All Things Are Possible

Mark 9:23 THV Version

Yeshua said to him, If you have the power of assertive and persuaded confidence, anything and everything is possible for you.

~ Or ~

… If it is possible for you to trust, being fully persuaded of the outcome, you’ll have the power to do or see anything become a reality.

Common Rendition

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst[1] believe[2], all things[3] are possible[4] to him that believeth.” - Mark 9:23 KJV

Commentary

Yes, everything is possible for you! Not having the confidence, currently, doesn’t make the matter an impossibility. It is only impossible for you, until you can perceive the circumstances differently- in a healthier way than before. Someone else could very well, intuitively, see (or make sense of) what you cannot and, therefore, bring about what you deem “impossible”.

If you do not have the power of assertive and persuaded confidence, then it is, currently, not possible for you. In this way, you are your own worst enemy. You will blame the circumstances, your “inabilities” and the difficulties but none of those things make the idea in question impossible. Your own state of mind makes it impossible. Like Morpheus told Neo, in The Matrix, “Your mind makes it real”, one way or the other, for better or for worse. “You have to let it all go...fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free your mind.”
