The God of the Impossible

The God of the Impossible

by Suzanne D. Williams

For with God nothing shall be impossible. (Lk 1:37) 

Mary, when tasked with carrying the Christ child, asked the angel about the impossibility of it, and the angel laid to rest the wishes of God, once and for all. There is nothing impossible to God.

This is a powerful truth, yet in our modern lives, we’ve relegated the miraculous to a handful of rare instances, half of them strictly from coincidence. We’ve forgotten the supernatural power of God, written about on page after page. The Bible begins with the impossible – God forming the sun and moon by the power of His word, creating animals … man … from dust. Fashioning a woman from Adam’s rib. (Ge 2:22) Fast forward within its pages, and a donkey talks; the sun stands still; and the dead come to life again.

Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear. (Is 59:11)

God’s actions are not accidental nor haphazard. He knows what He’s capable of, and the Scriptures tell us He’s willing. This is the essence of faith, to trust that what we cannot see, what has been deemed impossible, can and will come true. (Eph 3:20; Heb 11:1) Jesus Himself said, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do.” (Jn 14:12)

Often, we are too conscious of our shortcomings. We allow God the magnificence of doing the impossible, only, once in a while and never through us. But God works in the physical world through men. Our faith should not be in ourselves, but in the power of the Holy Spirit to work through us. God is sufficient, more-than-enough for any situation. (Eph 3:20; Php 3:10; Col 1:11)

And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. (Act 4:33)

I admit sometimes the impossible seems huge. There are things in my life I’d like corrected, but I can’t, as yet, picture them that way. I strengthen my faith in the meantime and remind myself daily that, “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Php 4:13) All means “all.” It includes my health, my finances, the life of my daughter, and my relationship with my spouse. It means when my water pump needs an expensive repair right before Christmas and my car’s tires are bald, when there’s no gifts under my tree because I owe money to him and her and them, God is big enough for that.

I’ve seen great things, impossible things, happen in the lives of my friends this year, and I rejoice. I will go into 2018 with that same heavenly praise, believing for great things in my life. I will press toward God and trust Him for the impossible. It’s exciting when you grab hold of it. Right now, unseen to me, God already has the situation under control, and at the moment I need it most, the answer will come.

The Savior arrived in that manner. While shepherds watched their flocks by night, while wisemen studied the stars in the Far East, under the nose of an evil king, He was born to a girl who chose to believe. Not so impossible, after all.
