We live in a world where what we can see with our eyes, what we can read or what we can conceive with our minds are the boundaries of what we deem possible. Even in President John F. Kennedy’s 1962 declaration that “we choose to go to the moon in this decade … not because it is easy, but because it is hard”, we can see that even the hardest tasked was considered possible. But with God even the impossible is deemed possible.
The angel spoke to Mary regarding how she would be having a baby although she was a virgin, “For nothing is impossible with God”. (Luke 1:37). As Christians, we are called to lead lives of impossibility. Jesus told His disciples that they could do even greater things than they saw Him do.
So how are we then going to live? Will we keep our feet on the ground and stick with those things that are worldly possible, or will we live with an eye towards God’s kingdom and act as if all things are possible? What is God calling you to do today that can only be accomplished by prayer, trusting in Him and stepping out by faith? Let that be your goal and passion. Talk to your children night and day about the impossible things that God has done in your lives and what He wants to do in theirs.
