John 6:1-14; Mark 9:14-29

Got any rivers you think are uncrossable;

‘Oh, Lord God! Behold, You Yourself have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You.  Jeremiah 32:17

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?”  Jeremiah 32:27

An Impossible Story Involving a and a

And they brought the boy to Him. When he saw Him, the spirit immediately threw him into convulsions, and falling to the ground, he began rolling around and foaming at the mouth.  And He asked his father, “How long has this been happening to him?” And he said, “From childhood.  It has often thrown him both into the fire and into the water to kill him. But if You can do anything, take pity on us and help us!”  But Jesus said to him, “‘If You can?’ All things are possible for the one who believes.” Immediately the boy’s father cried out and said, “I do believe; help my unbelief!” Mark 9:20-24
