Belief Brings Possibilities

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – September 9, 2018

By Boyd Bailey

He replied, “‘Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.’” Matthew 17:20

Belief brings possibilities, while unbelief limits possibilities. It is the prison of unbelief that locks up dreams and big visions. Why do we jail what Jesus could do through us? Why do we trust Him with our soul’s salvation but not with our life’s calling? It is forgetting the basic belief in God to do anything that limits the manifestation of grace.

What is the Lord asking you to do that seemed impossible in the past but is knocking on the door of your heart today? What will it take for you to open the door and walk through? Is it enough money? If so, can He provide in ways outside of the conventional system of the world? Yes, of course. Christ can be unconventional in His provision.

Jesus described the degree of His care by contrasting our needs with nature’s nourishment. “If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?” (Matthew 6:30). The possibilities our heavenly Father offers are illustrated by His care of creation.

When faith falls short, we fail to see the extent of God’s ability to engage opportunity. But when we believe with big thoughts, they transcend our meager offerings and latch on to what the Lord can accomplish. Defective faith dies for dread of what might happen, but effective faith thrives over the hope of what can happen. What is the object of your belief? Is it Jesus alone or Jesus plus what your mind can comprehend? Belief trusts Him.

A mind released by God’s revelation is positioned for great things; so by faith ask Him to show you His grand plan for your next season of service for Jesus. Do not allow unbelief to hold you back; instead, embrace the possibilities from your heavenly Father’s portfolio of opportunities. Be open to career transition, mission work, aggressive giving, writing, traveling the world, Bible study in your neighborhood, marriage, and graduate school. Yes, build a bigger business or church, but all for the glory of God. Belief in Him trusts Him.

“‘You are my witnesses,’ declares the Lord, ‘and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me’” (Isaiah 43:10).

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, grow my faith in You, so I can look beyond my limitations and see Your unlimited abilities, in Jesus’ name, amen.


Application

What do I need to give over to God and trust Him with in exchange for eternal possibilities?
