“There is none to help!” This is the statement that comes out of many when they are asked about their progress in life. I agree with you that God would send His help through men, but the question still remains that, “Have you done all that you need to do concerning your life?”
“A rolling stone gathers no moss,” If you have given it all it takes to be successful in life, it will be obvious in your life; and this will attract successful people in giving you all necessary pushes. Success is all about making progress in all our endeavors bit by bit. That is why you can never hear people say, “I have succeeded.” Success has no ending! You can only be successful because there is a need for progress wherever the stage you have reached in life, you still need to move forward.
It is when you try to toddle you will be supported. If you are seated helplessly, to see those who would draw you up would be a difficult task. That is the situation of a man at a particular Pool in a place called Bethesda; he had been paralyzed for 38 years, and had been by the Pool for many years, he that wanted to help him asked him, “do you want to be healed?” His response was, “there is none to help.” Who asked him stories? Do you want to make progress, yes or no? No third option! he should have been a friend of the lame man at the gate called Beautiful.
The angel of God would come to stir the Pool in a particular season, and the first invalid folk that got there would get his healing. This particular man was too complacent. Unlike him, Mephibosheth who was a lame wanted to succeed by all means, and he was doing all things possible to make sure he was successful (prayer, hard work, and correct mentality) and at the end, he was restored in his kingship position.
