Today’s devotion is based on Matthew 9:28, “When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, ‘Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
Their answer was in the affirmative. Do you believe? Now that’s a question! I have known several people who had what I would describe as having a simple faith. That is not to be taken as putting them down or criticizing their faith. It just means that their faith was That wasn’t putting her down or criticizing their faith. Their faith was uncomplicated. They did not have all the answers to the big questions about God, but they trusted him in their life and death.
What about you? Do you believe in simple, childlike trust that Jesus can bring you out of the darkness that wants to smother you, and take you into a place of light? These two men in the Bible show us the way. They follow after Jesus, they persevere, and they ask quite simply. And their sight is restored.
Please pray with me, Jesus, I call you ‘Lord’, which means I believe you are Lord over everything and every aspect of my life. Reach out your hand and heal. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
