Matthew 9:29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
God is able to do all things and with Him, nothing is impossible. As much then as our belief in God ought to extend to the point of touching all things, the encounter between Jesus with the two blind men sets our mind to a particular scope of the application of faith.
We are exposed to the dimension of faith where God isolates parts of His counsel to clarify if indeed we believe that He is able to do a particular thing. The question Jesus posed to the two blind men was as follows ‘do you believe that I am able to do THIS?’ This was not a generic application of faith, but an isolated expression in a particular matter.
When these men responded ‘Yes Lord‘, Jesus added ‘according to your faith, be it done unto you’. In effect, whatever they believed was possible and would happen, Jesus had given permission to happen. That I thought was a dangerous ‘blank check’. Faith is such a force that whenever faith says Yes, God does not say oppose.
So again, we come back to the words ‘according to your faith’. We ought to grow the measure of faith we have each been given to the point where we can and do believe God not just for ‘this’, but for all things. That way, we can truly experience what it means to walk with the God who is able to do all things.
