"'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for one who believes."
— Mark 9:23

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

A desperate father comes to Jesus with a request for help and says, "But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help." IF there is anything Jesus can do to help? IF? IF! Jesus tells the desperate father that everything is possible for the person who believes. We believe that God can bring healing. We believe that our Father in heaven will act for our best eternal good and the eternal best good of our loved ones in need. We believe, so we ask in faith with a commitment like that of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. These three friends believed that God could spare them from the fiery furnace and confidently told King Nebuchadnezzar, "We serve a God who is able to deliver us, but even if he does not, we will not worship other gods who are false!" (Daniel 3:16-18)

My Prayer...

Now to God, who is able to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we can ask or imagine, be glory ... forever and ever. In the glorious name of Jesus I praise you. Amen. (cf. Ephesians 3:20-21)
