Each day, I reflect upon a word or a phrase from the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
“…if you have faith the size of a mustard seed…nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:19-20)
We think and respond as human beings. We place limitations on what will happen or what we are capable of because we don’t operate with the mind of God.
Jesus answers the question for all of us – “have faith…nothing will be impossible for God.”
We need to keep this in mind as we face life’s struggles – health issues, concern for loved ones, financial strains, depression and addiction, and on and on. We are overwhelmed with the thought of ever seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
We limit our possibilities when we carry the burden alone. We accept the word “impossible” as the only viable outcome.
Pray to God. Trust God. Strive to do God’s will. Know that nothing will be impossible for God.
