You Can Go as Far As You Believe

January 27, 2012

Matthew 9:27-30, KJV:

And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed Him, crying and saying, ‘Thou son of David, have mercy on us’. And when He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus saith unto them ‘Believe ye that I am able to do this?’ They said unto Him ‘Yea, Lord’.  Then touched He their eyes, saying, ‘According unto your faith be it unto you.’  And their eyes were opened…

Here we see two blind men do extraordinary things. First, they walked with Jesus, despite their blindness.  Secondly, they enter a building and find Him, again in spite of their blindness.  They call out to Him, and they hear Him.  They sit next to Him and they are touched by HIm.  But in all of this, they are still blind men.

Everyone who lives for God does so against incredible odds.  First of all, we are born in sin.  Then we live in a culture baptized in sin.  Iniquity and ungodliness permeate this world and to some degree affect every person every day.  If you live for God it will be at the cost of denying your flesh and sacrificing your will.  At times it will be as difficult as blind men tracking Jesus through the city.  But it can be done.

But we tend to think that because it’s been so hard to get where we are, then that’s as far as we can go.  Imagine if those blind men had said “We followed Jesus, found Him, spoke with Him and were touched by Him, but that’s all we can do, cause we’re blind.”  They would have stayed blind.  But when they said “I believe there is something else You have for me”, they received sight.  Don’t short change yourself by thinking you’ve gone as far as you can.  You aren’t limited by your capabilities, but by your belief.

Keep believing,
