God can change everything for you and your loved ones!
Today, I’d like to talk with you about my mom and her incredible perseverance. Her name is Nicole.
A difficult and rebellious teenager, I did everything possible to drown the grief caused by my parents’ divorce. When I was 16 years old, I almost died from a mixture of drugs and alcohol. I was really hard for my mom to handle!
One day, she heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and tried to share it with me. But I remained inflexible and made life even more difficult for her. But she persevered out of love by demonstrating remarkable patience. In the end, Jesus came and changed my life forever!
How was my conversion made possible? Because my mom believed without getting discouraged and because she persevered. The Bible confirms this: “‘…all things are possible to him who believes.’” (see Mark 9:23, NKJV)
Are you in total darkness today concerning certain aspects of your life? Maybe you’re discouraged by one of your loved one’s situations? God wants to encourage you: “‘All things are possible! If you believe, you will see My glory!’”
“All” means “without exception”: in all areas of your life, in every situation you go through. Embrace Jesus’s language if you haven’t already and declare that “all things are possible”:
- All things are possible in my marriage: I believe that my spouse will give him/herself to You, Lord!
- All things are possible in my relationships: at home, at work, at church, help me to imitate You, Jesus!
- All things are possible for my children: I confess that one day, “as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!”
- All things are possible in my family: I believe that every member of my family will be saved.
- All things are possible in conflicts: You are called the “Repairer of the Breach” (Isaiah 58:12)…thank You for bringing peace back.
- All things are possible concerning my character: I believe You’re transforming me into Your image.
…and persevere: it’s the key to success, to all your victories!
I’d like to encourage you with Sylvie’s testimony: “After reading the ‘A Miracle Every Day’ that said: “God always wants to bring you out of the shadows and break all the bonds that keep you away from Him”, I went to church. A sister in Christ told me, “Let go and trust God.” My thoughts for the past four years were continuously for my husband, who wasn’t converted. I was angry at him for not praying with me for our family, I was constantly sad with negative thoughts, which further increased the bad atmosphere in our marriage and prevented me from going forward in the faith. I came out of church, liberated, unburdened from all negative thoughts, happy, filled with a whole new joy knowing with certainty that God is taking care of my husband with love. The atmosphere immediately changed at home, I realized that my husband was a prisoner in my thoughts. God had broken the ties that kept my husband and me away from Him. Now I’m moving forward with new hope. Glory to God. This is my amazing miracle.”
Let’s glorify God and pray together…“Lord Jesus, thank You for reviving my faith. Yes, I want to persevere and believe that all things are possible because the victory is Yours. I want to rely on You alone, Jesus. Amen.”
Don’t let circumstances influence you, and persevere until all things become possible.
