Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Hebrew 11:1
Jesus met a man who sat on the side of the road calling for Him. He was blind and couldn’t see. But his voice was powerful! In in the midst of the noisy crowd, he didn’t allow “be quiet” to silence him. He yelled for mercy and grace and faithfully believed Jesus was the Messiah.
Jesus revealed the love of His faithfulness and performed a miracle. Bartimaeus received his sight! He was healed because he BELIEVED. With grateful shouts of praise, he chose to follow Jesus. And those who witnessed the miracle, honored Him with grateful hearts.
God uses circumstances to demonstrate the power of His love. When we're blinded by lack of faith, He opens our eyes to TRUST. He moves us through struggles in our lives and navigates the bumps in the road. He gives us strength as we remain FAITHFUL and certain of what we cannot see.
When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who walks with us and stop letting fear rule our lives. Jesus will help us step closer to the Father and remind us who guides and provides. He will help us experience amazing things as we journey together and follow the footsteps of never-ending love.
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus. We’re humbled to consider the many miracles He performed. He took care of Bartimaeus and takes care of us as we faithfully BELIEVE. Help us remember to ask for help when we’re weary and weak. We will TRUST You all of our days and never forget where to find needed strength. In this Holy Week ahead, open our eyes so we will focus on Jesus and humbly remember what He has already done for us. Thank you, Lord. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank You. Amen
