Stopping Jesus

Matthew 20:29-34

Have you ever prayed with such passion and persistence that you stopped God in His tracks? (Matthew 20:32)

That’s what these two blind guys did on the road from Jericho to Jerusalem. People tried to silence them. But the resistance of the crowd only increased the resolve of the blind men. I don’t know what’s more remarkable, that they cried so loudly that Jesus stopped or the question Jesus asked when he turned to speak with them.

“What do you want me to do for you?”

Seems obvious. You are the Son of God, right? Yet these men don’t hesitate. “We want to see.” Jesus makes it so, and their lives are never the same again.

What are you praying today? Will you pray with passion and persistence? When the time comes what will you ask Jesus to do for you?

Will your request open your eyes or the eyes of others?

People may try to silence you. Disappointment may discourage you. Let the resistance you face increase your resolve. God’s not afraid of your questions. He welcomes them. But get ready. When the answer comes, the way you see the world will never be the same.
