S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”
This brief story centers on a military leader who was concerned for one of his employees. He told Jesus that his associate was paralyzed and suffering terribly back at home. Jesus immediately asked, “Do want me to go and heal him?”
Oftentimes, we make our requests to Jesus a much bigger deal than is necessary. Make no mistake, Jesus is ready to hear and answer every need we have. However, if we’re not careful there are times we just don’t want to trouble Jesus. So we fail to ask. Thoughts such as, “He’s too busy,” or “My problem is too insignificant,” or “I’ve already reached my ‘ASK’ quotient this week” can derail our miracle from happening. This man, who had never met Jesus before and was not a JEW, made a statement … and immediately Jesus offered His services. Now imagine what Jesus will do for one of His very own “Followers.” Scripture says, “He will do exceedingly and abundantly MORE than we can ask or think!!!” (Eph. 3:20, paraphrase). “Jesus Is Ready, Are YOU?”
You are my Lord and Savior and You are unlimited. Because of that, I know I can’t wear You out with my ASKING. So again today, I am ready for You to heal, provide, protect, and empower me. Yes, I want it all because You want to do it all. Amen
