“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23, NKJV
Believe when all of the odds are against you. Believe when the world isn’t for you. These words are simple, but true. When you believe, Jesus breathes the breath of life inside of you. Believe when the mountains that you face are too big through your eyes. Believe when they say you will never amount to anything. Believe when your family and friends turn against you. Believe when they say, “It won’t be long before she falls again.” Believe in Jesus when they tell you that you are crazy. Believe when all you can see are dark clouds. Believe when there seems to be no way out. Believe even when people say, “You are worthless.” Believe in Jesus when they tell you that you will always be in addiction. Believe when your children have been taken from you due to your poor choices. Believe in Jesus when you have lost your way. Believe when you think you can’t go on one more day. Believe when you have lost everything time and time again. Believe when you are discouraged. Believe when you are facing a struggle that holds no view. Believe in that something inside of you. For God sent His Son Jesus. Jesus believed enough to die for us. For He who sent us makes no mistakes. His Spirit within us gives us the faith. There is nothing we can’t accomplish through Jesus Christ, from the earliest dawn to the darkest of nights. He has a way of breaking through the darkness. He did it for me, and He will do it for you. Jesus is our Helper. He is our Friend. He is our Healer and Deliverer til the very end. Call on Him, He will always be there, to lift you up and show you He cares. He makes your crooked paths straight and puts hope in your heart. He is our Blessed Assurance and has been from the start. Remember the One who has always held your hand. Believe in His purpose and His unfailing plan.
Prayer: Father, lately I have focused more on my circumstances rather than You. I have called on my ability to do things instead of Yours. Today I choose to believe in all that You have for me no matter what. I love You and am so grateful for Your faithfulness. Thanks for always believing in me. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
