Believe It!

There’s a popular saying in the church that goes, “There’s nothing too hard for God.”  We Christians like throwing that phrase around.  We say it with our chest puffed out because the phrase reiterates that the God we serve is so powerful, nothing can stop Him, nothing can beat Him, and nothing can make Him fail.

Yet, when problems come our way—I mean serious problems—why do we get so fearful?  Why do we worry?  Why do we stress wondering how we’re going to make it through?  We’re the same folk who boast that our God can do anything, but our ‘big’ problems make us shake in our boots.

Do we really believe there’s nothing too hard for God?

When you believe something, you’re at rest.  You’re at peace.  Right now, I believe that my chair is going to continue holding me up.  I’m not worrying about falling on the floor in the next moment; I’m not stressing out about how to make this chair strong enough to hold me.  I’m at peace.  I’m not even thinking about it.  I believe in the strength of this chair to hold my weight.

If we can put simple faith in a chair, how much more should we be able to put faith in our God?  If He told us something, why should we not believe Him?  If He made a promise, who are we to think that it will not be fulfilled?

Still, we do it every day.  We face a problem and try to take it on by ourselves because deep down we’re not fully sure that God is really able.  We look at the size of our challenge and get intimidated.  We forget how great our God is, and we succumb to fear.  We worry instead of standing on God’s Word.

Today, take a moment and check your faith level.  Do you really believe that God can do it?  Be honest.  And if you don’t believe, bring your doubts to God!  He is very loving and will honor your honesty, and then He will prove His Word to you.  He will show you that, yes, He can handle it.

There is nothing too hard for God.  We just have to give Him an opportunity to showcase His strength.

And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. (Mark 10:27 KJV)

Dear Daddy, 

Help me to believe in all that You are.  Help me to trust You in all things and to not lean unto my own understanding.  You have done so much for me already, and I know that You will always be there for me.  Strengthen my faith and help me to cast all my cares on You, believing that You will continue to care for me.   In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ladies, I EMPOWER you to believe that nothing is impossible with the Lord.  What He has promised, He will do just for you!  Stand in faith.  Your God has your back.

What are you believing God for?
