23 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Today’s Inspiration: Mark 9:23 all things are possible to him who believes. Our faith increases when we routinely read the Bible and learn to recognize the hand of God in every situation that affirm our belief that He is source of all good things and our trust that He will prove faithful in taking care of us daily. When you choose to believe you are healed and blessed by the Almighty God, you are free to walk in the wonderful plans He has for your future.
Often the enemy used our close friends or family members to torment and harass us that caused us to doubt God. We should counteract by shaking off the symptoms of pain, hurt, sin, and the burdens of yesteryears. You can only act out of your belief.
Therefore, you should believe in the power and authority bestowed upon you and believe in miracles so that they will follow you. Mark 16:17. The first church was powerful because they believe not on themselves but the power and authority given to them and believe in miracles manifested through them. It’s all about whether you believe in manifesting the miracles of God through you. In fact, signs and wonders follow you when you do not doubt but believe that those things you say will be done, whatever you say will come to pass. Mark 11:23. When you pray, you must believe that your petition had been granted so that your faith becomes a reality. I have seen much miracles manifested through my faith and belief that have sustained me throughout my life. God be praised!
Prayer: Lord I believe that whatever I declared according to Your word, you will grant my heart’s desire for I believe in the power and authority of every word that had been written in the Holy Bible and its miracles that Your name be glorified in the Son of God who gave His life for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy and has to be conquered by love for love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. To nurture the damaged trees of wrong done to us is to be a prisoner of the past. To refuse to forgive is also destructive. Unforgiveness choked the life out of marriage or out of family relationship and friendship. To avoid forgiving would mean imprisoning your emotions.
It costs the Lord Jesus at Cavalry to bring us forgiveness. If we are to bear the image of God we cannot afford not to forgive our offender. Forgiveness carries a condition that it starts with us first to forgive the offender. To accept God’s forgiveness and to refuse to forgive our offenders is a wicked act as Jesus explained in the parable of unforgiven servant in Matthew 18:21-35. When you don’t forgive and you choose to be bitter against the offender, you have made yourself a slave to the offender.
