SMS Message - THE CONFIDENCE THAT BLIND BARTIMAEUS HAS IN JESUS MADE HIM TO CONTINUE TO CALL TO HIM FOR MERCY DESPITE ATTEMPTS TO SILENCE HIM. MARK 10:46-52. HOLD ONTO YOUR CONFIDENCE IN HIM TOO. NORMALLY, WHEN YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE IN WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN AND THE PATH YOU CHOOSE TO TOUR, IT WOULD NOT MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES, SO LONG AS THE RESULT WILL JUSTIFY THE MEANS. THERE ARE TWO PRINCIPLES IN WHAT BLIND BARTIMAEUS DID – ONE IS THE PRINCIPLE OF ASKING IN PRAYERS – AND TWO IS THE CONFIDENCE HE HAS IN THE GOD HE WAS PRAYING TO. IT WOULD AMOUNT TO A WASTE OF TIME IF YOU ENGAGE IN PRAYERS OF ASKING BUT YOU HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN THE GOD YOU ARE MAKING REQUEST TO. SO IF YOU TRULY HAVE CONFIDENCE IN GOD, YOU SHOULD NOT BE DISTURBED BY HOW LONG YOU HAVE BEEN PRAYING, WHAT SHOULD MATTER TO YOU IS WHETHER THE GOD YOU ARE PRAYING TO IS ABLE TO GRANT YOUR REQUEST. PSALM 65:2 SAYS “O YOU WHO HEAR PRAYER, TO YOU ALL FLESH WILL COME”. THE PARABLE IN LUKE 18:1-8 ABOUT A WIDOW WHO WAS PERSISTENT IN MAKING A REQUEST TO AN UNJUST JUDGE ALSO SHOWS THE PRINCIPLE OF ASKING AND HAVING CONFIDENCE IN THE ONE TO WHOM YOU ARE MAKING A REQUEST. JUST MAKE SURE WHAT YOU ARE ASKING IS NOT OUTSIDE HIS WILL. NO MATTER HOW HARD THE TIMES MAY BE, LET US LEARN TO KEEP OUR ACTIONS AND STEPS WITHIN THE WORD OF GOD. LET US HOLD HIM TO HIS WORDS. LET THE CONTENT OF HIS WORD BE THE SOURCE OF YOUR CONFIDENCE. HE THAT ANSWERS BARTIMAEUS WILL ANSWER US TOO. HE IS A MERCY GOD. HE WILL NOT WITHHOLD HIS MERCY FROM US PSALM 40:11.
