Everything Is Possible
"Everything is possible for one who believes." (Mark 9:23 NIV)
To live like Jesus, you have to live with possibility.
This is the faith factor of living: You see the possibilities in life because you have faith. The Bible says, "The just shall live by faith," "Without faith it is impossible to please God," "Whatever is not of faith is sin," "According to your faith it will be done unto you." Mark 9:23 says, "Everything is possible for one who believes" (NIV).
I believe that followers of Jesus should be the most innovative and creative people on the planet because we serve a God who says all things are possible. The most narrow-minded people I know are people who don't believe in God. Why? Because their possibilities are limited by their unbelief. When you put your faith in God, it expands your horizon. You can be much more creative and innovative.
You know what the greatest sin is? It's not the one you're thinking of. The greatest sin is unbelief - not trusting the God who made you. He made everything on the planet. He made everything in the universe. Everything you have, you owe to him. It all came from God. You wouldn't have anything, not even your life if it weren't for him. Why would you not trust him?
When you have unbelief, it limits your life.
The more you believe and trust God, the more limitless your possibilities become for your family, your career - for your life!
How would it make you feel if God showed you what you could have accomplished in life if you had just believed him a little bit more?
