All things are possible to him that believeth. Mark 9:23
God is simply asking us to trust Him. He then promises “Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in My (Jesus) name, He will give it to you.” John 16:23. Now, our asking should be according to the will of God for our lives. As our minds and lives more reflect His, we will begin to experience a oneness of mind and purpose as Christ did when He walked this earth. This will make true for His followers this admonition from Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” Asking for a new car may not be in God’s plans for your near future however stepping out of that dead end job where your boss challenges your faith every chance he/she gets may be. Going across the street to visit a neighbor may also be. Leaving an extra tip with an inspiring note for a waitress or waiter may be. Remember God has a plan for you even when your plans begin to fall apart. Jer 29:11. Have faith in the one who spoke this world into existence, who by His breath created all that is, and in who our trust has a solid, never to fail foundation. John 14:6.
“Through faith God’s children have “subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.” And through faith we today are to reach the heights of God’s purpose for us.” –ML
Ninety-nine percent just won’t do unless you’re expecting the ordinary. Our God IS GOD. Trust Him with 100% and expect the extraordinary.
“You must learn the simple art of taking God at His word; then you have solid ground beneath your feet.”
