In this excerpt from Positive Living Day by Day, Dr. Norman Vincent Peals shares how you can unlock the power of faith by truly believing that anything is possible.
“‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Mark 9:23
I call to your attention a text in the New Testament: Mark 9:23. And it is probably one of the greatest gems of truth you will find. It says: “Everything is possible for him who believes.” Notice that there is a condition. You are offered something tremendous, but only if you have faith.
In-depth belief requires giving your whole self to it. It isn’t the glib recital of a creed. But if you can overcome your doubts and your negative thinking and really, deeply believe, you will enter into a life transformed.
This is the magic of believing. Belief is factual; it is truth. The magic of believing is a manifestation of one of the greatest powers in the universe: the power of thought.
By our thoughts we either create or destroy. You can tear your life down by destructive thinking, but you can build your life up by thinking constructively.
