In today's journal there were quite a few scriptures that stuck out to me but one in general really caught my attention.
"What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus asked him.The blind man said, "Rabbi, I want to see."
"Go," said Jesus, "your faith has healed you." Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
Here Jesus and his disciples where in Jericho and a blind man was crying out to Jesus asking for mercy. Jesus asked his disciples to bring the man to him. Jesus asked the man what he wants done for him, and the man simply replies "Rabbi, I want to see" Jesus replied "your faith has healed you" and the man was able to see.
This passage really spoke to me because our God is such a miraculous healer. This is just one of many example of miracles performed by Jesus. In this passage Jesus healed a blind mind and said it was his "faith" that healed him. How often do we ask Jesus for healing and then get upset or impatient when the healing doesn't occur instantly?????? Well first off God does things in his time and for certain reasons, but it also takes faith to accept the healing. You can't just ask for healing and expect results if you don't have faith that God will truly heal you. This man who asked for healing received it because he had faith and believed that he was gonna be healed. This reminds me of that story of the lady who wanted to be healed by Jesus and how she believed all she had to do was touch his robe and then she would be healed. Because of this faith that she had in Jesus she was instantly healed. Now I'm not saying that in every case you will be instantly healed, but if you have faith the healing will begin instantly and God will do works on your body. Lets remember in all that we do to have faith in Jesus and he will give us what we need.
