“And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him,
crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. And when He
was come into the house, the blind men came to Him; and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye
that I am able to do this? They said unto Him, Yea, Lord. Then
touched He their eyes, saying, According to your faith be
it unto you. And their eyes were opened …” (Matthew -30)
One day two blind
men who needed a miracle approached Jesus. They wanted to be able to
see. You’ll notice in the above text that because of their persistence, Jesus gave them His undivided
attention. If you will persist in pursuing Jesus’ help, He will give
you His undivided attention as well.
Let’s look at what
the blind men did to get Jesus’ attention.
acknowledged Jesus as the Promised Messiah and Deliverer. They cried
out, “Thou Son of David …”. That will
get Jesus’ attention every time. Anytime anyone anywhere recognizes
Him as the Promised Messiah and says so, He immediately gives His undivided
Do you recognize
Jesus as the Bible’s Promised Messiah? He said, “I am the Way, the
Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father but by Me.” (John
14:6) Do you believe this?
If so, just say, “Jesus, You’re my choice” (Romans ) and you’ll be
well on your way to receiving the miracle that you need.
The second thing
they did to capture Jesus’ attention was to ask Him for mercy. Sometimes we need to stop trying to figure
out how to pray and simply ask God for mercy.
The Bible says that
God’s tender mercies are over all of His works. (Psalm 145:9) The
Bible also says that you are His workmanship. (Ephesians 2:10) This
means that He desires to have mercy on you. Just ask.
Once these men got
Jesus’ attention by acknowledging His Lordship and asking for mercy, He put
forth this question to them. “Believe ye
that I am able to do this?”
If you have now gotten His attention
by acknowledging His Lordship and asking for mercy, He would ask you the
same question. “Do you believe that I am able to perform this miracle
Can you believe that Jesus is willing and able to help you, no
matter how big your need is in your own eyes?
If so, tell Him, as
the blind men did. Say, “Jesus, not only are You my choice as Savior
and Miracle Worker, but I also believe that You can and You will help
Then tell Him what you need. Do what I did
as a former drug addict over 30 years ago. Promise Him that in
exchange for His help, you will help Him reach the world with His love and
miracle power for the rest of your life.
Lordship. Ask for mercy. Believe that He is willing and is able
to help you.
Make a commitment to Jesus and Jesus will make a
commitment to you.
