Now Is Your Time

Now Is Your Time

There was a pool called Bethesda where a multitude waited for the stirring of the water, the word says, “For an angel went down at a certain time into the pool and stirred up the water; then whoever stepped in first, after the stirring of the water, was made well.” (John 5:4) NKJV

It was there that Jesus came across a man who had been suffering with his infirmity for 38 years. Jesus asked him, “Do you want to get well?” The man replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” Jesus says to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” (John 5:6-8 NIV)

There is so much revelation in this, but allow me to share this one with you. God has stirred the hearts of many. Some felt the stirring, heard God’s call and with great courage boldly stepped into God’s will for their lives. Then there are some of us who felt the stirring, know they’ve been called but like the infirmed man had a mountain of excuses stopping them from moving forward. If you look at the scripture Jesus did not coddle or comfort this man He commanded him to get up and move forward.

God has called some of you to ministry, He’s given you a vision, some have simply been nudged to spend more time in His word, and while it’s clear what God wants to do in your life, you’ve placed obstacles in your path before you’ve even started. God is saying to you get up, take up His vision, take up the call and walk! Walk toward your destiny, step into His will, God is not going to ask you to do anything He hasn’t already equipped you to do.

Move forward knowing that, “He who has begun a good work in you will complete it.” (Philippians 1:6) Now… is… your… time!

  1. How is it that whenever I’m in need, I pop on your blog and, more times than not, the scripture and message of your most current post is the one I need at that time?! It’s uncanny…or divine.

    In any event, things have been a little daunting and I’ve been praying about them and reading this post is like being told “to get up, get on, and get over it!” If you want something, go for it. Thank you.

    1. Glory to God, that is exactly how God works. Jewel know that God loves you with an everlasting love and He cares about everything that matters to you, nothing is too small or too big for God to care about, so if you have a need trust that He will always provide you with the answers and the direction you need to live the great life that He Died for you to have. I love you sis, may God continue to pour out His love, peace and blessings upon you and yours.
