For with God nothing will be impossible.
Theologians have speculated about what is possible for God. For instance, “Is it possible for God to create something so heavy that it would be impossible for Him to lift it?” Such speculations promote endless loops of conjecture without answers. But the Bible tells us all we need to know about God’s ability: “For with God nothing will be impossible.”
For example, an elderly woman past childbearing age gave birth to a son as did an unmarried virgin girl. In both cases, they were told that nothing is impossible for God (Genesis 18:14; Luke 1:37). Jesus made this same point on several cases. He said it was impossible for man to save himself but not impossible for God (Mark 10:24-27). Jesus declared that God could save Him from impending death if it was His will (Mark 14:36). He even said that nothing is impossible for the one who has faith in God (Matthew 17:20). The point of all these examples is the same: We must shift our focus from ourselves and our ability to God and His ability. What is impossible for us is possible for Him.
If you are facing an “impossible” situation today, look to God and trust in His ability. Let His will determine the outcome (Matthew 26:39).
Christ wants not nibblers of the possible, but grabbers of the impossible.
