Step into the Impossible

by | Nov 30, 2007 | Woman

“For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37).

The angel Gabriel told Mary that God was planning to do something humanly impossible. All human logic would agree a virgin could not give birth to a child. It is impossible. Yet this is exactly what was to happen.

When God speaks of doing the impossible, it is no longer absurd. When was the last time God did the impossible in your life? When was the last time God spoke to you about what He wanted to do and you were scared to death by its magnitude?

God still does the impossible! Too often we acknowledge our belief that God can do whatever He wants; then we add a safety clause: “But I just don’t think God will do that with me!” We become practical atheists, believing that God can perform miracles but never expecting a miracle in our own lives.

God wanted to bring salvation to all of humanity. It is critical that Mary not only believed God could perform a miracle, but also adjusted her life to the awesome work He planned to do through her.

The difference between a Christian and a moral person is the divine. The difference between a church and a social club is the miraculous.

Some can duplicate the morality of a Christian, but no one can reproduce the miraculous that should be a part of the Christian experience. Do you believe that nothing is impossible for God? Tell us on Facebook.
