If You Only Believe All Things Are Possible

Advertisements

Have you ever desperately needed something? And no matter how hard you tried, it seemed as though you would never obtain the thing you desired? Are you up against a problem that seems to have no possible solution? Be encouraged to know that all things are possible to you if you only believe. Our God is a God of impossibilities, and He delights in doing the impossible for those who love Him.

The Impossible Is Achievable

There is a story in the 9th chapter of the Book of Mark, in which a father came face-to-face with the impossible (Mark 9:14-29). This father went to everyone he thought could help him. However, one was able to help him, that is until he brought his problem to Jesus. An evil spirit often tormented this father’s son. The evil spirit would often overpower his son. It would cause him to foam from the mouth, gnash his teeth, and become rigid. Many times the evil spirit attempted to kill his son by throwing him to the ground, into the water, and even into the fire. The father realized that he was powerless to help his son, so he brought him to Jesus.

When the evil spirit in the boy saw Jesus, it convulsed the boy and threw him to the ground. As the father watched his son wallow helplessly on the ground, foaming at the mouth, he said to Jesus, “If You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” Jesus answered, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” When the boy’s father heard Jesus’ reply, he immediately cried out, and with tears streaming down his face he said, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

If You Can Believe

The father acknowledged that he believed Jesus could heal his son, so why would he ask Jesus to help his unbelief? Is it possible to believe and still have unbelief? The answer is yes. In difficult and desperate situations, we do it all the time. How many times have you read “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes, we are healed? (Isaiah 53:5)” Yet you might still be suffering from some type of sickness or disease.

Although your faith is in the finished work of Christ, you don’t focus your faith on believing that God loves you enough to deliver you from your impossible situation. It is not a question of whether God can do anything to help our seemingly impossible situations, but rather it is whether we can believe He will help us.

Perhaps you have been praying in faith for healing or deliverance from an addiction and you have not seen results. Rather than become complacent or slack in your praying, just ask the Lord to help your unbelief. Do not allow doubt and despair to rob you of your faith in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus defeated the enemy. That means he defeated poverty, sickness, addiction, and anything that comes against you. When you find yourself in an impossible situation, don’t just say, “I have faith.” A smidgen of unbelief will make your faith of non-effect. Ask God to help your unbelief and then allow Jesus to fix it.

Willing To Recover From Emotional/Psychological Trauma?
Read this👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽

Emotional trauma is the result of stressful events that shatter your sense of security, making you feel helpless in a dangerous world; it can leave you struggling with memories and anxiety that won’t go away.
Emotional/psychological trauma could be caused by accident, injury, an unexpected violent attack, living in a neighboring known for crime, battling a life threatening illness; it could also be as a result of experiencing traumatic events that occur repeatedly like domestic violence, sexual abuse, bullying, loneliness, and addiction. It could also be caused by the sudden death of a loved one or deeply disappointing experience.

What are the symptoms of trauma?
*Anxiety and panic attacks; anger and irritability
*Fear, emotional numbing,depression and confusion
*Racing heart beats, mood swings, muscle tension and agitation
*Shame, guilt, feelings of sadness and hopelessness
*Fatigue, feeling of worthlessness, withdrawing from people.
*Ache and pains, obsessions and feeling of being overwhelmed.

What do you do to recover from emotional trauma?
1. Don’t isolate: Make an effort to maintain your relationships and avoid spending too much time alone
2. You don’t have to talk about the trauma all the time
3. Participate in social activities.
4. Join a support group for trauma survivors: connecting with them help reduce the sense of isolation; and hearing how others cope could help in your own recovery.
5. Volunteer to help others: In fact, this is a great way to challenge the sense of hopelessness that often accompanies trauma. Remind yourself of your strengths and reclaim your sense of power by helping others.
6. Make new friends if you live far away from family and friends; and avoid toxic people.
7. Self regulate your nervous system: No matter how agitated, nervous, or out of control you feel; it’s important you know that you can calm yourself.
8. Take care of your health
9. Get plenty of sleep
10. Avoid alcohol and drugs as their use can worsen your trauma symptoms, and increase feelings of depression, anxiety and isolation.
11. Eat a well balanced diet to keep your energy up and minimize mood swings.
12. Reduce stress by relaxation techniques such as meditation, deep breathing exercises and schedule time for activities that bring joy to you such as your favorite hobbies.
13. Forgive all hurts and forget the past as this can also worsen the symptoms.

Recovery from trauma takes time, and everyone heals differently. So, avoid being negative or hard on yourself.

Beyond all the tips mentioned above, is the power of God to heal your broken heart and mend your broken life in Jesus’ name.

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Isaiah 53:5
But, for you to be healed with His stripes, you need to be reconciled with Him.
Jesus is the only Mediator between God and man; and you can only be reconciled to God if you believe in Jesus; in what He accomplished on your behalf. What did He do? He, being the Son of God and the Mediator between you and God, paid the price of your iniquities(sin) by leaving His abode in Heaven, became flesh, at the appointed time, He was betrayed, crucified, died and was buried; but He rose on the third day granting victory to whoever believes in Him. He was sinless but He tasted death for you and me. He paid the ultimate price to grant us access to the Father and to His Kingdom because no one can access the Father without Him.
He says : “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man cometh to the Father but by me.” John 14:6
We can’t access God’s Kingdom with good works, morals and religious activities alone; they are not enough to save your soul and reconcile you with your Maker, because it is written: “For all have sinned, and have come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
So, you simply need to believe in Jesus, repent of your sin, and be saved
“Whosoever call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
Talk to Him and He will heal you.
