I believe in possibility! You do too! I know that because human beings were given a spirit of possibility from the One who designed them. God knew we would run out of steam. He knew we would lose sometimes. He knew we would need a way to come back and so He confirmed this. With human beings, it is impossible. With God, all things are possible. Wow! What does that really mean?

For me it means that on those days when I want to throw in the towel, make a list of all the reasons why something I hope for simply can’t be, I have to turn around. I have to turn and face God and let go of my disillusion. I have to look for what He brings to the table because I’ve already exhausted my ideas, my talents, and my bank account. So, what’s next?

Here are a couple thoughts to consider:

You Have to Go Beyond What You See

Frances Ridley Havergal wrote: “In perplexities, when we cannot tell what to do, when we cannot understand what is going on around us, let us be calmed and steadied and made patient by the thought that what is hidden from us is not hidden from God.”

What that means is that you have amazing possibility for good to happen. You have infinitely more resources than you realize. You have the Creator of all things right by your side and nothing escapes His notice. Nothing about you is a surprise. Nothing gets in the way of the plans He already has for your good. You simply have to let go of needing to know how He will do it, and when it will happen. You have to let God be God. He is already working on every possibility for you.


Attempt the Impossible

F.B.Meyer, British theologian and Baptist preacher, wrote, “We never test the resources of God until we attempt the impossible.”

Most of us start out our career life with youthful enthusiasm. We think everything is possible and that nothing is going to stop us. It’s the perfect attitude. It may be the most God-given attitude we ever have. The problem is that as soon as we buck up against obstacles, or things we worked for fall apart, we imagine that’s it, that the game is over.

How did we lose the desire to win so quickly? What knocked the fight out of us so that we came to the conclusion we must have been wrong. We must not be meant to be or do or become what we hoped we’d be. 

Our challenge and our obstacle then is the one we face in the mirror. We stop believing that with God all things are possible. We stop trying to test the resources of the Godhead to get things done. All the while, God is cheering you on, beckoning you to try another way and not give up. 

If you need more possibility, then say your prayers, trust in God’s endless love for you and His unlimited resources, and tell the one you see in the mirror that you have more to do. You have not yet attempted the impossible!
