What you believed could happen has happened.
I find it so interesting that story after story in the bible shows what people believed about Jesus and how he would heal them; the Roman captain whose servant was sick said to Jesus ' Just give the order and my servant will be fine.' The lady with who had been bleeding for 12 years was thinking to herself 'If I can just put a finger on his robe I'll get well.' Another one a local official approached Jesus because his daughter had just died and he said ' if you come and touch her she will live.'
Then there is the story of the two blind men who followed Jesus from the little girls house to his home crying out 'mercy, son of David , mercy on us' till Jesus finally turned around and said "Do you really believe I can do this?" To which they replied 'why yes master' Jesus touched their eyes and said "Become what you believe."
Powerful statement huh?"Become what you believe."
The others believed they would be healed if: Jesus touched them , if he spoke the words, if she could touch the hem of his robe.
The part that I find interesting about this story is that Jesus met them each INDIVIDUALLY where they were at....the one who believed the words would be spoken and healing would come, it happened just like that.
The lady who believed she would touch his garment and be healed, it happened just like that.
The father who believed his daughter had to be touched by Jesus to be healed, it happened just like that.
He was never the one who said 'I have to touch you to be healed, or you need to touch me or I must speak the words.
He met them at their level of belief!
What area of your life have you stopped believing?
What area do you need healing? Jesus wants to meet you right where you are at and the only requirement is that you believe?
That anything is possible, that he can turn around ANY situation for good; that he can heal your physical body, that he can heal a broken relationship, that he has a way to bring home the runaway, that he has a way out of the addiction, that he can provide for your needs!!
Christmas is a time we celebrate His birth, we believe he came to earth as a child, now will you also believe that He loves you TODAY and that he cares about you and that He will make a way?!?!
BELEIVE and if you have trouble simply ask for the strength to believe again!!
Merry Christmas friends!
I truly love you and pray you feel his love in a tangible way today!!
