Matthew 9:27-29 – According to Your Faith

Matthew 9:27-29
And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou son of David, have mercy on us.
28 And when he was come into the house, the blind men came to him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto him, Yea, Lord.
29 Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.

-When asking for things from the Lord, we typically expect one of two answers; yes or no.  Sometimes, as in the case of this text, the answer is not so simple.  These blind men ask for sight and Jesus gave them healing according to their belief.  What do you take away from that?  If one had believed more than the other, was he healed to a greater extent?  If one hadn’t truly believed, would he have remained blind?  I have a better question for you; if God answered your prayers with “According to your faith be it unto you”, would you get that which you sought?  When you come to God, do you truly believe that He is working?  Do you truly believe that He cares?  Do you even believe that He is there?  The Bible teaches that “without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
