THE STORY OF JESUS: Mark 9:14-29
“Everything is possible for one who believes.” (Mark 9:23)
Is this ACTUALLY true, can believing make the impossible possible?
It depends in part on who or what we believe in.
If I believe in something weak, I cannot expect strong results.
If I believe in something evil, I cannot expect good results.
But if we put our hope in a good, all powerful God, there are new possibilities.
It is not ‘belief’ that makes things possible, but ‘belief in God!’
Evil spirits have power in our lives because we believe the thoughts they produce.
Negative, doubtful, hopeless, selfish, jealous, angry thoughts or feelings…
We give more credit to negativity or despair, than to the God of hope.
Every situation, crisis, or challenge has good possibility, when God is involved.
Jesus is not urging this man to believe in belief, but to believe in Him, and God.
Stop letting your fears convince you that they are bigger, better than God.
Trust God, and tell your fears how big your God is.
“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24)
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, no matter how big or scary or hopeless my situation may be, You are always bigger. I choose to trust You, help me do this more and more.
