Then he laid hands on the man’s eyes a second time
and he saw clearly;
his sight was restored and
he could see everything distinctly.”
– Mark 8 : 22 – 26

“I want it now” is a modern cliché . Wanting our wanting now, though, doesn’t always work with God. He has a plan, which even if it isn’t ours, is a plan forour greater good — even if it isn’t our plan. The blind man’s sight wasn’t healed instantly, but gradually. How we want to be holy now and never return to the valley of filth and pride! Yet we seem to fall again and again. Holiness is always a work in progress, but that doesn’t faze Jesus. He knows the power his grace can work in our lives. Simply, turn over your difficulties over to him and keep trying.
Our failures teach us to be humble, and this can only bring us closer to God.
