Whatever you want God to do in your life, you have to believe it can happen for you. In Matthew 19:26, "Jesus looked at them [the disciples] and said, “with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” 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 no man can 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 the faithless person 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). Consequently, faith allows us to go forward with all that God told us to do. Faith allows us to take chances and risks in the name of Jesus and when we do that, God will have us 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 lives in risks -- calculated -- thought-through -- wise risks. What did God tell you to do? Whatever it is, just know that it is possible.
