Throughout Matthew 9, we find a central theme of God’s faithfulness to us and our faithful response to Him.
“Some men brought to him a paralyzed man, lying on a mat. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, ‘Take heart, son; your sins are forgiven.’” (Matthew 9:2 NIV)
No matter what age or stage your children are, your faith still has a place in their lives.
As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him. While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. (Matthew 9:9-10 NIV)
God is not turned off by my messy life. He wants to come in and clean up the mess for me.
Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment. (Matthew 9:22 NIV)
When all else seems hopeless we can take heart knowing that our God is faithful. He may not reveal the answers when and how we think, but He never lets us down.
Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29 NIV)
God continues to do the impossible in the lives of those He loves, so whatever you ask for, believe that He can do it.
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9:36 NIV)
Jesus, the Shepherd of your soul, longs to guide, protect and renew you.
