He Can Do It!
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” (Mark 9:23 NIV)
A father wanted Jesus to help his troubled son but wasn’t sure if it could be done. Maybe the problem was too difficult even for the miracle worker from Nazareth. His heart was broken and his only hope seemed to be Jesus. He cried out and said, “If you can do anything…help us!” Jesus quickly taught that father and all of us a critical spiritual lesson: Everything becomes possible for the person who believes in Christ! Think of what that means today as we face our broken situations and challenging difficulties. Let’s not be depressed and give up; but rather, let’s lift up our hearts to God in faith. He can do it! All he asks us to do is believe!
Read Mark 9:14-29.
