Jesus Christ was saying, “If I see my Father working, I will jump in and work. If I see my Father ministering to someone, then I will minister to him”. “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work” (John 5:17). This should be the attitude: ” I CANNOT DO ANYTHING IN THE MINISTRY THAT IS MY OWN IDEA.” I can only do what I see my Father do. Jesus was teaching that He restricted his ministration to what He could see the Father doing. Unlike some of us, who want to pray for everyone and heal everyone, Jesus restricted himself to doing only what His Father did. Jesus knew that He could fulfil the purposes of God better by restricting His activities to what the Father did.
Jesus did not feel embarrassed that He would be allowed to heal only one person. Jesus was not embarrassed by the fact that people would think, “There were not many miracles today.” Jesus did not care about whether people thought He was powerful or not. If God wanted one miracle, He would do no more than one. “Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise” (John 5:19,20). When God loves you, He will show you whom He is calling and whom He is sending. When God loves you, He will show you whom He is healing and whom He is touching.
“For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel” (John 5:20). I have learnt one thing. You cannot do anything that God is not doing. If He is not making your church grow you cannot make it grow yourself. If He is not healing you, you cannot be healed. If He is not delivering you, you cannot be delivered. I have learnt and found out that somehow, God doesn’t seem to just do everything for everybody. The point I am making is that God is always doing something in particular. We must see what He is doing. We must flow with what He is doing. We must move away from what He is not doing!
