I just learned that Impossible Possibilities as a phrase is called an oxymoron, where contradictory terms appear in conjunction. In the Scriptures, it holds truth in many aspects.
I don’t know about you, but in my life, I have often faced situations that appear unconquerable and challenges that seem impossible to overcome. But in the midst of my struggles, I always find hope in God’s Word.
I have also come to accept that the journey of faith is one filled with twists and turns, victories, and trials, but it’s precisely in those moments when all seems lost that I realize how our God specializes in making the impossible possible.
Today, we live in a world that often challenges our faith and pushes the boundaries of what we believe is possible, let’s explore the incredible idea of impossibilities turning into possibilities.
Let’s get started!
Anchor Bible verse of the day on Impossible Possibilities
But He said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.Luke 18:27 (NKJV)
In Luke 18:27, Jesus reminds us of the boundless potential of faith in God. He declares that what seems impossible to humanity becomes possible when God is involved.
It reminds us that there are limitations to human capabilities, but those limitations cease to exist when God is in the equation. The impossible, in our eyes, becomes entirely possible when we put our trust in Him.
- Impossible with men: These are situations or challenges that appear insurmountable when viewed solely from a human perspective.
- Possible with God: With God’s intervention and grace, even the most challenging circumstances can be transformed into opportunities for His glory.
Reflection on Impossible Possibilities
Have you ever faced a situation that seemed utterly hopeless and impossible to resolve? Perhaps it was a personal challenge, a career setback, or a health issue. Maybe it’s the death of a dear one. We’ve all been there, and at times, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and disheartened.
In such moments, we tend to question God, and we ask so many questions.
But the beauty of our faith lies in the fact that when we trust in God, the impossible becomes possible.
In Mark 9:23, Jesus encourages us, saying:
If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.
This is a reminder that our faith plays a crucial role in transforming impossibilities into possibilities. When we wholeheartedly believe in God’s power and His willingness to help us, we tap into a wellspring of hope.
Beloved, it’s important to remember that impossible situations often serve as opportunities for God to showcase His glory and power. The fact is, the Bible is packed with accounts of individuals who faced insurmountable odds but were ultimately victorious through their unwavering faith in God.
Consider David and Goliath, the parting of the Red Sea, or the healing of the woman with the issue of blood. In each of these stories, the impossible yielded to the possibility through faith.
Today, as you ponder the theme of impossible possibilities, I want you to think about the challenges you’re currently facing. What are the circumstances in your life that appear unchangeable or beyond your control?
Think about someone you know and the troubles they are going through now.
See, it’s precisely in these moments that you have the opportunity to witness God’s miraculous hand at work.
If you’re facing moments in your life and you feel overwhelmed, to the point of thinking there’s no way forward, don’t give up.
It could be a daunting medical diagnosis, a fractured relationship, a financial crisis, or a dream that seems light-years away. These are the moments when we need to remember everything is possible. YES, IT’S VERY POSSIBLE!
One Bible verse that complements Luke 18:27 beautifully is Philippians 4:13:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
This should remind us that through Christ, even the most insurmountable obstacles can be conquered. Our impossibilities can turn into incredible possibilities when we place our trust in God.
