Take the Initiative

The paralysed man who got lowered through the roof

The man with the withered hand

Blind Bartameus

All 3 of these guys had one thing in common… They took the initiative.

Bartameus shouted to Jesus and when told to shut up, he shouted louder and louder….

Jesus said to the paralysed man, “take up your bed and walk”…. Jesus didn’t go over and lift him up, He just told him to get up. It was up to the paralysed man to stand up himself

Jesus said to the man with the withered hand, “stretch it out”….. it was up to this man to stretch out his hand…..

In all 3 cases each one of these men took the initiative, and when they did they were healed. God gives us life so we can overcome. If we take the initiative and do the overcoming, we will be inspired of God….So today in all you do, take the initiative…

Ephesians 5:14 “Arise from the dead”
