“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will He do, because I am going to the Father.” – John 14:12
In many moments, and even movies, when a group of people is facing a monumental task or challenge…there is typically some kind of rally cry that motivates them to move forward.
I think about movies like “Miracle” where Kurt Russell’s character was coaching the US Hockey Team, and they were massive underdogs against the Soviets. But before the game started, he stood before his team and rallied them, saying:
“Great moments are born in great opportunity. And that is what you have here tonight, boys. That is what you’ve earned here tonight. One game. If we played ‘em ten times, they might win nine. But not this game. Not tonight. Tonight, we skate with them. Tonight, we stay with them. And we shut them down because we can! Tonight, WE are the greatest hockey team in the world.”
In a nutshell, he was saying that the time is now to do the impossible. It was a rallying cry. And they believed him…and they won.
Some people believe in luck. But what happened that night was not lucky. It was a time when preparation met opportunity. Now let me ask you, have you prepared for your opportunity?
What in your life are you waiting for but don’t really believe in because it would take a miracle? God can make that miracle happen. John 14:12 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will He do, because I am going to the Father.”
I wonder what God could do if people truly believed nothing was impossible. If rather than limiting God and putting Him in a box, they dared to believe that He can do anything at any moment.
What do you need God to do in your life? Nothing is out of the question. He can do anything He wants. At the end of the game as the time was winding down, Al Michaels, calling the game, famously asks the question…
“Do you believe in miracles?”
