Matthew 9:27-28 And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us. (28) 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.
So many times we ask the Lord for something and then go on our way never really expecting Him to grant it. They had a specific need just as we have many specific needs. Many times I have suffered through some malady simply because I did not have enough faith to ask Jesus to heal me or remove the difficulty.
You may have a spiritual problem or a problem in your personal life that you want to pray about and ask God to take care of. If you were asked point blank if you believe that Jesus is able to handle your problem could you answer, "Yes, Lord." and really mean it?
In the next few devotionals we will look at what faith can do in the believer's life. Remember it is not great faith that matters. It is faith in a Great God that really counts.
