What Do You Want God to Do for You?

Luke 18:40-43

“40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied. 42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.”

I used to have a dream that I could not walk and was confined to a wheelchair.  Then suddenly I would stand up and could feel my legs and I would begin to run, and running was the greatest feeling in the world.  I would be so happy, jumping around and running.  Then I would wake up.  

I used to imagine that this is the way the blind man that Jesus healed felt when he could see.

If God were to ask you what you want Him to do for you, what would your answer be?  The blind man asked to see.  He did not ask for wealth, or wisdom, or any material thing.  He asked only to see.

We take way too many things for granted that, if they were taken away, would be worth more than all the wealth or wisdom or material possessions we could possibly have.

Think hard.

What do you want God to do for you?

May the love of Christ be with you,

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
