“They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” Then he shouted, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
In Judaism they had been taught by the prophets of old and scribes that the Messiah will be called the Son of David, as he will come from the lineage of David. Here the blind man calls out to Jesus addressing him as the Son of David, in other words he is calling out to Jesus as his Messiah, the saviour!
There is a clear difference between what the crowd saw and WHO the blind person saw. I would argue that even though the eyes of this man was shut physically, his spiritual eye was open because he recognised who Jesus is. We don’t want to be like the people in the crowd because they did not recognise the Lord, they did not understand the time of their visitation when God was moving. Have you ever tried shouting over a crowd? Especially if you are not a person in power or not in the spotlight, shouting from behind is very difficult. But this is what the man is doing here and later on in the testimony we see Jesus has mercy on him and opens his physical eyes. In the same way we should never restrain ourselves from asking Jesus for His mercy. Look through the Word of God - you will see that everyone who went to Jesus, ALWAYS received mercy!
Today RECOGNISE Jesus as your master, as your saviour, as your deliverer and ask Him for mercy! Whatever situation you are in whether good or bad imagine Jesus in it and ask for mercy, and you will receive your breakthrough because it is in God’s nature to be merciful!
MEDITATE/KNOW/IMAGINE CONSTANTLY - Jesus have MERCY on me!
