Jesus replied: It is because you don’t have enough faith! But I can promise you this. If you had faith no larger than a mustard seed, you could tell this mountain to move from here to there. And it would. Everything would be possible for you.
(Matthew 17:20 CEV)
Jesus really got fired up about His disciples getting into the impossible with God, and He wanted them to move in the realm of the impossible. He wants us to move in the realm of the impossible, too. What is the impossible? It is anything that is not possible in the natural or physical world we live in. That which is impossible is that which we know natural laws forbid, our minds cannot reason out, or our physical senses cannot perceive.
Jesus was talking about getting into the spiritual realm of possibility that overrides all natural laws. We get into the impossible when we believe God and His Word with every fiber of our being. What we believe may seem illogical and impossible to human thinking, but it is no challenge to the Creator of the Universe—who just happens to be our Daddy!
We are citizens of the Kingdom of God, dwelling in a place where everything happens by faith in God and His Word. And, as Jesus said, if we can believe, all things are possible to us. What is impossible to the natural man and woman is possible to the spiritual man and woman who believe.
To expand our capacity to believe, we read, study, and meditate on His Word day and night. We commune with our Teacher, the Holy Spirit, and we act according to His leading. Abiding in the Word and following the Spirit get us into the impossible. We begin to see and believe things we never could see and believe before!
Lord, thank you that it is Your will for me, as a citizen of Your kingdom, to walk in the realm of the impossible! Help me to be faithful to meditate in Your Word every day and follow the leading of Your Spirit. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
