Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrew 11:1

Sometimes we feel weary. We question what will happen next. We wonder how God will guide us on a path of purpose in our lives. We have difficulty opening our eyes in truth and need to be reminded to remain faithful. 

Jesus met a man on His way toward Jerusalem. Bartimaeus sat on the side of the road calling for the Savior. He was blind and couldn’t see. But his voice was powerful! In the midst of the noisy crowd, he didn’t allow “be quiet” to silence him. He yelled for mercy and grace. 

Jesus revealed the love of His faithfulness and performed a miracle. Bartimaeus received his sight. He was able to see! He was healed because he BELIEVED. In grateful offerings of praise, he chose to follow Jesus. And those who witnessed the miracle, praised our mighty God! 

God uses circumstances in our lives to demonstrate the power of His will. When we’re blinded by the lack of faith, He opens our eyes to TRUST. He navigates us through good and bad and helps us remember who leads us through the difficult days of doubt.

When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who longs to strengthen our hearts. We mustn’t listen to those who try to silence our HOPE. God will help us remain faithful. He will ready us to move along. And even when we cannot clearly see, He will lead us to a place of calm. In the certainty of His presence, we will begin to understand WHY we must ALWAYS put our FAITH in Him and BELIEVE.

Dear God, Thank you for Jesus. We recognize the power of Your will, as we consider the miracles He performed. We will learn to TRUST as You demonstrate the love of Your faithfulness. And we will be reminded who is handling EVERY single thing. Help us remain faithful, so we will put our HOPE in YOU and never doubt Your ability to know what is best for our lives. Amen
