Are you sure it’s impossible?


“And he said,

‘The things which are impossible with men, are possible with God.’”

Luke 18:27

Thought for the Week:

What are you expecting? Are you getting it?

Have you ever wondered if we get what we expect, sort of like self-fulfilled prophesies? Or how exactly are our expectations related to our reality?

The Lord tells us, “You have not because you ask not, or you ask amiss.”

How many times have you heard someone say, “I think God has better things to do than concern himself with my problems”? Yet time after time, in the scripture, the Lord tells us to “Ask and you shall receive that your joy may be full.”

So what miracle do you need? I’ve found that I need to take my hand out of the middle of the pie, before the Lord steps in.

I’m reminded of a situation when my son was a toddler. I would tie his shoes for him, but he would keep sticking his little hands in the laces and squiggling his fingers like he was tying them. I had to wait for him to remove his fingers, before I could tie the laces.

I’m sure to him it simply looked like I was squiggling my fingers over the laces, and he couldn’t understand why it didn’t work when he tried it. But there’s more to tying laces than squiggling your fingers over them.

What looked easy to him, wasn’t easy for him… But it was simple for me.

Why don’t we take our fingers out of the middle of whatever situation needs attention and ask our heavenly Father to help?

What’s impossible with men, is possible with God. It’s even easy for Him, and He wants to do it. Let’s let Him.
