULD NEVER RUN OUT OF WAYS TO BLESS US.

JESUS WOULD NEVER RUN OUT OF WAYS TO BLESS US.

JESUS WOULD NEVER RUN OUT OF WAYS TO BLESS US.

JESUS WOULD NEVER RUN OUT OF WAYS TO BLESS US!!

Focus on the one who Blesses and don’t make a channel of blessing an Idol.

WILL YOU BE MADE WHOLE?!
