What do you want?-1
Mark 10:51 “And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight”
I once heard Mike Murdock gave an illustration on been specific in the place of prayer. He said somebody approached him saying he want to be richer than he presently is. He asked the man how rich does he want to be but he kept saying he just want more money. So Mike Murdock dipped his hand into his pocket and gave the man a cent.
The man received the money wondering what to do with it. Murdock said; “That is more money”. He then told Murdock that this is not the type of money he want. If you don’t know the specifics of what you want heaven won’t be able to help you.
Many people approach the place of prayer not sure of what they want, they just want God to answer them anyhow. Some believes that God already knows what they want and so they don’t see reasons why they should tell Him again.
Jesus knew that Bartimaeus was blind but he still asked what he wanted. Someone humourously said the man might actually need money or a new cloth. But why did Jesus ask him to be specific?
Numbers 14:28 “Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:”
Numbers 14:28 “Now give them this answer: ‘I swear that as surely as I live, I will do to you just what you have asked. I, the LORD, have spoken.” (GNB)
There is a spiritual law of faith and prayers called the Law of Specificity. With this law, God promised to do the specific thing we say to Him and He remains committed to it. So, it’s not just enough to make demands from heaven, you must know what you want.
Be specific in the place of prayer, release your faith for what you want. I’ve discovered that, as a pastor many people don’t know what they want.
