Lishman: Today, cry out to Jesus

Friday, 10 July 2020

'Many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more.' Mark 10:48 NKJV


Try to imagine being blind all your life, then one day miraculously receiving your sight. And the first face you see - is the face of Jesus! That's what happened to Bartimaeus. Jesus was passing by the spot where he sat begging every day. Recognising this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Bartimaeus cried out for help at the top of his lungs.

Sometimes dignified prayer won't get the job done. Desperate situations call for desperate measures. Sometimes you've got to cry out to God from the depths of your soul! 'Jesus stood still' (Mark 10:49 NKJV) when Bartimaeus shouted. Your cry will get God's attention. David said, 'I cried out to you, and you healed me' (Psalm 30:2 NKJV). Don't be reluctant, be confident. 'Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need' (Hebrews 4:16 NKJV).

The Bible says, 'Throwing his cloak aside, [Bartimaeus] jumped to his feet and came to Jesus' (Mark 10:50 NIV). He did that for two reasons: first, a long robe could have tripped him up; second, his clothes identified him as a beggar. To get to Jesus, you must be willing to throw aside everything that stands in your way. The shame and failure of your past, your lack and your limitations, the labels other people have put on you. When Jesus restores and makes you whole, you won't have to wear those old garments anymore. And here's another thought: when Bartimaeus regained his sight, he decided to follow Jesus (see Mark 10:52), and you must do that too.

Lishman: You're in God's waiting room

Wednesday, 8 July 2020

'Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him.' Psalm 37:7 NKJV


When you're in a doctor's waiting room there are things you shouldn't do - like try to treat other patients, or have them treat you. Or ask the receptionist for a stethoscope or a blood pressure cuff. And it wouldn't be wise to ask the person sitting next to you, 'What prescriptions are you taking? Perhaps I could try them.' It's called a waiting room because you're supposed to wait.

But we don't like to wait. We weave through traffic looking for a faster lane. We drum our fingers on the worktop while the microwave heats our coffee: 'Come on, come on.' We don't like to wait for anything, including God. Over and over in Scripture when it speaks about our relationship with God, the word 'wait' keeps showing up. And here's what we fail to understand: while we are waiting, God is working. Jesus said, 'My Father is always at his work' (John 5:17 NIV).

The sign on God's waiting room reads 'Be still, and know that I am God' (Psalm 46:10 NIV). You can be still because he is active, and you can rest because he is busy. To wait, biblically speaking, is not to assume the worst, or worry, or fret, or make demands, or take control. Waiting is not inactivity. Waiting is sustained effort to stay focused on God through prayer and faith. To wait is to 'rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him...not fret' (Psalm 37:7 NKJV). God is the Great Physician. You are in his waiting room. He knows what ails you better than you do, and he has a prescription to fix it. So trust him, and wait.

Lishman: My testimony from being an atheist to a Born Again Christian.

Most of my life I never believed and thought it was all a big fairy tale, a Christian friend gave me a very small booklet ( a tract ) it was titled " How to recieve the gift of the Holy Spirit"...So one morning I got out of bed and got down on my knees after reading the booklet and thought Oh well I have nothing to lose , so said what the booklet said and it went like this Pray to God that I am a sinner and ask God to forgive me of my sins through Jesus Christ which I did and then the last page said " Now ask God to give you the Holy Spirit "

At that very moment with eyes closed and on my knees, it was like someone pouring pure love electricity downfrom the top of my head, I cried like a baby and said to God , now I have have no more doubts about you and was born again . When I opened my eyes everything looked fresh and clean . It changed my whole life with Real truth, wisdom, awareness and the love of all people
After that God spoke to me in dreams and His word.

twokwiat: Hi Lish~ I accepted you as a friend after the other night in your new room with The_7th_Archangel. I don't think I had a chance to mention her blogs, but they are full of unblemished messages on topics as they relate directly to The Scriptures. It got a little busy in the room trying to keep observing 7th sharing with Kase, and following our chat at the same time. But brother, it was a really good start in meeting up with you. Deborah (7th) and I will be there periodically. Bet on it. God Bless you and your loved ones. Richard
