Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 9th December

The “All” of Belief

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” (Mark 9:23)

Our unbelief is the greatest hindrance in our way. The Lord can do everything, but when he makes a rule that according to our faith so shall it be unto us, our unbelief ties the hands of his omnipotence.

God is always true; why do we not believe him? He is always faithful to his word; why can we not trust him? When we are in a right state of heart, faith costs no effort: it is then as natural for us to rely upon God as for a child to trust its father.

The worst of it is that we can believe God about everything except the present pressing trial. This is folly. Shake off such sinfulness, and trust God with the load, the labour, the longing of this present. This done, all is done.
