“In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind,halt withered, waiting for the moving of the water.” (John 5 vs 3). That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional Today.
At the Pool of Bethesda, there was a multitude of people who were blind, lame, impotent, paralyzed and had all manner of ailments. The healing reputation of the Pool drew men from all over Israel. While the people who came to the Pool for healing increased, the Pool offered healing to one person per season.
The needs around the Pool far out-numbered the Supply of Healing from the Pool. The needs around the Pool out-numbered the Provisions of the Pool.
Notice that when Jesus healed the invalid man, He extricated him from the system of acute lack. Jesus took the man away from the place where his needs outnumbered the provisions. Jesus brought the man to the place where his need for healing was sufficiently met by the provision of healing. The man was no longer plagued by the need for healing that could not be provided. Jesus brought the man to the place of abundant provision!
In Life, our needs often out-number our provision. We are often stuck in situations where our demands exceed our supplies. The need for employment often exceeds the available chances for employment. Our numerous needs often compete for our lean resources.
Friend, Today, God’s word to you is ABUNDANT PROVISION! God is lifting you from the place of Lack to the place of Abundance. God is taking you out of the scarcity that rules your life. God is terminating the cycle in your life where your needs out-number your provision.
Jesus brought healing to the man at the Pool by making a provision for him. God’s provision will suffice in your life when the provisions of men fail.
Pray with me, “Lord,my provisions will out-number my needs”.
Have a Splendid Thursday!
