There are some things that I am believing God for. But If I look at the obstacles that could potentially hinder the requests that I placed before God, then those requests would seem impossible.
I cannot deny that God has a proven track record of doing the seemingly impossible in my life. So you know what? This time, I CHOOSE to magnify God’s ability to move every obstacle instead of magnifying the obstacles themselves. I choose to amplify truth over fact: God’s truth over the world’s facts.
What are you trusting God for? Healing, a job, salvation of a family member, protection of a loved one, financial stability?
“Believe ye that I am able to do this? ….According to your faith be it unto you.” – Matthew 9:28-29
In Matthew 9, two blind men followed Jesus and asked Him for their sight to be restored. God responded with the question, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” As soon as they responded, “Yea, Lord”, their sight was restored. In Matthew chapter 9, this isn’t the only miracle we see. Jesus was originally on his way to raise a ruler’s daughter, all because the ruler BELIEVED that He could do it. On His way to raise the ruler’s daughter, He healed the woman who had the issue of blood for twelve years, because SHE BELIEVED that if she simply touched Him she would be made whole. By the end of the chapter, the ruler’s daughter was raised, the woman no longer had an issue of blood, and the men’s sight was restored.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20 (NIV)
If you believe in God’s Word and what He did for these individuals, then trust Him now. If God has answered seemingly impossible requests for you in the past, then trust Him now. The question is – is God ABLE to do what you’ve asked? If your response is, “Yes,” then trust Him now.
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” – Ephesians 3:20
He IS indeed able. To help us all remember this truth, allow me to share one of my favorite Darwin Hobbs songs with you. The chorus says:
God is able to do just what He said He would do.
He’s gonna fulfill every promise to you.
Don’t give up on God. ‘Cause He won’t give up on you.
Enjoy and be encouraged :-)
