Mar 9:23 ‘Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”’
Anything is possible for someone who has faith… Wow.
This means “impossibility” is a word that came as a result of man’s inability to have faith in God.
The mountains we see stopping us are not real. They are a sign of our inability to believe. People will tell you something is impossible because they themselves have not been able to figure out how to achieve it; and you don’t even need to understand fully how to achieve it in order to achieve it – you just need to believe it and act!
There is no impossibility in God’s dictionary. Lk 1:37 says that there is nothing impossible to God. It only exists in man’s dictionary. The thing between your dream and you are just belief in God, and action.
I recently watched a documentary of Dale Carnegie, and how he did something that people thought was impossible – building a bridge across the Mississipi River. The Missisipi River is one mile across at some points, and is the largest river system in the United States. Dale Carnegie was told by his experts that what he envisaged was in fact impossible. The sheer weight of the material it would take to run accross the river would be too heavy for whatever was used to build it. He replied with one statement: “Nothing is impossible!”.
You see it is only impossible until someone does it. The correct word for impossible is ‘no one has done it – yet’. No one believed a black man could rule the USA – until Obama spoke his belief in his campaign tagged – ‘Yes We Can!’ and acted on it. It was only impossible until he gave what it took and won the election. Everything is impossible until someone does it. The question is, what are you going to be the first at? The essence of the human experience is leaving a mark in the sands of time. The question is, are you going to give and share with the world something to bless it in this way, or are you going to give excuses and blame others?
Carnegie kept searching for the solution. He found it in steel – which was very uncommon at the time, and which no one had ever considered for such a project. The end of the story was of course that after surmounting challenges, he built a steel plant and the bridge, which catapulted him to becoming one of the richest men and philanthrophists in human history.
What has your mind and people told you is impossible? What seems unreachable today? Know that it’s just your lack of belief and action (faith) that has kept you away from it; not anyone, and not impossibility. Everything is possible. It just depends on your belief and your action. Remember that your faith is shown in your words too.
Mat 17:20 Jesus replied: It is because you don’t have enough faith! But I can promise you this. If you had faith no larger than a mustard seed [the smallest seed], you could tell this mountain to move from here to there. And it would. EVERYTHING WOULD BE POSSIBLE FOR YOU.
Mat 21:22 And all things, whatever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive.
Another side to this is, try not to pass blames. When we blame others, we deny the power in us to change things. When we ACCEPT that we could have done something, but we didn’t, we accept and increase that power. The Word says we can change anything. We might not be able to change a human being – but through prayer, God can. We can change anything as believers. This brings on us a responsibility. If we don’t like what happened, it’s because we didn’t do anything about it, not because we couldn’t do anything about it. Your power to change anything as a Christian is sure. The answer to your prayer might not have manifested, but one thing is sure – it will.
You might not be able to see how you could change something so much bigger than you. But neither could Apostle Paul or Martin Luther King. They just believed, and acted on their belief, and it took faith, time and perseverance, but their dream came to pass! It’s a principle that does not change. It could take faith and perseverance, but nothing is impossible.
That dream in your heart is not impossible. Just believe it, speak and act!
I am a Son of power with God. I admit that I have the ability to change things. I do not cry or blame anyone, for I CAN DO AND BECOME ANYTHING I believe and act on with perseverance. I accept this power and put it to work every day, winning all the way. Nothing can stop me. I believe, and see my faith through in till the end, Amen!
