We have been praying for a closer walk with Jesus - Oh, to follow Him more closely! Have you stopped to think of the crowds in your lives that could hinder you from following Jesus? In the story of the woman with the issue of blood, she pressed through the crowds, she did not allow her condition to hinder her...she pressed on and touched the hem of His garment and the rest is history. In Mark 10:46-52, we are told about Bartimaeus, who was blind but he knew Jesus was coming and shouted,' Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me.' The more he shouted the more the crowds tries to quieten him and the louder he shouted. The Bible says 'Jesus stopped.' Regardless of what we are going through, regardless of our circumstance and situation Jesus is calling us to follow Him. Mark 8:34 states ' if any man come after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me.' What are our crowds....anger, unforgiveness, malice. self righteousness...may God give us the strength to press through and receive healing and deliverance. May we trade or shame for the righteousness of Jesus. When we follow Jesus, we will never be the same again.
