Today’s message comes from Day 228 in my book, Seek Him, Volume 2: Going Beyond Your Spiritual Comfort Zone. The theme is “Without Hesitation.”
There he found a man named Aeneas, who was paralyzed and had been bedridden for eight years. Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you. Get up and make your bed,” and immediately he got up.
Acts 9:33-34 HCSB
With the same conviction that Peter commanded Aeneas to get up, without doubt, or hesitation, Aeneas stood up. Aeneas believed without question. He believed in God’s healing and in God’s servants’ ability to heal through His power. He believed in the name of Jesus (Yeshua). He could have said, “Man, are you crazy? I’m paralyzed, and I’ve been stuck in this bed for eight long miserable years; there’s no way that I can get up and make my bed; how could I possibly be healed just because you say I am?” But Aeneas didn’t say a word. He didn’t sit there pondering what Peter said for several hours or even several minutes. Nope, he immediately got up. How awesome would life be to have that level of belief? Think about it.
Father, heal me of all inflictions, fears, doubts, and pain. I believe that there are no limits to You and Your healing power. I believe that You sent Your son to give us hope, to show us the way to You, and to show us how to live our lives and love others as You intend. You sent Jesus to show us who and what we are, and just as we are in You, You are in us. Your power and Light live within us. Father, I want to respond like Aeneas without hesitation. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
And with that family, I pray that you are blessed, that you see and embrace your blessings, and that you are a blessing to others. Check out Day 228 in my book to complete the Speak Your Truth section that follows the prayer. And you can go deeper by completing the corresponding activity in the companion workbook, Seek Him Workbook 2. If you haven’t purchased either book, you can find them, and the other books that make up my Seek Him series, online and through many local retailers. I hope that they bless and enrich you!
