The Sure Mercies of David! Cry Out to Jesus!

The Sure Mercies of David Luke 18: 38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me. 39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me. Isa 55:3 Incline your ear, […]

The Sure Mercies of David

I feel impressed to share again the famous story of a blind man named Bartimaeus:

bartimaeus

We read of it hear in Luke chapter 18, but I need to amplify this verse:

Luke 18: 38 And he cried, saying, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

39 And they which went before rebuked him, that he should hold his peace: but he cried so much the more, Thou Son of David, have mercy on me.

This is no ordinary story, it is one of deep faith, for though Bartimaeus was blind with his earthly eyes, He ‘saw’ clearly with the eye of faith. He knew Jesus would stop, He knew Jesus would heal, for He understood Jesus, who He was, and what He would do. Why?

Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Bartimaeus had heard clearly this word from the Jewish writings, and He believed it:

Isa 55:3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.

He knew a prophet had arisen in the land, and that God was with Him!

Surely he knew the stories of Moses, Elijah, Elisha, and of the mighty miracles God had wrought through them, and he knew that God could not lie, and that He had made a covenant with his servant David, a covenant of mercy, open to all who would see and understand the love of God.

He surely had also heard of the mighty testimonies of how the lame walked, the deaf heard, the sick were healed through the touch of this man – Jesus of Nazareth.

This is the story of Blind Bartimaeus, crying out to Jesus as He walked by. This is a sermon I can preach, with passion and power. How Jesus is walking by….

Yet, what was interesting, is what he prayed, ‘Son of David, have mercy upon me!

He lifted up the promise of God, in passion, and anguish of soul, recognizing his moment of eternal destiny, and suddenly, the promise, breathed life into his sightless eyes, for God is never I was, or I will be: His name is I AM!

And NOW Faith is!

Are you desperate enough to cry out to Jesus tonight?

The Blessing of Brokeness….

The Blessing of Brokeness

Ps 6:1 ¶ «To the chief Musician on Neginoth upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.» O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

2 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak: O LORD, heal me; for my bones are vexed.

3 My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O LORD, how long?

4 Return, O LORD, deliver my soul: oh save me for thy mercies’ sake.

5 For in death there is no remembrance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?

6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

7 Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies.

 

Here we David, weary in well doing, convicted of his sin, with death looming over him. He is surrounded by enemies both natural and spiritual, and he is overwhelmed with grief. He falls upon his face, and his heart breaks before a Holy God, and suddenly, He is forgiven, restored, and rises up from this place of prayer in confidence, authority, and assurance that God has acted upon his behalf.

 

Shattered, traumatized, overwhelmed, weak is where this psalm starts. The end of self, the place of total abandonment to God, where unless God comes through, he is finished, his life has ended.

 

8 ¶ Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; for the LORD hath heard the voice of my weeping.

9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

 

Not a popular message for us Word of Faith folks. Old timers used to call this place, the place of ‘praying through’. Brother Hagin used to call it the place of praying in the Spirit until he found that ‘note of victory’ in his heart.

 

He still gives grace to the humble, and though 2Ti 2:13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

 

And He cannot lie, what He has promised, must surely come to pass, just need to encourage ourselves in the Word, and build ourselves back up in our most holy faith.

 

Break before Him. Give Him your weariness, frustration, sin, and pain. You will touch heaven, and you will be heard, and God will receive your prayer, and there will be a glorious echo from heaven, where the God of all thunder, responds in power, and brings to pass what you cannot.
