Matthew 9:28 When Jesus got home, the blind men went in with him. Jesus said to them, “Do you really believe I can do this?” They said, “Why, yes, Master!”
Seeing isn’t always believing. Often when we start attending recovery groups we see what is going on but we don’t believe it. There is a saying “the proof of the pudding is in the eating.” For some of us until we start experiencing changes in our lives because of recovery we just don’t believe it.
This scripture tells of some of the miraculous healing powers of Jesus. In the featured verse, Jesus asked two blind men “do you believe I can do this?”
Do you believe Jesus can heal people?
A question we all need to answer as we progress in the process of recovery.
- Do I believe Jesus cares enough about me to heal me?
Prayer: Just for today, Lord help me to believe that You love me and care enough about me to heal me
“The health of the apple tells the health of the tree.” You must begin with your own life-giving lives.
We’re being shown how to turn our backs on a godless, indulgent life, and how to take on a God-filled, God-honoring life. This new life is starting right now.
Jesus said to His disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. “ Anyone who wants to live all out for Christ is in for a lot of trouble; there’s no getting around it.
Recovery is not always going to be easy
But it is always going to be worth it
