Mark 9:23 – “‘If You can’?” Yeshua said to him. “All things are possible for one who believes!” TLV
Last time we considered the reality that God is the Creator of All Things! We looked at the truth that He is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient. Today, I would like for us to take another step, in learning “How To Trust God.” How can we trust God more and more in our lives and rest in His Promises?
Consider the Success of God.
The Bible, history, and personal experience testify to the incredible success record of God. He has no record of failure! He did not fail Abraham on Mt. Moriah when He revealed Himself as Jehovah-Jireh the Provider. He did not fail the Three Hebrew Children in the fiery furnace when He revealed Himself as their Protector. He did not fail the woman with the issue of blood when He demonstrated Himself as Jehovah-Rophe. He is the Great I AM and whatever we need He is, He was, and He will be.
The Gospel of Mark records nineteen miracles that demonstrate the supernatural power Jesus exercised. Eight of them prove that the man of faith has power over disease. Five of them demonstrate the power of the person of God over nature. Four of them reveal the authority the believer has over the demonic and two show the power of Jesus’ conquest over death. Jesus never fails and in Christ, we can do all things through the God who never fails.
Consider the Truth that God’s Very Being Denies the Possibility of Failure.
There is no disease that is unconquerable. There is no task that is impossible to God. Death could not hold Jesus and it will not hold us. Jesus said in the Gospels that He has given us His Power and Authority over the powers of darkness. There is Power in His Name, Power in His Word, and Authority in the Blood of Jesus. He cannot fail, therefore, if we abide in Him and His word abides in us then we should not fail, because it is Christ in us that we live.
Consider That His Ministry is to You and Me – It Is Personal.
He desires to operate through us through the Power of the Holy Spirit. He said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to the one who believes.” In Isaiah 53 we are informed that He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and the chastisement of our peace was upon Him and by His stripes, we are healed. His ministry comes from Him to us and then through us. We are vessels. He has paved the way for us to do the works He did and greater works.
Therefore, if we see in our hearts and minds who He is and realize His unfailing success we will be encouraged. If we take not of His inability to fail and realize that we are in Him, and we live our lives through faith in and of Him, we will be emboldened. If we realize that He came to minister to and through each of us, we will become those who depend on and trust Him explicitly.
We can depend upon His ability to do what He said. We can believe that He cares for us and is concerned about every situation we encounter. If we present ourselves before Him expecting Him to do what He Promised, He will do what He Promised. He will honor your faith and do abundantly above that which you could ask or think. That is a life-changing revelation.
God bless you as you enjoy your new walk of faith in Jesus!
