It Is Possible
He replied, “What is impossible for people is possible with God.” Luke 18:27
Jesus said this. That’s probably enough for those of us who practice an active faith and walk with Christ. Jesus had just laid down the details for discipleship, and people were in shock. Basically, He had just told a rich young man who wanted to follow Him that he should sell everything that he had and give it to the poor. Of course, the young man couldn’t see how to do that, so Jesus followed it up with a statement of how hard it was for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. When the crowd said,“ Who then can be saved?” Jesus responded with the quote above.
When you are walking with Christ in this daily journey, you will come up against some tough moments and great challenges.
Memorize these words. Bind them to your heart and head. Know them before the challenges hit. Nothing is
impossible with God. Does that mean your impossible situation will always turn out as you want it to? Not at all. The Bible and history are filled with stories of men and women who have walked through some deep valleys, but they all have one thing in common. They didn’t allow their faith to be stolen from them.
Even unto the point of death, they trusted in Jesus.
When my grandfather died in the early sixties, he was hospitalized with cancer, and this once-strong farmer was weak and unable to get out of bed. Knowing he was dying, he asked for my mother and father, who were on either side of his bed, to raise him up so he could sit up in the bed and lift his arms in praise to God. They did, he did, and then he died. He died knowing and believing that nothing is impossible with God.
Never give up your faith in the God of the impossible.
