Jesus has always asked questions. Really good ones, such as:
And then, there is this story in Matthew 9:
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed Him, shouting, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!”
When He entered the house, the blind men approached Him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?”
“Yes, Lord,” they answered Him.
Then He touched their eyes, saying, “Let it be done for you according to your faith!”
Today, he is asking me…
Do you believe that:
I can heal your heart?
I will fulfill my promises?
I can bring beauty from these ashes?
I will redeem your mistakes?
Do you believe that I can do this without your help? Even in spite of you?
Do you believe that I will never let you go?
Good questions. Of course, I want my answer to be a wholehearted, “Yes, Lord.” But some days, I live like I don’t believe him.
I’m living like I’m still blind.
I’m lying on my mat saying I want to be well.
And he’s calling me out on it.
“Do you believe that I can do this? Then, start living like you believe it. Walk in that faith. Pick up your mat and walk.”
Is Jesus calling you out on anything today?
