What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.” -Mark 10:51-52

In Mark 10:46-52 we find Jesus healing a blind man.

In Jesus asking this man what he wanted Jesus to do for him he confidently confirmed “I want to see.”

What if there were opportunities where Jesus wanted to do something for us, but we didn’t have this confidence? Where He came to us and asked “What do you want me to do?” and we shrugged our shoulders or said “I’m not sure there’s much of anything you can do.”

Take a lesson from this blind man and know that Jesus wants to do great things for us, but sometimes we have to ask.
