We have so many friends right now facing what seems like impossible challenges. Unsolvable health problems, financial crises, family struggles.
They try everything they know and the situation only grows worse with no end in sight. They feel helpless, more than a little frustrated, I’d guess even with God sometimes.
Heck, I would. Actually, I have.
I’d guess you’ve had those times. Maybe you’re facing one right now. You’ve tried everything and nothing has worked. And you’re ready to give up.
That’s what I love about Jesus’ reply to a question about impossibility.
“What is impossible with men is possible with God.”
I can’t tell you how many times holding onto that promise has seen me through a dark night of despair until the sun dawned. In the midst of some impossible challenges, knowing that though this is impossible for me it’s child’s play for God, has made all the difference.
He created all things so he can recreate them as he chooses.
He may not always give you exactly what you ask. But he will give you what he knows is best.
Nothing you face today is impossible to the one who sees it all from the beginning.
Never call anything impossible.
I have and gladly been proven wrong.
*Luke 18:27 (NIV)
