Your Faith Will Make You Whole!

Read this following passage about a blind beggar who had a run in with the Master!

As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening. They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.”

He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”.

“Lord, I want to see,” he replied.

Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

Luke 18:35-43

The issue that this man had was that he was blind and couldn’t see… and the solution was Jesus, the Word of God… who came stepping into this beggar’s neighborhood.

The Bible tells us that he CRIED out to Jesus, probably in despair… and all those good folks around him basically told him to, “Shut up!”.

…but this man wasn’t about to let a few haters rob him of his chance to get to the Word and receive his healing. The man cried out EVEN louder… even at the risk of being embarrassed around his associates, neighbors, and friends… and kept on crying out until Jesus stopped & answered him.

It was obvious what this man needed healing for… everyone could see he was BLIND! But yet Jesus still asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”….

When we are dealing with issues in our lives, that we come to Jesus needing healing for… be it healing in our physical bodies… or healing in our minds from depression or mental conditions… or if its healing in our marriages & relationships… we MUST be specific about what we WANT in our prayer!

Don’t think that you’re asking too much in prayer… or that you’re being too “greedy” in prayer. Your Heavenly Father owns ALL the silver and gold in this world… and there is NOTHING that is too large for Him to accomplish!

…and at the end of the day, the blind beggar got the sight and the miracle that he desired. Jesus’ final response to this man was, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.”

The man believed that he could receive his sight by 100% faith… and received it! You have probably heard it millions of times before… but ANYTHING is possible to you, if you can believe it… and have the faith to see it!

When you are in prayer and praying for something… act, believe, and confess like you’ve ALREADY got it. Begin to thank God for your healing in your body (even though you still may be feeling pain).

Begin to thank God for renewing the relationship bond between you and a sibling that you had in the past, but was damaged years ago because of an event far in the past (even though you haven’t talked to them for years).

Begin to act like that thing you so desire, is already here… and you will by all means receive it!

Until next time, be blessed… and walk in God’s abundance for your life today.

Without Vision, You are Blind.

Helen Keller was once asked, “What is worse than being blind?”. Her response: “Being able to see… but having NO vision.”

Let the vision for your life, family, future, education, health, and ministry be clear to you. The vision that you establish for yourself, helps to guide you THAT place in life that you want to get to… but is just out of your reach.

Your vision for your life, is a roadmap… that will help you find the way to your destination in life, whenever you get lost.

Your vision for your life will help pull you to the top… when haters, naysayers, and hypocrites try to drag you with them to the bottom.

Your vision for your life helps to illuminate your surroundings… when you feel like everything is dark around you.

Basically, without a vision for your life… you’re JUST like a blind person. Only, you just run into more walls than they do!
