Nothing Impossible with God

For with God nothing will be impossible,” Luke 1:37.

In this life, as we know it, there are encounters that challenge our physical and at times our spiritual strength or endurance. We may face adversity that test our faith and determine our strength. It is important as Christians that we remember Who our trust lies within. It is not in our own power or ability that trials are overcome, but by the power and might of the Almighty God.

In our lives and the lives of others, we may be able to pinpoint various “valley” experiences and “mountaintop” occurrences; euphoric highs and tumultuous lows. But we must be mindful that God is not only present when good things happen in our lives, but He is there when we go through the challenging times as well. He is not a fair-weather god, He is the omnipresent God who promises never to leave nor forsake His children … and He doesn’t (Hebrews 13:5).

When we aim high and set goals for ourselves, we shouldn’t let naysayers discourage us from working towards the things God said we can achieve. The Bible states in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” As long as we operate in His will and trust in the Lord, God will withhold no good thing (Psalm 84:11).

As we meditate on the truth and assurance that God can do anything and there is nothing impossible with Him, let us receive that Word. It takes more than just knowing what the Bible says; let it come alive within you. When someone offers a gift to you, it’s not truly yours until you accept it. Jesus died for a fallen world; He gave Himself as a ransom for all. And when He returns as the Bridegroom for His bride, only those committed to the Lord will go with Him. Accept all that the God has to give. Our union with God is a spiritual marriage, you’d be amazed at the power unlocked when you answer Him, “Yes, Lord, I do.”
