Yes, You Can!

“If I can just raise some money. If I could be more spiritual. If I can just find a faithful partner. If I can just find the right drug. If I can just find someone to help.”

These and many more are some of the excuses we give for our predicaments. We seem to be confined by so many limitations. We are surrounded by so many immovable mountains and several impossibilities. There are moments we feel hopeless as if we have come to a cul de sac and there is no more way for us.

Well, I have come to tell you today that whatsoever we ultimately experience in life is our choice. We have no excuse in life. We cannot blame God for our location, colour, country, or condition. Providence has placed us, in His wisdom, into the best part of the world with the right kind of people.

It is our responsibility to take our unique conditions back to God and allow Him to accomplish His purpose through those experiences. This is why the Scripture says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” (Romans 8:28 NKJV).

Friend, God has given us all the resources we need to alter our conditions “as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3 NKJV).

What you need to have a healthy and wealthy life is yours already. You can be spiritual. You can live above sin. You can have all your needs met. You can become anything that God has planned for you. Nothing stops you.

I have realized that what confines us is not the conditions of our lives but the convictions in our hearts. The lack in our lives is not the lack of resources but the lack of resoluteness to pursue God’s purpose for our lives.

In Mark 9:23, Jesus responded to a man who was desperately in need of healing for his epileptic son. He prayed Jesus to heal him if He could. Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes (NKJV).”

Jesus helped him to refocus on what is important to His breakthrough - his believability!

Just like this man, our focus when we are faced with a challenge or a need is always on what we can do to solve the problem. Do we have enough money? Do we have enough power, skill, ability, knowledge or equipment? We always try to do our best to solve the problem. We think of what we can do.

More often than not, we realize that we are limited and there is little or nothing we can actually do. We come to that state of helplessness just like the father of this epileptic child.

Jesus made it clear here that focusing on our ability will not solve the problem. It is the wrong way to deal with our challenges. God is not looking for our ability but our believability. It is not how much you have in your bank account but how much can you believe? How far can you see?

As a matter of fact, God is embarrassed when He asks you to do a thing and you are considering your bank account. God wants you to cast your abilities in divine possibilities.

The truth is if you have a God-sized vision, it takes a God-size faith to accomplish it. Your ability cannot accomplish heaven’s project.

Hear what Jesus said to the man again, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” So, the real issue is not if you have money or means but if you can believe.

You can if you can believe. All things are possible to the one who believes.

The question I want to ask you is simple, “Can you believe?” If your answer is Yes, Jesus said your problem is solved. The project is possible. You can do it. You can overcome sin. You can have a stable and consistent walk with God. You can conceive. You can marry this year. You build the house. You can build the business and become a multimillionaire if you can believe.

The first thing God will do for you is not to enlarge you capacity but to enlarge your believability. Your capacity or ability will then increase in proportion to your faith. Until your faith is increased, your ability or capacity cannot increase.

Maybe the prayer you need to pray is the prayer of the apostles, “Increase our faith” (Luke 17:5). You need to ask God to expand your capacity to believe. You need an increase in your believability quotient. God needs to overhaul your belief system if you want to see Him at work.

After Lot separated from Abram, these words came to Him from God, “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever” ( Genesis 13:14-15 NKJV).

Where are you right now? What conditions or predicaments are you surrounded with? Are you barren or broke? Are you in debt or depressed? Are you confused? Are you sick or sad? God said, “Stop looking down on yourself or at your current conditions. Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward.”

Write down all the good things and great future that you see. Write big things. Write impossible things. Write things that have never been done in your lineage. Let it be massive. Don’t write based on your current conditions.

God said, “For all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever.”

Except you can’t see or conceive it, God is committed to giving it to you. It is possible if you can believe.

Yes, you can!
