God’s blank cheque

The Gospels records how Jesus’ ministry was characterised by crowds of people, who came to him to be healed. Amongst them were two blind men. He asked them if they believed he could do this, and they said yes. Then he said to them: ‘According to your faith will it be done to you,’ and they received their sight.
Those words remind us that there are only two things that limit what we receive from God: the first is God’s will itself, which knows what is ultimately best for us; and the second is the level of our faith to believe it.
It’s like a blank cheque made out to us and signed by God, ready for us to write in the correct amount. When we dare ask for something that is in accordance with his good and perfect will for us, his reply is still: ‘According to your faith will it be done to you.’
