Do you have faith?
September 30, 2010
And Jesus said to him, "‘If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes."
Today's verse is one of the greatest verses in the Bible. But what does it mean?
First, let me tell you what it doesn't mean. It doesn't mean that God's going to give you anything you believe. You can't just believe that God's going to give you a brand new Rolls Royce. That's not what he's saying.
Here's what Jesus is teaching. Don't miss this! If you believe, then God can do anything in your life! If you believe. you see, God is able to do all things, and he does them according to his plan and according to his purpose and according to his will.
The way that God is released… the way his power is released in your life and mine… is through faith! If you believe God can do anything.
So let me ask you, "How much faith do you have? Do you believe?" Whether you know it or not, you need faith. You need faith just to believe in God every day.
Now, perhaps you think you've got it all together. You may think you're strong enough and powerful enough and good enough to make it on your own. But you're not.
You need faith! It's through faith in Jesus Christ that you're enabled to accomplish things you never dreamed possible! If you can believe, all things are possible!
YOU NEED FAITH JUST TO BELIEVE IN GOD EVERY DAY.
