Like a Child: Everything is Possible

A child believes that all things are possible. Jesus commands that our faith should be the same.

A young child does not distinguish between fantasy and reality. He believes that Superman can fly, that Santa is carried through the skies by reindeer, and that mice became horses that escorted Cinderella to the royal ball. A child who is taught the Word of God also believes it at face value  — and should!

Today we attended a memorial service for a dear family friend, Dr. John Chacha. The accident that took his life robbed the Kingdom of a tremendous asset. Many wonderful things were said about Chacha today, but what stands out to me is that he was a person who believed that nothing was impossible.

Chacha believed that an ‘insignificant’ boy from a poor village in Africa could change the world — and he did. He believe that thousands of people with no chance of going to college could earn a degree through correspondence and itinerant courses — and they did. He believed that hundreds of orphans could walk into a bright future — and they have. Many thought and even told him that these would not be possible, but Chacha just did them anyway.

“If you have faith as small as a mustard seed” (or as innocent as a child’s or as audacious as that of John Chacha), “NOTHING shall be impossible for you.”1

What do I need to believe in today? What “impossible” dream is waiting to be fulfilled?
