Good morning everyone! I was led to this passage and message for everyone to reflect on. When we are going through a trial it’s hard to imagine how things will get better. God wants us to depend on Him in every trial we face. When we can’t, God can. God loves us as dearly and He is willing and able to turn our situation around if we will depend on Him, trust in Him, and wait on Him.
“…but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26b)
Jesus teaches us “all things are possible” if we believe. Does it say some things are possible? No. Does it say only one thing is possible? No. He said “all things are possible to him who believes”. All in its adjective form is an inclusive word, it literally means any and everything you can think of and even the stuff you haven’t thought of yet.
If Jesus said all things are possible, then it means ALL things are possible to him who believes, doesn’t it? Yes did does. It means you can be freed from the power of sin, you can overcome an addiction, your heart can be made new, your marriage can be restored, your faith can increase and many more things are possible to him who believes.
What are you choosing not to believe today? If you find yourself holding on to unbelief, do what the father did in this passage today. Mark 9:24 says the father cried out, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” You can be assured that’s a prayer Jesus will answer.
What are you facing today that only God can turn around? No matter what you are facing, no matter what your need—rest assured, when you can’t, God can. Apart from Jesus we can do nothing (John 15:5), but with God all things are possible (Matthew. 19:26). As God’s word teaches, I encourage you to believe nothing will be impossible for you.
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
