The God of Impossibilities

Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
 
Throughout the story of our faith, as seen in the scriptures, God has demonstrated on numerous occasions his power over all aspects of human life. He often worked his power in those who exercised faith in him beyond their unbelief. Sometimes, our human senses become the powerful forces that limit our ability to see God as the One who is all able. In such situations, our mountains become so huge they block our view of God. We become desperate, anxious and run to all places but God, for help.
 
Abraham and Sarah were well advanced in age before God called them. Yet, she conceived and bore a son to Abraham at age 90, according to the promise of God. Science and logic have no explanation for this. When the people of Israel got to the Red Sea, God commanded Moses to stretch out his staff onto the sea. As he obeyed, the sea parted into two, and the children of Israel walked on dry ground in the middle of the sea. The story is told of the boy David, who killed the Goliath, the Philistine giant. Consider the disciples of Jesus who were but common people, with less or no education, yet God used them to shake the world, starting a movement of faith in Christ in which we have become partakers. Time would be too short to list all the mighty deeds of God.
 
What has become a torn in your life? What issue have you battled with for a long time? I want to encourage you to trust God with that challenge of yours. He is more than able to meet you at the point of your needs. The unfortunate situation is that many Christians make God the spare tire.   He becomes our last resort when our sources fail. We put him on the back burner, and sometimes forget to involve him in our affairs.
 
“…With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26.
 
Humans will always have limitations, but God is limitless. The impossibilities in our lives shall become possibilities when Jesus is invited into the situation. Therefore, trust in the Lord, and allow him to turn your ashes into beauty.
 
PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I place at the foot of the cross all my anxieties and frustrations. I invite you into my battles. Help me to receive the victory you won for me on the cross.
