Every miracle Jesus did was based on impossible situation. In order to see the impossible become possible you must have faith for it. Our belief is God is good and able and willing. We have Jesus faith, 

Heb 11:6 It's impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.  MSG


HEB 11:6 There is no substitute reward for faith. Faiths return exceeds any other sense of achievement. Faith knows that God is; those who desire to respond to his invitation to draw near, realize by faith that he is lifes most perfect gift.  MIRROR

JOHN 6:8 Then one of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter.

9 pointed to a little boy who had five small loaves of inexpensive barley bread and two small fishes and remarked how insignificant they appeared amongst such a multitude of hungry people!

10 Jesus asked his disciples to get everybody seated - the place was ideal for a picnic since it was spring and the grass was lush and green! Thousands of people gathered! (In the Jewish custom where only the men were counted there happened to be 5000 of them let alone the multitudes of ladies and children!)

11 Jesus took the bread and fish and thanked God for it, then distributed it amongst the people; everyone was free to take as much as they wanted!

12 When the crowd had eaten their fill Jesus said to his disciples to gather up all the broken pieces to make sure that nothing is lost.

13 So they did and filled twelve baskets with fragments after everybody had as much as they could eat!   MIRROR

John 6:5 When Jesus looked out and saw that a large crowd had arrived, he said to Philip, "Where can we buy bread to feed these people?"

6 He said this to stretch Philip's faith. He already knew what he was going to do.

7 Philip answered, "Two hundred silver pieces wouldn't be enough to buy bread for each person to get a piece."  MSG


JOHN 6:5 There was no getting away from the crowds though; when Jesus saw the multitude arrive he said to Phillip, How do you think we are going to feed all these people?

6 This wasnt a trick question, but simply to engage their faith; he already knew exactly what he was going to do!

7 Phillip immediately concluded that this was impossible to do and far beyond a budget of any reasonable calculation; two hundred days wages could never buy enough for each person in the crowd to even get a little morsel of bread!  MIRROR

Luke 18:27  "No chance at all," Jesus said, "if you think you can pull it off by yourself. Every chance in the world if you trust God to do it."   MSG


Luke 18:27 But He said, What is impossible with men is possible with God.  AMP

Matthew 17:20 He told them, It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move away from here and go over there, and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldn't do!  TPT

Heb 6:18 God can't break his word. And because his word cannot change, the promise is likewise unchangeable. We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go.  MSG

Dr. Ron Charles said, A belief amongst the Jewish people was after being dead for four days not even a God could raise him up."

John 11:14  Then Jesus became explicit: "Lazarus died.

15 And I am glad for your sakes that I wasn't there. You're about to be given new grounds for believing. Now let's go to him."

16 That's when Thomas, the one called the Twin, said to his companions, "Come along. We might as well die with him."

17 When Jesus finally got there, he found Lazarus already four days dead. MSG


John 11:21 Martha said, "Master, if you'd been here, my brother wouldn't have died.

22 Even now, I know that whatever you ask God he will give you."

23 Jesus said, "Your brother will be raised up."

24 Martha replied, "I know that he will be raised up in the resurrection at the end of time."

25 "You don't have to wait for the End. I am, right now, Resurrection and Life. The one who believes in me, even though he or she dies, will live.

26 And everyone who lives believing in me does not ultimately die at all. Do you believe this?"

27 "Yes, Master. All along I have believed that you are the Messiah, the Son of God who comes into the world."  MSG


JOHN 11:21 Martha said to Jesus, Lord, if youd been here earlier my brother would not have died.

22 But I know that even now whatsoever you would ask of God he will give it to you.

23 Jesus said to her, Your brother shall rise again.

24 Martha said, Yes I know that he shall rise again in the conclusion of time.

25 Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life - he that believes in me shall live even though he died.

26 And whoever is alive in the life that I am, shall never die. Do you believe this?

27 Yes Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was destined to come into the world.  MIRROR

John 3:9 Nicodemus answered by asking, How can all this be possible?

10 Jesus replied, Are you the teacher of Israel, and yet do not know nor understand these things? [Are they strange to you?]

11 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, We speak only of what we know [we know absolutely what we are talking about]; we have actually seen what we are testifying to [we were eyewitnesses of it]. And still you do not receive our testimony [you reject and refuse our evidence that of Myself and of all those who are born of the Spirit].

12 If I have told you of things that happen right here on the earth and yet none of you believes Me, how can you believe (trust Me, adhere to Me, rely on Me) if I tell you of heavenly things?

13 And yet no one has ever gone up to heaven, but there is One Who has come down from heaven the Son of Man [Himself], Who is (dwells, has His home) in heaven.

John 3:9 Nicodemus replied, I don't understand; what do you mean? How does this happen?

10Jesus answered, Nicodemus, aren't you the respected teacher in Israel, and yet you don't understand this revelation?

11I speak eternal truths about things I know, things I've seen and experiencedand still you don't accept what I reveal.

12If you're unable to believe what I've told you about the natural realm, what will you do when I begin to unveil the heavenly realm?

13No one has risen into the heavenly realm except the Son of Man who also exists in heaven. TPT

Luke 8:41 And there came a man named Jairus, who had [for a long time] been a director of the synagogue; and falling at the feet of Jesus, he begged Him to come to his house,

42 For he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying. As [Jesus] went, the people pressed together around Him [almost suffocating Him].  AMP

LUKE 8:46 Jesus answered, Someone has touched me differently; I felt a surge of power emanating from me.

47 Then, realizing that she could not remain unnoticed, she approached Jesus, trembling and knelt before him and proceeded to tell everyone her story and that she felt heat going though her body as she touched the hem of his garment and was instantly cured!

48 And he said to her, Daughter, your faith has saved you, continue on your lifes journey in this place of our joint-oneness and peace.  MIRROR

Luke 8:49 While He was still speaking, a man from the house of the director of the synagogue came and said [to Jairus], Your daughter is dead; do not weary and trouble the Teacher any further.

50 But Jesus, on hearing this, answered him, Do not be seized with alarm or struck with fear; simply believe [in Me as able to do this], and she shall be made well.  AMP  ?

LUKE 8:52 Everyone outside was weeping and overcome with grief, but Jesus said, there is no need for weeping since she is only sleeping and not dead! (He redefines death.)

53 Their wailing immediately became scornful laughter since they were convinced that she was dead.

54 He then grabbed her hand firmly and summoned her, Little lady, arise!

55 Her spirit immediately returned and she stood up! Jesus then suggested that they bring her something to eat.  MIRROR

What are you believing for that is impossible unless God moves on your behalf?
