So he began shouting, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” “Be quiet!” the people in front yelled at him. But he only shouted louder, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”When Jesus heard him, he stopped and ordered that the man be brought to him. As the man came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord,” he said, “I want to see!” And Jesus said, “All right, receive your sight! Your faith has healed you.” Instantly the man could see, LK 18:38-43a. The blind beggar would not let others create doubt or stifle his faith. When he heard that Jesus was near, he called out even louder believing for his miracle. Like this man, we haven’t seen Jesus, but have heard of what He has done from others, or read of His miracles in the Word. Praise God today that as we press in to Him and call out to Jesus, who never changes, He will also hear our cry as we persist in faith, and answer our prayer.
