Choose To Believe That the Impossible is Possible

“To believe a thing impossible is to make it so.” – French Proverb

Daily Devotional

Luke 1:37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Do not listen to the naysayers because what men call impossible is possible with God. It was believed that it was impossible for a virgin to give birth to a child, but with God Mary proved the naysayers wrong. After Hannah tried for years to have a child and had no success, Peninnah, her adversary, gave her no chance of having a child, but she not only bore Samuel, but later had 3 sons and 2 daughters according to I Samuel 2:21. The overflowing Jordan seemed impossible to cross, but with God as soon as the feet of the ark bearing priest touched the edge of the water, it instantly stopped flowing.

Your future is determined by whose voice you choose to believe.. The impossible only became possible for the bible characters highlighted because they chose to believe the word of God. When the Angel spoke to Mary she believed and said in Luke 2:38 “be it unto me according to thy word”. After Hannah prayed she believed that her circumstances changed evidenced by the scripture saying in 1 Samuel 1:18 that she went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad. She expected a miracle so her sadness disappeared. Joshua showed he believed God at the Jordan river by instructing the priests to do exactly as the word of God had said.

Based on observation of scripture there are two things that cause impossible circumstances to become faith in God and His favour. Faith in God produces obedience that then attracts his favour. God has designed it for us to receive by faith. So regardless, of how your circumstances may look today, choose to believe that impossible is possible with God by doing what his word says and then watch him work.

Life Application: Make your faith work for you by doing what His word says.

Prayer: Dear Lord, change my perspective on that which seems impossible. Help me to see every situation through your eyes and recognize that you are a God of the impossible. In Jesus name, amen.
