Count on God to Do the Impossible

Description

It doesn’t matter how impossible a situation may seem; you can be certain that what God starts in your life, he will finish. Discover how nothing is impossible with God.

“For there is nothing that God cannot do.” (Luke 1:37, GNT)

Never let an impossible situation intimidate you. Why? Because nothing is impossible with God.

The Bible says, “For there is nothing that God cannot do” (Luke 1:37 GNT).

Instead of being intimidated by a seemingly impossible situation, let it motivate you—to pray more, believe more, trust more, wait more, expect more, and depend on God more.

It doesn’t matter how impossible a situation may seem; you can be certain that “he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion” (Philippians 1:6 NIV). What God starts in your life, he will finish.

If you were to take the dictionary out of my office and look up the word “impossible,” you would find it isn’t in there—because I cut it out. I decided that if it’s not in God’s dictionary, it’s not going to be in mine.

Hudson Taylor, a missionary from the 1800s, said this about God doing the impossible in our lives: "There are three stages to every great work of God; first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done."

But Satan doesn’t want you to believe that nothing is impossible with God. He’ll tell you over and over, “Who do you think you are? You can’t do that. What makes you think you can be a man or woman of God?” When you believe and trust God for the impossible in your life, it’s an embarrassment for the Devil.

Maybe you’re in what looks like an impossible situation right now. Look to God and rely on his promises, and watch your situation move from impossible to possible—and then to done.

Talk It Over

What would you like God to do in your life that seems impossible right now?

If you truly believed that nothing was impossible with God, how would this next week look different for you?

When have you witnessed God doing the impossible, whether in your life or someone else’s?

Have you trusted God’s promise of salvation?

God can do the seemingly impossible in your life, and that starts with your salvation. Have you trusted him to forgive your sins and accept you into his family? If you’re ready to commit your life to Jesus, then pray this prayer:

“Dear Jesus, you have promised that if I believe in you, everything I’ve ever done wrong will be forgiven, I will learn the purpose of my life, and you will accept me into your eternal home in heaven one day.

“I confess my sin, and I receive you into my life as my Lord and Savior. Today, I’m turning every part of my life over to you. I want to follow you and do what you tell me to do.

“Jesus, I am grateful for your love and for your sacrifice that makes it possible for me to join you in heaven. I know I don’t deserve it. And I thank you that I don’t have to earn or work for my salvation, because I know I never could. I want to use the rest of my life to serve you instead of serving myself. I humbly commit my life to you, and I ask you to save me and accept me into your family. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

If you just prayed to accept Jesus, please email me at Rick@PastorRick.com and let me know. I’d like to send you some free materials to help you start your journey with Jesus.
