Making the Impossible Possible

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible.” – (Mark 10:27)

 

Though Jesus was speaking to His disciples in regard to a rich man entering the kingdom of God, this applies to all that He asks us to do. For whatever He calls us, He also equips and empowers us, despite the seeming impossibility that lies before us. On our own, we are ill-equipped for the road He asks us to travel. Even when we are called to operate in an area of our strength, there always seems to be an element of impossibility or difficulty so that we must rely on the Lord and His wisdom and strength, to effectively complete what He has asked us to do. May we go forth trusting in Him to make the seemingly impossible, possible, where He has called us to go.

 

So often we’re called,Making the Impossible Possible

to rise to a task;

much larger than us,

yet the Lord has asked.

Where there seems no way,

in Christ we can do;

far more than we think,

for His word is true.

When He calls us forth,

He’ll too, make a way;

for us to rise up,

by faith, we obey.

Impossible things,

no longer are so;

rather, steps of faith,

to help us to grow.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that though much is impossible on our own, with You, all things are possible. Thank You that what You call us to do, You also equip and empower us to accomplish. Thank You that You never leave us nor forsake us, but You remain present, wherever we are. Forgive us for our fear and hesitation when the road before us seems impossible, and teach us to trust You more so that we might see the obstacles through Your eyes. Lead us to love others with Your love that knows no limits, and help many to discover a personal relationship with You as a result. Be glorified O God, as we rise up and trust You to make the impossible, possible. Amen.
