Acts 9:33-34. He found there a man named Aeneas who had been confined to a mattress for eight years because he was paralyzed. Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus the Christ heals you. Get up and make your own bed!” And immediately he got up.

There are many ways to be paralyzed. So many of us are spiritually paralyzed. To respond to God’s power takes action on our part. Aeneas got up. He could have laid in his bed and say he can’t, but he responded and got up. Our question is what has God been wanting to do in or through us? It could be inviting a friend or neighbor to go to church with us. It could be making a phone call. It could be getting into the Bible more and praying more. We tend to get in habits that create ruts. Ruts are paralyzing. Let us ask God where we are paralyzed a d allow His Holy Spirit to move within us. Then let us get up and carry out God’s will.
