With God all Things are Possible
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”Matthew 19:26
Isn’t it great that God is all loving and compassionate and all things are possible for him? We know this is true, but how come life doesn’t always go the way we like and we don’t understand why our loving God doesn’t intervene and make things right? I believe every Christian has probably asked this question, especially after endless prayers pleading to the Lord from our heart. Living as creatures of limited knowledge, we cannot always understand the infinite knowledge of God. It can be difficult to see and fully understand, and we cannot always see God’s plan for the future.
It is important that we trust the Lord to lead our life no matter what happens in life because we are ambassadors for Christ. It is important that we pray for every need we encounter and know that all things are possible for God. This way we will never limit God’s ability but will have the faith to put everything in his hands. Could we have trust if all things were not possible for God? We have a God who loves us perfectly with grace and blessings to those in his family, and all things are possible through God; therefore when praying don’t limit his divine power and love by our limitations. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not own your own understanding, (Proverbs 3:5-6)
And the heavens proclaim his righteousness, for God himself is judge. (Psalm 50:6) If all things were not possible for God, how could he be God? If he were not omnipresent with infinite wisdom and with a heart of love, how could he make perfect judgments? If all things weren’t possible for God how could he be sovereign over all creation? Knowing all things are possible for God gives peace and security to those in his family and enables the faith to put our life in his hands. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
One thing God will not do is override our freewill, because without freewill how would love exist? However if knowing all things are possible for God, and we can do all things through Christ, then we can minister to others, guided by the Spirit, and the power of love can change hearts. With the Spirit’s power and love we have the greatest chance of touching hearts, but it takes persistence, love, and wisdom. We have to stand strong and secure in Christ and display love and patience.
Today remember all things are possible for God, so don’t worry about the physical things in life, but be concerned about the spiritual, pointing people’s hearts to God. Don’t forget that Holy Spirit changes people, we don’t change people we show them God’s love and a caring heart. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. (John 13:35)
Prayer: Lord, help me to turn everything in my life over to you, knowing all things are possible and your love is perfect. Guide me with your wisdom, your power, and your love, to be a light in this world. I pray that the Spirit will lead me to be a powerful witness for Christ. In Jesus name, Amen
