What is possible?
WHAT ARE WE TALKING ABOUT HERE?
I know, (sigh) it’s a redundant question. But it’s only redundant because it needs boundaries. It needs explanation. We can’t explore what is possible without knowing more about the subject at hand.
“For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37
This statement was said to Mary.
She had questions, maybe even doubts, about the message that she would give birth to the Messiah without being with a man.
Of course–she was standing in the presence of an angel. Yes…the angel Gabriel. And HE had been sent from the throne room of Heaven where God spoke a message for Mary’s ears only.
He (Gabriel) said to her, in THAT scenario, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
What is possible with God?
Things that are possible are rarely worthy of a passing mention. But the impossible? Now that makes history!
- not able to occur, exist, or be done.
Then God did it.
Jesus Christ was born. He found people doubting around him too. What is possible? They wondered as well.
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27
Of course things look impossible to us! We are small, fragile and human. We can but only speak what we’ve seen and heard; which is severely limiting in the big picture.
God is a Spirit. He knows all things forward and past, inside and out, up and down. He has the power to make His Will come to pass. When our desires line up with His Will, IT–the impossible–happens.
What is the most impossible thing you can think of?
Coming back from total devastation? Total destruction? Total isolation? Total death?
It’s the most impossible thing I can think of.
It is also the state of every natural human being living without God-given spirit inside them because they have not yet believed Romans 10:9-10.
“That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:” Ephesians 2:12
We were goners.
The Bible also says we were in bondage and slaves to sin. We were dead in its trespasses. We were destroyed and living in a dark place. Our connection, severed.
In short–it sucked.
Then Jesus Christ came and brought light into the world again. He healed people’s diseases, gave hope to thousands and life to a not just a few. Real physical life!
So–of course– the devil had to get rid of him. Satan liked the dark world he’d made. He liked humanities lost connection. When we’re not connected he can convince us that our dreams are impossible. Our healings too. He thought he’d won by dealing us our death-blow. Humanity had lost. Reconciling us was impossible…
“… in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh (near) by the blood of Christ. Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:…For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.”
So what now?
What is possible with God?
It’s a simple question, but now I have an even better one?
God, if you were me, what do you think is possible for my life?
Make the impossible happen in your life today.
