🔴 Healing Faith
Guiding Scripture:Mark 10:46-52
Our circle of confidants may change as a result of seeking to be healed.
We read about the blind beggar, Bartimaeus, crying out to be healed by Jesus, but he was told to be quiet: to stop yelling. Jesus had already performed many miracles; everyone knew His character of mercy, love, and grace. The “people” standing closest to Bartimaeus told him to hush. Bartimaeus cried out even louder, and Jesus, the Son of God, healed him because of his faith and belief.
REVERENCE- honor or deep respect felt or shown for someone or something.
We will show our reverence to God through how we treat ourselves and others.
Our family, friends, neighbors, and loved ones should respect, not discourage our desire for change. That is the reverence application; those closest to us honoring our right to be healed and renewed.
People rarely notice what we do all-the-time because it’s our routine. They, as well as ourselves, are habitual beings. The desire for change, I believe, is born out of our mustard seed faith. It is persistent and something that we can not let go. Faith becomes the thing we feel is missing from our lives or the basis for learning more about the Higher Being that created the universe. However, we look at it until we fill this void or grow in faith, we will always feel incomplete. This -is- brokenness. Our lives without God, ignoring the Holy Spirit within us that is craving to be nourished. It is the foundation we live through.
Prayer: Father, please help us come to you. We know you will remove us from the faithless and heal us completely. We are made whole in You. Amen
