Faith, The Lifestyle of Saints
Faith Provides The Way
The healing of Bartimaeus was an objective statement of faith. The faith that made him whole was his faith in the Truth, the Way and the Light, the Light that a blind man could see.
The way, which Jesus told Bartimaeus to go, was contained in the Truth and Jesus is the Truth. The thought that a blind man was less than whole is a progressive indication that we are whole, but we are not whole without the Faith of Jesus.
With our faith in Him, we can conquer anything because it is what God wants. Because Jesus only desired to do the Will of the Father we too must humble ourselves and submit to the paradigm that has never changed- "Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven…"
If your eyes have been opened then you can relate to the words of Amazing Grace - T'was blind but now I see. The vision of being able to see as Christ saw is also confirmed in this African American hymn: All things come of Thee, O Lord, and of Thine own have we given Thee. Amen.
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.
The God of My Mercy, Elohim Chaseddi (Psalm 59:10); we thank You for the Way of Light that gives us deliverance. We praise You for the Faith wherein we walk and receive our sight. We decree and declare blessings upon those whose eyes have been opened by the Faith of Jesus Christ, so that; with a clear vision we seek the Will of the Father to be done here on earth as it is in Heaven. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
