Believing God for the Possible

… If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.—Mark 9:23 (KJV)

What is impossible to man is possible to God. What makes it possible is the power of God to provide and produce. Someone once said that “man’s extremity is God’s opportunity.” I understand where they were coming from with that statement, and I am not saying they were incorrect but I am saying they were very possibly incomplete with that statement. What I mean by that is you do not have to reach your extreme to experience the power of God!

Our responsibility is to believe God from the beginning—straight out of the gate! If we fail to do so, if we fail to believe God from the beginning, we introduce turbulence into the atmosphere of our area of operation. In other words, failure to trust God, when facing difficult circumstances—introduces more difficulty, instead of presenting you with the answer.

Sometimes, we try to operate in our own understanding, lean upon our experiences, and intellect, to navigate life’s waters—instead of our faith in God. When we do this, we take what is supposed to be a spiritual thing—our believing and trusting in God—and we introduce to it this natural, fleshly, atmosphere that creates turbulence in our lives.

In other words, instead of just trusting God and His Word to make it through whatever you may be facing from the start, we try to rely on our experiences that are born in the sense realm which is this natural world. God gave us our natural five physical senses—the ability to hear, see, smell, taste and touch—to navigate and function in this physical world we live in and not the world of the spirit.

Although God gave us our natural physical senses, He also gave us faith to operate within the world of the spirit—which is where God resides! The spiritual realm is the source of all we are surrounded by in this world. When we have faith or exercise our belief in God and His Word, we not only come in contact with God but we also come in contact with all He is capable of being for us!

This is the realm of possibility! The world we live in is full of limits and impossibilities—but there are no impossibilities with our God! When we believe God, we receive God’s power to make the impossible possible! Whatever may seem impossible to you at this moment, face it with faith in the power of God to turn it around and see what happens!

    This week, I’ve been doing a couple of things. I’m believing for a new car, so I’ve started looking at ads, to see what type of deals there are and to get pricing options. I’ve also been looking into how I can increase revenue and decrease any expenditures.I’ve also been approaching my work, according to Deuteronomy 28. It say that God will bless the works of my hands and what I set my hands to will prosper. I’ve been approaching my work as if that were true! If we don’t believe that, how can it benefit us?

      I believe you hit the point directly! To believe the Word is true is to believe in the “truthfulness” and “faithfulness” of God! Our ability to receive is based entirely on how we believe. Thank you for adding to this!

    Sebastian,
    Thank you for the reminder. As I am on my journey I am learning to Let Go of my intellect and completely Let God drive. Sometimes I forget and try to be the pilot. I am thankful God has not given up on me.
    Blessings
