Mark 9:23- “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” (New Living Translation)

 If I can, or if he can, for that is the question. If I can accomplish the impossible, is it through my own strength? If I fear no evil and walk circumspect through this world, is my discernment my own? If I close all business transactions, was my acumen honed through my own intellect? If these questions sound unsure then they bear uncertainty that we are not living this life alone. Therefore, if it is not I, then who aids us within the realms of impossibility? Who is taking our crippling fears and standing us upright? Who has given us the intellect to think, function, and deliberate. If we don’t know, then may we learn of this force or power. May we ask of his name and follow his decrees. For the man who has given us strength, love, and discipline is Jesus. Therefore, may we not question, nor live within doubt. For God has already seen this world and figured it all out. Amen
