If you are disappointed with the progress in the spiritual side of your life, could it be that you are short-changing yourself in the area of goal setting?

A few months ago, I re-read the following verse and it has become very meaningful to me.  It is from the story of a blind man who heard that Jesus was walking through the road of his town.  He began calling out repeatedly to Jesus for mercy.  Jesus came to him and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?”  The blind man said, Lord, I want to see! (Lk.18:41) The man was instantly healed of blindness.

We have previously discussed that Jesus is the visual representation to us of the heart of Father God.  In simpler terms, a main purpose of Jesus’ life was to reveal to us God’s character, heart, and nature.  I want to challenge you today to use the question that Jesus’ asked the blind man as a spring board for you to set new spiritual goals for your life.  Scripture does say that we need to ask to receive.  However, in this instance, Jesus asked the question.  Now visualize yourself with Jesus asking you this question about your life today, and put your name in the blank, “What do you want Me to do for you, _____?”  It is a great challenge!


Build your level of confidence in prayer  by using promises of God from Scripture to spur your imagination as to how to answer Jesus’ question to you about your own life.

In Part 2 of this post, I have made a list of several Scriptures that I used to answer that question in my own life.  I challenge you to leave behind any spiritual humdrum and disappointment from a lack of spiritual goal setting and make use of this list to sculpt your own set of answers to Jesus’ question.
