The Great Law of Faith
. . . 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 to your faith be it unto you. — MATTHEW 9:28–29
Notice that Jesus didn’t say to the two blind men, “Well, because you are sincere and honest, go your way and see.” No, He didn’t say that.
You see, although people should be sincere and honest, they must also act in faith. These two blind men who followed Jesus from Jairus’ house, crying, “Thou Son of David, have mercy on us,” were still blind after calling out to Jesus.
All your crying and praying is of no avail unless you definitely believe that God does for you what He claims He does. That is so important. Jesus asked these two blind men a question, “Do you believe?” In other words, He asked, “Do you believe that I’m able to heal you?” If you don’t believe God is able to meet your need, you are wasting your time taking any further steps.
You see, God operates on laws or principles, just as the natural world operates. Paul said in Romans, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse” (Rom. 1:20). This seen world operates on certain laws. For instance, there are certain natural laws that must be in place in order for electricity to be produced. The same is true of God’s power.
After Jesus asked the blind men if they believed, He was able to heal them. Jesus uttered the great law of faith: “According to your faith, be it unto you” (Matt. 9:29). The law of faith determines for every one of us the measure of our blessings. Then Jesus touched the blind men’s eyes and sight was restored to them. They went out into the day, able to see the glorious light.
Confession: According to my faith, be it done unto me. Just as the natural world operates according to certain laws, the spiritual world operates according to certain laws. One law, the great law of faith, determines the measure of my blessing.
