Creating Captivating Clarity

Devotional

Immerse yourself


It's Day 10 of our plan, and there's still a miracle God wants to perform in our lives and in our thinking. We've turned towards God, our minds have been opened, our hearts have been softened and we're hearing from God. We've established that we won't be satisfied with getting to, without going into. Even with all of this satisfying revelation, still, there's more here for you.


The clarity that God wants you to experience requires an immersive experience. When you are immersed in clarity, you will see the miracles of God in your life. 


John 5:1-15 shares the story of the man at the pool of Bethesda. It was at this pool that the water would be stirred and anyone lying near the pool could get into the water and be healed. 


It's so interesting that the disabled man laid near the pool for 38 years and never got into the water to be healed. His reasoning is found in verse 7:


"Sir," the man replied, "I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me."


We all know that it didn't take 38 years to ask someone for help or to simply figure out a way to get into the water. Based on what we’ve established through this manifestHER Daily plan, we know that the root level beliefs translated through His mindset and perspective were keeping him from his healing. Getting into the water required faith, it required a belief in worthiness, and it required a commitment to move.


As you walk out this Clarity journey, pray that the following be strengthened in you:


Your faith: Pray that your faith remains strong despite not always being able to physically see how things will work out and that your spiritual clarity, as you look clearly to God, will sustain you.


Your belief in your own worthiness: Pray that you aren't distracted by others' blessings and that you increase in knowledge, understanding how God designed you to be blessed.


Your courage to move: Pray that when it's time to make a move, you have the courage to move and the strength to proceed with an awareness of your safety and security in Christ.


Most end their focus on this pool of Bethesda story after the man was healed by Jesus, but I want to go deeper into what happened after the lame man was healed. Verse 13 says that the man had no idea who Jesus was even though Jesus had just healed him. I wonder if he had followed the original instructions – to get into the water - how things may have been different for him. Because he lacked faith, belief, and courage, His body was healed, but he still missed the blessing of enlightenment to who Jesus was.


If you want your complete healing – healing of your mind, your thoughts, and your perspective, you've got to follow the original instructions and immerse yourself in God with faith, belief in your own worthiness, and courage. There, you will discover your miracle!
