Just One Question


There was a blind man that heard Jesus was coming to town. Jesus had a reputation for making things work that didn't work.  Legs, arms and even eyes! This man could not see but he could speak, in fact he could yell. And that's just what he did! When Jesus was coming by he yelled "Jesus, have mercy on me!" His voice was so loud that it could not be ignored. His voice stopped Jesus. Jesus had him brought closer. When the blind man was standing before him, Jesus didn't touch him. Jesus didn't start to pray for him. Jesus did not anoint him with oil. He simply asked him a question: "What do you want me to do for you?"
What a landmark moment! It's what we would call a divine appointment. Our pursuit places us in the presence and the power of Jesus. And what does He ask? One simple question. What do YOU want? What if the blind man had said "I want something nice to wear?" Or "I'd like to have a nice home in the burbs."
Bartimaeus could have focused on things but he didn't. And don't be fooled: Jesus knew exactly what he wanted... even before He asked. When Bartimaeus said "I want to see!" Faith collided with power and a miracle was born!
Imagine your pursuit and prayer landing you right in front of Jesus. This is your divine appointment. Picture Him waiting for your words to agree with His plan for your life so that the blessings can come. All that you need to live the life that He created and purposed for you to live is right there in front of you. All you have to do is answer one simple question...What do YOU want?
