The impossible things

In life we are often faced with the impossible. This happens as we get to the point where we cannot do anything, humanly speaking, to resolve something. Perhaps you are facing impossibility today?  You just don’t know which way to turn.
I want to encourage you and remind you that what may seem impossible to you is possible with God. God is the God of the impossible.  We must never limit God.  We must always expect Him to make a way.
We all face those impossible things that we have to deal with. Things that, at face value, seem to be impossible to resolve.  Things that we can do nothing about.  Things that are completely beyond our control.  I call these things the impossible things. Sometimes we get to this point of impossibility as we run up against a wall repeatedly. There is a story about someone who had gone through such an experience.

Luke 1:18 Zacharias said to the angel, “But this is impossible! I’m an old man now, and my wife is also well along in years.”

This man had waited so long that he had entirely given up, but God had done the impossible.

    For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.

    Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness. I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.
