‘So Jesus answered and said to him, “What do you want Me to do for you?” The blind man said to Him, “Rabboni, that I may receive my sight.”’
Can you imagine Jesus walking up to you and asking, “What do you want Me to do for you?” What would you say? What would you ask Jesus to do for you?
It is hard to believe that the Lord would ask us what He could do for us, but sometimes that is exactly the question we must answer. Bartimaeus was blind, but he knew exactly what he wanted Jesus to do for him. He wanted Jesus to give him vision.
He didn’t just receive physical vision, his eyes were opened to Jesus Christ. Jesus knew Bartimaeus’ heart was faithful and immediately he was miraculously healed, physically and spiritually.
When we pray according to God’s will, He will answer our requests. When we pray in faith, He will give what we ask. God delights in responding to our requests and supplications. If we ask according to His will, we, like Bartimaeus, will receive far more than we anticipated.
Begin your day by asking Jesus what is on your heart that you desire. Pray that what you ask for is aligned with the will of God.
Lord, help me to know Your will so I can ask and receive from You. Forgive me for not having faith that You are willing and ready to give what I ask. Let my requests be according to what You have in store for me.
