Can God Really Do Anything?
The other day I was asked the question, “Can God Do Anything?” There is song that says, “God can do anything but fail”. As I thought about this question I began to think about impossible things. As I thought about them I noticed that in man's eyes they were impossible, but if God so chose He could do them.
Many of the things that happen in our life are impossibilities without God. Just think for a moment about the air we breathe. If it wasn’t for the impossible that God does we wouldn’t be able to breathe. The very miracle God created that replenishes our oxygen is impossible with man.
When God called me into the ministry I told Him that it was impossible. Why was it impossible? I was afraid to stand in front of people and speak. My mind froze when I got up in front of people and I couldn’t remember what I was going to say. There was no way God could use me to preach because that was impossible. Well, it is impossible as far as I was concerned but with God it was possible. Every time I stand up to preach I know that if I don’t get God’s help then it will be impossible to accomplish.
When you think you can accomplish things without God’s help you will find out real fast that you need God to accomplish the task. Philippians 4:13, tells us that we can do all thing with God’s strength. So what we learn is that we need God to help us accomplish the impossible.
When I finally surrendered to God and said to Him I know I can’t stand before the Church and preach without you, I found that He helped me to accomplish the impossible. So when you can’t figure out why you can’t accomplish the impossible remember you need God’s power in your life and without it you will not be able to accomplish it.
Next time you see something that you know is impossible remember that with God all things are possible. Ask God to help you do the impossible!!!
