Seeking divine help in your life? Try this!

Whenever I think of desperation–and determinism–I think of the two blind men Jesus met in Matthew, chapter 9. Once they spotted Him walking along the road, they began following Him and shouting, “Son of David, have pity on us!” (verse 27). Even after Jesus had reached His destination and gone inside, they persisted.
Finally, Jesus turned to them and asked, “Do you believe I can make you well?” It was a critical moment. Their answer could change everything. Without hesitation the two men responded, “Yes, Lord. Yes!” (verse 28). And with the touch of a holy finger, their world swirled into focus.
Are you seeking divine help for your own circumstances? Pray big. Think big. Believe big. “Because of your faith,” Jesus told the blind men, “you will be healed” (verse 29). Your life is going to be in proportion to how greatly you believe. Believe little, you get a little life. Believe weak, you get a weak life. Believe fear, you get a life of fear. Believe sickness, you get a sick life. But believe big, and you get a big life!
Jesus said, “Anything is possible for someone who has faith!” (Mark 9:23). Does this mean that the person who believes is going to get everything he wants? No, it doesn’t say that. But it does mean that if you believe big, you move things out of the realm of the impossible into the realm of the possible.
Christianity is the religion of the incredible, the religion of the astonishing, the religion of the breathless. You bring to yourself what you believe.
