All things are possible to him

1
All things are possible to him
That can in Jesus' name believe;
Lord, I no more Thy name blaspheme,
Thy truth I lovingly receive.
I can, I do believe in Thee;
All things are possible to me.
2
'Twas most impossible of all
That here sin's reign in me should cease;
Yet shall it be, I know it shall;
Jesus, I trust Thy faithfulness.
If nothing is too hard for Thee,
All things are possible to me.
3
Though earth and hell the Word gainsay,
The Word of God shall never fail;
The Lord can break sin's iron sway;
'Tis certain, though impossible.
The thing impossible shall be,
All things are possible to me.
4
All things are possible to God;
To Christ, the power of God in man;
To me when I am all renewed,
In Christ am fully formed again,
And from the reign of sin set free,
All things are possible to me.
5
All things are possible to God;
To Christ, the power of God in me;
Now shed Thy mighty Self abroad,
Let me no longer live, but Thee;
Give me this hour in Thee to prove
The sweet omnipotence of love.

Yes, I can do all things by His power. Since I can be His ordained priest, then with Him all things are possible to me. This is my favourite song.

My greatest prayer for all Christians is that they will come to the realization that indeed all things are possible to him who believes. With that we shall make heaven proud.

Mark 9: Jesus says, All things are possible if only you can believe.

I am persuaded this is true after 7 miscarriages, I have 2 healthy children. There is truly a place for faith in Him who performs all things.

I will ever remember this song all through my lifetime.'Twas the song God put in my mouth when my request from my employer seem almost impossible. God did it, great is thy faithfulness O Lord!

All three—the written word, the living word, and the applied word—refer to God Himself. "In the beginning was the Word...and the Word was God" (John 1:1). The Word here is a person. God's written word in the Bible becomes Christ as the living word, who is applied into us as the Spirit, the word of the Spirit. That is God Himself. The more that God is gained by you in this way, the more He becomes your faith.

Thus, the source of faith is God. He is the One who calls things not being as being and gives life to the dead (Rom. 4:17). In Genesis 1, there was no light, so God said, "Let there be light," and light was there (v. 3). We are related to God through these three aspects of His word: the written word, the living word, and the applied word. Then we enjoy God as the One who calls not being as being and who gives life to the dead. Nothing is impossible to faith (see Hymns, #535), because faith is actually God Himself.

...

In Matthew 17:20b the Lord spoke concerning the effect of faith: "If you have faith like a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to there, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you." Nothing is impossible to faith. Hymns, #535, written by Charles Wesley, expresses this effect of faith:

...

Only God is all-able, omnipotent; nothing is impossible to Him (Matt. 19:26). But the Lord also indicates that nothing is impossible to faith. So this indicates faith and God, God and faith, are one. If you do not have God, God remains apart from you. If you have God in you, this God becomes faith. Faith is the subjective God applied to your being. Thus, just as nothing is impossible to God, nothing is impossible to faith.

In the previous message we pointed out Hymns, #535 by Charles Wesley. I like his hymns very much, but I had never paid much attention to this hymn until recently. There is a wonderful line in stanza 5 which says, "Let me no longer live, but Thee." It is marvelous that such a line is in this hymn on faith. Faith is to believe that God is, and I am not. I do believe that Charles Wesley must have noticed this point. Otherwise, how could he have said in his hymn: "Let me no longer live, but Thee." This is faith. Faith always annuls us and reveals Christ to us.
