Believe that with God nothing is Impossible Lesson 4
Pastor Davis plays the role of the Priest Zacharias in the play BELIEVE
The Life-Light was the real thing: Every person entering Life he brings into Light. He was in the world, the world was there through him, and yet the world didn’t even notice. He came to his own people, but they didn’t want him. But whoever did want him, who believed he was who he claimed and would do what he said, He made to be their true selves, their child-of-God selves. These are the God-begotten, not blood-begotten, not flesh-begotten, not sex-begotten.
John 1:12-13 MSG
My brothers and sisters, today I encourage you as you prepare yourselves to go into the world and face the most dangerous enemy of all times, that you girdle your entire body and mind up with a mustard seed of faith; and when you do, look the enemy in the eye and tell him,“I BELIEVE TH AT WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE,” and this moment of trials and tribulations, they to shall pass. Because I am living in the light and the light is shinning in me and through me. “I BELIEVE!”
Faith and doubt cannot live in the same house, one are the other is going to rule. Which do you want to rule over your life? The cold hard choice we make concerning these two very important people in our lives will determine our destiny. We cannot serve two masters that on this day, which we are going to serve, and then begin to live our lives accordingly?
Now my brothers and sisters I want you to listen and understand this very important story of Zacharias the Priest and how God dealt with him when he doubted the word of God. You see both Zacharias and his wife were up in age when the angel of the Lord approached him and told him that he and his wife were going to have a baby. And Zacharias expressed all the pent-up doubt in his heart.
But the angel reassured him, “Don’t fear, Zachariah. Your prayer has been heard. Elizabeth, your wife, will bear a son by you. You are to name him John. You’re going to leap like a gazelle for joy, and not only you—many will delight in his birth. He’ll achieve great stature with God.
“He’ll drink neither wine nor beer. He’ll be filled with the Holy Spirit from the moment he leaves his mother’s womb. He will turn many sons and daughters of Israel back to their God. He will herald God’s arrival in the style and strength of Elijah, soften the hearts of parents to children, and kindle devout understanding among hardened skeptics—he’ll get the people ready for God.”
Zachariah said to the angel, “Do you expect me to believe this? I’m an old man and my wife is an old woman.”
This is the exact same way that Abraham expressed himself to God when God told him that he was going to have a son. You see my brothers and sister, Zachariah thinking is the way we think by being in the world. Our thoughts like his not being centered in the Spirit of the Lord and what the Lord can do when we get out of the way and let God have His way.
The angel of the Lord continued by saying, “I am Gabriel, the sentinel of God, sent especially to bring you this glad news. But because you won’t believe me, you’ll be unable to say a word until the day of your son’s birth. Every word I’ve spoken to you will come true on time—God’s time.” (Luke 1:13-20 MSG.
You see my brothers and sisters, because Zacharias had doubted, he would lose the power of speech until the child was born. Whenever a believer entertains doubts concerning God’s word, he loses his testimony and his song. Unbelief of the lips, and they remain sealed until faith returns and bursts forth in praise and witness.
Gabriel the angel of the Lord continue to pursue the mission which God had dispatched him on and entered into the space of Mary whom God had blessed and highly favored, and this is what he spoke to her, he begin by saying, “and did you know that your cousin Elizabeth conceived a son, old as she is? Everyone called her barren, and here she is six months pregnant! Nothing, you see, is impossible with God.”
And Mary said,
Yes, I see it all now:
I’m the Lord’s maid, ready to serve.
Let it be with me36
just as you say.
Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:37-38 MSG)
My brothers and sisters “BELIEVE” that is the lesson the Lord wants us to learn. Believe that with God all things are possible. Stop living your life in doubt, allowing your faith to waiver and become like the motions of the oceans, always going back and forth. When you learn to believe, a whole new world of possibilities will open unto you. “BELIEVE, BELIEVE” my brothers and sisters and you too will receive the favor of the Lord.
