Monday, 1/18/10 – Genesis 44-46; Luke 18 – “LORD, I WANT TO SEE!”

S— Luke 18:40 - Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, "What do you want me to do for you?" "Lord, I want to see," he replied.

O— A blind man heard that Jesus was passing by and he called out to Him. Those along the way told him to be quiet, but he shouted out all the more. Jesus was moved by his persistence and asked the blind man what he wanted from Him. The blind man replied, “Lord I want to see.” And Jesus said “receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” When the blind man received his sight, he followed Jesus, praising Him, and when others saw it, they also praised God.

A— In stating his desire to see, the blind man was confident that Jesus had the power to heal him. Opposition made the man even more determined to get to Jesus. He knew what he needed and He knew Jesus could touch Him. How often we give up when we face opposition on our way to the Master. Just as the blind man stated clearly, “Lord, I want to see,” we can say the same thing regarding the things of the Kingdom. We may face obstacles as we pursue greater revelation, but if we will be determined and persevere and cry out to the Lord, He will be faithful and show us the things of the Kingdom.

P—Lord, “we want to see” the things of the Kingdom! Teach us to see as You see, so that we may be carriers of Your love, Your hope, Your glory…no matter what we may face.
