Fervency of Faith
“...They were all completely amazed and praised God, saying, ‘We have never seen anything like this!’” (Mark 2:12 GNT)
When the Lord walked on earth, he did miracles; and he still does miracles today, if we will believe. While the Lord astounded those with whom he came in contact, so that they had to exclaim, “We have never seen anything like this,” he himself was astounded only when he encountered true fervency of faith. The Lord wants to pour out his blessings upon us and move those mountains in our lives, but he is looking to see if we are all out in our faith. If we’re thinking to ourselves, “Maybe I can trust Jesus, but maybe not,” we will never witness all that God can do. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and he is still moved by the faith of his people. Let’s ask him for that fervency of faith to believe. He is still mighty to save and to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we can ask or even imagine!
Read Mark 2:8-12, which concludes the story of how Jesus healed a paralyzed man.
