Do you ever have times when your life’s circumstances seem impossible and you wonder whether God does the impossible?
Times when … your relationship is broken, or you can’t find a job, or your child is rebellious, or you can’t break a long-held bad habit, or your pain or illness is worsening, and life is just plain hard?
Times when you wonder if the outcome you’re praying for is even possible?
How I know God does the impossible…
I’ll be honest with you. I wonder if some or my prayers are even possible, too!
I’ve had times when my heart was heavy and I felt like I’d prayed the same prayer request a thousand times. Even now, I have a few big prayers that I continue to pray even though nothing seems to change.
And in my sadness, I start to wonder if this prayer of my heart is even possible. Is it true that God does the impossible?
Jesus repeatedly told people that God is able to do the impossible…
“What is impossible for people is possible with God.”
And He also told people to…
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”
So, I’m praying today but I’m not only asking that God does the impossible … I’m believing that He CAN DO the IMPOSSIBLE!
And even though I’ve asked Him a thousand times before, I’m confident He will hear my prayer and respond in love!
Maybe you’d like to join me.
