Understanding the Wonders of Faith (Part 2)
And without faith it is impossible to please God. .." (Heb.11:15 ► ASV)
With Jesus joy I welcome you to the third week of February 2021.
Last week we began a series titled: Understanding the Wonders of Faith and in Part 1 of the series, using the example of the woman with the issue of blood (Matthew 9:20-22), we established that faith is a spiritual force that triggers the release of signs and wonders. Continuing with the series this week, I will like to begin by saying that faith is a key ingredient in the fulfillment of prophecies.
According to Kegan Paulet et al(1902), faith is the organ for receiving everything. It is the conducting link between man's emptiness and God's fullness, the bucket let down into the fountain of God’s grace, without which the man could never draw water of life from the wells of salvation. The above assertions were proven in Matt. 9:27-31 when Jesus demonstrated His authority and power over darkness.
In the preceding passages, Jesus had performed some great miracles. He had healed a woman who had bled internally for twelve years, raised Jairus's daughter from dead, opened the eyes of two blind men and cast a demon out of a man who had previously been unable to speak. A part of these great miracles was that the hemorrhaging woman had touched Him. Then Jesus touched a dead girl and she came back to life.
In Matt. 9:27-31, Jesus was leaving Jairus's house in Capernaum when two blind men followed Him. They begged Jesus for mercy (verse 27) "Have mercy on us, Son of David!" They were seeking deliverance from their great affliction. These blind men pursued Jesus (verse 28) until they could reach him. They demonstrated great persistence in their pursuit of Jesus. Inside the house, Jesus said to them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" The men respond with the proper confession and their reply demonstrated their faith. They said, "Yes, Lord." Then He touched their eyes, saying, "Be it done to you according to your faith." When Jesus touched the blind men with His hand and they touched Him with their faith, the Bible records that "their eyes were opened".
The faith of the two blind men was not only evident by what they said, it was equally evident by what they did. As I sign off this week, you may not need to receive healing, but you may be facing some other difficulty in which you could apply faith in God's Word. Today I want to encourage you to imitate the faith of the two blind men. As you persistently express your faith in God and His word, I have it on good authority that your faith will bring you the miracle you need!
