“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.'”
Is this word in your vocabulary? Do you use it or think it quite often? Pastor Snyder says it isn’t in God’s vocabulary. He goes on to say:
“…it makes perfect sense that if the God of the Bible exists, then there’s nothing, literally nothing, that’s impossible. By definition, God excludes the realm of the impossible. Water into wine? No problem. Quelling a storm? Easy. Bringing dead bodies back to life? Done. That’s the paradigm we need to use when viewing life’s problems and fears. In fact, it could be said that the job description of Christians in the world has always been to attempt the impossible with God’s help. What more motivation could God give us to help us get up in the morning with a view toward the positive and with great confidence in prayer?”
TODAY’S PRAYER: Ask God to drive out entirely from your mind the slightest thought that your need, no matter how profound, approaches the impossible.
