But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
My mother couldn’t have children.
She suffered from ovarian cysts and, after 6 years of trying, the doctors told my parents that nothing could be done.
But there was one thing that the medical team didn’t take into consideration–the power of prayer.
My dad and mom went into serious prayer about the issue and God answered. They were blessed with not one… not two… but three children all of whom are following God. What was once considered impossible is now history.
That’s what faith does. It turns tragedy into triumph and transforms victims into victors. If we turn it loose on our circumstances, we’ll realize that impossibilities are really only miracles yet to happen.
The world is full of failure because it has forgotten the power of faith.
But that doesn’t have to be your story.
Believe. With God, all things are still possible.
Faith turns tragedy into triumph and transforms victims into victors. Experience the power of faith.
I’ve heard that expression more times than I can count. But the truth of that statement becomes more real with each day that passes.
It’s especially true in our spiritual lives. Starting each day with an expectation that we will see God move in some way, sets the stage for Him to do what He does best.
Everyday, we Christians face challenges that sometimes leave us bewildered or emotionally-drained. As a result, we often lose sight of the potential that each day holds and start our mornings with a negative mindset.
This outlook is underscored by perpetually pessimistic news, tirades on social media and—worst of all—other people whose gloomy outlooks tend to prevent us from seeing the beauty and power that Christ wants to unveil in and through our lives.
I can’t help but wonder how many of us actually expect to see the miraculous each day, in our own lives. When we pray, are we just itemizing a list of wishes or do we actually expect God to answer?
Let’s change that.
Start your morning by vocalizing that you expect to see God’s loving hand.
Whether He parts the Red Sea of your morning commute, provides you with just enough to cover your next bill or simply whispers an inaudible I love you, you will not be disappointed.
Because you get what you expect. And today, you’re expecting a miracle.
