Yes, Lord

{Daily Selah}

Blind, unable to care for themselves or their families, two men longed for a touch from the Savior. They followed Jesus, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us... (Matthew 9:27)

(continue reading below the picture)

Jesus saw their need and knew what was in their hearts, yet He asked, Believe ye that I am able to do this?  (Matthew 9:28)

Why would Jesus ask a question to which He already knew the answer? He wanted them to confess their faith before He would bring their deliverance. (Think about that for a moment.)

The blind men responded in faith, Yea, Lord.

Yes, Lord.

Those are two very simple words, filled with volumes of meaning.

Jesus asks you and I the same question that He asked of the blind men and is waiting for the same answer, so that He can say to us, According to your faith be it unto you (Matthew 9:29).

We believed on Him for salvation, placed our faith in His ability to wash away our sin and make us right with God. That's the greatest miracle you and I could ever experience.

So, why do we worry when trouble comes our way? Why do we stress over our finances, our jobs, our children and other concerns of this life?

Jesus is still the all-powerful, all-knowing and all-seeing God who loved us enough to die for us. He still touches hearts and lives and He knows all of my needs and all of yours. 

No matter what's going on in our lives right in this moment, we can always trust our Savior with the outcome. As we wait for Him to touch our situation,  He's waiting for you and me to answer His question:

Believe ye that I am able to do this?

Yes, Lord. 

{Daily Selah} is a mini-devotional, a pause to ponder about the Lord and how He wants us to live.
