Have you ever dreamt of doing or having something so impossible?
I guess we all have. But at so many times when these kind of dreams and prayers stir up in our hearts, our hopes begin to deflate because of the cold sobering reality that just pops it up!
Frustrating right? Heartbreaking, even.
We can never deny facts, well, because they are facts. Even with how much we would like to live in fantasy, we very much exist and walk in reality.
But this should not be the absolute truth for us. Because, whether you have the guts to believe it or not, we can actually live our dreams and believe even for the impossible things!
All we need is Jesus. All you and I need to have in our lives is Jesus.
But this isn’t something like I must have this ‘genie-like Jesus’. This is about pursuing a relationship with Him and putting our complete faith in His ability and willingness to enable us to walk more than the natural but in the supernatural.
There were two almost simultaneous events in the ministry of Jesus that showed this kind of ‘all-I-need-is-Jesus-faith’
1. The man with a dead daughter.
Matthew 9:18 While he (Jesus), was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, “My daughter had just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.”
The daughter JUST died. Zero heartbeat. All the organs failed to function. But the man said, “but come”…and “she will live!” What kind of faith is that?!
That is a faith that believes that God’s expertise is on the impossibilities. A faith that believes that when God comes and enter our lives, impossible is nothing and nothing is ever impossible for us who believe!
2. The sick woman.
Matthew 9:20 Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve
years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.”
This woman probably has met all the expert doctors around and all she got from them was nothing! For twelve years, she was suffering. You could say she was at the end of her rope. Would she even dare to believe for healing? Didn’t the failed consultations and treatments from her doctors enough proof that she is beyond cure?
But she dared hope. Because she knew of that One person who could heal her. If only she could touch Him, even at the edge of His cloak, she knew she would be healed. Even the edge of His cloack. Just imagine what an embrace from Jesus could do. Wow.
See. These people are at the most desperate moments in their lives that the only way out for them was to believe and hold on to their seemingly ridiculous faith!
And they did believe. They did hold on to their faith.
Because they know–all they need is Jesus. Just like you and I do.
So what are you dreaming for? Is it too impossible and hard for you?
Then hop on and join the whole band of mankind whose only hope is for Jesus in their lives.
