We serve an unlimited, omnipotent God. Mark 9:23 says “all things are possible to him that believes.” What’s important is the ‘all things’ is limited to only those items that can be believed. Jesus is saying, “If you can believe it, then it is possible.” The limitation is on our believing. If you can believe it, it will happen.” God is saying, “I have no limitations, if you can believe in me, I can do it.” The difficulty then is not with God, but it is with us, our getting to a place of undeniable faith. Faith is the ability for man to trust what God can and will do. It is trusting God’s faithfulness and His character and being fully assured that what God had promised, He is able to perform. God’s promises are His will, so we should know what is available to trust in and believe for by reading the Word of God.
Trusting God is not a spectator sport – it is something that all Believers are to do every day. Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” The key part of that verse is not to lean on our own understanding. It’s impossible for man to fully understand the mind of God because God’s thoughts are so much higher than ours. After all, He is the creator who called everything into existence. Our part is to trust Him whole heartily and believe that He is able to do far more than what we can ask or think.
Trusting God should be as natural to us as breathing. Sadly, many Christians get into doubt and unbelief when they believe the lies of Satan. John 10:10 tells us that ‘the enemy comes to steal, and to kill and to destroy.” We must get to that place where we are totally dependent and confident in God. God wants us to have a relationship with Him and a major part of any relationship is trust. Trust God all the days of your life and you will never have to fear or worry about anything you face in life.
