What do you want Jesus to do for you?

Daily Thought

Your Word for 14 June 2024

Exodus 34:5
‘The LORD descended in a cloud and stood with him (Moses) there.’

Mark 10:51 “What do you want Me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. 

It seems to be strange that God would ask a blind man what he would want Him to do. Surely it is obvious that he wanted to see.
I have often thought about this. I have developed my own idea on this question. I believe that God knows what the root problem is. He knows the story behind the story. Often our requests are a cover-up for something deeper.
God knows what is at the heart of our requests. But He wants us to come to the same realization. The question we must ask ourselves is ‘What is the real issue?’
Blind Bartimaeus responds and says: ‘I want to see!’ He did not say I want to have sight. He said he wanted to see. There is a difference between having sight and actually seeing! I have met some people who have perfect sight but they are unable to actually see what is right in front of them.
What do YOU want Him to do for you? Have you ever given this serious thought? It is worth thinking about.
