NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE TO YOU

Date: December 20

Category: Divine Healing

Matthew 17:20
"He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."

Slobodan & Ljiljana KrstevskiAt the time that Jesus spoke this word, His disciples were unable to heal a certain man's son who was demon possessed (verse 16). In verse 17 we read, "And Jesus answered, O you unbelieving (warped, wayward, rebellious) and thoroughly perverse generation! How long am I to remain with you? How long am I to bear with you? Bring him here to Me." Then in verse 18 we read, "And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and the boy was cured instantly." All Jesus had to do was rebuke the devil and the boy was healed. When Jesus healed the boy, the disciples asked Him why they were not able to do it themselves (verse 19). So in verse 20a, Jesus responds, "Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]."

Then in verse 20b Jesus says, "For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move." The mustard seed is the smallest seed that exists. Any seed, once it is planted in the ground, will grow. So Jesus tells us that if we have faith the size of a mustard seed then we can move mountains in our lives. We can see from this story that the disciples faced a mountain when they encountered a boy they couldn't heal. But all they had to do was believe God and speak to that mountain, and that mountain had to obey. Then we read in verse 20c, "And nothing will be impossible to you."

Many of us face different mountains in our lives, whether they are in our relationships, our finances, our health, etc. We have the authority to speak to those mountains and command them to be removed from our lives. God will make it possible for us to move them, but we are the ones who have to trust and rely upon God and speak to those mountains. It's important that the words we speak are connected to the belief in our heart. When we speak based on the Word of God and we believe that which we have spoken, then we will be able to move any mountains in our lives.

When we accepted Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour, we laid our trust, confidence and dependence on the Word of God for the forgiveness of our sins and eternal life. When Jesus died on the cross of Calvary, not only did He provide salvation for us, but He also provided healing and prosperity for us as well. So the same measure of faith that it took for us to receive salvation is the same measure of faith that it takes to receive healing and prosperity. That's why you have to believe in your heart that those mountains in your life will be removed and command them to move, and then it will be done for you because nothing is impossible to you.

Then in verse 21 we read, "But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting." Sometimes there is more that is required other than a command. Sometimes you are required to endure through prayer and fasting until the deliverance is complete. But regardless of how long it takes nothing is impossible for you.

It's important to remember that we have to line up our words with the faith that is in our hearts. Actually according to Matthew 12:34b, our mouths will speak in accordance to what is full within our hearts anyway. So our mouth is a good indicator of whether or not we have faith in our heart. In order to speak words of faith, we need to fill our hearts with faith, and we do so through the Word of God. Then nothing will be impossible for us.

Everything that you can name and trust God for, God will give you the divine ability you need to achieve it. You will be able to do whatever you need to do to achieve whatever you desire to achieve. So let us be people of mountain-moving faith because when we trust God, nothing is impossible to us.
