Matthew Chapter 9 Verse 28-30a
And when He (Jesus) was come into the house, the blind men came to Him and; Jesus saith unto them, “Do you believe I am able to do this?” They said unto Him, “Yea, Lord.” Then He touched their eyes saying, “According to your faith be it unto you.” And their eyes were opened. (KJV)
I have always been drawn to the miracles of the Bible. Perhaps it is because I have witnessed so many modern day miracles in my own life. My heart stopped beating and I *technically* died at age 20. I was given a 10% chance to live. I witnessed my son saved from death 4 separate times. As I was reading tonight from my 1 year Bible plan, I came across this in Matthew Chapter 9. Jesus had already healed Peter’ mother-in-law; two different men with palsy; the woman suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years who touched His cloak; the twelve year old girl who died and He raised from the dead; and the two bind men (and the list continues). Not to mention He calmed the sea! But something struck me. . .
Matthew 9:28-30a tells us, “And when He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus saith unto them, ‘Believe ye that I am able to do this?’ They said unto Him, ‘Yea, Lord.’ Then He touched their eyes saying, ‘According to your faith be it unto you.’ And their eyes were opened.”
Do we believe that God can meet our every need? Do we believe that He can fix our every problem? Do we believe that He can sustain us through every challenge? Do we believe that when there seems no way out of life’s problems, that He can provide a miracle? Do we believe in hope? Do we believe we can be healed? Healed of physical affliction? Emotional hurt? When we petition God in prayer, we need to believe that He is the Way Maker. And in those times when we are not even bold enough to pray for our needs, we need to know that God Can Do Anything! He already knows our needs before we ask (Matthew 6:8). In fact, He knows our needs better than we do. If you don’t believe, pray that God lifts your unbelief, so the enemy has no foothold in your life!
Lord, we ask that you give us the courage to put our FULL trust in You without holding ANYTHING back. Remove any doubt that keeps us from You. Give us courage! Speak to our hearts and make Your Will known unto us. Amen.
