God Still Does the Impossible

A christian

Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37). There is nothing impossible with him when He has determined to do it. Anything he determines to do He can accomplish because there is nothing impossible with him. But that does not mean He will do everything believers want Him to do, because some things are not included in His plan. 

God visited Abraham and Sarah, his wife. Sarah was barren and God promised that she will have a child. Sarah doubted but is there anything too hard for the Lord, God asked (Genesis 18:14). The obvious answer is “Of course not!” This question reveals much about God. Make it a habit to insert your specific needs into this question: “Is this problem in my life too hard for the Lord?” “Is this habit I’m trying to break too hard for him?” “Is the communication problem I’m having too hard for him?” Asking the question this way reminds you that God is personally involved in your life and nudges you to ask for his power to help you.

God helps you and does the impossible in your life through your faith. He wants you to have faith as a mustard seed to remove mountains and problems (Matthew 17:20). If you are facing problems that seem as big and immovable as a mountain, turn your eyes from the mountain and look to Jesus for more faith. Then you will be able to overcome the obstacles that stand in your way.

To overcome obstacles in your life, God wants you to be persistent in prayer. When we are living in touch with the Lord and praying in the Spirit, we can have the assurance of answered prayer before the answer comes. But our prayer shouldn’t be based on our interests. Jesus prayed with God’s interests in mind. If we receive answers to prayer, who will get the credit? When we pray, we can express our desires, but we should want God’s will above ours. Check yourself to see if your prayers focus on your interests or his.

God is powerful and still does the impossible but it is easy to trust God when we see his mighty acts (the Israelites saw many), but after a while, in the routine of daily life, his strength may appear to diminish. God doesn’t change, but our view of him often does. The monotony of day-by-day living lulls us into forgetting how powerful God can be but nothing is impossible with him.
