Scripture Reading: Mar 10: 50-52
And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
Reflections:He cried out very loudly to Him for healing. Jesus then asked him to come over. Filled with joy, Bartimaeus got ready to run towards Jesus. In the process, he took off the outer cloak and threw it away. The cloak served as his identity as a blind man. By throwing it away, it implied that if he failed to get healed, it was going to be difficult for people to identify him as a blind man and give him the necessary guidance. The rational thing he should have done was to have approached Jesus in his cloak to serve as a PLAN B. By this, if his expectation for healing fails, he will at least find the needed sympathy and help to get back. As he stood before Jesus without that Plan B, Jesus marveled and healed him straight away. The absence of a Plan B therefore speaks of absolute faith. This is what activates miracles. God certainly moves when you approach him without a Plan B.
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to move in absolute faith abandoning any Plan B as I believe you for miracles.
Confession: I move with absolute faith in God. I don’t approach Him with Plan B’s!
