John 9:11 He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”

Our breakthrough is on the other side of our belief and obedience. This man believed in the power working through Jesus, therefore, he obeyed His instructions. What would have happened if this man didn’t take Jesus seriously or didn’t follow His instructions? He would have been blind for the remainder of his life.

A lot of us want the blessings, but we won’t believe and/or we won’t obey. For instance, some of us have a dream so big inside of us until we can’t see how it’s going to come to pass, therefore, we won’t go after that dream because we don’t believe with God all things are possible (Matt. 19:26). Or, we want a great relationship, but we won’t believe they can exist or obey God by forgiving an ex and choose instead to harbor bitterness and unforgiveness towards that ex.

For the manifestation of God’s promises, belief and obedience go hand in hand. Like a respectful young child who is willing to believe and obey anything, believe the Word of God and do what it says.
