I Cast Myself On The Mercy Of The Lord

The story of blind Bartimaeus holds the secrets in our efforts to get to Jesus.

Pastor Ray opens the broadcast today with the story of Blind Bartimaeus. We must cast ourselves on the mercy of the Lord Jesus, lest we perish. We can only get Jesus attention through the loud cries of our hearts. Is your heart desperate for the mercy of Jesus?

We see that Bartimaeus was eager for Jesus to come, so the desperation is one of the keys to get to Jesus. We also see his poverty of spirit, another requisite of getting to Jesus. Finally, he was determined to get to Jesus and that’s the only way that we will as well.

To cast one’s self on is to yield or submit one’s self unreservedly to, as to the mercy of another.
