These are the words of
Jesus Christ to the deaf and mute man.
Throughout the Holy Bible we come across several instances where God
opened mighty ways and worked miracles for His own people.
The Lord opened a way
for the Israelites who were pursued by the Egyptians by dividing the Red Sea. He
instructed Moses to lift the rod and to stretch out his hand over the sea
(Exodus 14:16). It was a blessing for
His people whereas it was a severe punishment for the enemy.
When the Israelites
were travelling through the Wilderness of Sin they camped in Rephidim where
there was no water for the people to drink (Exodus 17:1 – 7). Moses cried out to the LORD and the LORD
said, “Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock in Horeb; and you
shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it that the people may
In Joshua 3:13 we see
how God opened the Jordan
for the Israelites. When the feet of the
priests who bear the ark of the LORD, the Lord of all the earth, rested in the
waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan was cut off.
In my life, I have gone
through several situations where the Lord Jesus Christ himself has sent His
angel down for me to overcome my severe problems. It is the same angel we come across in Exodus
23:20, “Behold, I send an Angel before you to keep you in the way and to
bring you into the place which I have prepared.” I know for sure that the same Jesus
Christ is there for you too. When I come
across such a situation I always remember the cry of blind Bartimaeus which
stopped Jesus (Mark 10:46).
