Remember, what is humanly impossible is possible with God. – (Luke 18:27, VOICE)
He replied, “What is impossible for people is possible with God.” – (Luke 18:27, NLT)
Jesus answered, “God can do things that are not possible for people to do.” – (Luke 18:27, ERV)
The mountains that lie before us, no matter how great or small, can be climbed or moved when we rely on Christ. In our own strength, there is much that is seemingly impossible that stands before us, beckoning to be accomplished. Through human insight and understanding, it seems we may as well stop before we even start. However, if God has called us to something, He will lead us through it. The seemingly impossible becomes possible, as we choose to be led by faith and not by sight. God’s grace, goodness, provision and strength, carry us further than we ever thought we might go. May we look to the Lord and be led by faith, rather than staying stuck on the seeming impossibilities that stand in front of us.
Mountains before us,
That seem far too high;
Passable in Christ,
When on Him, we rely.
No height that’s too great,
Nor valley too low;
All that’s before us,
With us, God will go.
So trust in the Lord,
And see what He’ll do;
Mountains will be moved,
As we’re carried through.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that what is impossible for us, is possible with You. Thank You that in You, all things are possible. Thank You that You do not call us to anything that You are not also willing to strengthen, equip and carry us through. Forgive us for our fear and lack of faith when we see the seemingly impossible standing in front of us. Teach us to trust You more, so that we would see the seeming impossibilities as opportunities for Your power to be demonstrated in incredible new ways. Show us how to love others in ways that help them to see the possibilities before them rather than the obstacles. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we trust You to do the impossible in our lives, as only You can. Amen.
