Do you believe that I am able to do this?
Two blind men trailed Jesus, shouting, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”
“Do you believe I can do this?” Jesus asked.
“Let it be done for you according to your faith,” he said. Or as J.B. Phillips has it: “You have believed and you will not be disappointed.” And their sight was restored.
Spiritual blindness in those with 20/20 physical vision is not uncommon. Jeremiah chided “foolish and senseless people, who have eyes but do not see, who have ears but do not hear” (Jer 5:21).
Jesus even challenged his disciples: “Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear” (Mk 8:18).
Whatever you’re facing, pray for his intervention.
But after Amen add this P.S.: Do I really believe he can do this?
Faith is at its strongest when it
unrelentingly believes what seems impossible.
