John 5:8-9 (KJV)
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.
Jesus did not tell the man to sit up.
Jesus did not tell the man to stand up.
He told the man to “talk up your bed
and walk.” God has not delivered you
from you affliction, your addiction,
your flesh, your fear, or your enemies
for you to remain where you are. It’s
time to relocate. You are being loosed
from your emotional paralysis. You
are coming out of your circumstance
induced coma. Be on your way! It’s
time to move. This victory is not just
for you. There are those who need
to see (not just hear about) God’s
power made manifest. When you
move it strengthens others. When
you move you detach yourself from
what kept you bound. When you move
you put the devil on notice that God has
the final say and that you are
not without help, healing or hope!
