Go to the pool…and wash…’ John 9:11 NKJV

Jesus told this blind man to go to the pool of Siloam and wash the dirt from his eyes. So here’s the question: What do you need to remove from your life today in order to see what God wants you to see and do what He wants you to do? Whether it’s a destructive habit, a toxic relationship or a bad attitude, you must get rid of it.

James writes: ‘Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded’ (James 4:7-8 NKJV). God will do His part, but you must do yours. God will extend grace to you, but you must act on it. It’s said that the water which flowed into the pool of Siloam came from under the temple and was used to wash the utensils which were part of worship and sacrifice. In other words, this water didn’t come from a man-made source, but from the presence of God. Don’t miss the point here! Jesus said, ‘Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you’ (John 15:3 KJV). Paul speaks of ‘…the washing of water by the Word’ (Ephesians 5:26 KJV). David writes, ‘How can a young man (or an older one) cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your Word’ (Psalm 119:9 NKJV).

The secret of victorious Christian living is bathing your mind each day in the Scriptures. Picture yourself taking a bath in God’s Word and the dirt and grime coming off you. That’s what meditating on the Scriptures does for you.
