Daily Reflection October 14, 2016
Mark 11:19-25 At evening, Jesus and his disciples left the city. In the morning, walking along the road, they saw the fig tree, shriveled to a dry stick. Peter, remembering what had happened the previous day, said to him, “Rabbi, look–the fig tree you cursed is shriveled up!” Jesus was matter-of-fact: “Embrace this God-life. Really embrace it, and nothing will be too much for you. This mountain, for instance: Just say, ‘Go jump in the lake’–no shuffling or shilly-shallying–and it’s as good as done. That’s why I urge you to pray for absolutely everything, ranging from small to large. Include everything as you embrace this God-life, and you’ll get God’s everything. And when you assume the posture of prayer, remember that it’s not all asking. If you have anything against someone, forgive–only then will your heavenly Father be inclined to also wipe your slate clean of sins.”
– God wants to remove mountains of resistance from our lives. He has the power to do miracles in and through us. The God of my recovery is the God of the impossible. For the miracles to work I have to have faith. I have to prayer believing God is listening, God is answering and God is responding. When I put my life in God’s hands, through each step of recovery He walks with me and He helps me to do things I never expected to do.
