When God stands still for you.


Mark 10:47-49  KJV
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. 
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. 
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.

Can you imagine? Jesus stood still when the blind beggar, Bartimaeus, called out!

Yes. God stood still

The blind man boldly ask for mercy and for sight. Jesus restored his sight! 

Opportunities like that never repeat themselves!  

How are your spiritual eyes? Do you obey when God asks you to step out? Are you missing out on God's choice blessings when you can't hear His call or when you are unwilling to obey? Those blessings can make a difference for someone else, but if you don't act...No one benefits. 

ASK YOURSELF: Would you see an opportunity that God put in front on you? Have you responded to the Spirit's calling recently? Last year or two months ago don't count. What about today?

Are you timid, insecure or afraid to go where God leads you? 

Have you answered His call? Will you step out of your comfort zone?

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.

But it’s interesting that in my sadness, I’ve come to appreciate how God works my faith steps. Before I decided that God’s purpose for me was greater than my own purpose, I had a hard time being close to people because it hurt that they might die or leave me. God opened my understanding (and healed me) so that I could come to terms with that and step into the gifts of compassion he planned for me. I started to feel that familiar hurt earlier this we…
