Luke 18:27 New Living Translation
(Jesus) replied, “What is impossible for people is possible with God.”
IMPOSSIBLE: 1. Incapable of having existence or of occurring; 2. Not capable of being accomplished; 3. Unacceptable, intolerable; 4. extremely difficult to deal with or tolerate.
POSSIBLE: 1. Capable of happening, existing, or being true without contradicting proven facts, laws, or circumstances; 2. Capable of occurring or being done without offense to character, nature, or custom. 3. Capable of favorable development.
Perhaps you are in a situation that looks extremely difficult. Maybe you fell it cannot be accomplished. To the human eye this may be true, however, God doesn’t see things the way we do. God is the great I AM. He existed before creation. He created everything we can see all around us. Is there anything that could possibly be impossible to Him?
Knowing the Creator of the Universe personally will tend to change your perspective on a few things. I know a few things about the character of God and one thing I know is that it’s impossible for Him to lie; according to Hebrews 6:18 that is an unchangeable truth. There is no falsehood in Almighty God. This I believe by faith.
Doesn’t it seem strange that we would place our trust in so many people who are naturally prone to lie and yet not give credence to the maker of all things? He does as He wishes at any time. That which seems impossible, is possible in the economy of God. If you can bring yourself to trust in God you can believe in Him to do that which seems totally illogical and yes, even impossible. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
