What He Did not say
By Victoria Osteen - Apr 11, 2017

Mark chapter 10 talks about a blind man who came to Jesus. Jesus asked the man, "What do you want Me to do for you?" The blind man replied without hesitation, "I want to see!"

The blind man knew what he wanted, he knew Jesus was able to do it, and he dared to ask for big things. When Jesus replied, He didn't say, "Hmmm, let Me see if you've been good enough to deserve this healing." He didn't say, "What have you done for Me lately?" He didn't say, "What are you going to do for Me in return?" Jesus simply told the blind man, "Go your way; your faith has healed you."

We have to remember, Jesus isn't keeping score. He's not looking to see if you deserve His blessing. He's looking at your faith in Him. The truth is none of us deserve God's goodness. But we have to realize that His goodness is not based on who we are; His goodness is based on who He is. Romans 3:23 says that all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory. But if we come to Him, if we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to forgive our sin and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9) When we come to Him in faith, He will restore us, heal us, and deliver us! He will do above and beyond what we could ever imagine!

Today, let's follow the example of this blind man and come to God in faith. Ask Him for the big things and don't hold back! He's not looking at what you've done wrong today; He's looking at what you are doing right. He's ready
