He Said It – Impossible?

He Said It – Impossible?

So, if we’re completely clear on what God’s saying to us, are raring to follow it, and have a bunch of people supporting us in it, it’s going to be like a walk in the park. Right?

Well… Ummmm…. Maybe not always.

The truth is, sometimes a part of the plan is difficulty.

You see, God can make anything happen, whichever way He wants to. Your Bible is full of examples. But because of the not-all-powerful human perspective that we have, some stuff looks downright impossible. In reality, we can be following God’s plans as well as is humanly possible, but it may still feel like nothing’s happening.

Go and read Romans 4:17-22. Abraham must have certainly felt like God had promised Him something impossible, at times. But he never let those feelings affect his belief that God would pull through with the nation He promised.

That might be easier said than done. But it’s all about turning back to God every time His plan seems uncertain. If that happens, re-visit His original promise and ask Him to keep your faith clear. Isaiah 55:11 is where God says, “It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it”. Hold on to that promise. Whatever God has promised you will happen. No matter how unlikely it looks. It’s coming.

What Now?

Flip back a few days to Saturday’s reading, and take time to rethink what it means to stick to your faith in difficult, or even impossible, circumstances. Write Isaiah 55:11 above that reading.

Verse of the Day:

‘…He did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise…’     Romans 4:20
