With God, All Things are Possible

with God all things are possible

Why are you worried? Why are you anxious?

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (Gen. 18:14)

That thing you’re dealing with: I’m not saying it isn’t serious.

“One thing God has spoken, two things have I heard: that you, O God, are strong.” (Ps. 65:6)

I’m not saying it isn’t difficult.

“I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?” (Jer. 32:27)

But it isn’t too serious or difficult for God to handle.

“With God all things are possible.” (Matt. 19:26)

He made everything.

“For He spoke, and it came to be; He commanded, and it stood firm.” (Psalm 33:9)

He literally keeps creation from falling apart.

“In him all things hold together.” (Col. 1:17)

He holds power over death.

“By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.” (1 Cor. 6:14)

He guards our salvation.

“Who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.” (1 Pet. 1:5)

He knows – and cares about – the smallest detail of everything that happens to you.

“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matt. 10:29-31)

Do you believe it? Do you believe that God can do anything?

“Being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” (Rom 4:21).

Well, not anything. He cannot be other than who he is. He cannot lie. (Titus 1:2). He cannot be tempted by evil. (James 1:13). He cannot deny himself. (2 Tim. 2:13). He cannot break a promise. (Ps. 119:89).

But anything good – anything consistent with his perfect love and holiness – is in his power.

That’s worth a little praise, don’t you think?

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine …” (Eph. 3:20-21).

“Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory!” (Rev. 19:6)

So why are you worried? Why are you anxious?
