Will You Follow Him?

Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.

 (Matthew 20:34 NLT)

After having their request granted, these formerly blind men could have chosen to go their own way, but instead they followed Jesus. It’s sad how after having their prayers answered, many people walk away from God. Oftentimes, God tests the genuineness of our devotion to Him. Will we continue to cling to Him or let go once we get what we want? If He has granted you your heart’s desire, do what the blind men did–follow Him!

Getting what we want should motivate us to follow Jesus.
