FAITH TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE
Scripture: Matthew 17:14-21
“And Jesus said unto them, because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain,remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove, and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20 (KJV)
Feedback: How refreshing was your personal time with God?
Faith can be referred to as believing in God and what he can do, and acting on that belief. You cannot profess your faith when you do not act accordingly. It is important to recognize that the life of a Christian will amount to nothing without an unwavering belief in God’s ability to do the impossible because without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews. 11:6)
The disciples of Jesus were not able to cast out the lunatic spirit from the little boy because they did not act in faith. They prayed and commanded the spirit but they did not believe that it would work. They were acting without faith. Jesus said if you believe and your corresponding action is in line with your belief, you will move mountains (Mark 11:23). Your action should be preceded by your faith.
Have you been faced with any form of mountain in your life just as the disciples faced the lunatic spirit? Are you passing through any challenges presently in your life? Jesus said if you believe without doubt and match your faith with action, nothing shall be impossible. You have the faith to do the impossible. You have the faith to break down every wall of limitation hindering your progress and upliftment. Act on your faith and bring it to pass.
