Perhaps faith is believing the unbelievable. When two blind men approach Jesus, he asks them whether they think he is even capable of healing them. Their response is unequivocal: “Yes, Lord.” Jesus’ response confirms their faith: “According to your faith, let it be done to you.” How did they believe? After a lifetime of false promises and hope, after years of resignation, why would they now believe? Might doubt have crept into the back of their minds? I would imagine it must have—for faith is not the same as certainty. Faith is hope, not knowledge; trust, not mere assurance. Perhaps faith is believing the unbelievable and rejoicing when the unimaginable appears before us.
