I read a story I would love to share here that really buttresses the words of Jesus:

“According to your faith be it unto you.”

“Once upon a time, a doctor had gone to the cinema accompanied by his wife.In the middle of the show the wife had an attack of headache.The doctor had no pills for headache with him.He had an imagination.He tore off a button from his coat and asked the wife to chew it. Believing that a pill was given to her by her doctor husband,her headache stopped immediately.”

In medical research,the scenario above is similar to the placebo effect! This is when a person’s physical or mental health appears to improve after taking a ‘dummy’ treatment.

The doctor’s wife had faith in her husband being a doctor.She then had no doubt he had given her an analgesic!

In the case of Christ,the blind men came to him with an absolute faith in His ability to heal them:

“When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”

“Yes, Lord,” they replied.

Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you””-Act 9:28-29

Truly,the dictum “According to thy faith” is apt!
