Anything Is Possible with God
By Keneesha Saunders-Liddie
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.’” - Mark 10:27
I clicked submit with shaky fingers. There is no way I will get this job, I thought. Yet, as I thought those words, my mouth whispered, it’s not my will but thine be done.
I had just applied through an online site for a job I wasn’t very qualified for. In my search for work, I had applied to many random jobs, but this time it was a little different - I really was interested in this particular role. I stepped out by faith, fixed my resume to reflect the position I wanted, rewrote my cover letter and sent it in.
A couple months later I had completely forgotten about the position. So, when I received a random call that turned out to be a phone interview, I was a little confused. After background checks, another phone call, and face to face interviews, I was extended a job offer. I took it.
Do you see how amazing our God is? I never thought I would get the job and as soon as I hit submit and left it in God’s powerful hands, he made a way out of no way.
Our verse today reflects the amazingness of God. I couldn’t have gotten the job based on my credentials because they were certainly lacking. But God, in his infinite mercy and love, made an impossible situation possible.
When Jesus uttered these powerful words, he had just finished having a conversation with a rich man. This man wanted to know what it would cost him to follow Jesus and he didn’t like the answer that he received. When Jesus said that all things are possible with God, he was speaking about salvation for all.
Only God can save. What we know to be utter doom and dark clouds can turn to rays of sunshine because there is nothing impossible with God.
There are so many examples in God’s Word where he performed the impossible, like raising Lazarus from the dead, parting the Red Sea, having the walls of Jericho tumble down because of praise and worship, the virgin birth… I could go on and on.
But it doesn’t end there; God also performs impossible feats today. When the doctor checks the scans 20 times before coming back to you to tell you that there is no cancer, when he sends just the right amount of money you need via anonymous donation, when he delays you in traffic so you can avoid an accident -- that was God protecting, providing, and healing. Just like he has done in the past, is doing now and will continue to do in the future.
I’m so grateful for the opportunity God provided when he allowed me to get that job. He has shown me that he has the final say, not man and their credentials. He makes the impossible, possible. He is our miracle worker.
Where is God doing the impossible in your life?
