Then He (Jesus) touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you.” Matthew 9:29

I joke that my eyesight without glasses or contacts leaves me pretty much blind. That’s almost true; it would be impossible for me to function without some sort of corrective lens. As a child, I remember my teacher telling us about Heaven and how there would be no illness or problems with our body. All I could think about was not having to wear glasses anymore. Though I’m not blind, I can sympathize with those who are. Jesus could do more than that. When the blind and mute were brought to Him, He healed them. In Matthew 29:8, he asked two blind men, “Do you believe I am able to do this (heal)?” The men replied with, “Yes, Lord” and were healed. You and I may not literally be blind or mute, but spiritually we sometimes suffer from these problems. How often are we blind to what God is asking us to do? Blind to those who need our help? Blind to what is really important in this life? How often are we mute when presented with an opportunity to share our faith? Silent when we could be inviting someone to church or a Bible study? Distracted and mute when we have a chance to teach our children about the Lord? Yes. We are blind and mute. But thankfully, God can heal us, too. He asks us, “Do you believe I am able to do this? To follow through with my plans for you? To give you the means to help others? To provide the words and scripture to help you share your faith? Can I do it?” Of course He can. We must reply with, “Yes, Lord.” God can do great things in your life; He can use you in ways you never even imagined or thought possible. “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29). He can heal our blindness and inability to speak if we trust in Him with full faith and let Him lead.
