Believe in Jesus
Do you believe?
What an interesting question, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do this?’. No matter what you need, the question is, do you have faith in Jesus?
Matthew 9:27-31 Jesus left that place and walked along the road. Two blind men followed him. They shouted: Have mercy on us, Son of David!
28 He went into a nearby house. The blind men followed him. Jesus asked them: Do you believe that I can heal you? They said: Yes Lord. 29 He touched their eyes. Let it be done, he said, according to your faith.
30 Their eyes were opened. Jesus strictly warned them: Do not let anyone know about this. 31 They spread the news about Jesus all over that part of the country. (NSB)
Two blind men who follow Jesus wanted to see. When asked if they trusted that the Lord could do what they desired, of course, they answered, “yes.” As a result of their faith, they could see. Do you trust the Lord to do what you need?
The outcome depends on faith
Jesus often made it clear that the outcome depends on faith. In Matthew 21:21 He stated, “If you have faith, and do not doubt, you shall…”. Again in Matthew 21:22, He said, “whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.“
We live in trying times. Many of us struggle to make ends meet. Even so, our hope is in Jesus, not people. Whatever you face, remember to believe that Jesus can fix it for you. If you believe, He can/will do…
Finally, don’t be a ‘doubting Thomas’
John 20:29 Jesus said to him, Because you have seen me, you have believed: blessed are those who have not seen, and yet have believed. (RKJNT)
From here on, trust and believe in God. Blessings my friends—♥ Tim.
