ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
Monday, 1 February, 2016
Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
On this verse above, you will notice that Jesus was preaching to His disciples and He was responding to the question that was modelled by a young man in v.20-23. The young rich man asked Jesus what was he lacking since he had all money that he raised and saved from his youth as he thought that if you have money you have everything in life and Jesus told him that he must sell everything he had and must give the money to the poor and follow Him. Wow! What a big task it is indeed; probably it would be the same with you and me as well if we were to enter into this man’s shoes. The young man just ran away from church because he possessed much.
The young man lacked the revelation of whom Jesus was, had he knew he was talking to the Master of all creations whom the bible records everything was created through Him and for Him. Col. 1:16. Had he knew who Jesus was, he was going to do as he was commanded and followed him and he would have made a hundredfold of what he had, Matt.19:29. It is easy for God to make a camel go through the eye of the needle than a materialistic man to enter into a supernatural dimension, to the level where God wants all of us to be.
God wants your heart; invest all your money and treasures in Him, for where your money is that’s where your heart is. Luke 12:34. The bible makes it clear that we must store up all our treasures in heaven where dust, rust and moth cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal. Matt. 6:20. You cannot serve God if your heart is not in Him. That’s why it becomes difficult for you to receive from a man of God that you do not sow a seed to, God deliberately locks His grace for you to receive. No matter how much you quote this scripture, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." It will only be possible to those who believe that God will do it for them because they have a covenant with Him and that covenant is written in their hearts for their money is in Him. Invest well, invest your treasures in heaven and God will make all things possible for you.
Dear Lord Jesus, I repent that I have kept my treasures from you; I lacked the revelation of who you are. I didn’t know that all I have belongs to you but from now onwards I will sow into this great revelation so that all things are possible in my life in Jesus name. I declare that mighty and miraculous things will happen to my life, all things that are impossible for an ordinary man to achieve within a month’s time, I shall achieve for with God all things are possible. Hallelujah! Amen.
