Jesus looked at them and said, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Jesus said, " 'If you can'! All things are possible for one who believes."
3 Not only so, but we also exult in trials, knowing that trial develops endurance,
4 and endurance develops a tested character, and a tested character develops hope,
5 and hope does not disappoint, for the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit granted to us.
I have spoken these things to you that in me you may have peace. In the world you have distress. But he courageous. I have conquered the world."
16 Therefore we are not downhearted, but even if our outward man is wasting away, yet our inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our momentary and light distress is working out for us a far surpassing and eternal weight of glory
18 while we contemplate not the things that are seen, but the things unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things unseen are eternal.
I can do all things through him who gives me strength.
What then shall we say to this? If God is for us, who is against us?
Do not fear what you are soon to suffer. The Devil will soon cast some of you into prison so that you may be tested, and you will have distress ten days. Be faithful to death and I will give you the crown of life.
Do not, then, cast away your confidence, for it will have a great reward.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and self-control.
But as it is written, "What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard and what has not entered human mind, God has prepared for those who love him."
