Anything Is Possible Study Guide
How Nine Miracles of Jesus Reveal God's Love for You
In this companion study guide to Anything is Possible, pastor Joby Martin helps readers embrace the power of miracles.Miracles are impossible. The defy explanation. They can’t be real. And yet, miracles surround us every day. Where we face something that we can’t fix and run out of options. Where the limited and finite ability of man ends and unlimited and infinite will of God begins. Where what is impossible with man is possible with God.
In Anything is Possible, Joby Martin, bestselling author and Lead Pastor of The Church of Eleven 22, examines nine miracles of Jesus—the miracle at the wedding of Cana, the story of the cripple at the pool of Bethesda, the feeding of the 5,000, the raising of Lazarus—and shows how each teaches us something unique about how God wants to relate to us.
Written with New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin, Anything is Possible is an insightful and spiritually rich look the miracles of Christ, and how the greatest miracles of all changed everything. Ultimately, he encourages readers that God still does miracles today, that believers have access to the incredible power that raised Jesus from the dead, and, ultimately, reminds us not to seek miracles themselves, but the one who performs them.
In this companion study guide, Joby Martin will lead readers to deeply engage with the content and embrace the power of miracles.

“Because I have spent my life serving children, I tend to view things through their eyes. So when I read Pastor Joby’s book Anything Is Possible, I immediately thought: children get that. But the older we get, the further we drift away from believing in possibility. Jesus never told a child to grow up, but He did tell grownups to “grow down” when He said, “Unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 18:3). Let this fresh and insightful walk through Jesus’ miracles via the wit and wisdom of master storyteller Joby Martin rekindle your childlike faith in the Miracle Worker. Whatever your impossible is, give God the chance to change it to possible.”—Dr. Wess Stafford, President Emeritus, Compassion International, author of Too Small to Ignore: Why the Least of These Matter Most and Just a Minute: In the Heart of a Child, One Moment Can Last Forever
“Do you (really) believe in miracles? In Joby Martin’s gripping new book, Anything Is Possible, he challenges us with a clear and compelling picture through nine miracles of Jesus, of how our lives can be changed for good!”—Dan Reiland, Executive Pastor, 12Stone Church and author of Leadership Alone Isn’t Enough
“If you want your life to stay the same, do NOT read this book. But if you're ready for your mind to expand, dive into Anything Is Possible. In a world that seems to be becoming more and more linear and clinical, Joby gives readers a fresh look at just how much is supernaturally possible.”—William Vanderbloemen, Founder and CEO, Vanderbloemen
“With the skill of an exegete and the travail of an expositor, Joby Martin gave us If The Tomb Is Empty. Now with the faith of a pilgrim and the heart of a pastor, he gives us insight into the certainty that with the power of Christ anything Is possible. Joby looks at the miracles of Jesus, not just to find something spectacular about which to write, but to point us to something much bigger than our issues. This must-read book captures the truth of the ages that with Christ - Anything Is Possible.”—Mac Brunson, Pastor Valleydale Church
“An astute reader must always be cautious about a book that deals with miracles. Many of them lead people to desire the miracles alone without giving any regard to the giver of said miracles. Anything is Possible isn't just another fluffy book about miracles that depicts God as some sort of a cosmic genie. This is a blistering siren directing image bearers to the power of a just and merciful Father God. Apparently, If the Tomb is Empty was just the appetizer. Now, it's time for the main course.”—Kyle Thompson, Founder, Undaunted.Life, Host, Undaunted.Life: A Man’s Podcast
“Joby Martin writes like he preaches and that means that this book is all about Jesus…but there’s a unique anointing in these pages that’s surprising. Joby masterfully unpacks nine miracles Jesus performed when He walked the earth and then shows us how, because of the resurrection, anything is possible for us right now. I truly love this book and you will, too.”—Clayton King, Pastor and Overseer, Newspring Church, Founder, Crossroads Camps and Conferences

I found my own heart reorient towards the things that are most true, resulting in an inner strength and effervescent joy that increased with each turned page.”—Ryan Kwon, Lead Pastor, Resonate Church
“Joby possesses a theologian’s mind, a comedian’s timing, a preacher’s fire and a pastor’s heart. I love that he has created a resource helping us see how the miracles of Jesus intersect our lives today.”—Ben Stuart, Pastor of Passion City Church DC, Author of Single, Dating, Engaged, Married and Rest & War
