THE ONLY THING STOPPING THE IMPOSSIBLE FROM BECOMING POSSIBLE IN OUR LIVES IS UNBELIEF.
19 Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your UNBELIEF; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
I believe JESUS gave us the key here in this scripture to overcome our UNBELIEF.
In verse 21 when He says, "However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting", I believe something miraculous takes place. When you fast and pray, it boost your confidence to BELIEVE God. It opens your eyes and ears to see and hear like you never have before. When you die to your flesh, your spirit man takes off and your capability to truly believe what God is saying becomes real to you. You will never be satisfied for less than the best, because it is a covenant promise for you to have the very best from God!
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
EVERY RAVINE WILL BE FILLED, AND EVERY MOUNTAIN AND HILL WILL BE BROUGHT LOW; THE CROOKED WILL BECOME STRAIGHT, AND THE ROUGH ROADS SMOOTH;
THE IMPOSSIBLE HAPPENED!
THE CONCEPTION OF JESUS
In this scripture the angel of the Lord told Mary that her pregnancy would be impossible with man, but that all things are possible with God! Often, we believe that these miraculous and impossible things took place in the Bible, but we struggle with believing for the impossible in our own lives. We need to say as Mary said, let it be unto me according to your word!
34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?”
35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.
36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”
38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
27 But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.
27 But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.
WHEN SCRIPTURE REPEATS ITSELF LIKE THIS -LISTEN!
Here is an example of the impossible taking place in a dream the Lord gave me a few years ago:
I walked into a room that was a total mess. There were clothes and dishes everywhere! I spoke to the clothes, to be folded and put away. Without touching anything, the clothes obeyed all by themselves. They were folded and put in their proper places. The same thing took place with the dishes and whatever else I spoke to in the room. It was like a scene out of Mary Poppins! Then, found myself standing in front of a locked door. I struggled, trying to get it to open with no success, so I asked the Holy Spirit to come and help me open the door.
As I reflect on this dream, I see where I have grown in belief and authority in my own walk with God. That being said, this dream serves as a constant reminder that I must have the Holy Spirit help me. In the dream, I stepped out in faith commanding things to happen, and they had to obey! I was able to do that because God has given us the ability to speak to things and they MUST MOVE! But when I came to the door, it wouldn't budge. I knew I needed help so, I cried out to the Holy Spirit and asked Him to help me open the door. I knew He would because the Bible tells us that He is here to be THE HELPER.
Have I taken the proper steps?
Have I fasted and prayed?
Do I really believe in my heart so that I may receive?
Am I ready to ask Holy Spirit to help unlock the door I can’t?
Lord, I see where it says in Your Word, "I believe but help my unbelief". Right here, right now, I ask you the same thing. Give me an obedient heart, God. I want all that you have for me! Give me the strength to obey and take the steps I need to take so that I might enter into my covenant blessings and walk in the authority that You have given me in Jesus to move mountains. I cry out upon the Holy Spirit to help me,In Jesus name amen!
