You and I can do very little for anyone else until Jesus has made a difference for us. God wants to help us let go of the things that have been weighing us down so that we can be set free!
Are you ready to let go of your past and your hurts? When Bartimaeus says yes, that is when Jesus heals him.
Does God heal people today? Absolutely! Often the deepest kind of healing happens in 2 steps:
- When we let go of the lies and distortions that we believe about ourselves and about who God is.
- And, when we replace those lies with the truth of who God is and who we are.
At the end of the day we are sons and daughters of a God who loves us.
