If someone asked you that question, most of you would say something like, “Of course not! How dare you!” Or, “I go to church, and I give money too”, but whenever you stand at the bottom of a “life mountain”, and you stretch your neck to see the top of it, you start thinking, “this is impossible!” It’s almost as if you are saying, “This is too big for God!”
Doubting God’s power is like doubting God even exist! If you are going to choose, to believe in him, then you must also believe in his character of being all powerful, all knowing, having a mighty hand, and a heart full of love toward his children. Otherwise, you are a part time atheist.
A full time believer knows God loves the word “impossible”! Just because you don’t see a way doesn’t mean God doesn’t. He never looks at us, shrugs his shoulders and say, “Boy. You got me on this one.” Or, “Good luck. Let me know how it turns out for ya.” No. He looks at us, smiles, and says, “Thanks for trusting me enough to let me handle this for you. I’ve got this.” Full belief, delivers rest.
Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Philippians 4:6-7 The Message (MSG)
So believe fully, and walk with your God in confidence, but know, it’s okay to hold his hand.

Hi Kuya Mark,
With teary eyes, i wanted to thank the Lord for using you in providing such encouragement which i badly need right now. Just last night, i went to a breaking point wherein admittedly, i thought that the Lord is rejecting my prayers. This thing you wrote made me realize i was a part time atheist yet it gives me joy knowing how to overcome it. Thanks and may the good Lord continue to bless you.
Catherine, I appreciate you sharing so honestly. I’m glad God’s words ministered to you. Prayers for you now. God’s got this! You WILL get to the other side with his help. Hang on to Him. He loves you so much!
