Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
Application to life:
A take off of what Alice in Wonderland said about doing the impossible before breakfast. When we work on our own, we are limited in what we can do. When we ask for help some of those limitations are lifted, so what would happen when we give our problems and ask for help from the one who created all things? The impossible happens.
Our God wants to give us the desires of our hearts. Again, if we don’t ask then we will not receive. It is not that God does not know what we want because he knows all things. It is about the trust that we are giving when we say what we want and hand it over to God. There is such a difference in actions and words! The thought of what you want does not go anywhere but when you ask God you are taking action by giving him your requests!
A Worshipper’s Word:
I have been on both sides of impossible. The side where I decided that I would be in control and all chaos would let loose then the other side where I am joyful and give it to God. There is nothing that I can do on my own to make seizures go away but by speaking my request to God and trusting that, with his perfect timing, healing would be delivered I am showing my faith to God. When we try to take control in our own hands we are carrying a burden that is unnecessary for us to carry.
While working with toddlers they always wanted to do everything themselves. It was cute because they would want to help carry the chairs (which were twice their size) but would never want help! It is not that they couldn’t figure out how to carry the chair but it was unnecessary for them to do so. God wants to help us and if he says that he can do the impossible then it is up to us to trust him to do so.
