      What do you do when you are faced with challenges, tribulations, trials and trouble? What do you do when your situation has been the same for so long, that there seems to be no hope for change?

      "Then the multitude warned them that they should be quiet; but they cried out all the more, saying, 'Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!" Matthew 20:31

      A multitude of people were following Jesus, out of Jericho. There were two blind men sitting on the side of the road and they heard that Jesus was passing by. They began to cry out for Jesus to help them. They were tired of just sitting by the road. They were tired of staying in the same situation. They were ready for a change; ready to see what they had never seen before. They decided that enough is enough. The crowd was telling the blind men to be quiet. They wanted them to keep their problems to themselves. But the blind men began to cry out louder. When you want a breakthrough; when you need a change, you can't be afraid to cry out to the Lord. You can't let others shut you down; you can't let others shut you up. Tell those people, 'I'll cry if I want to!"

      When these blind men continued to cry out more to Jesus, He asked them what He could do for them. The men told Jesus that they wanted their eyes opened!" Jesus touched their eyes and they were able to see. They had cried out, without holding back! They weren't moved by what others said; but they were motivated by who Jesus was. They received their healing; their deliverance and their miracle.  If they had listened to the people, they would have stayed blind. If they had let the crowd influence them, they would have left the same way they arrived.  Sometimes you have to tell the crowd, "I'll cry if I want to."

      Cry out! Refuse to let anyone stop you from your miracle! Refuse to let Jesus pass you by without getting what you need. Don't stay on the sidelines, wishing that your situation was different. Get up and cry out to the Lord; get up and be bold; get up and get a touch from the Lord. Whatever your struggle; whatever your pain; whatever your trial; whatever your test, don't sit by and watch; get up and shout.

      You can let everyone know...
      "I'll shout if I choose to; and I get up if I have to; I'll jump if I need to; I'll move if I'm told to, and I'll cry if I want to!  Whatever it takes, I'm getting my blessing."

      “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles.” Psalm 34:17
