God of Impossibilities

Do you face an impossible task? Are you staring up at a mountain of troubles? Do you feel as though you have gotten in over your head? Are you looking for a helping hand, or perhaps a miracle worker? Are you willing to put it in God’s hands?

Sooner or later, we all face some tough times. They may be financial. It may be a relationship. Perhaps a job loss or change or retirement. We will face some difficulty in our lives that will bring us to our knees. We simply don’t know when or what.

When we face difficulties, we typically look for help. We ask for advice from someone we trust. We reach out to family and friends. It is in those particularly difficult times we find out who truly cares for us; those who are willing to give us the shirt off their back, give us their last dollar. People with that attitude are rare. There is a quality about them that shines through.

There is also one other we can trust at all times—God. He is always there, patiently waiting for us to come to Him. As we see in today’s passage, there is nothing God can’t handle. We must remember that He is all powerful, He created everything.

Unfortunately, we often turn to God as a last resort. We allow things to fester to the point of bursting before we look up to ask God to intervene. He is certainly capable of snatching us out of the cauldron, but more times than not, He will allow us to feel some of the heat to teach us a lesson.

God wants a relationship with us. He longs for us to talk with Him every day. When we do, we find God speaking to us, guiding us every step of the way. We find a strength not of our own, but from God. He holds our hand, and even carries us when we can’t continue on our own.

Yet, if you have never turned to God, don’t hesitate, especially if you are in the midst of a storm. God can do the impossible. We simply need to fall to our knees, turn our hearts over to Him, and trust Him with our problem.

I pray we all turn to God each day. I pray we spend time in prayer with Him, both requesting and listening. I pray each one of us reach out to God with our troubles and trust Him. Trust God. All things are possible with God. Turn your troubles over to Him. Turn your heart over to God.

Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
