God Can

Read Mark 10:1 through 11:33

For years Jacob searched for a way to God. In college, he investigated different world religions but never found what he was looking for. He tried doing good deeds, but they never seemed good enough. He made great efforts to improve himself, but he still felt the weight of his inadequacies.

One day a friend at work invited Jacob to a Bible study. Though a little reluctant, he accepted. After weeks of attending, the truth penetrated Jacob’s heart. He began to see how he could truly have a relationship with God.

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God” (Mark 10:27).

The truth Jesus shared in this verse is simple: It is impossible for human beings to create their own path to God.

People cannot do enough good works or become good enough to reach God. Many try, but all fail. There is only one way to have a relationship with God and that is through His Son, Jesus Christ. The God of the impossible makes it possible for anyone who believes.

Thought for Today: Only God can do the impossible.

Quicklook: Mark 10:20–27

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).

Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
