“Jesus replied, ‘What is impossible with man is possible with God.'” (Luke 18: 27, NIV)
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.
Each day presents its own challenges, and we do well to weigh whether we have the time, the strength, the wisdom, the funds, or the alliances and allegiances to prevail. Doing so brings us to the point where we know, without a doubt, that if we are to succeed in the task before us, it must be “with God.”
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
