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 and question what will happen next. We wonder how God will guide, provide and prepare us with what we need to know to move in the right direction. We have difficulty opening our eyes and need to be reminded HOW 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 and was able to see! He was healed because he BELIEVED! In grateful offerings of praise, he chose to follow Jesus. Those who witnessed the miracle, praised our mighty God!
God holds us together in circumstances of life and demonstrates the power of His holiness. When we’re blinded by the lack of faith, He opens our eyes to TRUST. He helps us navigate "ups and downs" and remember who handles our days.
When the future is unclear, we must seek the One who longs to strengthen our hearts and stop allowing distractions to silence HOPE. God will help us remain faithful. He will ready us to move ahead. When we can't see clearly, He will lead us to a wonderful 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 He will take care of us and those we love.
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 in YOU as we experience the love of Your faithfulness and be reminded who is in control of EVERY single thing. Help us remain faithful, so we will put our HOPE in YOU and never doubt Your ability to know what's best for our lives. Thank you for Your mighty love. It covers us in so many beautiful ways as we pray for direction. Amen
