“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”-Mark 9:23
It’s such a simple word, but how often do we Christians find ourselves unable to truly trust in God? I’ve been reading lately in the Gospels, and it strikes me how often Jesus talked about faith. It was a constant theme throughout His teachings and His ministry. Often when He healed people, it was because of their faith or the faith of somebody near them.
How many times do we read the promises of Jesus and then add a “but” to them? “All things are possible but…” I believe Jesus wants us to truly trust Him when He says the word “all”, and yet how little we do.
Is there something you are praying for that you know is God’s will? Then cry out with the father in Mark 9:24, “Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.”
And then watch Jesus fulfill His promises.
