Week 10.6 Jesus Heals the Blind and the Mute pt 1
Bible Reading: Matthew 9:27-31
What did Jesus ask the blind men?
Jesus didn’t respond immediately to the blind men’s pleas. He waited to see if they had faith. Not everyone who says he wants help really believes God can help him. Jesus may have waited and questioned these men to emphasize and increase their faith. When you think that God is too slow in answering your prayers, consider that he might be testing you as he did the blind men. Do you believe that God can help you? Do you really want his help?
- NLT Life Application Study Bible
What factors can prevent us from believing that we will receive what we ask for?
Thank you God that you listen to my prayers. Please increase my faith in you so that I can believe wholeheartedly in what I ask for.
Verse of the Week:
On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
