Devotion 12-4-23 For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37. What is your – "not possible?" We all have at least one thing we are certain is "not possible," because we look to ourselves or other human beings. In our physical realm, many things are apparently impossible. This verse, in the first chapter of Luke, is spoken by an angel, to Mary, concerning the virgin conception of Jesus, the Son of God. Impossible! But it was not impossible, because it involved God. The same "concept phrase" is used three other times in the Bible. First, Genesis 18:14 – God, speaking to Abraham about Sarah's pregnancy at 90 -"Is anything too difficult for God?" Second, in Jeremiah 32:17, in the midst of the Babylonian siege of Jerusalem that would result in a 70-year exile, Jeremiah prophesied of God arranging the Jews return to Jerusalem - "... nothing is too difficult for You." Third, in Matthew 19:26, Jesus discusses rich men coming into the kingdom and He says, "... with God all things are possible." So the question is again, what is you're "not possible?" It may be that you want something outside of God's will. In that case, yes, it is not possible. But if your desire is within God's will, then it becomes possible when you involve God. Pray, trust God, ask Him for more faith. Ask Him for your "impossible." Then, do something about it yourself only if you are supposed to do something. Most often, we interfere, cluttering up the results with our own efforts to fix the problem. Instead, pray, trust God, be wholly right with God yourself, and take your hands off the "impossible." Let God work in His time, in His way, to bring it about. Then, He gets the glory and honor and praise. And you get to see God at work, in a front row seat, watching with awe and pleasure as God intervenes in your personal life!
