God Thinking XXXVII - I Challenge You To A Belief Duel 9

"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.
V28 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?
V29 Then touched He their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
V30 And their eyes were opened;and Jesus straightly charged them, saying, See that no man know it.” 

True belief, gives mustard seed faith, Sycamore tree potency.

Matthew 5:21-36
“And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto Him: and He was nigh unto the sea.
V22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw Him, he fell at His feet.
V23 And besought Him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live.
V24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed Him, and thronged Him.
V25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,
V26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse,
V27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched His garment.
V28 For she said, If I may touch but His clothes, I shall be whole.
V29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.
V30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that virtue had gone out of Him, turned Him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?
V31 And His disciples said unto Him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched Me?
V32 And He looked round about to see her that had done this thing.
V33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before Him, and told Him all the truth.
V34 And He said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
V35 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?
V36 As soon as Jesus heard the word spoken, He saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.”

Let’s apply our definition of belief right here in this text, “Be not afraid, only” be fully persuaded; having your mind made up, convinced beyond question, without any doubt, past the point of turning back, that the object of your belief, (in this case, Christ’s ability to raise the dead), will be accomplished.)
