TOPIC: WHEN HE TAKES HIS TIME – Written by Bishop Dr Chris Kwakpovwe
BASIC SCRIPTURES: MARK 8: 22-26; ISAIAH 28:16
Mark 8:22-26 – King James Version
22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.
23 And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.
24 And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
25 After that he put his hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.
26 And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town.

Remember that in 2 Kings 4:35, the dead child sneezed seven times, before opening his eyes! As a Pharmacist, I know that these are the first acts of restored respiration, and they are the successive steps of signs of restoration back to life. God is almighty and miracles were, for the most part performed instantaneously; He can do ALL THINGS but sometimes also, His miracles and manifestations are done in phases! Just like in the case of 1Kings 18:44-45 where ELIJAH had to pray and wait for the 7th time before the MIRACLE RAIN CAME! Sometimes, God’s miracles are done progressively towards completion. That was also the story of the blind man in today’s first scripture. The man in today’s first scripture said: “I see men as trees, walking.” Can you imagine that? THE HEALING WAS NOT INSTANT even though it was the ALMIGHTY JESUS WHO PRAYED FOR HIM! Then Vs. 25 says: “After that, He put His hands again upon his eyes, and made him look up: and he was restored, and saw every man clearly.” So I repeat as I am led for emphasis: The healing was not instant and fast even though Jesus Christ had the FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD DWELLING IN HIM BODILY! He is the unchanging Changer and the FINGER that never FAILS! Yet, He did not heal the man AT ONCE! The man first saw men as trees, before seeing men clearly! No matter how 2020 has been always remember that God is not a man that He should lie! God’s delays are for a higher purpose that your eyes may not see! Note that before the miracle was completed, He made the man to LOOK UP (see the underlined above)! Wow! His PROCESSES ARE FOR YOUR FINAL PROMISED LAND STORY! The Lord could have healed him with a word, but He wished to save the soul as well as the body! He made Him to LOOK UP instead of looking at men! So, when He takes His time, it’s because He has His GREATER PLAN! Hold on and hold out! ODM November 2020 Day 2
