It’s What You And I Long For

S. O. A. P.

Here’s your 90 second AM devotional!


Matthew 20:34

Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.


Jesus and His disciples were leaving Jericho on their way to Jerusalem when two blind men begged Jesus for mercy. They said, “Please heal us, we want to see.” Jesus was moved with compassion toward them and touched them and they received their sight. It was His compassion for them that drove Him to touch and heal them.


Whether you realize it or not, you and I both long for the “Compassion of Jesus.” Jesus is willing to meet our every need based upon His love and compassion. We think we need healing. We think we need more money. We think we need our relationships fixed. We think we need a better job. The truth is, what we really need is the “Compassion of Jesus” turned in our direction. Throughout Scripture, miracles and good things happened when Jesus was moved with compassion. All it takes is for us to simply call upon Him, like these two blind men did. Jesus can answer a billion prayers at one time. Just call on Him now! The Compassion of Jesus … “It’s What You And I Long For.”


Today, like every other day, I have many needs. But I understand that what I really long for is Your Compassion for me. When I have that, my needs seem to melt away. Amen
