When life seems impossible, it is often hard to cope. Some things seem impossible to us. But to God the impossible can always be broken down into possibilities. “Impossible”…”I’m Possible”………..Indeed, with God on our side……impossible is nothing!
What seems impossible for us is never impossible for God. It is important to follow God’s directions and to listen to His wisdom–applying these things to our lives. Sometimes it is as simple as seeking Godly advice that provides a workable solution that maybe hasn’t been considered. Sometimes it is as simple as seeking out a trusted ear from a friend or loved one.
Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Other times it is harder….but never impossible. So, before you give up, thinking that it is an impossible situation, talk with God, tell Him your pain and your situation. He knows, BUT, I believe that He wants to hear it from you. This is what “relationship” is all about…sharing our pains and gains.
Talk with a trusted and godly friend, not only should you receive encouragement and empathy, but you should also receive loving advice seen from outside the fog of your situation.
There have been times when I knew someone near to me was in pain. I wanted so bad to help them and to encourage them to have strength. The truth is….it is only when we communicate that I can encourage them and help them gain strength through their pain. This is what “relationship” is all about. It works that way with us….it works that way with God.
When you have a friend that is facing seemingly impossible circumstances….be there….listen…encourage…..empathize, and offer loving and Godly advice from outside the fog of pain. Tell them that you will join them on their mission. Go to Jesus and say, “Impossible is nothing!”
Philippians 4:11b-13 (NIV)
11b …..I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
May you face the pains of life with the certainty that nothing is impossible to overcome with Jesus at your side. May you your strength in His. After all…..Jesus did what we would deem as impossible…he overcame death in a sacrifice that gave us life!
