The reality of who Jesus is does not depend on our belief in this truth. However, when we trust and believe in Him our faith allows us to do great things. In Luke 11:25-26 Jesus is talking to Martha about her brother Lazarus’ death, 25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” Jesus asked her to trust in Him, not because He needed her faith to perform miracles, but because her faith in Him would fulfill the desires of her heart through the miracle. We see Martha’s answer to Jesus in Luke 11:27, “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.” Even through her suffering, she was able to believe Jesus had the ability to do anything because of who He is. No matter how we feel, or whatever is going on in our lives, we must trust and believe that Jesus has the ability to do all things. This does not mean He will, but has the ability, and is ultimately for His glory.
