When God asked us a question, trust and believe that he already knows the answer; it’s for us – Not Him. In the story of the blind men following behind Jesus repeatedly asking, “Son of David have Mercy on Us”, sounds a lot like me, you and everybody else that I know. We know what it is that we want but it seems impossible to have; and then to add insult-to-injury, much of the time it’s as though God is iggin’ the heck out of us! (Matthew 9:28)
Blindness must be a prerequisite of faith or at least a first cousin because it strikes most who are on a faith-journey to the Land of Promise that God has placed in each of our hearts; not one hope alike, like a fingerprint – What’s for you is for you and what’s for me is for me.
The blind men cried out – but nothing changed – He answered them not a word. Sound familiar? You keep asking God what now? Which way to turn? Do you even hear me? And he answers us not a word.
God reiterates to us over-and-over again that we walk by faith and not by sight, so why then do we continue to look down at the pitfalls and not up to him?
When Jesus gets good and ready, he will turn to us and ask us the same question he posed to the blind men, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” and when he does, will you give a snarky retort for being made to wait or will you be able to reply, “Yes Lord”?
We must continue to believe although the vision may still be unclear and tarrying.
