Mark 10:49 says, “So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called. Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise; He is calling you.”

When blind Bartimaeus heard that Jesus was passing by, he shouted immediately, “Son of David, have mercy on me”. He kept on seeking the attention of Jesus Christ, even though he was discouraged by the people around him. He was unmoved and simply ignored his distractors. Jesus called unto him, asked what he wanted and said, “Go your way; your faith has made you well.” The story of blind Bartimaeus (Mark 10:46–52) encourages us to keep on seeking the face of God, not minding the distractions until He calls us.

The more you seek God in your hard times, the better improved the fruit of your prayer life is. This is because when you take God’s Word to heart and truly make it a part of you, it will by its very nature change you. Remember that when your battle is getting tougher, you are getting closer to your breakthrough and your solution is just a moment away. We are to bless the name of God in the face of tests and trials, keep seeking His face and let Him answer us in His own schedule, not ours.

Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, give me the grace to seek You continuously in the face of temptations, tests, trials, tribulations, in Jesus’ name! Amen!
