As Jesus approached Jericho a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging, and hearing a crowd going by, he inquired what was happening. They told him,“Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” He shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!” The people walking in front rebuked him, telling him to be silent, but he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me!” Then Jesus stopped and ordered that he be brought to him; and when he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please let me see.” Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.” He immediately received his sight and followed him, giving glory to God. When they saw this, all the people gave praise to God.
Has anyone ever told you to stop asking Jesus for your needs? Do people think you ask too often? Jesus is telling us that we need to ask for what we want, not to let the crowd sway you from asking. He calls to us. He asks what we want Him to do for us. And, He will always answer, sometimes we may not like the answer, but we must trust that He knows what is best for us. Ask and you shall receive.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for all the gifts, joys and healings you have given to me. I ask often Lord for my needs, thank you for not saying no. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
Those who are victorious I will feed from the tree of life.
