Faith that He will

I've just been lying around and taking Tylenol as needed all weekend. As I'm trying my best to understand this whole thing yesterday, this was my devotional last night from Beth Moore's book, March 1:

WHETHER OR NOT WE LIKE THE CONCEPT, CHRIST LOVES TO RESPOND TO US ACCORDING TO OUR FAITH. Lord Jesus, before You healed the blind men who cried out for Your mercy, You asked them, "Do you believe that I am able to do this?" After they replied to You by saying, "Yes, Lord," You touched their eyes and You said, "According to your faith will it be done to you " (Matt. 9:28-29). Clearly my faith impacts what You are willing to perform in my life. Please help me to believe that You are able. Lord, I want to be like the one to whom You said, "Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted" (Matt. 15:28). Flourish this kind of faith in me, God!

Oh, for Him to be able to say to me, "Woman, you have great faith to believe I will. Your request is granted." Faith not only to believe that He is able but, also, that He will. Flourish this kind of faith in me, O God!
