Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
When we're willing to give God a chance, He will give us a chance -- many chances. He will give us abundant opportunities. He will open doors that man tried to shut. He will place us before great kings. There will be nothing He wouldn't do for us. Unfortunately, many times we limit what He's willing and able to do for us by not having mustard seed faith. That's all it takes to put our trust in Him and to believe that what we desire will come to fruition. We have to believe it. Isn't it amazing the people who don't? Does it not leave you a bit perplexed when people truly do not think God will do what He said He would do? Listen, I get it. I used to be there too, but now I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God "is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us" (Ephesians 3:20). So that faith allows me to go forward with all that I know He told me to do. That faith allows me to take chances and risks in the name of Jesus and I know He will have me covered on all sides. That's what faith is all about. We can't play it safe all the time. We have to take wise and Godly chances, because growth and progress live there.
What did God tell you to do?
