Daniel Fast -day 5

After several days of fasting, you might be getting weak and tired, wanting food and constantly craving, I want to encourage you to persevere.  It’s time like these that spiritual breakthrough occurs.  The Lord will sustain you.  I am praying for you and so are many others.  The stories are coming in of how God is working and it is very encouraging to hear how God is moving in all of our lives and the first week is not even complete yet.  God is working, so be encouraged.

 

Day 5 –John chapter 5

 

Do You Want to Get Well?

 

“When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” John 5:6 (NIV)

 

How often we become consumed with the urgent. When things go suddenly wrong, they tend to draw us quickly to the place of prayer. For this man lying by the pool of Bethesda, his wasn’t a recent condition that plagued his life, but it was a condition he struggled with for a long time, 38 years long!

 

Jesus showed us that he is not limited to intervene in seemingly difficult situations that suddenly come our way, but his healing and compassion also extend to long time conditions. Even those we may have given up praying about, like maybe a friend or family member to be saved. Perhaps there are friends or family members in your life struggling with long-term issues, like illness, or disease.  Maybe there’s a problem that you have given up on, thinking you will never experience relief, like mistreatment from others, or an unloving spouse. Jesus’ act of compassion on this ‘single’ man, out of all those who were there waiting for the waters to stir, reminds us that God cares for us and for our issue and we can seek Him for an answer.

 

In this season of prayer and fasting, remember that nothing is beyond His reach, love, care, and His compassion.  So, Jesus asks you the same question.  Do you want to get well?
