Do YOU want to be healed?

Jesus asked the invalid of 38 years, if he wanted to be healed in John 5.  All this man knew was disability.  Would you have to think about it?
I take this question personally and answer a hundred times YES!  Even though sometimes it's a slow yes.  But I also wonder how so many of those who claim Christianity and desire to do things God's way would answer, when they realize they haven't really been seeking GOD's way.

See, I believe many American Evangelical Christians (including me sometimes) try to fit God's plans into their own plans/schedule.  Then we get frustrated when things don't work out or we're stretched and stressed beyond our capabilities to cope.  Then I think of the questions Jesus asked..."Do you want to be healed?"

As we truly seek to surrender everything to Jesus, He will be faithful!  It won't make life easy; in fact, it will probably be one of the hardest things we'll ever do, but it'll be worth it!

I pray that the people of our nation will ask themselves this question..."Do you want to be healed?"  And then seek Your ways, O God.
