Without faith it is impossible to please God but with faith in God nothing is impossible. Nothing is impossible for the one who believes. Today I’ve been reading and studying the Book of Matthew, specifically Chapters 3-9. Throughout these chapters Jesus performs a variety of different miracles and heals a significant amount of people. What I noticed throughout these accounts where the miracles were performed was of course the love and grace of Jesus, but also incredible faith by the people who were looking to be healed. Faith causes things to happen. Faith causes God to move and to act in our lives. I don’t know what you are going through. I don’t know what situation or circumstance you are in, but I do know that if you want your situation to change you must first BELIEVE that it can be changed in the mighty name of Jesus. We have to have faith beyond the facts. WE have to have faith like the 2 blind men had, who went to Jesus and asked Him to restore their sight. Jesus asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”, and they replied “Yes, Lord” with no hesitation. Jesus touched their eyes and said, “According to your FAITH let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:27-30). It was by FAITH in the Lord that they received their vision again. Faith causes God to move. We have to learn to have faith like the sick woman in the crowd who came to Jesus and grabbed the edged of his cloak and said to herself “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” she knew that if she could just get a touch of Him if she could just get into His presence the healing that she had been longing for, for 12 years would be given to her and it was. Jesus replied back to her saying, “your FAITH has healed you” (Matthew 9: 20-22). Faith causes God to move. If you are weakening in your faith or just struggling to trust God at this particular point in your life I would encourage you to delve into His word and to seek Him earnestly. I would encourage you to go back and read accounts from the Book of Matthew that deal with a lot of the miracles that Jesus performed. I would also encourage you to reflect back on your own life and some of the things that God has already brought you through. Train your mind to think positive and to have faith in God. I know for whatever reason it’s so much easier for us to think negatively than it is for us to think positively, but we as Christians have to remember who it is that we serve…We serve the Most High God. The Maker and Creator of All Things. We serve the same God who causes the sun to rise in the east and to set in the west. We serve the same God who binds the chains of the Pleiades, the same God who can loosen Orion’s belt. We serve the same God who brings forth the constellations in their seasons. What reason do we have to believe that He can’t bring us out this addiction? What reason do we have to believe that He can’t heal our mother or our father in the hospital. What reason do we have to believe that He won’t help our child to get on and stay on the path of purity? What reason do we have to believe that He is not able to do all things? We have no reason not to believe in Him and His abilities. Study His word and look at His track record. Reflect on your own life and look at Gods track record. It speaks for itself. He has never disappointed us, He has never wronged us, He has never hurt us, or done anything other than show us an abundance of love, grace, and mercy. God is able. You have to submit yourself wholly to Him. You have to seek Him earnestly, ask Him for what it is that you need. And when you ask, you have to believe and have complete faith that it will come to pass if it is His will. Then you must patiently wait and rest in His presence. If you want your circumstance to change you must first BELIEVE that it can be changed in the mighty name of Jesus.
