After This…

23rd September 2020

Scripture Reading: John 5: 1-11

Focus

“After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.” (John 5: 1)

Our Focal Scripture begins interestingly with two words: “After this”. The last thing that happened in the preceding chapter was the miraculous healing of the son of a certain noble man. That noble man besought Jesus on account of his son who was at the point of death; Jesus intervened, and the boy came back to life. After this miracle, Jesus went on to heal the man at the pool of Bethesda. The miracles didn’t stop with the noble man.

Friend, you may have witnessed the miracle of others, you may have seen God intervene in the lives of others, you may have seen God rescue others from challenges, you may have seen God turn the tables in favour of someone around you, you may have seen God perform a mighty miracle in favour of someone you know, you may have seen the wonders of God in others, and God says, after theirs, yours is coming.

Others may have been remembered by God, and God says, your own divine remembrance is coming. Others may have had doors supernaturally opened to them, and God says, your own is coming. Others may have enjoyed miraculous healings and liberation from powers of darkness, and God says, your own is coming. Others may have received their own miracles, and God says, yours is coming.

Jesus was not going to heal the son of the noble man and leave out the man at the pool of Bethesda. He had them all in His plan; but whereas one was going to get his healing earlier, the other was not going to miss out. There may be people who appear to have been scheduled to receive their miracles ahead of you, but the fact that they will be remembered before you does not exclude you from having your own portion from God.

Stop envying those that God has visited and ask God to visit you as He visited those before you. If God be for you, after the miracles of others that you have seen, your eyes shall see your own miracle.

Declaration

As others receive their miracles, I will receive mine too, in Jesus’ name!
