Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life – Galatians 6:5 (Message Bible)
Some Christians try to make God responsible for what actually is their responsibility. Often times, when something unpleasant happens they’d conclude, “It’s the will of God; otherwise, why did He let it happen?” What such people need to realize is that the authority to change things on earth, and make your life as beautiful as you want it to be, has been delegated to us. Thus, you can make your life glorious; and one of the ways to do this is by your faith.
In Matthew 17:20, the Lord Jesus was emphatic when He said, “…verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” He makes it clear that you can create your victorious life by acting your faith; you don’t have to wait on God! He already gave you the measure of faith you require to “move mountains” (Romans 12:3); that is, to effect the changes you desire. If Jesus had said, “nothing shall be impossible unto God,” that would have been easy enough to agree with; but He said nothing shall be impossible unto YOU.
Then in Mark 9:23, He said, “…all things are possible to him that believeth.” So the big question is: Do you believe? If you do, then what do you believe? If you believe His Word and put it to work in your life, then anything is possible with you. You shouldn’t wait for God to alter the circumstances keeping you from living out His Word; you’re responsible to cause those changes that you desire.
Don’t “wait” for His Word to come to pass in your life; rather, you’re to “work” the Word. Philippians 2:12 says, “…work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” In other words, work out the Word in your life and make it produce results. By your faith, you can be what you want to be, change what you want to change, and achieve what you want to achieve!
God has already given you the dominion and the authority to create your triumphant life by altering the course of events in your life to conform with His perfect will. Keep living in the Word, and the glory of God will be manifest in all you do.
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me. My life is one of endless glory, joy, victories, successes, and possibilities! Nothing is impossible unto me! I’m a believer in Christ Jesus, therefore, a possessor of all things! Hallelujah.
