Have you ever noticed how noisy impossibilities are? They insistently push into our thoughts as they loom in front of us. The moment they intrude, we can block them through the truth of God’s word and His promises.
I love to think about Mary after the angel Gabriel spoke to her, about how she would conceive in her womb, and bring for a Son whose name would be Jesus. He followed it with an amazing promise that we can also stand in.
Luke 1:37 says, “For with God nothing will be impossible.” Her immediate response was in verse 38. It is a verse I have written in the front of my Bible. It says, “…Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word…”
Here is a new song called Nothing Is Impossible
You can move the mountains. You can calm the sea. You can split the skies and rescue me. Nothing is impossible, no nothing at all. You created everything before man’s fall. Though it seems impossible to me. I must remember Who You are as my Savior and King.
You rule in my heart through Your word supreme. I just have to believe-trust for You will faithful be. Nothing is too hard for You, no nothing at all. You delight to strengthen me through trials that reveal Yourself to me.
Your character is forged in me. Your anvil strong and true. You bring me through the fiery trials—my faith refined-secured. Your will is accomplished as I yield to Your hand. My thoughts are united with Your purpose and plans. As I walk in the path You choose You establish my heart. I serve You with thanksgiving and praise. You alone are worthy, O my Lord.
Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” We cannot look at our impossibility through the eyes of ‘now’ faith. We see it. We have to look to the Lord.
1 Peter 1:8 says, “Whom having not seen you love. Though now do you do see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.” What happened when the children of Israel looked at their Red Sea impossibility? They were overwhelmed and fearful.
When we look through the eyes of our understanding of Who God is at all times, we can stand unshaken in our faith because our faith is founded in His faithfulness.
Here are two great verses to etch into your heart’s walls. 2 Timothy 2:13 says, “If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.” We know from Titus 1:2 that it is impossible for God to lie.
2 Peter 1:4 says that we become partakers of God’s divine. How? The verse says, “By which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises…” When we stand in His word, keeping our eyes on the Lord, the looming impossibility fades into the background. It is still there but it has been silenced.
