Streams of Joy Daily Devotional 14 February 2024 || Pastor Jerry Eze

PASTOR JERRY EZE DAILY DEVOTIONAL WEDNESDAY 14TH FEBRUARY 2024

You are reading Today’s Streams of Joy Daily Devotional for 14th February 2024 written by Pastor Jerry Eze.

TOPIC: A DIVINE EVIDENCE

SCRIPTURE: “46. And they came to Jericho: and as he went out of Jericho with his disciples and a great number of people, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the highway side begging. 47. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out, and say, Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me.” (Mark 10: 46-47)

That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.

Our Focal Scripture captures the fact that whilst Jesus left Jericho, He was followed by His disciples and a great multitude of people. Notice that it was blind Bartimaeus who was singled out and given a miracle. These multitudes followed Jesus, but it didn’t seem that they got Him to do anything meaningful in their lives. They were content to follow the Lord without evidence. They were content to follow the Lord without results.

Friend, in 2024, I am aware that it is okay to follow the Lord, but dare to be like Bartimaeus who demanded for his own life to be turned around. Dare to be that one whose life is full of evidence of the goodness of God. Be that man whose life puts the goodness and the power of God on display. Be that man who follows the Lord with evidence to show that He is good. Be that one who places a demand on the power of God.

The multitudes who followed Jesus eventually became witnesses of the miracle of blind Bartimaeus. They were content to follow without evidence, and they became witnesses of the miracle of the one who dared to follow with evidence. If you choose to follow the Lord without ever placing a demand for the grace and power in Him, you may end up being a spectator in the miracle of those who have chosen to follow with evidence.

Make a commitment in 2024, to be that one who will make demands on the power of God. Be the example of one who God has helped. Demand to move from being a mere spectator of the works of God, to being a partaker. Press into Jesus and demand for a turnaround that will cause multitudes to be drawn to Him. Place a demand on the grace of God and demand for results therefrom. Dare to be that one that will be singled out for miracles.

This year, refuse to be that follower of Jesus whose life will not put the works of God on display. It’s okay to follow Jesus, but it is much better to follow Him as an evidence of the power and mercy of God.

Psalm 65: 5 says: “By terrible things in righteousness wilt thou answer us, O God of our salvation; who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth, and of them that are afar off upon the sea:”

Declare With Me: My life will demonstrate the power and grace of God, in Jesus’ name!
