1 After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
2 Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches.
3 In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water.
4 For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
5 And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years.
6 When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?
7 The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.
8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

One important thing about God that we must quickly learn as His children is the great power, authority and significance attached to His word. Psalm 138:2 tells us that God even magnifies His word above His Name. The enormity of this statement is amplified when you realize that His Name is above all other names in heaven and on earth, and that at the mention of His Name every knee must bow (Philippians 2:9-11). It is therefore not surprising that God only speaks whenever it is absolutely necessary, and His words are usually few and straight to the point. When God speaks to you, it is better you pay close attention to every minute detail of His words.
As partakers of His divine nature, God expects us to be like
Him by going straight to the point whenever we have the opportunity of
communicating with Him. Jesus manifested this desire in His interaction with
people when He was with us here on earth. In today’s Bible reading, when Jesus
asked the paralyzed man, who had been suffering for thirty-eight years, if he
wanted to be healed, He expected an answer that was straight to the point, but
what He got was a rambling speech. However, Jesus mercifully healed him.

Our Lord Jesus Christ teaches us in Matthew 6:7 that prayers are not necessarily answered because of the multitude of words. God answers prayers based on His love for His children. Because of His grace, He gives us things we do not deserve, and He shields us from harmful desires through His mercy. When David was confronted with one of the most distressful situations of his life at Ziklag, he went straight to the point in his prayer to God in 1st Samuel 30:8, which says:
“And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? Shall I overtake them? And he answered him, pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.”
After his conversation with God, David and his men went
ahead to recover all that the enemy had carried away from them. There was not a
single thing that was lost. I prophesy into your life that before the end of
this year, there shall be a recovery of everything you have lost in Jesus’
Is your health being invaded by sickness? Are you troubled
on every side? Is your source of income under such terrible attacks that it has
become difficult to make ends meet? Is the ocean of life threatening the
survival of your marriage? Are you struggling to maintain your relationship
with God because of sinful demands at your place of work? Are you agitated
because of the fear of the future? I decree the immediate release of the power
of God to deal with all your problems and to give you all-round peace in Jesus’
