With God All Things Are Possible

By Brad Tuttle

    We pray because with man alone, it is impossible.  Recently, I woke up with a heavy burden to pray for the children around the world (born and unborn).  The more I interceded against abortion, sex-trafficking, transgenderism, and lies that are being taught to the children in schools, the heavier the burden became.  It was almost overwhelming, but then I heard that sweet and much needed voice of the Lord tell me:  “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Matt. 19:26; see Mark 10:27; Luke 18:27).

    “But with God” – I instantly laughed with joy in my heart how quickly His one sentence turned everything around in my heart, mind, and spirit.  I quickly went from a depressing “oh my, this is terrible, this is impossible,” to “but with God, nothing, absolutely nothing, is impossible!”

    We find an encouraging story in Second Kings 3:4-18 where the kings of Israel and Judah planned on fighting against Moab.  But, on the way there, they traveled seven days without water; not a good place to be in when you are going to battle.  They then sought out Elisha the prophet and were given a word from the Lord.  “…You shall not see wind, nor shall you see rain; yet that valley shall be filled with water…” (v. 17).  And then they were told, “And this is a simple matter in the sight of the Lord; He will also deliver the Moabites into your hand” (v. 18).  Oh, may we always remember “this is a simple matter in the sight of the Lord.”

    We read in Genesis 18:12 when Sarah was told by the Lord she would have a son way past childbearing, she laughed.  She was then admonished with “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (v. 14).  Job 42:2 reassures us that no plan of the Lord can be thwarted.  Oh, let faith arise as Jeremiah 32:27 says, “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh.  Is there anything too hard [difficult] for Me?”  As we go through each day, can we ever declare this Scripture enough?

    A very promising and heartwarming story is found in Luke 1:26-38 where the angel of the Lord informed the virgin Mary she would have a Son, to which Mary inquired as to how this was pos­sible, since she was a virgin.  And the angel declared, “For with God nothing will be impossible” (v. 37).  When we are in a seemingly “impossible” situation, may our response always be as Mary’s – “Let it be to me according to Your word” (v. 38).

    Thank You, Jesus, You always give us a word in due season.  Our hope is not in man, or the world’s system, no, it is in You and You alone.  Whenever we find ourselves hopeless, discouraged, feeling defeated, let us lift up our head and shout:  But with God – all things are possible!  May we be so filled with Your Word, that Scriptures of hope and faith instantly come to our heart and mind to counter­attack the lies of our enemy.  Whatever we are facing, let us remind ourselves, “but with God, all things are possible.”
