Matthew 9:29 says” according to your faith will it be done to you.”
Many times in our daily lives we come across cross roads in life, some cross roads can be a breeze for us and doesn’t require much from us then there are those cross roads which can literally drop us to our knees. The pain, hurt and discomfort we feel will make one want to pull his or her hair out of their head.
Your pulse is racing and yet you are overwhelmed because you never expected such a thing to hit you or the family. In shame you feel naked and not wanting a soul to know what has happen to the family or to you. But somewhere through the discomfort and agony you muster up enough strength to tell someone to pray for you.
You begin to pray for yourself not even knowing where to begin but you start opening your mouth and before long you utter a few words. You have faith for everyone else, you have heard all the sermons and read every scripture on faith, and yet you don’t have faith for yourself. Why is that? You pray about things in your life and you press through and yet your circumstances have not changed. Do you know why?
It’s because you and I do not believe according to our faith. Jesus healed many people and He asked them one question, He said do you believe that I am able to do this? Now it’s time for you and I to respond to His question, what will be your answer? The man who was blind said yes to Jesus and Jesus said “according to your faith will it be done to you.
This is where we miss the mark in our faith, because you and I have for so long-handled things ourselves we are afraid to really leave it in God’s hand that is why the moment we pray we snatch it right out of God’s hands. We are afraid that He will not answer the way we want Him to. That is why Jesus said “according to your faith” Jesus knows what He can do it’s us who aren’t a hundred percent sure of our faith we say we have.
Other times what we normally do is pray about a situation but somewhere between our lips and heart we lose the transition. And the reason that happens is because the moment we open our mouth to pray we don’t believe in what we are asking.
Faith takes work people, you just can’t say you believe God and not exercise your faith. The bible says for without faith it is impossible to please God and it also says that faith without works is dead. So when you pray and you don’t add faith what do you think happens to your prayer? It automatically becomes dead, it does not move it sits there like a car running out of gas.
In God we have a place of sustenance and rest.
