Matthew 9:29 – If You Could Only Believe!

Matthew 9:29-Then He (Jesus) touched their eyes and said, according to your faith be it unto you.

If we could only believe in the power of faith! If you could only believe, you would be made whole. If you could only believe that all things are possible to them that believe.

There is an old adage that goes like this: “What you see is what you get!” As I grew older and wiser, I have learned that those words are not true. The truth is “What you believe is what you RECEIVE!” Our text on today makes this very clear. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.

Scripture declares that according to your faith be it unto you. In other words, you can have what you believe you can have. It’s all about your faith; about what you believe. I have come to find out that believing God is my only option, especially  in a world where wrong has become right and right has become wrong.

There is a battle that’s raging in the world and in the minds of people everywhere, including some in the Church. A battle that has been waged by the enemy,  who is fighting for the power of  your “Faith.”  He is fighting to make you believe what you see and not what God’s Word says.  “IF YOU COULD ONLY BELIEVE.”  If you could only believe by faith that with God all things are possible to them that believe.

What do you believe about believing? In this text, we find Jesus doing what he always does, healing, helping, comforting , having compassion and saving souls.  

There were two blind men who came to Jesus for help. Jesus could have just touched them or simply  speak the word and they could have been healed of their blindness. But instead, He asked them the question, “Do you believe I can do this?”  Jesus is asking you and I the same question on today,  “Do we  believe He can do this?” Whatever our “this ” is on today, do we believe that Jesus is able to fix it? Do we believe that???

I believe that Jesus was making a point here by saying ‘according to your faith be it unto you.” The point is doubt and faith can not operate at the same time. Either we believe and receive all that God has for us or we can doubt and miss out on God’s best for our lives. Doubt produces nothing.  Faith produces the impossible!

Hebrews 11:6  And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

There are times when we all allow satan to wreck havoc in our lives and mind because of unbelief. On today, God has given us an option to chaos and unbelief or to choose  to belive God.  Believing that which we hope for is already done is the key.  Mark 11:24 declares on today-    Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

                                                                              ”IF WE COULD ONLY BELIEVE!”

Where do you stand on today? In faith or in doubt? IF YOU COULD ONLY BELIEVE!!

Ponder: What is it that you are in need of at this very moment that you have yet to receive? Are you in doubt about it? Do you believe God can and is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all you could ask or think? Do you belive that???? 

IF YOU COULD ONLY BELIEVE! Matthew 9:29 declares- According to your faith, be it unto you!!!
