October 31, 2011: Faith to Move Mountains

~ by Mary Galvano

I had a discussion with someone about faith not too long ago. Someone close to both of us was going through a trying time. I came out and said that I have faith, everything will be fine, and I know a miracle will happen because God won’t abandon her. This person I was talking to, however, replied back that faith isn’t always a good thing to count on because it can let you down. We shouldn’t always depend on it, she continued.

Hmmm. Faith can let you down?

Faith doesn’t let anyone down, lack of faith does. Miracles happen every day and nothing is impossible for God. God can do whatever He wants. He creates everything good.

When things are at their worst and you can’t go on, God throws down a rope right when we need it the most and helps us. He wants us to depend totally on Him, though, and completely trust Him. He will not turn his back on us. We are His good creations. Jesus said, “If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.” (Matthew 7:11)

It is with the greatest tribulations that God performs His greatest miracles. Believe.

The Bible is full of stories of desperate cases that resulted in great miracles. Why the greatest miraculous story of the Bible is the crucifixion. Jesus went through an agonizing death only to have the greatest miracle of all come out of it, eternal life.

And let us not forget to ask for prayers through the intercessions of the all saints, angels and the holy souls that have gone before us. They are looking out for us continually.

By the way, the person that was going through the difficult time did in fact receive her miracle. She is completely healed. She thanks God everyday for the graces that the Holy Spirit bestowed on her.

I want to leave you with a quote:

“Hope is wishing for a thing to come true; faith is believing that His will come true. Believe that for every problem God will provide you with a solution.” (NVP)

Have a blessed All Saints and All Souls day!
