The Impact of Faith and Action - TD Jakes Daily Devotion December-16-2023

TD Jakes (December-16-2023) Daily Devotion: The Impact of Faith and Action. 

Bible Quote: "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." - Proverbs 18:21

The narrative of Blind Bartimaeus and the concept of disruptive innovation converge to illustrate a profound spiritual truth: the transformative power of faith and action.

Just as disruptive innovation signifies a game-changing moment in business, the act of Bartimaeus calling out to Jesus represents a pivotal moment of change in his life. His cry, a seemingly small action, had a massive impact, altering his reality from darkness to light.

This story also highlights the interconnectedness of seemingly unrelated elements - in this case, the mouth and the eyes. 

Bartimaeus’s vocal expression of faith triggered a miraculous change in his physical condition. It demonstrates that our words and faith can have a powerful impact beyond what we can perceive or understand.

Jesus' response to Bartimaeus, crediting his faith as the catalyst for his healing, underscores the importance of seizing the moment. 

It's a reminder that opportunities for transformation and breakthrough often hinge on our willingness to act, to speak out, to believe, despite our current circumstances or limitations.

This account also speaks to the illusion of second chances and the critical nature of recognizing and seizing the moment. 

The contrast between the disciples, who were physically close to Jesus but spiritually distant, and Bartimaeus, who was physically distant but spiritually attuned, is striking. 

It challenges us to be sensitive to the opportunities that God presents to us, understanding that some moments are unique and irreplaceable.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, grant us the wisdom to recognize the moments You place before us and the courage to act on them. 

Help us to understand the power of our faith and words, and to use them to bring about change in our lives and in the world around us. 

Teach us to seize the opportunities You provide, knowing that each moment is a gift from You. 

May we be alert and responsive to Your calling, making the most of every opportunity for Your glory. Amen.
