Miracles Can Happen When You Least Expect Them
God does miracles His way, and it’s often when people don’t expect them. You might be sitting on your by the edge of a pool looking for assistance, for healing, from an escape from your circumstances. In that moment, Jesus may do something you never thought or imagined He’d do. This was the case with the paralytic. Jesus asked the man, “Would you like to get well?” and the paralytic man said to Jesus, “I can’t, sir, for I have no one to put me into the pool when the water bubbles up. Someone else always gets there ahead of me.” As he begins to talk to Jesus, he starts to experience some hope. He sees his deliverance in the Bethesda pool, but instead, Jesus tells him, “Stand up, pick up your mat and walk.” Jesus didn’t need a healing pool, or magic or troubled waters. In that moment, he was telling the paralytic that He was the miracle. The same goes for us. We don’t need to look towards people or things as the solution that will change our life. Jesus is the miracle and has the power to transform us.
