«Jesus said to him, ‘If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes’ » (Mark 9:23).
MARIA WAS BREATHING, but she did not open her eyes and her body was paralyzed. While she lay on the hammock, Gabriel went to his corn field and prayed for two miracles: health for his wife and to see her smiling again. One day, while he was praying, he sensed a voice that said to him «Gabriel, your wife will not die.» Days later, Maria sat up on the hammock and said to him in a weak voice, «I would like to eat some corn from your field”.
Where was Gabriel going to get corn for his wife? There were still no ripe ears of corn since it was not yet time for the harvest. However, feeling happy to see her recovered to such an extent, he said to her, «Yes, Love, tomorrow I will go and get corn for you to eat.»
During the night, Gabriel did not stop praying: «Lord, I need You; I need You to send corn to the field tomorrow. Maria and I know that there isn’t any.» Gabriel was convinced that corn even out of season. The next morning, he went out to the field and when he arrived, he closed his eyes and knelt down to pray. When he finished, he saw those ears of corn—twenty-seven mature ears of corn, ready to be eaten!! God is great, friend. He is the author of impossible things. day, Mary ate ears of corn from God’s field. Then she said to Gabriel, «If I die today, I will be at peace, since I already ate corn from the harvest of your field.»
«Maria, you will not die,» said Gabriel, full of confidence in God.
The certainty God gave Maria and Gabriel in their moment of trial is the same one He wants to give you today. Even though you are longing for a reply that you do not yet see, even though you feel that the trials are too hard, God wants to give you the certainty that He is at your side. For His part, He hopes that you will be a woman who believes in Him and can say, «If God is for us, who can be against us? . . . Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? . . . Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord» (Romans 8:31-38
