Make no mistake about it, there are impossibilities in this life. To act or to say otherwise is to risk doing ourselves, and those who get their cues from us, a great deal of harm.
Jesus reminds us today (as He did the disciples 2,000 years ago) that where we will utterly fail by ourselves; with God, we can achieve, succeed, and prevail.
The child of God is never — never — in the realm of impossibility when mindful of his/her heavenly Father. – Luther
