Do we really believe that God is in control of our lives now and can supernaturally intervene now. What would this look like? Let us consider it.

Biblical Musings 16
Ruins of the Pool of Bethesda, Jerusalem
When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew that he had already been a long time in that condition, He said to him, "Do you wish to get well?" 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." Jesus said to him, "Arise, take up your pallet, and walk." And immediately the man became well, and took up his pallet and began to walk. John 5:6-9 (NASV)
Why did Jesus heal only one man out of the large number of sick who were there? What does this say about God's healing people today?
