T“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” (Heb. 4:16)

In John 5:5 the man at the pool of Bethesda had an infirmity for thirty-eight years. But Ps. 34:19 said the LORD delivers the righteous from all infirmities.

Many people could have done many things to succeed, but the thing is that when grace is not available, one acts senselessly.

Grace came in John 5:6. Jesus went straight to the man with infirmity. “Will you be made whole?” He asked the man.

The man said in John 5:7, “Sir, I have no man.” When grace is not available, you begin to look for man. The thing about man is that man does not respond to man, unless he is prompted by grace.

Jesus said to the man in John 5:8, “Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.” In verse 9, the man got up. But in verse 10, the Jews said to the man, “It is the Sabbath day: it is not lawful for thee to carry thy bed.”

 Can you believe it? I expected them to rejoice with the man in thanksgiving, but no, they were angry.

Those who thought you would sit by the pool with nobody to help you for the rest of your life are in for a surprise.

Grace has come to release you from wherever they locked you.

Words of Wisdom: No one can stop grace.  When grace is at work, even inanimate objects work for you.

Prayers/Confession: Father, for the remaining part of this year, send grace in the form of human beings to take me to my destined place, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
