21th day – After receiving the miracle, what type of care should we have?
“The Jews therefore said to him who was cured, “It is the Sabbath; it is not lawful for you to carry your bed.” He answered them, “He who made me well said to me, ‘Take up your bed and walk.’” Then they asked him, “Who is the Man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?” But the one who was healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, a multitude being in that place. Afterward Jesus found him in the temple, and said to him, “See, you have been made well. Sin no more, lest a worse thing come upon you.” The man departed and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had made him well. For this reason the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him, because He had done these things on the Sabbath.”(John 5:10-16)
The Religious people who were not concerned with healing, but only to have the people “in the palm of their hand” argued that, the man could not take up his bed and walk because it was Saturday and the law did not permit that. He had to stay lying there, accommodated; just hoping someone had compassion on him and used their faith on him!
When you are healed or a problem or situation you face is resolved, what type of care should you have?
Not to let yourself be contaminated with doubt because doubt neutralizes our faith!
And the sin of being accommodated makes the situation even worse…
Like a person who received a miracle many years ago and lives based on that, remembering Pastor “A” or “B that supposedly caused a revolution in their life.
That person is committing the same mistake that the man was at risk of committing, which is to depend on someone to make him use his faith.
You should rely solely on your faith, and when you become one with God, you will have the knowledge not tolerate being inside the Church, with information on a belief in the living God, and remain in a state of accommodation!
You must be vigilant, to notice in your own life when it comes to your faith!
Sometimes, when you pray, seek Him, or read the Bible you no longer do it with faith. So when do you use faith?
When you have conviction!
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hb.11: 1)
It is conviction! Where there is faith, there is an emotional balance that does not allow the person to be unstable, full of doubts. The person will no longer be in a state of accommodation.
When you are guided by your faith you will have conviction, security and direction.
We should have this care after receiving the miracles we achieve through our faith! Always analyzing ourselves because when we do, we invested in ourselves by making ourselves better. We are able to see if are accommodated or in faith.
Was it clear to you?
Do not just be aware and understand what we talk about, but take action and be attentive, daily, and not just in these 40 days.
Maybe you are noticing certain things that are bad for you. Things that you are attached to that disrupt and neutralize your faith, things that distract you like the Internet, television, friendships, or bad conversations. You must be aware of this so you can invest in your faith!
You say you want to be one with Him, but do your actions prove this? Will this only be limited to these 40 days or will it be for the rest of your life?
Be consistent! Remain till the end. He who endures till the end will reach the promises of God, describe in the Book of Revelation.
Be strong, and do not rely on religion, but only on your faith in God to become one with Him!
