Unlimited Possibilities

Posted on June 3, 2014 at 12:20 AM

 

From the highest

 

mountains in the world, people seek for higher places to climb, When in their

 

heart, It is where the climb always starts. (unknown)

Jesus dangled unlimited

possibilities before the desire of His disciples saying to them in Mark 11:23-24

 “Embrace  God. Really embrace him, and nothing will be

 

too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake

and it’s as good as done." and in verse 24 “Whatever you desire when you pray,

 

believe you receive it and you will have it.” Our only limitation is what we

 

believe. Don’t be afraid to seek the Lord; it is His desire to do great things

 

through you and through me. Even if you fail at times, and you will—don’t quit.

 

Keep moving forward. Never say, “I can’t do it.” Scale the mountain! Don’t run!

 

Step out from behind the veil of uncertainty. Crawl out from under the covers of

 

rationalization. God does miracles—today and everyday. He does not change. You

 

have never tested God’s resources until you have attempted the

impossible.

 

 

 

 

How can we do the impossible? Follow Christ’s example.

 

The miracle life of the Lord was simply a reflection of His private time with

 

God. Jesus spent thirty years getting ready for God to work through Him. He

 

prepared Himself by walking in fellowship with His Heavenly Father and

developing a relationship of intimacy with Him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

E. Stanley Jones said, “The only

 

thing we really believe in is the thing we believe in enough to act upon.” Mark

 

11:23-24 outlines a process that begins with desire. Delight yourself in the

 

Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4). As we delight

 

ourselves in God He places His desires in us. Mountain moving faith grows out of

 

the relationship we develop with the Lord. Desire fuels action. When desire

 

motivates us towards prayer and communion with the Lord, we will experience the

 

power of God at work in our lives (2 Corinthians 13:14). Faith is not a

 

one-night stand. We gain faith through God’s promises and put it into action

 

through prayer. For more than three years Jesus spent 24 hours a day with His

 

disciples, preparing them and shaping their lives. Let’s see—three years is 1095

 

days or 26,280 hours—minus time for sleeping—the disciples did sleep. They slept

when they should have prayed, but Jesus never gave up on them.

 

 

 

 

You

 

can develop mountain moving faith one step at a time. Fight doubt. Doubt limits

 

what what we think God can do in us and what we can do through Him. Spend time

 

with the Lord. Feed your spiritual desire with God’s Word. Learn to be led by

 

the Holy Spirit. And when you sleep through an opportunity, get up and move to

 

the next one Jesus provides (Matthew 26:36-46). He will not quit on

you.

 

 

 

"Faith is confidence in God’s faithfulness to me in an

uncertain world, on an uncharted course, through an unknown future." (Pamela

 

Reeve)
