In Mark 10:46-52, the Bible states that as Jesus was passing through Jericho, a blind man named Barthmaeus was sitting by the roadside begging, but when he heard that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by, he shouted at the top of his voice, "Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me"

The large crowd present rebuked him, telling him to be quiet but he shouted the more. When Jesus heard his pleas, He called him and then asked a very important question, "what do you want me to do for you? "

The blind man responded, "I want to see" and immediately he regained his eyesight. From the motivation perspective, I wish to draw three vital lessons from this miracle:

1. Success or breakthroughs in your life begins with making a definite decision of what you want in life(i.e. I want to see).

2. Take a leap of faith: The moment you decide to change your circumstances, the opposition will be intense. Most people close to you may break their vocal cords as they shout against your idea, providing a thousand and one reasons why it will not work. But the saving grace is to trust your instincts and proceed boldly with your plan

3. Your life is in your hands: The state of your life will only change if you decide that it must change. If the blind man had continued sitting down and not taken the opportunity to shout, his status (read blindness) would not have changed.

Likewise, we need to be alive to opportunities that we have, shout at them,grasp them and use them to create a miracle of deliverance and prosperity in our lives.
