GOD PAUSE: This morning I read the story of a man who had a physical disability for 38 years --- and he was miraculously healed by Jesus. He told Jesus that the reason he wasn't healed till then was because he needed someone to help him get to the pool of water when the angel stirred it. My friend you and I live in a world where people need the Lord. And they need a helping hand to connect them to God's healing touch. And you are that hand. Jesus said that he watched his Father at work and then joined him in that work. Lord, as we go out today, we go out in your power and ability. May our eyes be open to be your helping hand. May miracles be the norm. Amen.
