47 And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me.

48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.

49 And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be called. And they call the blind man, saying unto him, Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee.

50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus.

51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.

52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.

I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, and set me in a large place.

MFM Daily Devotional 2 July 2024 MESSAGE

There is a man in the Bible tagged and called by his problem. His name is Blind Bartimeus. This man could simply be called Bartimeus, but for him to be well known and rightly described, people in his environment named him according to his predicament, blindness.

This may be one reason why the man was desperate for healing, else he would remain a beggar. He heard about the Mighty Healer, Jesus and the wonders performed through Him. A day came that this blind man couldn’t but use what he had to get what he wanted. This was his voice! He couldn’t walk or run without help, but he could cry out loud to attract the attention of Jesus. The crowd rebuked him but he shouted the more. Jesus heard him and he received instant healing.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 1 July 2024 – Are Your Feet Beautiful?

What is that infirmity, affliction or negative situation that makes you desperate for solution? You don’t need to go after beggarly powers or strange powers that would multiply your problems. As a child of God, you have the privilege of a Father to whom you can reach at anytime and anywhere. His contact line is never shut down or out of reach. Call upon Him and you are certain to receive an instant response. Why should you remain complacent in your situation? Why resign to fate? “Whatever will be, will be” is not a confession of a child of God. God doesn’t create His children to suffer but sometimes allows them go through tough situations to become better and stronger. He can do the same for you.

In Mark 7:24-30, the Syrophoenician woman sought healing for her daughter and went to Jesus. In spite of what Jesus told her, that healing is for the children and not for dogs. She didn’t feel humiliated, rather she humbly surrendered to Jesus in great faith, believing that her daughter shall be healed. She looked up to Jesus, and the affliction became history. You can do the same. God is still in the business of healing, deliverance, salvation, prosperity and more, all through the name of Jesus. He can do the same for you if you would bring your desperate situation to Him and desperately cry out to Him in faith and in the name of Jesus.
