ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE

“What is impossible with man is possible with God.” Luke 18:27
            This verse, in its context, is speaking of salvation; however, it does speak of a very basic and powerful truth regarding Almighty God.  There is nothing that is impossible for Him.  No thing.  Whether it be salvation or the healing of a person with a terminal disease, God is more than capable of accomplishing it.  Matthew phrases the same statement in the same scene with the rich man slightly different:  “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  (19:26)
            What is this whole thing about a camel going through the eye of a needle found in verse 24?  The camel was the largest animal in Israel at that time.  It is widely accepted that Jesus is doing nothing more than using a “figure of speech or hyperbole to exaggerate for emphasis.  Christ used this technique at other times when He referred to a ‘plank’ in one’s eye (Matthew 7:3-5) or swallowing a camel (Matthew 23:24).”1
            The point of all this is that salvation is available to all who would shed themselves of self and be willing to follow Christ.  Rich or poor, young or old, male or female, sick or well, it matters not.  God created all things, including man.  Their propensity to go against God’s will was evident from the start.  God had foreknowledge of this and had a plan from the beginning to make things right again.  When the fullness of time had come He sent His own Son to die in our place, thus making salvation available to all who would avail themselves of it.  Always remember, nothing in this life is impossible for your God.  Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
