Mark 10:48 (KJV) 48 And many charged him that he should hold his peace: but he cried the more a great deal, Thou son of David, have mercy on me.
There are those who are physically blind but who see with the eyes of faith. Bartimaeus recognized Jesus as the “Son of David”—a then-known title for the awaited Messiah.
Oppositions can arise in our pursuit of the Lord; pursue Him nonetheless.
Presence of oppositions and obstructions doesn’t necessarily mean being out of God’s will. In fact, hindrances and attacks may be positive indicators that we are on the right track.
Persistence is a virtue—if it’s for the good, right, and godly.
We’re not obligated to always listen to what the crowd says. Praise God we know Who to always listen to. He’s always right.
The majority isn’t always right. Remember, there are a lot more people who prefer to enter the wide gate and walk the broad way.
There are desperate times when we need to push harder and raise our voices louder.
God’s mercy covers not only our deep spiritual needs but more than all our needs.
