Mark 10:46-52-Then they came to Jericho. And as He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat along the way begging.
47-When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
48 Many ordered him to keep silent. But he cried out even more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
49 Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. So they called the blind man, saying, “Be of good comfort. Rise, He is calling you.”
50-Throwing aside his garment, he rose and came to Jesus.
51 Jesus answered him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabbi, that I might receive my sight.”
52 Jesus said to him, “Go your way. Your faith has made you well.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus on the way.
Desperate and in need of a miracle that only God can perform? Have you found yourself suffering in a situation that has only gotten worse instead of better?
How are you handling it? Are you still trying to fix it yourself or have you made up in your mind that if God does not do it for you, it will not happen?
Have you made up your mind that you too are willing to cry out “Lord, do it for me right now?” Have you gotten there yet?
Blind Bartimaeus was in a desperate situation. He was blind and wanted to see. He purposed in his heart and mind that as Jesus was passing by, he would received what he was in desperate need of that day.
Bartimaeus stood on the side of the road waiting for Jesus to pass by and when He did, he acknowledge Jesus’s authority in calling Him the "Son of David" and then cried out in a beg for mercy. Oh, what a great picture of humility!
Bartimaeus received the healing he needed from Jesus that day. He was willing to ignore the opinions of the crowd and the rejection of the disciples for He knew that what he needed only Jesus could provide and he was willing to “CRY OUT” with a loud voice even the more.
Why not let Bartimaeus cry to Jesus be your cry today in your situation. Say what He said to Jesus “Lord, do it for me right now”!
Bartimaeus heard, he believed, he cried out in a loud voice and he received the healing he was in desperate need of that day.
Having seen such great faith in this man of desperation, Jesus replied to him with these profound words “what do you want me to do for you”? Bartimaeus told Jesus “he wanted to see.”
The response that day to an impossible situation from Jesus to Bartimaeus was “go thy way for thy faith hath made thee whole.” IMMEDIATELY, Bartimaeus sight was restored.
What miracle are you in desperate need of is being held up because of unbelief on your part?
My hope for you on today is that you too would cry out like blind Bartimaeus “Lord, do it for me right now”!
Grace and Mercy is available to you right now. Call on the Lord for He promise to hear and answer your prayer.
LORD, DO IT FOR ME RIGHT NOW!!!!!
