“Everything is possible for one who believes.”

“Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23

“Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?” So they rolled the stone aside… Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!” And the dead man came out, his hands and feet bound in grave clothes, his face wrapped in a head cloth. “Unwrap him and let him go.” John 11:40, 43,44

When Lazerus died, Jesus said to Martha that she would see the glory of God. But there was a condition: she must believe. Belief activates the miraculous. Unbelief negates and nullifies the answer to our prayers. When we are praying for lost souls that we earnestly love, we can pray, as the distraught father prayed to Jesus, “I do believe; help me in my unbelief.” Jesus immediately answered that prayer and the boy was delivered.

Is there a loved one in your life who appears hopeless today? If we believe, nothing is impossible. Let us follow Jesus’ lead, for we are His disciples. We will speak to that impossible situation which shows no sign of life, no pulse, no hint of hope. We will command life into that place of death today.


I believe that I will see the goodness of God in this impossible situation. I believe that I can move mountains with my faith. Thank you that you have given me a capacity to have faith, indeed you have given me faith as a gift. Father, I need you now. Accelerate my faith, heighten it to new levels, and deepen it so that it grows even deeper than the roots of the mountain I am facing.

I receive the gift of faith. I receive the grace you have given me, making me, an unworthy sinner, worthy of receiving everything you died to give me.
