ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
Mark 9:23 And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for him who believes.”
I’ll never forget the first meeting I had after I returned to New Orleans in 1977. In that first service I gave an altar call and about ten young people gave their lives to Christ. Some sunday school teacher from a local Methodist church had brought his teenagers to the meeting that day, several of them got saved. These teenagers served as the nucleus of our new church, one of them became a pastor in the city and still pastors today.
When we first began Victory Fellowship, we had a sign in front of our church with this verse of scripture, “All things are possible for him who believes”. I remember looking at that sign many times when I was facing difficult times. God always met us. We were living in a season of miracles, people seemed to be getting saved everyday. There were drug users, alcoholics, sex addicts, people with every kind of vice were attracted to our church, God was moving and lives were being changed. There was an electricity in the air, all of us wondered what would happen next. That was a very special season in the life of our church.
Today, God is still the same and His word is still true. “All things are possible for him who believes.” What are you believing God for today? What kind of battle are you engaged in? Do you need a miracle in your life?
It doesn’t take much faith, all it takes is faith like a grain of mustard seed, not very much. Where does this faith come from? Of course it comes from the Lord, it is spiritual in nature. Faith is a gift that flows from the presence of God.
How do I receive this gift? You don’t have to seek faith or try to muster it up. You don’t even have to try to build up your faith, it is a gift.
But you say “How do I receive this gift?”
By getting hold of Jesus, as Paul said “Faith and love are in Christ Jesus”. When you get hold of Him, faith is the result.
When you draw near to God, faith flows like a river. So what is the conclusion? The season of miracles is not over, the Lord is stiring our hearts with His faith again today. Miracles are in the air. “All things are possible to him who believes.”
