Being Fully Persuaded.
“And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us. 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. Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.”
Faith is being fully persuaded about God’s power to perform His promise. When you are in faith, there is no shaking. You are too sure that what you have believed for and what God has said will happen.
Like we see in our opening scripture, Jesus touched their eyes because they believed in His power. That means the touch came after they believed. Therefore, if you want to see the hand of God in your life, then you must have faith in God.
Jesus said to them, “… According to your faith be it unto you.” That means the acts of God are governed by our faith. Abraham was in a hopeless situation with his wife Sarah. There was no physical hope for them to have a child anymore, but when Abraham and Sarah believed God they saw His hand and His power.
The Bible says, “(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb: He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.” Romans 4:17-21.
Please read Ephesians 1:17-19 and ask God to give you revelations of His power in you.

Mark 5:35-36 (KJV)
While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s [house certain] which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
Mark 9:23-24 (KJV)
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things [are] possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.
Romans 4:2-3 (KJV)
For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath [whereof] to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
