Luke 1:36-37 And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age had also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who has called barren, “For nothing will be impossible with God.”
“With God all things are possible” this is absolutely the truth. Not deniable, but what are the “things?’ Are they the “things” that “we” want? Or are they more importantly the “things” that God wants for us? We read verses like this and automatically think that if we pray something to God, He will open up His hand and deliver it because nothing is impossible. We will be able to accomplish all that we have set forth to do. We will be able to “Fill in the blank” here, because it could be all manner of things. What is not impossible is God to fulfill His plan and will for our lives. We can rest in the knowledge that if God has willed it He will accomplish it and it will be for our best. God has plans for us to prosper and to do well; not to harm us. So, we can rest in know that truly no-“thing” is “impossible” with God, however, it might not be “thing” we had planned on.
