Is the crowd keeping you from a miracle?
Is it possible that those people following Jesus are keeping you from Him?
Could the crowd keep you from the blessings that are readily available but hard to see?
Jesus wants you to see Love and hear Love and feel Love because God is Love. But if we listen to the crowd around Jesus and if we stop because of what we are told or what we hear we may miss Jesus even as He walks within feet of us.
“As Jesus and His disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed Him. Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, ‘Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!’ The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet,
but they shouted all the louder, ‘Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!‘” – Matthew 20:29-34
In my life for a period of time the crowd around Jesus tried to keep me quiet but I found this to be true for me – Jesus was right there the whole time wanting me to seek Him with all my heart and forget the crowd.
Could it be that listening to the crowd would have caused these men to miss a miracle to not be blessed and to never have sight to see the amazing life around them?
Is it possible that the same crowd is around Jesus today and keeping you from a miracle and a blessing of Biblical proportions?
Perhaps the crowd has already silenced you and now you are angry at God or even bitter?
Please remember it wasn’t Jesus saying “be quiet” it was some people that surrounded Him that were not of Him for had they been about Christ they would have helped the blind men.
As soon as Jesus was aware of the men He stopped and called to them:
“What do you want me to do for you?”
Is Jesus asking you this same question right now?
“Lord” they answered, “we want our sight.”
Vs. 34 “Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed Him.”
You don’t have to be quiet any longer and in fact by being quiet you are missing a healing that will make life so much more amazing. Don’t listen to the crowd listen to the Man who taught us how to Love, be healed and follow the Love NOT the crowd.
Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full!!
