With God all things are possible
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
I have always found comfort in this verse of scripture. It assures me that what may not seem logical or reasonable, could happen if God chooses.
A friend of mine was very disturbed by the thought of a “fox hole Christian”, the one who on their death bed becomes a believer. He thought that so unfair and not right that they would be saved, but to me, with God, all things are possible.
It seems to me to be a hopeful passage, not a guarantee of what I want, but the opportunity that things will be what God knows to be best.
I would assume that most of us pray for specific things that we want or that we believe would be good. I think that this passage is one of the reasons that we say these prayers because we believe God can make them happen. The passage however does not guarantee that what we want is what will occur.
Prayer: God, please help me to believe all things are possible with you, and also to understand that you will do what is best. Amen.
