Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth (Mark 9:23).
The verse above is the response from the Lord Jesus to a man who was helpless and in a distressed situation. His son had been taken over by a demon, which often threw him into the fire and into the water to destroy him. Desperate, the man finally came to Jesus and said, Master, “…if thou canst do anything, have compassion on us, and help us” (Mark 9:22). Jesus then answered him saying, “…If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”
My question to you today is, can you believe? If you can believe, anything is possible! It doesn’t matter what the case is, if you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes. Do you believe you can walk again? Do you believe you can see again? Do you believe you can be whole again? There’s enough transforming power in you to effect a positive change in that very situation you might be in right now.
Perhaps sickness has attacked your home or you have a loved one that’s suffering terribly from a debilitating ailment, and the doctors have said “there’s no way out”: “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” There’s no such thing as “no way out” for the Christian who has the Holy Spirit. You can have a testimony if you’d only believe.
Consider Moses and the children of Israel. Hemmed in by the Red Sea and the fierce Egyptian army, Moses cried unto God for help. What happened? God instructed Moses to stretch his hand over the water and divide it. Moses did as he was instructed and the Red Sea split wide open.
There’s no hopeless situation for the child of God. If you can only believe, nothing shall be impossible unto you. Instead of crying about the situation, lamenting how dire it is, effect a change today by putting your faith to work.
I thank you, Father, for my victory in life is through your Word! I triumph gloriously over every adversity today because the greater One lives in me and enlightens my understanding. Now, I function in the immeasurable greatness of your power, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
