Boundaries of Blessing

According to your faith be it unto you.
Matthew 9:29

You can believe God too little but not too much. That does not mean that He will honor faith for some unwise extravagant thing outside the circle of your need and His will. But there is room for plenty of miracles within His will. You won’t feel cramped!

“Believe ye that I am able to do this?” There are three angles to this matter: “YE,” “I,” “THIS.” Our faith, His power, our need. The boundaries of His blessing are “according to his will,” “according to your faith,” “all your need.”

But do not think “all your need” means something like “bare necessities.” He gives liberally and upbraids not, gives more than we can ask or think, all sufficiency in all things, abundance of grace. He is plenteous in mercy. All things are ours.

Within His wide horizons you can never ask too much. If without faith it is impossible to please Him, then great faith must please Him much.
