Food for ThoughtLuke 1:37 Impossible
Food for Thought
An Guide to Kingdom Living. True Christian living requires us to live according to Kingdom standards which bring Heaven to earth

Luke 1:37 New King James Version

37. For with God nothing will be impossible.”

“God cannot fail”;  Sometimes in the process of change, healing and growing, it may seem that our dreams will never be fulfilled and what God promised will never come to pass, but the appointed time will give us proof of His great wisdom.  

As humans trying to find our strength and purpose, we tend to put God on the same level we are on.   

God doesn’t have a plan B.; He doesn’t need to have a plan B.   He knew in advance all the issues that would come against us. He knew the people who would disappoint us and the situations that seemed to go haywire.  He knew how long we would have to struggle through each part of our journey and He knows what it will take to get us where He needs us to be emotionally, physically and spiritually.  He did this with the Israelites when they were in the desert. What should have been a 10 day trip to the promise land, took them 40 years of faith lessons.

God is faithful.  Life will throw us those curve balls, but God remains steadfast and ready to catch us when we fall. He will keep us headed in the right direction as we move through the thorns that prick us along the way.

He can do this because He knows the end from the beginning and made His plans for us. He knew all the issues we would face and the problems that would come against us, but He also knew how He would get us out of messes and what miracles were needed in the situations.   For Him nothing is impossible because, not only does He know the outcome, but He can create it or even change it.    

God is powerful, without exception; He knows everything about everything at anytime.  He understands more than we do and is unafraid and unhindered.

God knows the lies we believe and He knows the kinds of situations that will help us see and let go of the lies we have believed. He is unaffected by human decisions and does not allow us to manipulate Him.  We cannot make Him do anything faster or slower, or do something that would benefit our flesh.

God can and will do anything and everything that is really in our best interest.  Too often we bring Him down to our level and treat Him like He is limited.  This is what the Israelites did in the desert when they formed a golden calf which was supposed to represent God.   

We will usually bend toward the familiar and what feels secure instead of believing that God can do the impossible regardless of our circumstances or our fears.

We could experience so much freedom if we really saw God as He is; an all powerful, all knowing and loving God who wants an incredible life for us.

Challenge:  Stop trying to form God in your own, limited image.   Read His word and ask Him to reveal Himself to you; the way He truly is.  

God bless

lamb-rightThe purpose of this series is to encourage people to live as loving, compassionate, and peacemaking children of God: Jesus tells us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) God tells us through Micah (6:8), "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God." And we know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain, or death. Thus, Christian living requires us to set the standards of these conditions here on earth for our fellow human beings, and for the other animals, as a witness to the rest of the world. To do otherwise is not Christian.
