Don't Give Up! Part 2

Mark 10:42
"Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediatly he recieved his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

Today we are going to talk about blind Bartimaeus. To shorten the story, Bartimaeus found out Jesus had the power to heal, so he began to cry out, "Jesus, have mercy on me." Many people told him to be quiet and there were many there in the crowd. But he cried out even louder. He refused to accept this condition as God's will. Neither should we.

When you face resistance, add persistence.

We need to be like blind Bartimaes today where we press through the junk of our daily lives to cry out in prayer to Jesus and not accept what the world has for us, but what Jesus has promised to us. Now in this story when he cried out to Jesus, it says Jesus stopped! So don't give up or move away until you have Jesus' attention. When your persistence causes Jesus to stop and notice you, your miracle is on its way!
