Ask God for the Impossible
By Rick Warren
“Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own” (Jeremiah 33:3 The Message).
When you’re put in an impossible situation, your talent, logic, and education won’t solve your problem.
Only God can.
That’s why you pray and ask God for his supernatural help. God told Jeremiah, who lived at the same time as Daniel, “Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own” (Jeremiah 33:3 The Message).
Daniel asked God for spiritual wisdom when King Nebuchadnezzar asked him to interpret a dream.
Daniel needed the Lord to show him what he would never be able figure out on his own. He could guess for a thousand years and never figure out the king’s dream. But God could tell him in an instant.
So many times we miss out on God’s best simply because we never ask him for it.
I’ve seen God do this over and over again in my life. I’ve faced big odds that I couldn’t fathom solving on my own. So I prayed.
And God has answered. My life is a series of answered prayers.
I want God to do the same for you.
Will you ask him for his best for your life?
