Text Matthew 19:23-26
“23 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
How do you feel the first time you came across this passage of the scripture? A positive mind is a mind of possibilities. To persist in this race of faith, you need to cultivate a positive mind. The state of your mind influences your action. The Bible tells us of how we are no longer in the world but have been set apart to live a life of faith/total reliance on God. Even though the challenges of the world may present hopeless situations your way, the light of God through faith can turn whatsoever situation around. It seems impossible for a Camel to pass through the eye of a needle, but the maker of the Camel says it is possible. That job may seem impossible to get right now, all hopes may have been lost about you getting back you health again or becoming pregnant. Listen, the maker of everything in the universe says “IT IS POSSIBLE”. Trust in the Lord with all your hearts, lean not unto your understanding and the Lord will surely direct your paths.
Faith like a mustard seeds starts by believing the possibilities in your impossibilities
Prayer: Lord help my heart to learn to trust you. Help me to know that with you all are possible, therefore, there is no impossibility in my case. Amen!
No matter how long answers to your prayers may take, keep praying and trusting in God, he will surely give you the best
