Bold In Faith

Jesus gives the disciples additional facts about His future as explained in Luke 18:31-43. He would be handed over to Gentiles who would mock, insult, spit, flog, and kill Him. On the third day, He would be raised to life. The disciples had seen all the miracles and this did not seem possible because they knew Jesus had the power to overcome anything.

Along the way to Jericho, Jesus and His disciples passed by a blind beggar who shouted out to Jesus, “Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stopped and told them to bring the man over to Him. Jesus then ask the obvious question in verse 41, “What do you want me to do for you?” This question was asked so that the blind beggar could express his belief that Jesus was the Messiah and that He could heal his blindness.

This day with God, believe that every doubt or fear will be overcome and replaced by a deep abiding trust in Him with a bold faith like the blind beggar. Plan out time for prayer, ask for His guidance, and share experiences that have given praise to God.
