He Will Heal You
by Max Lucado
Are you waiting for Jesus to heal you? Take hope from Jesus’ response to the blind man in Mark 10:45-47.
“Have mercy on us, O Lord!” the blind man cried. Everyone else kept going. Jesus froze. Something caught his attention. Interrupted his journey. Raising his hand to stop the people, lifting a finger to his lips for them to be quiet. What was it? What did Jesus hear?
A prayer. An unembellished appeal for help floating on winds of faith and landing against his ear. Jesus heard the words and stopped. He still does. And he still asks, “What do you want Me to do for you?”
Before amen—comes the power of a simple prayer! And Jesus’ heart went out to the blind men. He touched their eyes. Jesus moved in where others had stepped away. He healed them. At the gateway to heaven, God’s children will once again be whole!
From Before Amen
