“And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, “Yes, Lord.” Mt. 9:28-29
Wherever Jesus went nothing around Him remained the same! Whether He entered a room or a city, a house or a stable – He brought change. Possibilities were suddenly realities! Those who suffered from all kinds of diseases were healed, blessings were imparted, fishing nets were filled, storms were calmed, miracles came, mercy was given; and yes, even the dead were raised to life again! Wherever Jesus went He brought LIFE, POWER, BLESSING AND HEALING!
In the above scripture, Jesus entered a house, followed by two blind men, who “came to Him.” Obviously, they were asking for their sight, to which Jesus replied, “Do you believe I am able to do this?” Here they were, standing in the presence of Jesus, who turned and asked them a question! To them, it was the question of a lifetime! Their deepest longing was to have their sight. He said, “Do you believe I am able to do this?” Their reply was simple, “Yes, Lord!” There was no hesitation on their part, no grappling with faith-killing theology – just, “Yes Lord!”
How about you…? Let’s look at the deepest longing of your life for a moment. Are you following Jesus to a place where you can shut the world out and speak directly with Him? These blind men followed Jesus into the house, and they came to Jesus. Coming into the house was the first step toward their healing. Then, coming before Him, they dealt with their doubts and fears. But hearing His voice, the healing tone of His words, they sensed His presence and said, “Yes, Lord.”
You may have some questions too, but let Him ask you, “Do you believe I am able…? Able to forgive your sins? Able to rekindle your marriage? Able to heal your body? Able to give you a new life, a new start, a new way of life? Do you believe I am able to transform the proverbial stable of your life into a place that’s celebrated by angels? Do you believe I am able to do these things?” Sound outlandish? Well… to these two blind men having their eyes opened would have seemed like the most outlandish thing in the world to them, but it happened! They walked away with their sight! and they are no different than you are! If you follow Jesus, nothing remains the same! He said, “Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden… why, so you can keep your burdens? No! He wants to remove them! He wants to remove sickness, problems of all kinds, fears, depression, distractions, confusion, deformities, infirmities or sins… Jesus wants you to come to Him. He may ask you, “Do you believe I am able to do this?
What will your reply be…?
