Bartimaeus’ persistent faith created a door through which he could walk into a transformed life. While on this side of the door he could see God’s vision for him and for the world on the other side of the door. And it was that vision that enabled him to persist. That vision infused him with energy and power, and sustained him in the face of discouragement and negativity, until he could walk through the door.
