What Do You Want Me To Do For You?

Shalom mishpochah,

We read in the book of Mark a story of a blind man’s encounter with Yeshua.  In Mark 10.50-52 it says,

50 Throwing down his blanket, he jumped up and came over to Yeshua.

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” asked Yeshua. The blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me be able to see again.”

52 Yeshua said to him, “Go! Your trust (faith) has healed you.” Instantly he received his sight and followed him on the road.

I believe Yeshua is asking each of us the same question – What do you want me to do for you at this season of your life?  Let us reflect on what our answer would be.  It was easy for the blind man.  He knew what his greatest need was – to be able to see. Although many of us can physically see, unfortunately, we do not always perceive correctly the greatest need that we have.

In verse 46 – 49 we are told that this blind man yelled out when he heard Yeshua had come to town.  Many scolded him trying to shut him up, but he cried out even louder. He was not going to let this opportunity pass him by.  He didn’t care what anyone else thought or how much they tried to discourage him. His need was great and there before Him stood the one who could meet that need.  He would not let anyone or anything stop Him from getting the answer to His need.

Receiving his sight forever changed this blind man.  Adonai wants to forever change your life.  He has the power to do so.  His arm is not to short, His power is not limited, and there is nothing too difficult for Him.  The blind man knew this truth.  He knew that only Yeshua could grant what-do-you-want-me-to-do-for-youthe answer to his greatest need.  Do you realize that?  If you do, what are you willing to do to see G-d move in your life?  Will you ignore those who tell you it’s foolish to think that   G-d can move in your life?  Will you push aside the thoughts meant to discourage you ca
what-do-you-want-me-to-do-for-youusing you to shrink back? How desperate are you to see the answer to your need?  Will you cry out in the same desperation as Bar Tamai, the blind man, to the One Who will forever change your life?  Will you do whatever it takes to grab hold of Him until He brings release into your life?  The reality is He is waiting and willing to move in your life.

Yeshua asks you today, “What do you want me to do for you?”

Blessings,

Rabbi Carol
