‘If You Can…’
But if You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us. Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:22-23

  Beloved sons and daughters, what a joyous season we’re living in as the Church right now.  This joy is not based on all the things going on right now in our world, but in regards to the Hand of God moving and about to move upon all the earth.  With all my heart, I believe that the Lord is faithful to fulfill what He’s spoken to the prophets about a great outpouring that will sweep across the nations of the earth, bringing in a Great Harvest unlike we have ever seen before!

These three words rung loudly in my spirit as I was spending time with the Lord recently…..”If you can.”  In this passage in Mark 9, two parents brought their son in great need of deliverance to Jesus and said these very three words.  Jesus responded with the same three words and added the invitation to believe in Him and to have faith.  In verse 24, the father prays in humility to Jesus, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”  I sense so strongly that this is the prayer in the heart of the Church right now, that despite what we see and hear news of, we are to believe in Jesus for the impossible, not boxing around it how everything should look, but rather trusting in HIM and believing in HIM to do what only HE can do!

I feel Jesus is saying to His Body, ‘If you can BELIEVE……..’  With His statement comes the invitation of His grace to believe and cry out for Jesus to help any and all areas where we may have unbelief.  As we anchor into to trusting Him even more, and place our confidence that HE can, HE will & that HE has already overcome, our capacity for Hope, Faith & Love increases exponentially!  Your hope level determines your influence level, and your level of faith opens wider the pathway of the supernatural in your life while you grow even deeper in love with the Lord as you believe and trust in Him more and more, deeper and deeper.  Here is the place that the problem seen becomes the possibility seized!  People of God, let’s choose in this season to cry out to God our belief in HIM, while in humility acknowledge any areas where we need to grow past our unbelief and into greater Faith, Hope & Love in and with Jesus.  Our God is faithful who also will do it!  Let’s soar on the winds of hope as our belief in God’s ability drowns out all doubt and unbelief in what is seen so we can live and reign from the unseen knowing truly, that with God all things are possible.
