Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Luk 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Mat 21:21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this [which is done] to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
Jhn 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater [works] than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Jhn 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
Jhn 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].
Have you ever had an adrenalin rush? My sister 12 and I 10 (many years ago) were enjoying a romp on Grandpa's lake/cabin homestead, we would walk a long dock and get down on hands and knees to climb down a latter and 'mess around' in the lake water up to our chest's. Getting back out of the water was even harder, as our bodies would feel like lead, and we broke the latter more than once even with our kid weight, as we once again got on our knees before pulling ourselfs into a standing position.
We were both 'petrified' of snakes, even if harmless ones.
On this one unforgettable sunny day, we were again chest deep about 2 yards from the dock when we heard a splash and saw a Water Moccasin swimming on the water right towards us. My next memory a second or two later is foot touching the dock right besides my sister, in a running position.
The Water Moccassin is a very fast swimmer, and so poisionus that we would not have made it out of the water had it bit us.
Neither of us could remember a thing from the second we saw the snake to running on the dock.
When we got back with our father, the snake was taking a sun bath on our dock. Thus Dad was able to confirm the breed of snake and access the extreme danger we were in.
After that incident we always had an adult sitting on the dock when we swam.
We never figured out just how we got out of the water so quickly, we seemed to approach the dock from above, as if our guardian angels gave us a lift.
One swimming instructor told me she 'walked' on water when lightening got close, and how many weak little women lifted up early model cars when their loved ones got trapped by the slipping jack, no one ever told them it was impossible, now that it is well known how impossible it is, you men will just have to watch out for the falling jack, your on your own. ha
The bible says, "As the man thinketh in his heart, so is he". "Thy faith hath made thee whole." "As you have believed so be it."
(Please pardon my spelling, please consider the message, not the words!
Lets consider the human babies, mentioned in the beginning of this website, the babies are now grown up, in earthly terms, and yes, thay do all the things that their parents did, and even greater things, but now the challenge is to look wth doubt and bewilderment at their heavenly parent.
"If ye have faith.." Attempts to gain this faith have been made, consider such books, "Think and grow rich" "The POWER of positive thinking."
FAITH is our next hurdle, but Father God is always there to pick us up if we fall or fail. Death is always before us, literally, but so also is life.
