YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IN 2013

“YOU CAN DO ANYTHING IN 2013”
Jesus said to him, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." (Mark 9:23)
January 13, 2013 
By Pastor Mark Taylor

If you think some things in your life are impossible today, I would remind you that a little more than a hundred years ago many inventions we have today would have been thought of as impossibilities and many diseases were thought of as incurable.  Today you have more resources, education, and time than any other generation has ever had.  

Beyond the intelligence and creativity of man, we have our Lord telling us that with Him nothing is impossible.  "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26).  He is a resource to His children to give us courage, ability, and means to accomplish anything in life that will bring you closer to Him.

God has put into those who love Him, gifts and abilities, creativity and wisdom, and called us to use them for Him. “For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance” (Romans 11:29).  You are full of potential.  It has been reported in some studies that the average person uses less than 10 percent of his or her mind.  That means that there is 90 percent of our mind that we can use to accomplish what we think is impossible.  
But it all starts with a relationship with our Heavenly Father and a prayer. He moves that goal or desire to our mind, then to our will, then He gives us faith, and then we demonstrate our faith with our actions.

God wants us to know that we can do more, and bring more glory to Him.  The self-imposed limitations are the only thing that is limited us to do what we think is impossible.  Our value, our gifts and talents have already been put in us by God and with His help we can be better today than we were yesterday.  “Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you” (2 Timothy 1:6).

You are full of potential.  It has been reported in some studies that the average person uses less than 10 percent of his or her mind.  That means that there is 90 percent of our mind that we can use to accomplish what we think is impossible.  The self-imposed limitations are the only thing that is limited us to do what we think is impossible. Our motto for 2013 should be:  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13).

To do the impossible, we have to realize that other people’s opinions do not determine our potential or God’s willingness to help us.  Don’t let other people talk you out of doing great things in your life.  Don’t let the size of your dreams keep you from pressing forward.  Don’t let past failures or disappointments keep you from trying again and again. 
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before” (Philippians 3:13).  When one door shuts, God can supernaturally open another door that will lead to something better.  You cannot change the past, but you can do something about your future.  What is in front of you is more important than what is behind you.  The windshield on your car is much bigger than your rearview mirror for a reason.

God is always ready to give us a fresh beginning.  He wants to resurrect our dreams and do new things in our lives. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness’
 (1 John 1:9).  
This was David’s prayer after his great sins: “Have mercy upon me, O God, According to Your lovingkindness; According to the multitude of Your tender mercies, Blot out my transgressions” (Psalms 51:1).  

God is a God of second, third, and many more chances.  The Bible is full of miracles – of things that were impossible.  “Jesus answered and said to them, "Go and tell John the things which you hear and see: "The blind see and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear; the dead are raised up and the poor have the gospel preached to them. "And blessed is he who is not offended because of Me." (Matthew 11:4-6).

The first thing we have to believe is that: “with God all things are possible." (Matthew 19:26).  The second thing we have to believe is that God wants to do the impossible in your life: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).
