The blind beggar Bartimaeus was determined to get help from Jesus. Possibly, he had tried to get Jesus’ attention in the past but could not get close enough. Or perhaps his faith was being tested. On this day, Bartimaeus placed himself close to where Jesus would pass by. Verses 47-48 show the earnestness of his request for Jesus' help. He cried out, and when others tried to quiet him, "He cried the more, a great deal."
What are we struggling with today that we would like for Jesus to heal? Is it anxiety, a physical affliction, a strained relationship, a lack of spiritual eyesight, or depression? Whatever it is, we can learn from Bartimaeus. He went where he KNEW he would find Jesus. He cried out for help (no doubt, multiple times). He did not let the opinions and criticisms of others stop him, but "He cried the more."
Can you imagine Bartimaeus' joy when he heard these words: "Be of good comfort, rise; he calleth thee"? What a blessing to know the Lord is calling for me and you, saying: "Come unto Me. Tell Me what you need. Don’t let others stop you. I am waiting for you.”
