The Miracles of Jesus: Day 7

Weekly Truth

by

Today's Text: Matthew 19:26

Memorizing Scripture is one of the best ways to carry God-breathed truth, instruction, and reproof wherever we go.

As we study the miracles of Jesus, we remember that even our very salvation is impossible apart from Him, and that He is the source of all things.  

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
—Matthew 19:26

Write this passage down and post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about Scripture memorization. Will you join us?

    Really enjoyed this it was short, but had a powerful message. I love how that incorporated things to do throughout the day to help you stay in God’s path. Amen!!!

  • Atalie Jones

    Lord, thank You for allowing me to wake up this morning. Thank You for the 4 walls surrounding me and the roof over my head. Thank You for the food that we are able to put on our table. Lord, I don’t want to continue to just pray prayers that sound “nice”. I want to pray prayers from my heart. I pray that today You open the ears and eyes of my heart. I want to see, hear, and feel You in a mighty way. Make me aware of those in need that surround me.

  • Please pray for my family as they seek new jobs

  • Needed this reminder today. I’m dealing with a really challenging coworker at a new job and am just plain worn out. It feels pretty impossible for things to go well with this woman, for me to learn something from her, to be an encouragement to her. But all things are possible with God! How wonderful that my life and the circumstances of this world are not up to me. I pray that God would soften my heart toward those who are hard to love and that He would provide for my needs at my new job. He will provide for all my needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus. Fill me with faith, Lord!

  • Strange…these comments are from yesterdays study.

  • I love this verse in its context:

    21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
    22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
    23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
    25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

    The camel shrinks. The needle grows larger. The camel comes apart, cell by cell, passes through the eye, and reforms on the other side. Who knows… but ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

    Today, I am thankful that nothing is impossible. Today, I am thankful for things beyond comprehension.

  • A lovely verse to hold in my heart. I face one of my biggest life changes in a matter of weeks as my upcoming marriage approaches. I feel so many clashing emotions and fear that comes with uncertainity and change. I pray that I will find my purpose more fully in Christ, and rest in Him. He is the author and finisher of my faith.

      Prayers for you and your upcoming marriage! I too am going to be married within the next week. It’s scary and exciting, but how wonderful that He will be with you as you tie the knot and move forward in life.

    • Emily B.

      I’m a semi-newlywed, and I remember those feelings well. Keep clinging to the Lord and trusting Him as the foundation of your marriage. It only gets sweeter from here. :)

  • churchmouse

    Praying for all of us who have impossibles in our lives – those people who are hardened against Christ and those circumstances that so overwhelm that we can hardly breathe. Praying to our great God who is more than able.

  • I want this truth to sink deep into my way of being. I don’t want to just intellectually assent that this is true but when rubber hits the road be more in fear than faith. I want to trust with all my being that God can truly do the impossible. It is my prayer that God sink this truth deeper and deeper into me.

  • I needed to be reminded of exactly this message today. I have a sweet friend in need of a new liver, and for a technical reason, does not qualify to be on the list to receive a liver from an organ donor. Our hope must be in God, that He will provide a living donor who is a tissue match from among friends and family. If not, she likely has no more than 3 years left with us on this earth. I had been feeling lost regarding what to pray for her. God will provide!

      Praying for your friend, Kay! Asking the Lord to move in ways that we can’t even imagine.

  • Today, I will need God’s strength as I set out to complete my first half marathon. I am feeling underprepared to conquer this course that is said to be challenging and filled with hills, but “With God all things are possible.” How wonderful it is that even though I am bound to fall short in my human abilities, God is always there to sustain me.

    • Amanda Delbo

      I felt the same way when I ran my first half marathon. But when my legs started to feel sore, and I felt like I couldn’t keep going, I remembered that God was right next to me and everyone else along the race, pulling us through. A dear friend of mine has done several marathons, and she recites the verse from Phillipians, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” to herself when she hits that runner’s “wall.” He will sustain you!

    • Mari

      Wish I would’ve read this sooner because by now you probably already ran it. What a great feeling to cross the FINISH line huh? My motto is Philippians 4:13. I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. When I start to get tired I keep reciting this. Enjoy your day Tay!

  • All things are possible with God. when we call on God, He answers, let’s keep our eyes fixed on Jesus believing every word He has spoken concerning us.

  • All things are possible!
