38 Years

Finally I have seen the Pool of Bethesda with my own eyes - the site of the healing of the paralysed man by Jesus as told by St John (chapter 6?). Everytime I think about that incident - the man had been afflicted for 38 years I think of Suheila, a Palestinian woman in my church who came for healing years ago with a problem. When I asked her how long she had been suffering with it, she told me "38 years". I knew then that the Lord would heal her. Right there a fellow minister had a word of knowledge about her problem, came over and prayed - and Jesus took her pain away from that moment for the rest of her life.

I love it when the Lord Jesus reminds me that he is our contemporary.
