God makes the impossible possible

December 11, 2020

When Gabriel told Mary about Elizabeth’s pregnancy, he said, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” (Luke 1:36)

Those words are also for you today. Whatever you are facing, God has an answer that seems impossible to you on earth, but in the heavenly realm God sees things another way. He sees your brokenness, your loneliness, your heartache, and your pain with great possibilities. God sees that out of the ashes of your hurt, new life will rise again. There is no limit to what God can do. He is, after all, God! The One who can part the seas with just a blink of his eye can also part the discord in your life. He can make a path for you to walk through to safety on the other side as He did for the Israelites with the Red Sea when they were fleeing from Pharaoh.

Nothing is impossible for God. He refines your faith as you learn to completely depend on Him. Don’t tell Him how you want your problem fixed. He knows a better way. Thank Him that things are not working out in your time plan, but in His. Thank Him for refining your faith as you sit back, relax, and watch Him take over this concern.

You are the Lord’s servant. Let it be to you as He says. Ask God for the grace you need to trust Him with your life. Fall back on Him, as confidently as you would fall into a swimming pool, knowing that the water will always catch you.

God will always catch you. Grace makes sure of that.

Nothing is impossible for God.

A sinful race is now blessed with grace.
