How to have a better and happier life
And it happened that he came near Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the roadside begging. And hearing the multitude pass by, he asked what it meant. And they told him that Jesus of Nazareth passeth by. And he cried, saying, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me. And those who went before rebuked him to be quiet; but he cried out the more: Son of David, have mercy on me! Then Jesus stood, and commanded him to be brought; and when he came, he asked him, saying, What do you do? And I said, Lord, I see. And Jesus said to him: Look; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he saw, and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people saw it, gave praise to God. Luke 18:35 43
In this world there are several types of blindness: have the physical, which is the case of the blind Bartimaeus we just saw, but there is also a spiritual blindness, sentimental, professional, business and so on.
Bartimaeus was depending on handouts. He was depending on the help of others. When he learned of Jesus he was around he let the little things aside and began to cry out for something much bigger and better: his vision. He started screaming, but people who passed by talking to him to shut up. But Bartimaeus was not silent. He started screaming even louder. He knew very well what he wanted. He wanted to see. And Bartimaeus cries paid off. The Lord Jesus called him. And as Bartimaeus approached Jesus asked: What do you do?
And you? What is your need? A wedding? A ministry? A job? A company? A girlfriend (o)? A college? Your own business? No matter what your need if you lack the necessary vision you will not know where to go, let alone how. The Lord Jesus has told us this when He said that without him we could not do anything. You can not be successful walking in the dark, uncertain or unknown. To succeed you need to see well, and farther. It must have vision. And how to have more vision?
I am the light of the world; Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness; but shall have the light of life. – John 8:12
I do not know how is your life. Maybe you are a person who has not found a real love. You pray, cry and nothing handsome or good-looking appear. Does your happiness is not closer than you think? It may be that your case is another. It may be that today you are living a large and destructive illusion, is in a relationship that does not please God and that leaves you completely blind (a) to see the truth. Maybe you are totally blind (o) and are not seeing what everyone else sees: that this man or this woman is not what God has in store for you.
Perhaps you would like to see better things of God. You even trying to delve into, but something happens and makes you have no strength, not take courage to move forward. It may be that your case is that the person who has a distorted view of faith and service to the Lord. Or it may be someone being a victim of any sale placed by the enemy, which prevents you to go beyond the work of God.
On the other hand, you may want to see better to make a difference in their professional, financial or business life. Would you like to have better vision to be a different employee, have a clearer financial life, have a more enlightened now the Lord. Finally! You want to stand out. You want to get out of the shadows and growing by leaps and bounds. Stand out not to be proud, but to take possession of their prosperity and their abundant life, and then put their talents at the service of the Lord. The Lord Jesus Christ told us:
And whatever you ask in my name I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. John 14:13
Pray to God and ask that He, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ give us more insight. More vision to see the reality that is happening in our emotional life, more vision so we can see the ministry that the Lord wants us to do. More insight into the business world. So we can see the true and great opportunities. More vision to see new horizons where we can all see limitations and barriers. More vision to see growth where everyone views the crisis.
When we set out to ask God for something we have to have a lot of faith. Make no mistake. Do not just ask and then receive. You have to ask, ask, and then receive merit. What we ask is to be born in our hearts first, then become a reality. The Lord back to reality desire what is contained in our hearts. The Lord Jesus has taught us that. He once said, is made as to their faith. And also spoke on another occasion: Be done as you believe. If we do not have a faith of this magnitude we have to call first for that faith. We have to hit … Crash … … insist insist and persist until we receive this faith that really makes a difference in the lives of everyone who believes.
Pray to God and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, ask for him to have a privileged view. Ask Him to give you a clearer view of things. Ask Him to do you see the ways through which He wants you to go. He makes you see the gifts He has given you. He makes you see what He wants you to be. He makes you see and differentiate the chance of deception. He makes you see the truth over the lie. He makes you see solutions where everyone sees problems. He makes you see the wolf in sheep's clothing. He makes you see your true friends. He makes you see the true intent of a person. He makes you see the danger. He makes you see the true path of holiness. He makes you see a relationship, and one that will really make you happy. He makes you see where all outputs are trapped. He makes you see the following correct path. He makes you look away. He makes you see that the best way for you is beside him, adored and glorified Him, and not in the world. And finally, what do you see Him by faith, the fulfillment of all the promises that the Lord has for your life.
A big hug and be with God
