Follow This Leader's Example When You Need to Believe the Impossible

Perhaps you find yourself in the position of believing God for the impossible but not sure how to get there. First of all, if you find yourself in the place of the impossible, then you are in right standing for a miracle. If it's possible in your own strength, then it's not a miracle.

Believing God for the impossible is entering into the realm of faith, and before you can have faith you must have hope—hope for the miraculous. Hope in the strength of God where you defy man's wisdom and strength, and willfully deny your own human reasoning and the power of your five senses. The first step of faith may not be easy, but it is a must. To obtain a miracle, You must have faith in God's supernatural ability.

We read about a ruler of the synagogue named Jairus. He asked Jesus to come to his home to minister healing to his dying daughter, but she died before they started their journey. And in the midst of the death report, Jesus said some pretty amazing words to him about the situation. He said, "Do not be fear. Only believe, and she will be made well" (Luke 8:50b). And after they arrived to Jairus' house, He said to the mourners, "Do not weep. she is not dead but sleeping" (Luke 8:52b). The passage goes on to say that they ridiculed Him, knowing that she was dead. (Read this amazing account in Luke 8:40-56.)

Imagine how foolish Jesus looked to the mourners when He spoke words of life instead of the obvious situation that lay before them. This is also why He made them all leave the room. In order for this little girl to come back to life, there could be no words of death, doubt and unbelief. Like Jesus, you are going to have to learn the power of your words, and speak life in the face of death.

Now, Jairus had a decision to make. He was either going to agree with the majority and doubt the power of God in the situation, or he was going to believe, meaning he would have to deny his human reasoning, the power of his five senses and the ridicule of those who thought they knew more about spiritual matters then Jesus did. He did deny himself and even the sympathy of the mourners. He believed Jesus for the impossible and obtained it.

Believing God for the impossible doesn't have to be complicated, but most often, we make it more complicated than it needs to be. I teach regularly about the power of childlike faith. Childlike faith is not childish, but super strong in the field of trust. It is weak in the arena of doubt, unbelief and human reasoning and lacks the power of the five senses. It is just as it should be—totally dependent upon the supernatural power of God to perform. And this is the stance Jairus and his wife had to take.

The humble place of believing God for the impossible is misunderstood by the world and even by many of our fellow believers in Christ. But in order to overcome the impossible situation you must deny your flesh and your soul (mind and emotions), the pleasures of sympathy that doubt and unbelief produce, and believe God, no matter what. But look at all the good this faith produces—life, healing, restoration, joy and possible out of impossible situations. Believing God is well worth it all.
