When Jesus heard him, he stopped and said, “Tell him to come here.” So they called the blind man. “Cheer up,” they said. “Come on, he’s calling you!” Bartimaeus threw aside his coat, jumped up, and came to Jesus. Mk 10-49-50. When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was calling, he threw aside His approved beggars coat, that gave him permission to beg, and went to Jesus. When he cast aside his coat, he cast aside his poverty, he made a prophetic declaration that Jesus would heal Him, and he aligned Himself, in faith, with the Word to receive his sight. He wasn’t approaching Jesus as an each way bet with his coat in one hand, just in case. He was putting his faith in God knowing that Jesus would heal Him so he would no longer need to beg. Praise God today that He is calling you. He is faithful to His Word and will respond to your hearts cry as you reach out to Him, in faith, expectant of a touch from Heaven.
