“If you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:22-24)
Jesus declares with authority, “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Truly believing the key ideas of the God found in the Bible is a powerful proposition, isn’t it? Throughout the teaching of Jesus, and the whole Bible for that matter, we are encouraged to believe not just in our heads but also in our hearts. We are invited to believe these powerful truths not only as the right answers but also as a way of life….
Like the man in Mark 9, tell God where you are in the form of a prayer request: “I do believe some things, Lord, but would you help me overcome what I am struggling to believe?” If you do, he will.
Then watch out, because everything is possible for the one who believes.
