The God of the Impossible

My God is the God of the impossible.

Abraham and Sarah were advanced in age when he was promised a son and that he would become the father of a great nation. And yet, it came to pass as promised by God to Abraham.

Moses stuttered and was afraid of speaking in public. He thought it impossible that he could stand up to the Pharaoh. And yet, he did deliver God’s messages to him until he let the people of Israel go.

Many of those called by God to be judges, prophets and kings of His people Israel deemed themselves unworthy of the call. They were either the lowliest, the youngest, the unschooled, the unlettered, the poor, the outcasts. And yet, it was through these improbable choices that God accomplished the impossible for His people.

Mary was told that she wold bear a son. She downright said that this was impossible since she was a virgin. And yet, she did bear a son and called Him Jesus – the Son of the Most High.

Jesus gathered around him a motley crowd of fishermen and ordinary folks to send out and proclaim the Kingdom of God. And they surprised even themselves at what they were able to accomplish in Jesus’ name.

If someone had told me as a young the story of my life. I would have said “Impossible!” And yet, my life has taken so many impossible turns, it could only be because God is actively involved and active in my life.

Yes, with God nothing is impossible.

The Lord speaks of peace to his people.
~ Psalm 85
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich
to enter the Kingdom of heaven.
Again I say to you,
it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle
than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God.”
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said,
“Who then can be saved?”
Jesus looked at them and said,
“For men this is impossible,
but for God all things are possible.”
Then Peter said to him in reply,
“We have given up everything and followed you.
What will there be for us?”
Jesus said to them, “Amen, I say to you
that you who have followed me, in the new age,
when the Son of Man is seated on his throne of glory,
will yourselves sit on twelve thrones,
judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters
or father or mother or children or lands
for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more,
and will inherit eternal life.
But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.”
Matthew 19:23-30
