If you follow, read or watch the news, it’s hard to remain positive. Like the down trodden in this life, hope can disappear for extended periods of time. Thus, many are left alone, stuck in an impossible situation praying for a miracle.
He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you,” Matthew 17:20.
For some the story of David and Goliath is nothing more than a fairy tale, a figment of one’s imagination. Yet, history conveys the truth found in the Old Testament, 1 Samuel 17. While David’s size was an obstacle, a midget compared to the giant mocking God on a daily basis, his experience as a shepherd prepared him for this battle. Against all odds, David shot down Goliath with his sling shot opening the door to become king of Israel.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father,” John 14:12.
When Jesus traveled throughout the Middle East during the first century, doubt was prevalent. Doing the impossible was a dream blocked by the mountain known as reality. Thus, Jesus found it necessary to regularly talk about the power of faith and belief. As Jesus began to cure, heal and perform miracles, the impossible seemed to be within reach. Therefore, don’t let doubt keep you trapped. Rather, cry out of Jesus so that the God of the impossible will return to perform another miracle.
