Good morning people who take the posture of blind Bartimaeus in order to see
I have spoken much recently about SEEING what God has said, as He wants us to SEE it. The focus has been on SEEING, and not just on hearing.
The following scripture shows an incredible focus and flow. Blind Bartimaeus knew his present reality, but he pressed into connecting with Jesus. Others told him to hush because he was being to loud, but Bartimaeus called out all the more because he knew he needed a touch from God.
Now let’s read it and please allow Father to bring revelation, especially to the last part:
Mark 10:46-52 NIV Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and His disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus. “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
Jesus still responds to those who want to SEE, and I believe Father wants to touch our spiritual sight in these days.
I love the result: He received his sight and followed Jesus!
May it be true of our lives too!
