Do You Believe He Is Able?

Do you believe that I am able to do this?
                  —Matthew 9:28

Two blind men trailed Jesus, shouting, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”

“Do you believe I can do this?” Jesus asked.

“Yes, Lord.”

“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.
