Mission POSSIBLE with FAITH!
So often we think that the situations we face are impossible, hopeless and permanently NEVER going to change. But that is NOT what Jesus taught.
Mathew 9:23 "What do you mean, 'If I can'?" Jesus asked. "Anything is possible if a person believes."
ALL things are possible for ANYONE who believes. It's not just for a select few, but ANYONE. God doesn't separate us like the world does by education, income, social standing, hobbies or what we wear or drive. God says by our level of FAITH!
We can limit our lives by having too little faith. Like the children of Israel who turned back in fear after FINALLY reaching the Promised Land. They forgot that God delivered them from Pharaoh, divided the sea for their safe escape, gave them water from a rock, food from heaven (manna), and guided safely with a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night. Yet when they saw a few big folks living in the Promised Land they thought it was too much for God. It's like, "REALLY?!" But we do the very same thing, sure we have faith that God will be there to take us to heaven but we aren't sure if He can provide a healing, restore a relationship, help our financial situation or provide a home to live in.
We need to get serious and start BELIEVING in our inner most heart that what God has said is TRUE! God gives us numerous examples showing us that BY FAITH, things ARE changed for the BEST!
The woman who had the issue of blood, was healed instantly. Matthew 9:22, Jesus turned around, and when he saw her he said, "Daughter, be encouraged! Your faith has made you well." And the woman was healed at that moment.
We have the power to speak life or death into our lives, health and prosperity if we choose! How much faith do you need? If you can believe that God has forgiven your sins, then you have faith enough already! Just apply that to the rest of your life!
And my all time favorite verse on faith is Matthew 17:20 And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
Even if you have given up in the past, start again right now with renewed hope and faith that God is on your side! Pray and give your requests to God, and thank Him that He is already at work on bringing about your needs as you seek Him first! When problems arise, go first to God with it, not your BFF or Mom. ha ha ha! God has WAAAAYYY more power than either of them!
I pray that your faith is stirred and you stand firm on the promises of God has His Word and promises never fail and never change. Now go find those promises in the Bible that pertain to your situation, healing etc. and start memorizing them so that they are foremost in your thoughts when your mind comes back to trying to "solve" the problem you are facing. Put the living Word of God to work on it instead!
Huge love to you, Faith to move mountains and the Wisdom to us it!
Your faithful sister in Him,
