If the Lord Is Willing

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Matthew 8 today.
A certain leper may not have had a sound body, but he did have a sound mind and a sound heart. Listen to this from the pen of Matthew, “And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, ‘Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean'” (Matthew 8:2). The leper had it right, that his cleansing was dependent upon the Lord’s will and not whether He had the ability, because He did have the ability. The leper knew that the Lord’s ability was not in question, only His will.
How do you approach God concerning the issues of your life? Do you understand that His power is not in question, but only if He wills that something takes place? This also means that the issue is of our faith. Is it in the right place? Is our faith based upon the proper understanding of God, His power, His will, and His way of doing things?
Examine your faith today and see if you have the faith of the leper.
