Jesus Said

by Katherine Kehler

What do you want me to do for you?” Matthew 20:32

Jesus was on his way to Jericho and as usual, there was a crowd following Him.

Two blind men were sitting beside the road and when they heard Jesus was passing, they called out to Him, “Lord have mercy on us.”

Jesus heard them. He stopped and asked them, “What do you want me to do for you?”

We want to see,” they answered.

And Jesus, in pity, touched their eyes. Their eyes were opened and they could see.

When I read that story last week, it seemed the question Jesus asked them, “What do you want me to do for you?” – became a question He was asking me: “What do you want me to do for you?”

Last week, when I faced a problem I couldn’t fix, Jesus asked me, “What do you want me to do for you?” I stopped what I was doing and told Him what I wanted Him to do. And He provided a solution.

Dorothy emailed me one morning and said they were leaving for Bolivia with a ministry team the next day, but the ticket for one member of the team had gone missing. Jesus  question came to my mind and in a reply to her I wrote a prayer:  “Jesus, we want you to find the ticket.” Thirty minutes later, Dorothy emailed and said the ticket was found.

Today and every day, Jesus is saying to you, “What do you want me to do for you?” Are you going to answer Him?

Jesus, thank You for caring about our needs and wants. Thank You for asking us what You can do for us. Thank You for solving our problems. Amen.

    i want Jesus to teach me to walk in faith all days of my life Amen.

  2. Beloved says:

    More often than not, we don’t see our needs, we only see our wants. Jesus wants for us to confirm our needs and to seek Him and want it from Him as the ultimate healer. Good people are used by God, bad people use God.+

  3. Daughter of zion says:

    I want God to change my immigration status. It’s been long overdue and it makes me do the kind of jobs I ought not to do. I have kept my faith in him and he shall not disappoint me. Amen
