Everything is possible for one who believes in the Lord!
“ If you can?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, peace be upon you in Jesus matchless name!
The subject verse (Mark 9:23) calls for the test of belief and faith in God. Here Jesus, clearly puts the onus on us saying – “If you can?“. The Lord literally says that everything can be done. But it is for those who believe. The belief is not in themselves but in the Living God who is ever present with His children. Therefore, if we can believe then everything seems achievable or doable. Because it is in our Lord we believe and He does all things according to His rich mercies. As the Scripture says, trust in the Lord and lean not on our own understanding.
5. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
6. in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.Proverbs 3:5-6
In the first place, let us first submit to the Almighty God. For He is the one who enables us to contend with the problems or difficulties. The father of the boy who was possessed with the deaf and mute spirit came to Jesus. As the Lord’s disciples tried and could not drive out the spirit; the boy’s father was doubtful of deliverance. Therefore, Jesus asked the boy’s father if he can believe (as said in the subject verse). Finally, the boy was made alright when his father believed and asked Jesus to help him to overcome unbelief.
Therefore beloved, if you are also struggling with the unbelief or faithlessness then submit to the Lord first. By prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your requests in the mighty and matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
