When God does half a miracle, dare to believe him for the rest

“And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.””(‭‭Mark‬ ‭8:24‬)

The account of Jesus healing a blind man in stages is remarkable. He could have healed him in one go, but chose to do it in stages. I’m sure this was because Jeuss wanted to draw out faith in the man. 

Perhaps you have seen God begin to do something in your life. Maybe it’s something you’ve been asking for a long time. Now you feel a bit like the blind man: something has definitely changed but not enough. 

You have a choice: are you going to settle for things being a bit better than they are?  Or, are you going to be bitter that you haven’t received what you asked for? Or, will you give thanks to God for what he has done for you, but go back to him again and in faith ask him to complete the work he started?
