This Month's Promise

“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us,...”

- (Galatians 3:13)

Read: Matthew 9: 27-31


“…According to your faith let it be to you.” (Matthew 9:29)

Two blind men; persistently following Jesus; with one accord; to get healed of their blindness. That was the scenario! Despite knowing all these, Jesus asks them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” Another translation says, “Do you believe that I have the power to do this?” They said, “Yes, Lord!” Every one of us has some need or the other and every time we are in need we run to the Lord and give our problems to Him in prayer. But most of the times, we pray in order to ease out our burden or the load of the care, rather than expecting the Lord to really meet our needs.

In other words, we believe that the Lord will hear our prayers. We believe that He will answer our prayers. But our belief does not go beyond this level. Here, in this passage, we are given to understand that we should rather believe on the “POWER” of Jesus to do anything we ask for; His ability to perform miracles. His ability to heal any sickness, however chronic it may be. Only when we believe that He has the power to do something, we will be able to receive the answer in a jiffy. That is what happened to these blind brothers. They received according to their faith – the unshakeable and strong faith on the Power of Jesus!

The Bible says in Ephesians 3:20 that He is able to do exceedingly abundantly … according to the POWER that works in us. That Power should work in us to deliver us. We should believe that Jesus is given this power by His father in heaven. There is exceeding greatness in His Power only to those who believe. (Ephesians 1:19) Today, when you run to your room to kneel down, concentrate on this exceedingly great Power of our Lord. Then you will experience this mighty power in your life today and in all the days to come.

PRAYER: Lord, I believe in that my sincere prayer will bring down Your mighty power. You O Lord, have the power to heal me from all my diseases, to provide my essential needs, and to protect me from the power of sin. I praise and thank You. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
