Sometimes the things we face in life that are so compelling that we find it hard to believe things can be any other way for us. We may know of someone who is sick, homeless, or in a difficult relationship. We may know of someone who does not know the Lord. We may be held by something from our past that continues to live on in our present. Whatever your thing may be, we often look at our circumstances and find it hard to believe things can be different for us. When you find it hard to believe something, it means you have found it easy to believe that something is impossible.
Scripture tells us something like this in Luke 1:18 when Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist had a conversation with an angel who told him he would be father to John. Scripture says, “And Zacharias said to the angel, how shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years?” Zacharias was saying fathering a child at his age and his wife having a child at her age was simply impossible. We are past all that. I want you to know that we may be past some things in our lives for sure, but nothing is past possible with God. Nothing.
If you want to live with the understanding that no thing is impossible with God, you must learn to live with the knowledge that God is also the God of nothing. You see, before any thing existed at all, God existed. So, if He existed before a thing existed, then nothing had to be made possible by Him just like any other thing was made possible by Him. When God tells us no thing is impossible for Him, it is more than mere words; it is His Word in which all things are possible.
Many of us believe like Zacharias. We look at our situations, and we say it is past possible for this thing to happen. But like with Zacharias, there is also an angel in our lives telling us to be ready for God’s plans for our future. The angel is there to remind us that all things are made from some things that are currently no thing until God makes it something of it.
So, as you live out your life and the challenges that are before you each day, learn to ask the Lord to take the things that are nothing in your life and to make them something so that you can live joyfully with anything that happens with you. The angel responded to Zacharias’ unbelief by saying “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and to bring you these glad tidings.” God was saying to him, I am about to take nothing and make something great, so receive this blessing with gladness and joy!
You have your situation, I have mine, and others have theirs. No matter what we face, if we involve the Lord in our lives in any way, we can learn to live with the understanding that no thing that He tells us is impossible for Him. And unlike Zacharias, who thought that since it was past possible for him it had to be past possible for God too, let’s live as if nothing is just a something that is possible but just not yet. Wait then, expecting to have what is yet to come because with God no thing is impossible, and all things are possible to those who believe on Him. Live a Delivered Life. Love you.
