The Great Physician

If you are a discouraged and defeated Christian believer, you may have accepted the rationalization that your condition is “normal for all Christians.” You may now be content with the position that the progressive, victorious Christian life may be suitable for a few Christian but not for you! You have been to Bible conferences; you have been to the altar, but the blessings are for someone else. That attitude on the part of Christian believers is neither modesty nor meekness; it is a chronic discouragement, resulting from unbelief. It is rather like those who have been sick for so long that they no longer believe they can get well. Jesus is still saying, as He said to the man lying by the gate at the Jerusalem pool, “Do you want to be made whole?” Jesus made him whole because of his desire! His need was great, but he had never lapsed into that state of chronic discouragement.

Verse

When Jesus saw . . . he saith unto him, “Wilt thou be made whole?” John 5:6

Thought

Jesus is still saying, as He said to the man lying by the gate at the Jerusalem pool, “Do you want to be made whole?”

Prayer

Lord, My desire is to be whole. I pray that I may never be satisfied with any other condition. I am Your child. I will act like it.

“What I believe about God is the most important thing about me.”
