God's Power

Verse:
 
"I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, `Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him." Mark 11:23
 
Lesson:
 
Why is it that often when we are presented with the greatest challenges in our lives, we seem to rely on God the least. It is in these times that we try to take on much of the burden ourselves, as if saying, "God, I can handle this one on my own." Is there anything in your life that is too big for God to handle? Do you think that even problems with your parents, or getting into trouble at school is too big to go to God with? Jesus said that if we have faith, and do not doubt, we could throw a mountain into the sea! What's up with that? He's saying that there is absolutely NO problem that he can't handle, and we only need to have faith in his ability to solve it."
 
Prayer:
 
"Dear Jesus, thank you for your love and support. Thank you for carrying us, even when we think we are in control. Let us not doubt your strength to take our burdens and lift them from our lives." - Amen
