Are you lame or blind?
John 11:22 - But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee.
In 2 Samuel 5:6-8 when David set his headquarters of Zion (fortified city - spiritual level where a person is totally protected like Jesus was) he faced problems from the lame and the blind so he gave orders to kill them.
I asked myself why only lame and blind? Why not any other disability, where they not there? Then I was made to understand these are the worst disability that prevents us like it did to David from dwelling in Zion.
We are blind when we have faith without understanding the truth. Blind faith is not an asset but a liability that disables us from growing. So have faith with understanding, pursue the knowledge and understanding of the Word.
Even if we have faith with understanding but if we lack the will to do it we are considered lame. You may not have the strength, do not worry the Lord will help you but at least have the foot which the Lord can strengthen.
So ask your self if you are not dwelling in Zion or all your prayers are not getting answered, which of these problems do you need to address your blindness or your lameness?
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, help me to overcome my blindness and my lameness so that I can dwell in Zion. By your Spirit strengthen me and bring me to light. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
2 Samuel 5:6-9
6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem against the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land, who spoke to David, saying, "You shall not come in here; but the blind and the lame will repel you," thinking, "David cannot come in here."
7 Nevertheless David took the stronghold of Zion (that is, the City of David).
8 Now David said on that day, "Whoever climbs up by way of the water shaft and defeats the Jebusites (the lame and the blind, who are hated by David's soul), he shall be chief and captain." Therefore they say, "The blind and the lame shall not come into the house."
9 Then David dwelt in the stronghold, and called it the City of David. And David built all around from the Millo and inward.
