If You Can Believe

…Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matthew 19:26

When a poor demon-possessed child was brought to Jesus, the father of the child, obviously desperate, said to Jesus, “…if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Jesus’ replied, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:22–23).

Now, many of us have been taught that Jesus was saying that as long as you have the necessary faith, all things are possible for you. In other words, if you can produce the faith, you can have your miracle. But is this what Jesus meant?

If you study the Greek structure of this verse, what Jesus was actually saying was that all things are possible for Him who always believes. Jesus is the only Man who always believes, who always has perfect faith. And because He is Lord, all things are possible for Him!

My friend, simply hook your limited faith to the perfect faith of the Son of God. Just believe that He Himself has all the faith for your miracle. Even when you are faithless, believe that He remains faithful (2 Timothy 2:13). When you rest in His faith that NEVER fails, you’ll see His faithfulness bring your miracle to pass!

    Wow, I had been taught for years that wrong way–me producing faith instead of looking to my savior–and again I say, Wow!!! I gotta tell ya Pastor Joe-Joe, it’s like I’m learning so much new and fresh teaching listening to you and I was born-again when I was eight years old.

    Much love and Jesus is Lord,
    Mike Thompson
