Reasons for Faith in Jesus

July 24, 2015

Jesus has the power to do more than we can imagine or expect. Little wonder that He was able to walk on water and multiply the bread to feed 5000. These were clear indications that He has power to do all things provided we have faith in Him. We do not have to be afraid because, for every difficulty we meet, Jesus has an answer:

You say: It is impossible. God says: All things are possible (Lk 18:27).
You say: Am too tired. God says: I will give you rest (Mt 11:28-30).
You say: I cannot go on. God says: My grace is sufficient (2Car 12:9).
You say: I can't figure things out. God says: I will direct your steps (Prv 3:5-6).
You say: I can't do it. God says: You can do all things (Phil 4:13).
You say: I am not able. God says: I am able (2 Cor 9:8).
You say: It is not worth it. God says: It will be worth it (Rom 8:28).
You say: I can't forgive myself. God says: I forgive you (Rom 8:1; 1 Jn 1:9).
You say: I can't manage. God says: I will supply all your needs (Phil 4:19).
You say: I am afraid. God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear (2 Tm 1:7).
You say: I don't have enough faith. God says: I have given every one a measure of faith (Rom 8).
You say: I am always worried and frustrated. God says: Cast all your fears on me (1 Pt 5:7).
You say: I am not smart enough. God says: I give you wisdom (1 Cor 1:30).
You say: I feel all alone. God says: I will not leave you or forsake you (Heb 13:5).
You say: Nobody really loves me. God says: I love you (Jn 3:16; 13:34).

Don't let yourself be shaped by the world in which you live and its modern culture. Rather, be transformed through the renewal of your mind. You must discern the will of God (see Rom 12:2).
