Tonight I babysat my darling little granddaughters so my daughter and her hubby could have a date-night. Every time little 18-month-old Kinsey wanted a "yummy", she'd grab my finger and pull me to the kitchen to show me exactly what she wanted. My daughter has a pantry and I'd open it and point to various things. "What do you want?" She'd stand there and shake her head till I found the thing she wanted. She was quite adamant until I held up the right thing. I do believe she knew every item in that pantry.
I was reading a few days ago of two blind men who were crying out to Jesus in a crowd. "The crowds reproved them and told them to keep still, but they cried all the more." Mt. 20:31 Jesus stopped and called them, and asked, "What do you want Me to do for you?" (vs.32)
"Lord, we want our eyes to be opened!" Jesus, in pity, touched their eyes and instantly they received their sight and followed Him." (vs.33,34)
I've pondered that a lot the last few days. So many times I've come to Jesus with my requests. Heal me, comfort me, guide me, strengthen me. And Jesus answers each and every one. Always. Today I think of some other things I want from God's pantry.
~~the eyes of the lost to be opened.
~~the hearts of God's people to be broken.
~~the Spirit of the Lord to fill the land.
~~the children of God to love one another without reserve.
~~the Lord to be magnified, glorified and manifested in the lives of His people.
Today, I want a lot. What do you want? selahV
