Doing the impossible

What does it mean that “something’s impossible”?  Generally speaking I think it means that whatever you’re thinking about is beyond the capability of any person or people…or that it lies outside the bounds of natural science and laws.  I don’t know about you, but that seems like a great place for the Lord of Creation to step in.  I really don’t need to arm or equip myself with more human or natural resources when dealing with the “impossible” kind of problems.  I remember as a kid there was something called “superglue”.  We thought it was fun to glue things together with superglue, just to find out how impossible the bond really was to break.  Then there was something called “superglue remover”, the only sure way to fix things.  I think we need to come to the place where we welcome our champion, the Lord Jesus Christ, to move with freedom through our lives.  So many of our needs are of the “impossible” type: healing, salvation, loving the unlovely, forgiving those who hurt….even routine impossibilities like raising or children and loving our spouses touch most of our lives.


So lets not be shy about coming to our God for help…doing the impossible is His specialty!


Matthew 19:25 When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, "Who then can be saved?" 26 Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."


Luke 1:36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. 37For nothing is impossible with God."
