We serve a God of the impossible. Do you truly believe this? As you say your prayers, do you pray within the realm of possibility or impossibility? Do you realize that God’s abilities go beyond your situation, limitations, and even other people? Fears and worries creep in when our faith is limited to what we can do within our own ability, ultimately accepting a limited view of God. God is not human. He is not confined to the four walls of our boxed in independent view of what we think is realistically possible. God says hold onto my promises. Hold onto faith as small as a mustard seed, because that alone is enough faith to watch mountains move and giants fall.
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
The God I serve…
Enables the barren to give forth life. (Genesis 16)
The lame to walk (Acts 3)
The blind to see (Mark 8)
God knows your most intimate desires and with compassion and tenderness envelopes you in His arms. He feels your pain, as His dearly beloved child. Even in the quiet recesses of your heart… God sees. He cares, He knows what you are going through as you quietly walk the road that is placed before you. Insurmountable and defeating, you wonder how is it possible to get through? How is it possible to overcome a hurdle that feels unfair and impenetrable? You plow forward, hoping for some form of life support. Some hint that God hears your prayers. That you are not alone.
Pray beyond yourself.
Stop doubting and believe.
Pray to a God that hears, and hold on to the promise that “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) Even if your situation seems unfruitful in itself, God can use even your biggest trials for purpose. Joseph was abandoned by those who were supposed to be the closest to him, his family. Not just abandoned but discarded as though he was trash. He was sold into slavery, unknowing of his fate. Yet, God had bigger plans in store for this rough situation.
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.
Keep on praying. Keep on believing. God is bigger than your situation. You are not walking this journey alone.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
