“Go and tell John what you see and hear: the blind receive their sight and the lame walk, lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear, and the dead are raised up, and the poor have good news preached to them.” (Matthew 11:4b-5, ESV)
Jesus picked up what everybody else threw away.
As powerful as the miraculous is, Jesus’ greater work was to take people in bondage to another’s assessment, and free them into their divine purpose. “The blind, the lame, and the leprous” were not just designations of illness and disease, but pronouncements of dysfunction and worthlessness. They were lies defining a person’s limitations rather than opportunities of transformation and testimony.
Encountering Jesus leads one to discovering more than relief from life’s issues. You become better than healed. You are made brand new! You become something you could not see before you met Christ. The possibilities muted by short-comings, become launching points into the unimaginable.
Would you believe, TODAY, that by one Word from Christ, you could be freer than you were yesterday? That, Jesus could break-off the darkness clouding your vision, and grant you access into the realm of His possibilities. Dare to trust that Jesus’ voice can be louder than the voices of your limitations.
Believe Him, and all things will be made brand new.
