Count on God to Do the Impossible
By Rick Warren
“For there is nothing that God cannot do.” Luke 1:37 (GNT)
Never let an impossible situation intimidate you. Why? Because nothing is impossible with God.
Instead of being intimidated by a seemingly impossible situation, let it motivate you—to pray more, believe more, trust more, wait more, expect more, and depend on God more.
It doesn’t matter how impossible a situation may seem; you can be certain that “he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion” (Philippians 1:6 NIV). What God starts in your life, he will finish.
If you were to take the dictionary out of my office and look up the word “impossible,” you would find it isn’t in there—because I cut it out. I decided that if it’s not in God’s dictionary, it’s not going to be in mine.
Hudson Taylor, a missionary from the 1800s, said this about God doing the impossible in our lives: “There are three stages to every great work of God; first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.”
But Satan doesn’t want you to believe that nothing is impossible with God. He’ll tell you over and over, “Who do you think you are? You can’t do that. What makes you think you can be a man or woman of God?” When you believe and trust God for the impossible in your life, it’s an embarrassment for the Devil.
Maybe you’re in what looks like an impossible situation right now. Look to God and rely on his promises, and watch your situation move from impossible to possible—and then to done.
