“A blind man was sitting by the roadside begging” Luke 18:35b
SINCERELY, if you Lack Provision, ask YOURSELF the Question of Vision.
Vision is what attracts provision. Provision is an advance allowance given to you to fulfil your vision. Therefore, when you lack anything, it means you lack vision for something.
For blind Bartimaeus, his lack of provision, and resultant begging profession was because he lost his vision. But at the peak of his perilous experiences from the hands of robbers on Jericho’s highway, he CRIED OUT for VISION. “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:38
The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. THOUGH IT COST ALL YOU HAVE, get understanding –get CLEAR VISION; insight.
See, Dear friend, God created you with a unique vision, do all you can to lay hold of it –it is your life!
You don’t have to grope along the Wall Street of life in darkness of sight; it is not only disadvantageous to your well-being, but it is an act of wickedness by you, and to you.
Like the blind we grope along the wall, feeling our way like people without eyes. At midday we stumble as if it were twilight; among the strong, we are like the dead.
The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know over what they stumble.
Vision is what evinces the future, and attracts its realities into material possibilities and tangible manifestation in your life. Clear vision clears the way to success –vision engenders direction to your destiny.
Poverty is the direct outcome of being blind; and begging is an immediate consequence of being visionless.
A life without vision is a beggarly life – that which will only and always depend on people with vision.
If you love sleep, you will end in poverty. Keep your eyes open – keep your Vision alive, and there will be plenty to eat!
Lack of vision is a doorway to abject POVERTY which gradually matures into hopeless desperation. Consequently, begging becomes the only means for the visionless to survive by the roadside to destiny.
Hence, the immediate end of a visionless life is a shipwreck –being stranded on the roadside of life, and the only means now there remains for survival is begging.
Consequently, a blind man cannot do anything or go anywhere without help, and people blind of vision have little or no means of livelihood but to beg; begging becomes their only option for survival, because they are desperate and highly vulnerable.
The act of begging is a desperate measure that shows that you are visionless. When you begin to beg to survive; when you continue to beg to live; when you beg to feed. What it simple means is that you are blind. What it EMPHATICALLY mean is that your Sight of Vision is GONE.
A blind man is a desperate man; a visionless man is full of agitation; a man without sight is full of perspiration.
Check your life; does it look like you always depend on people’s help for daily survival – I mean something like pleading to live? It simply means you are Visionless!
Begging pegs your destiny, and pleading bleeds away your dignity.
Therefore, if you have not realised or activated your vision in life, you are on the fast-lane to poverty. A man that has no vision lacks everything and beg for many things. Whereas, a man that has vision, has everything and gives for many things.
God is willing to provide and restore your vision, so that you can become resourceful and be provisioned to help men.
But, you must realise that, what you need is to be armed with vision and not beg for arms – helps from men.
Therefore, quit begging for arms, cry out to regain thy sight.
May the Lord restore your vision in Jesus Name!
