Go to God

Loving this:

Christ suffered the blind man to be most importunate and unceasing in his cries to him, Luke 18:38, 39.  He continued crying, “Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.”

Others who were present rebuked him, that he should hold his peace, looking upon it as too great a boldness and an indecent behavior towards Christ, thus to cry after him as he passed by. But Christ did not rebuke him, but stood and commanded him to be brought unto him, saying, “What wilt thou that I should do to thee?”

And when the blind man had told him, Christ graciously granted his request.

The freedom of access that God gives, appears also in allowing us to come to him by prayer for everything we need, both temporal and spiritual, whatever evil we need to be delivered from, or good we would obtain.

– Jonathan Edwards

Whatever happens today: talk to your God.  Come to Him by prayer for anything and everything: big or small, fear or hope.

He stands ready.  He stands willing.

And that is not a given.  That is a miracle purchased for you at no small cost: by the life and death of the man who is ours: Jesus.
