According to Your Faith

Romans 9
28 And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them,
"Do you believe that I am able to do this?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord."
29 Then He touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith let it be to you."

It is "According to your faith."
It is for you to set the bounds of your experience. If you trust Him much, you shall realize much.

The resources are there: if you make small drafts on the bank of Heaven, do not wonder if you are always ragged and down-at-the-heel, rattling a few pennies, while others are rich with God's gold.
The Lord is rich unto all that call upon Him (Romans 10:12): you may be rich, "for all things are yours"
(1 Corinthians 3:21).

Remember that faith is not a strange sensation that comes over you in rare moments, a magic thrill from something in the minister's voice, a mystic trance to be reached once in a while, then lost for weeks or years.

It is a sturdy confidence that God will keep His promises, confidence enough to walk out on them and live there, although the world expects them to crack and crumble under you any day.

Don't waste your time looking for fancy recipes in poems and books and lectures about triumphant living. You will triumph only as you trust: as you have faith, so will you fare.

As you believe in Him, in proportion as you trust Him, so shall your experience be.
