“But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible” (Mark 10:27)
I once worked in a rural community in Nigeria, shortly after I graduated from the Medical School. And while I was there, I met a young man who was generally described as a drug addict, a serial womanizer, a busybody and a drifter, among other evil labels. But I did not see him the way they saw him. I saw him as a nice man, always smiling, and had kind words for me each time we met.
One day, he was evicted from the small room he shared with his uncle, his uncle’s large family, and other people, on trumped-up charges, and he found himself homeless, helpless and penniless all of a sudden.
In his desperation, he came to my office one hot afternoon, sweating profusely and looking unkempt, and narrated his ordeals to me. Eventually, he asked if he could live in my boys’ quarters, which was vacant at that time, and I said yes immediately, despite strong protestations from some people within the community. They wanted me to evict him at all costs, but I refused.
Before long, he became born-again and went everywhere to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, heal the people, and deliver them from the clutches of the devil. That is, he became a great blessing to many people in the community. He was a great blessing to me and my family as well.
One morning, he came to my apartment and asked if he could do a farm for me, as a way of thanking me for allowing him to live in my boys’ quarters free of charge. But I declined since I didn’t want a farm. Besides, the land in our part of the community was known to be barren and unfit for any meaningful farming activity.
Notwithstanding, he continued to pester me until I caved in. He later assured me that with God, the land, which was known to be barren and unfit for any meaningful farming activity, would do very well for us. And to my surprise, it did, such that at the end of the planting season that year, we harvested a large quantity of farm produce, most of which we had to give out to several people far and near.
To me, it was impossible to carry out any meaningful farming activity where my residence was. But to the man, the ‘impossible is also possible with God’, and he was dead right.
Friends, are you currently facing any situation, which looks impossible to overcome? If you are, then be informed that the ‘impossible is possible with God’. For instance, it is possible for Him to heal you, even though medical experts have concluded otherwise. Remember, He is interested in restoring you to health and healing your wounds (Jeremiah 30:17).
It is also possible for Him to make you prosper, even if the resources at your disposal and other realities on the ground do not agree with this position. Please, do not forget that He wants you to abound in all the work of your hand (Deuteronomy 30:9), and make you prosper in whatever you do (Psalms 1:3). In addition, it is possible for Him to save your children, even though they are far lost (Isaiah 49:25), and they shall call you blessed, sooner or later (Proverbs 31:28).
Furthermore, it is possible for God to give you a good name, a good personality, a good ministry, a good business, a good career, a good family, a good house, a good car, etc. (Psalm 84:11), although it looks like you cannot have them because of one reason or the other.
Please, don’t believe the lies of the devil suggesting that it is impossible for you to have good things of life, or reach great heights like other people, for with God all things are possible (Mark 10:27). Meaning, the ‘impossible is also possible’ with God! Hallelujah!!
Jesus is Lord!
