Matt. 28:18  And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”

Consider how Jesus demonstrated this claim in a few short chapters in Mark:

Teaching – Mk. 1:22   They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Unclean/Demonic spirits – Mk. 1:27  …A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.”

Sickness – Mk. 1:31,34  And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her …And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was.

Leprosy – Mk. 1:41-42  Moved with compassion, Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cleansed.

Authority/Power to forgive sins – Mk. 2:10-12  But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—he said to the paralytic— “I say to you, rise, pick up your bed, and go home.” And he rose and immediately picked up his bed and went out before them all, so that they were all amazed.

Lord of Sabbath:  Mk. 2:28  So the Son of Man is lord even of the Sabbath.”

Deformed bodies:  Mk. 3:5  (Jesus) said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.

Nature – Mk. 4:41  And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even wind and sea obey him?”

Legion of demons – Mk. 5:15  And they came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man, the one who had had the legion, sitting there, clothed and in his right mind, and they were afraid.

What is your need?  You can trust Him with it.  Bring it to Jesus with confidence.
