Remember when Jesus heals the blind man but it takes two attempts? For some strange reason, that is blessing me big time. Even Jesus needed two attempts. I find tremendous encouragement in that. And I think there are a few lessons to be learned.
I think many of us give up after our first attempt so we forfeit the miracle. Keep praying for the miracle. Give God a chance! I also think some of us are satisfied with a partial miracle. Don’t settle for half a miracle. Keep believing God for the whole thing! Finally, some miracles happen in stages. It doesn’t happen all the way right away.
Mark 8:25 says: “Then Jesus laid hands on his eyes again.” The operative word is “again.” Is there something you need to pray for again?
