God-thinking X - Oh That's Right, You Don't Want To Change 6

"Matthew 20:31b
“but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David.”

There is a thousand reasons why you do not cry out when you see Jesus passing us by, but all the reasons for not responding only serve to keep you poor in the things of God.

So many people fall short at that very moment when they could break through into a special union with God, because they are listening to the crowd that says, hold your peace.

Or they are listening to their own hardened heart, that says,
“you’ll embarrass yourself in front of these people.” 
Or “if I cry out for Jesus, they will all know that I am a sinner.”
Or "they will all know that I need something." 
Your in good company, we all occasionally fit the category of needing something from God.

Right here is where God thinking can really help the believer.  God thinking knows that God wants you to be whole and to be whole you will have to allow God to work in you and through you. 
When you are blind, God thinking cries out for sight, to glorify God. 

When you see pride or a self-righteous spirit in yourself, God thinking cries out, break me, Oh Lord, that I might glorify you.

Whatever the need, God thinking cries out early and gets the need filled by God, despite the crowd.

You can never receive from God, what you do not have, unless you are willing to ask, (cry out) not just when it’s convenient, but when it’s inconvenient too.

Matthew 20:32
“ And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do for you?

If you recognize God in your midst and you revealed you insufficiency, (cried out), Jesus the Christ would answer and say, “What will ye that I should do for you?”

Don’t think it unusual that Jesus answers the plea of a contrite heart.  Jesus seeks the call of faith to reveal Himself."
