Wade in the Water

23 10 2013



For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. Mark 4:5




Freedom and healing are in the water. I imagine that is what the witnesses who sat by the pool of Bethesda thought. Water was a path toward freedom for the Israelites who were leaving the bondage of Egypt behind. These biblical accounts create vivid images for anyone who suffers from illness or bondage that another state of healing and freedom are possible. Enslaved Africans were inspired to “Wade in the Water” as they used the rivers of the South to travel undetected to places of freedom. These longstanding stories are relevant today, as many continue to seek healing and freedom for their lives. Jesus gives the Living Water that can provide healing for our souls. He is the one that can provide deliverance for our hearts and minds. Wading is an act of faith to come closer to Him and to immerse ourselves in His goodness and His mercy. The healing that we are seeking can be found in Him. The deliverance we are looking for is available in him. Come closer, step in and be made whole.

Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to, you would ask me, and I would give you living water.” John 4:10
