10 May Stand Up and Walk
Believe in the Jesus who believes in you. He believes that you can rise up, take up, and move on. You are stronger than you think. “‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV).
He certainly gave a bright future to the Bethesda beggar. “And immediately the man was made well” (John 5:9). Jesus did nothing but speak, and the miracle was accomplished. What will God do for you? I cannot say. God’s help, while ever present, is ever specific. It is not ours to say what God will do. Our job is to believe he will do something. It simply falls to us to stand up, to take up, and walk. Remember, friends, you are never alone.
