Do You Have The Faith
“Do you believe that I am able to do this?” Yes Lord, they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith will it be done to you!” and their sight was restored.”
If we have faith in God, anything that we wish for can be made to come true as long as it is in God’s will and plan for our lives. Jesus gives us so many examples in the Bible of things that came to pass because people had enough faith that they would come to pass. One of the more compelling examples is shown in the scripture above, about the two blind men who heard that Jesus was passing by, and faith began to build in their hearts. They had faith that Jesus could open their eyes and let them see, and they cried out to Jesus to heal them. Jesus heard their cries and stopped near them, and asked them this question in the scripture above. Jesus wanted to know if they had faith that he could heal them, and they replied with confidence that they had faith that he could heal them, and let them see, and he healed them. This is one of the better examples where if we have the faith we can make things happen to us. Another example of the demonstration of faith is shown in Matthew 9:20 “Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed. Jesus turned and saw her. Take heart, daughter, he said, your faith has healed you. And the woman was healed from that moment.” We need to have this kind of faith and trust in Jesus to hear us and answer our prayers. We need to use this kind of faith to be able to let go of the hurt and pain of our past, and be willing to have faith in Jesus Christ, and he will hear us and touch our lives. Jesus gives us another example of what faith can do as he tells us in Matthew 17:20 “He replied, Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to there and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” When we begin to trust in Jesus, and begin obeying his commands and doing his will for our lives, and living a righteous life things will begin to happen in our lives. Romans 3:22 “This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.” When we ask Jesus into our hearts and begin to put our faith and trust in him for everything, this is the time that our lives will change, and he will take control of our lives. God can give us peace and joy in our lives that we have never experienced before. All he wants us to do is to come to him and repent of our sins, and trust in him for everything.
