Matthew 20:31 – The multitude rebuked them, telling them that they should be quiet, but they cried out even more, "Lord, have mercy on us, you son of David!"
The ‘power of the crowd’ is evident here. It is not one person who rebukes the blind men, it is the ‘multitude’.
There are times when we feel like we can’t do what we know God is asking us to do – and we fear ‘the multitude’. What will ‘people’ say? What will ‘they’ think? Who is the multitude? What authority do they have to speak over our life and set the course of our direction?
There were two authorities here – the multitude and Christ. In spite of the resistance, the men appealed to the higher authority and walked away healed!
