John 5:7 (NIV)
7 “Sir,” the invalid 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.”
For most people, the biggest challenge they face when it comes to receiving something from the Lord is what they feel is a lack of worthiness or qualification. They feel as though they lack the validity they need to be a recipient of the blessings and promises of God. Take another look a today’s text, it describes the man as an ‘invalid’. The very word the Bible uses is ‘in-valid’. While this man was a physical invalid, many people have already qualified themselves as a spiritual or emotional invalid. What about you? What are you allowing to speak louder than the promise that He’s given you? What have you decided ‘invalidates’ you from being worthy of the calling that He has placed upon your life? If all you’re seeing is what eliminates you, then you’ll miss the power the power that’s waiting on you. When Jesus took your place and your punishment, He left you His worthiness. No one is validated by their own merit or achievement. His validity has been imparted to you. So stop disqualifying what He has qualified. Everything you need to to step into the calling He has on your life is already in place. It’s time to get past the past, represent Him in the present, and move forward into the glorious future He has in store for you. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
