8 May Open Heaven

MEMORISE: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.” – (Mark 10:51)

READ: 2 Kings 2:9-10 (KJV)

One would think that the lame man at the Beautiful Gate (Acts 3) would ask that his ankles be strengthened; instead, he asked the Apostles for alms. Many of us are like this lame man; we do not know exactly what we need.

In today’s memory verse, Jesus asked the blind man crying after Him what he wanted. The question may appear needless as there should be only one pressing need for a blind man. Yet, if you look at the lame man in Acts 3, you would understand the importance of the question. That is why God is asking you today: “What do you need? Do you really know?”

Elijah asked Elisha in (2 Kings 2:9-10)  for what he needed. The latter did not waste time as he quickly asked for the double portion of his masters anointing. He knew what he wanted, did as his master required and got his blessing.

Many years ago, a mighty man of God offered us – participants at an international conference in the United States – an opportunity to ask for what we needed for our ministries.  While some asked for books, tracts and financial assistance, I asked Him to lay his anointed hands on me for the work of the ministry. He was surprised but impressed about my specific and uncommon request; he did so, prayed for me and today, you are a living testimony of Gods faithfulness in our ministry.

“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” – (Matthew 6:33)

As a child of God, it is better for you to go after the Giver of gifts than the gifts themselves. This is the most needful pursuit of your life – the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.

When this is settled, your Father will meet all your other needs. He will take care of you as His child. Do the needful: accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, then trust Him for everything (John 3:3,5). He will surely meet all your needs (Philippians 4:19) in the mighty name of Jesus.
