Luke 1:36-37 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.

Not because man says that something is impossible means that it is so. Prior to Jesus feeding the 5,000 men plus women and children, anyone that you would have asked if this would have been possible would have said no; nevertheless it happened. The people of Jericho , if they were asked if the thick wall of Jericho could come falling down, would have told you that there is zero chance that this would happen. The impossible was made possible with God. 

In the same way, Elizabeth and Zechariah would have been told by men that it was impossible for them to have a child because they were well past child bearing age, but God did it anyway because it was His will and to prove Luke 1:37 that, “With God nothing is impossible”. The implication of that for you is that it does not matter how impossible your situation might seem, if it is something that God has promised and purposed, he will make the impossible possible. 

Since we know that God will do His will regardless of how impossible it may seem, our responsibility is to believe. Believe even when others say it is impossible. Also, believe even when you don’t know how God will do what He has promised concerning your life. Worrying about how it will work out will not bring the result, God will want to see your faith.  Quite likely Joshua and the people of Israel did not know how the thick walls of Jericho would have fallen down, but that was not their concern. Their responsibility was to believe and show that they believe by doing what God instructed them to do and then God did the rest. The approach taken by Joshua and the Israelites is what is required of us to turn our impossible situation into our reality.

Life Application; Turn your impossible situation into your reality by believing God to do what He has promised and carry out his instructions

Prayer: Lord, thank you for being a God of the impossible. I have proven over and over that you will and can do what seems impossible. Help me to always remember my past victories. In Jesus’ name, amen.
