God loves to do the impossible.
God loves to do big, impossible things we cannot, with our limited human understanding, even fathom or imagine.
He made a donkey talk. (Numbers 22:28)
He raised Lazarus from the dead. (John 11:43-44)
He gave Gideon a meager army of 300 men to defeat the Midian army. (Judges 7:7,16-25)
He took down the walls of Jericho to rubble. (Joshua 6:20)
He helped a teenaged David defeat a 9’ giant with a simple stone. (1 Samuel 17:48-50)
He brought His Son into this world through a virgin. (Luke 1:34-35)
He turned the legalistic and murderous heart of Saul into the loving and mission driven heart of Paul. (Acts 9:1-22)
He conquered death by raising Jesus from the dead. (Matthew 28:6)
With man and his abilities alone.
Until God stepped in.
Because “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Genesis 18:14, Jeremiah 32:27).
“There is nothing too hard for You” (Jeremiah 32:17).
“But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’” (Matthew 19:26, Mark 10:27, Luke 18:27).
God has made our problems and our past His footstool.
God has called our pain and our shame completely healed.
God has replaced our tears and our sorrow with joy.
God has surrounded us with peace.
God has sustained us with grace.
God has saved us with love.
He can do the impossible. In you. For you. Through you.
“I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you” (Matthew 17:20).
It takes the smallest amount of faith to open the door to the biggest miracles.
The impossible becomes possible every time we believe God.
Believe He can do the impossible.
Believe He will do the impossible.
And never lose hope.
“For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37).
