My Own Belief Will Unleash the Power of God

In review of Matthew 19:26 it says, “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”

Bottom Line:
In our own power we can do nothing, but with God everything is possible.

What this means to me:
On my own power I can do nothing, but with God all things are possible.

This verse reminds me that everything is possible with God. “Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’” (Matthew 19:26 NIV). Jesus also said, “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29).

Lots of scriptures tell me that God wants to use me. That He wants to bless me and do amazing things in my life. He wants me to be a world changer. But he’s waiting for me to trust him first. I need to stop saying, “I can’t” because all things are possible with God.

Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” (TLB). Ultimately God knows I have enormous potential, far beyond what I could ever imagine. God wants to use me, and according to my faith it will be done.

The opposition to my faith is my own unbelief. I’m the biggest problem in my life to being used. While there are a lot of things I don’t have any control over, I can choose to believe God. It’s ultimately my choice. In order to have God to do big things in life, I need to start believing.

In summary, on my own power I can do nothing, but with God all things are possible. God I thank you for this reminder this morning that through you everything in possible. Through you I can do amazing things, but I need to put my trust in your first and not give in to my own unbelief.  One area in my life that I have struggled with is getting to know new people and openly share my faith. I need to get over my own unbelief and uncomfortableness and honestly believe that God can use me. I can use what I learned last week in that part of my faith is thanking God in advance for making it true and happening in my life.
