According To Your Faith

Sunday October 3, 2010

In Matt. 9:27-30 Jesus healed the blind men because they cried out to Him in faith, and Jesus said that it would be done to them according to their faith. In Mark 9:14-27 a man brought his son to Jesus after His disciples couldn’t heal him, and Jesus told the father that if he could believe, all things are possible. The father told Him he could believe, but asked Jesus to help his unbelief. He delivered the child of a deaf and dumb spirit, and when asked why the disciples couldn’t cast it out, Jesus said, “This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” Was He talking about this kind of demon? No, He was talking about that kind of unbelief. In Mark 10:46-52 when blind Bartimaeus was healed by Jesus, he had to leave behind his beggar’s clothes. Be specific when you ask God for something, and don’t quit believing for your miracle. Get your faith from the Word. (Find out the difference between unbelief and doubt.)
