Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29 NIV)
In today’s story in Matthew 9:27-31, we meet two blind men. The men followed Jesus, begging Him to have mercy on them. The first question Jesus asked was, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
Here’s a question for you too. What have you been asking God for, my friend?
Is it health for a sick loved one?
Restoration for a broken relationship?
A way out of an impossible financial situation?
For your children to know and love God?
Healing in your heart?
Now let me ask you, do you believe that God is able to do it?
Let’s go back to the two blind men. Up until then, we know of no one whose sight was restored just by following someone around and begging for mercy. Still, they believed that Jesus could do the impossible.
It wasn’t their courage or even their determination that healed them. The Bible tells us that
it was done according to their faith.
Now, Mama, I know there are times God seems silent and slow in answering our prayers, and we wonder if it’s because of our lack of faith. Be encouraged today that God has not forgotten you. Keep your faith strong and know that He works all things out for good.
God continues to do the impossible in the lives of those He loves. And one thing is sure, without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). So, hold on to your faith, dear sister. Whatever you ask for, believe that God can do it.
