In Luke 18:27 Jesus replied, "What is impossible with man is possible with God." There are only two possibilities: This is either true, or the God of this book is not real! This is a belief that will change everything about your future!
What is impossible in the normal standard of human life, human intelligence, human ability, the laws of physics as they are normally understood and in the human physical realm--well, with God, it is quite possible!
Jeremiah 32:27 says "I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?" You and I need to memorize Luke 18:27 and Jeremiah 32:27 and we need to ask ourselves "Is anything too hard for me?" When we are hurting and when things are not going our way, "Is anything too hard for me?" is not a question because most of the time our eyes are not on the Lord. They're on our checkbook, they are on our relational problems, they are on our children, or our parents, our schoolwork or job, but they are not on the Lord!
When we are faced with the impossible, we need to understand that what seems so life suckingly important in this moment is not more important than my personal relationship with Jesus. So that's what I'll prioritize, and as I do that, I will face this challenge knowing that nothing is impossible with God! I will hear God say to me, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?"
The truth is, the God of the Bible, the God of creation, the God who began everything in an impossible way, began it all with a word! The Bible says that in the beginning, God spoke and because He spoke, the impossible happened--something was created from nothing!
When Jesus came onto the scene as the very heart and face of God on planet earth, He did the impossible from the beginning: water becomes wine, the blind see, the lame walk. Those who had never seen a sunrise saw God's mercy and grace and the beauty of creation in the touch of Jesus! Those who had never heard the voices of their loved ones or the songs of God in worship, with a word, with a touch, with a smile--the cripple walk and dance!
God is a God who redefines reality. Jesus took what was little, with the lunch of a little boy offered up freely to him, and He took the loaves and the fishes and He did the impossible and He fed 5,000 people! And just to show that little, in the hands of God, is more than enough, there were 12 basketfuls left--that's impossible! Oh wait, nothing's impossible with God! Impossible futures are not impossible when we look up! -Dr. Drew Shofner
