As I thought about this word Wholeness, which means to have the full quantity and amount of something and it is the totality of something that is complete in and of itself by which it has or contains all of its proper elements and belongings. It is something that is undivided, and in one piece, something not broken, damaged, or impaired, but completely intact.

 

Though it may seem you will never be whole again, your sickness, disease, illness, wounds, pains, depression, heartbreak, and brokenness are on their way to becoming something of the past.

Your Wholeness is in Your Worship

 

I decree today that you will be Whole: You will be full and complete; you will have all of your proper elements and belongings. You will no longer be divided or double minded. You will no longer live a life of broken pieces, but you will have total peace. You will no longer be damaged, or impaired, but completely intact. You Are Whole!

 

I was led to John 5, the story of the man at the Pool of Bethesda. A man who also dealt with needing to be Made Whole. Not just receiving wholeness, but MADE whole… this can only come by life sometimes knocking you down, sometimes going through hardships, difficulties, a sickness, relationships falling apart, loss of a job, a marriage, or a loved one… Something is only MADE when it has gone through the Worst and it was still able to Survive! Somebody shout, I MADE IT! I have gone through the Worst, yet I Still Survived!

 

Do you want to be Made Well & Whole? I know it sounds like a crazy question to ask someone, do they want to be made whole or well. But Jesus himself in John 5 poses this vey question to the man at the Pool of Bethesda.

 

5 Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?”7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”

I want you to know that God’s sees you lying there in your condition or issue today. He knows it has been a long time that you have had to deal with the situation, but he has come to see about your need. Before there can be deliverance there has to be a determination on your part that you want to be made well/whole. Because there are sometimes and some things in life that we can deal with for so long that we think that this is the way it will always be.

We have been Conditioned by the Condition!

We have allowed the condition to be our way of life! The Bible then says that the “Sick/Infirmed” man… this is the label that has been placed on you from being in your condition so long that this is how you view yourself and how others view you as well. Now the man answered Jesus with an EXCUSE! He never said Yes I want to be made whole, or I want to be made well, rather he said I have No Man to put me where I need to be in the pool at the right time. Many of us have been in the Condition so long because we have been waiting on someone else to do only what God can do. We are always looking to someone else other than God to be the Answer to all our problems, thereby putting unrealistic expectations on others to do what only is designed and purposed for the Father to do in our lives.

Many of you have not been made well/whole because your Excuse is how everyone else keeps getting ahead or in front of you or how someone has not put you or placed you where you ought to be. It is time for you to rise up and by faith and by works (actions) go forth in the things of God!

God has this to say about your issue, your condition, and about you being made well/whole:

8Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” 9And immediately the man was made well/whole, took up his bed, and walked.

When  you let go of your excuses, believe,  and completely rely on God (and no one else) the Order of your Condition will be Reversed… the Bible says, Rise, Take up your bed and walk… when he received what Jesus said about him, the turnaround was this: immediately the man was made well/whole, took up his bed, and walked. What has taken a long time for you will now happen immediately because you are relying and trusting God.

Position (Current) vs. Predestination (Future)

The Position that you are in right now is your temporary condition. It is just an identifying marker of where you are, not who you are…Where you are does not supersede Who you are, and who you are to become… Your position right now is just a GPS location, not your Predestined/Predetermined Destination! You are standing in a temporary condition/issue, don’t get uncertain about who you are in uncertain times. First & not last, Above & not beneath, the Head & not the tail!

Romans 8:30
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

In this text, we find a man that had been at the place of his blessing for thirty-eight long years.  He had not moved once in those thirty-eight years to possess what God had for him. “How long have you been at your pool of Bethesda (House of Mercy) and not moved?”  I will give you the answer- Too Long!

 

Just like in verse 6, when Jesus asked the man, “Do you want to be made well?” I present that question to you today.  I know some of you might say it is stupid to ask someone if they want to be made whole or well if they have been in the same condition for thirty-eight years.  In actuality, the question is relevant because if he wanted to be well, he would have moved thirty-eight years ago.  He would not be lying in the same place of complacency and waiting on someone else to do what only God can do. Why are you still just lying there, Man (Woman) of Destiny?

 

Then Jesus asked him, “Are you earnest about getting well?”  Jesus was simply asking him, “Do you mean it for real this time?” My brother (sister), you said in 1997 that you were ready to live and do right, again in 1998, again in 2005, and now it is 2013 and you are still just lying by the pool of your healing, blessing, anointing, joy, understanding, and breakthrough!  You are still just sitting there watching everyone else live out his or her life and blessings.  When are you going to move into the place of possession and position?  We have become complacent, content, and happy in a place that was supposed to be only temporary!

 

God might have told you to sit at the pool and learn for 38 days, 38 months, but not 38 years.  You have turned a temporary stopping point in your life into your future.  Just like the man in the text, we need to stop waiting on someone else to put us in the pool.  While you are waiting on “Joe Somebody,” God is waiting on you.

 

Finally, in verses 8-9, Jesus gave the man instructions about how to be made whole.  First, you have to Get Up!  You have to make a conscious decision within yourself that you are tired of where you are in life and that God has more in store for you.  First, getting up happens in your mindset, then it grows in your heart. 

Next, Jesus told him to Pick Up.  You have to pick up from where you are now and get yourself into motion.  When you pick up, it is in the areas of your life that you know you need a touch from Jesus.  I do not care where you are right now in your life, career, age, walk with God, or any other situation. My brother (sister), it is time to get up in your mind, will, and spirit.  Then it is time for you to pick up the broken and messed up pieces in your life and Walk.  This means Move.  Take those things that are broken to Jesus and He will fix them.

 

I find it interesting that Jesus did not say, Get up, Leave your mat here, and then Walk.  Understand it is not what is in your life that cripples you, but rather what has not been in contact with Jesus.  Only when that situation in your life gets into a new place with the Lord will it be healed.  When Jesus told the man to move and walk, He wanted him to get to the place He had prepared for him.

 

Ask the Lord today, “What and where is the place that you have prepared for me?” After God gives you the answer, then it is time to GET UP, PICK UP, and WALK!  One last thing, in verse nine, we notice that Jesus did not tell him to get into the pool.  Understand, sometimes God will not perform your blessing the same way as everybody else’s.  He is doing a New Thing!

 

You are an extraordinary and peculiar treasure in the sight of God.  You are going to a place greater than the pool you have laid beside so long.  You might be the chosen one that will walk out a miracle of God before many.  The man’s turn was in a pool with many other people, but his time was to walk and go to a new place, where it was just him and Jesus.  FOCUS ON YOUR TIME, NOT YOUR TURN!

 

 

GET UP, PICK UP, & WALK!
