Nothing Impossible

July 20, 2011

Matthew 17:20 AMP … He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

Living faith is
Abiding vitally untied to the vine.

Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. -Jn 15:4-5 AMP

To him who believes
… who has a living faith
… who has faith, confidence and a firmly relying trust in Jesus
All things are possible!

All things are possible to him who believes. Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” -Mk 9:23-24

Live in Me, and I will live in you
that My joy will live and endure in you,
and that your joy may be full, complete, perfect, lacking nothing.

Living faith produces the fruit of joy; everlasting joy. -Jn 15:16

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. -Ps 16:11

These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. -Jn 15:11

Don’t be afraid; just believe. -Mk 5:36

Just Believe!

July 8, 2011

The Lord has been encouraging me with the resurrection of Jairus daughter Mark 5:21-24, 35-43 along with this scripture:

Mark 16:18 … they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

It’s not a coincidence that this was the plea of Jairus for his daughter to Jesus, to come lay hands and make her well –Mk 5:23

Remember also, Jairus daughter looked already dead. Because of this many tried to discourage Jairus from asking Jesus to come. Jairus did not stop – he brought Jesus anyway.

Don’t listen to the “world” or be discouraged that things look dead
– focus on Jesus.
Don’t be afraid; Just believe!  –Mk 5:35-36

Trust Jesus to come and bring life where it looks like death has already won. –Mk 5:41

Get ready to be completely astonished! –Mk 5:42
