Blessed are those who believe; though you do not see Him, you trust Jesus, and rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. Even though you can't see Jesus, even though you can't touch Him, you can talk to Him through prayer. Jesus is as close to you as the words on your lips. Jesus said, 'Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed' - there is a blessing upon those who believe.
The Father God was in Jesus, and Jesus in Him. From the beginning, Jesus was with God, and Jesus was God. All things were made through and by Him for His Glory. When God wanted to show His love for you, He sent His Son into the world. How did Jesus work miracles of healing? It was because He is God. How will God work miracles in your life? - Through His Spirit living and working through you.
I want you to know who Jesus really is, to experience His love and power. The amazing thing about blind Bartimaeus is that despite his blindness, he ‘saw’ Jesus - he recognised Him as the Son of God with power. My prayer is that God would open your eyes so that you would have eyes to see and ears to hear: to know in whom you have believed.
God hears every prayer; He knows what troubles you; God is concerned about you. Jesus said the hairs on your head are numbered, so don't be afraid. God is not deaf, you don't need to shout to be heard. You can speak in the softest whisper and He will hear you. You don't need to be in a big temple or church to be noticed, God will hear you wherever you are.
One touch from Jesus and all that hinders you will be removed. When Jesus healed the leper in Matthew 8, in that one touch he was cleansed, healed and restored; that one touch removed the stigma and shame of his condition. That one touch brought emotional and physical healing. When Jesus healed the blind man in John 9 with one touch, his testimony of “once I was blind but now I can see”, not only changed his life, but all those around him.
There is a very narrow gap between life and death; the difference between the two is so small. The Bible says that we walk through the valley of the shadow of death: in life we walk through death, in death we experience life. How do we experience this life? Jesus said He is the resurrection and the life, whoever believes in Him, though he is dead, yet shall he live.
I want to show you how God can literally change your life today. As you read His Word and listen to His voice, you are being transformed into His image. The Bible teaches that we are being changed from glory to glory… for those God foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son (2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 8:29).
“Jesus, help me!” - God hears the cries of the desperate and anguished. So many people are in the same position as Jairus: “Jesus, it is too late; my daughter has died.” But it is never too late with Jesus. No situation is too far gone; no person too lost, that the power of God cannot reach and save.
