…The invalid answered, “Sir, I have no one to put me in…
I remember while we were in school Annie Steve once saying, “the days of sitting at home, waiting for people to come to your father’s house saying; sir we saw a rose in your house that we are interested in, has passed, if you don’t go out, no one will see you. We all laughed it off then…
We are so quick to say the paralysed man in this story waited for 38years but another angle I saw while studying this was, he did not wait at home but at the pool where the miracle was happening. Do you think he would have met Jesus if he were at home? Or if he said, ” Abeg, I am tired! After all, I have been going there for the past 38years and still nothing! Just like Annie said, “the rose went out and it was seen and came back walking.”
But there is something else that happened, even though the man was where he will be seen, he almost missed it…
The question was, “would you like to get well?” He replied with the sob story of his life… How he doesn’t have long leg, it’s all about man no man, things are just hard everywhere, nothing is working…
I read the story of Kenny Blaq the now popular comedian shared by @iambankole recently…
“When Kenny was still trying to get a break in the industry, he attended a comedy event where some upcoming acts were billed to open the event. At the beginning of the event; there were few people there and the MC asked, ‘who was ready to perform?’, Guess who responded saying ‘I am ready?’ – @kennyblaqmcfr_
Let me help you understand, Kenny was just an attendee, he was not on the program. But sometimes you gotta create your own luck and seize your moment.
Kenny performed as though he was in front of a large audience. Little did he know the king of comedy @alibabagcfr was there and he gave him a slot at his January 1st event. This was the tipping point in his hustle and the rest is history…”
We spend time praying for different things and we forget to prepare for the answers.
Am I positioned for my miracle?
Am I prepared for the answer?
