According to Your Faith
For let not that man [the man who wavers] think that
he shall receive any thing of the Lord. — JAMES 1:7
In Matthew chapter 9, two blind men were following Jesus as he left Jairus’ house. They were crying and saying, “Thou son of David, have mercy on us!” Then Jesus asked the blind men a question.
He said, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said, “Yes, Lord.” Did Jesus touch their eyes and say, “According to the faith of your church, so be it done unto you”? No, He didn’t say that! Did He say, “According to My faith, the faith of the Son of God, so be it, because I sort of took a liking to you two blind fellows”? No! Did He say, “According to the faith of Kenneth Hagin, so be it done unto you”? No, of course He didn’t. Jesus said, “According to your faith, so be it done unto you” (Matt. 9:29).
You see, Jesus asked them a question: “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” Then Jesus uttered the great law of faith that determines in every one of our lives the extent and measure of our blessing: “According to your faith, so be it done unto you.” And the Bible says that the two blind men’s eyes were opened (Matt. 9:30).
What opened their eyes? Their faith. And you can have faith just like the two blind men. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
Confession: Faith is coming into my heart, into my spirit, into my inner man. Faith is coming because I’m hearing the Word of God.
