“But Jesus beheld [them], and said unto them, with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” Mathew 19:26
The eyes of flesh see impossibilities while the eyes of faith see possibilities. A situation, circumstance, character, habit that men might conclude impossible receives the verdict of possibility in Jesus name.
In Luke 18, the weak and vulnerable widow in her apparent powerlessness had victory and became an overcomer. The infants in their powerlessness were lifted up by Jesus as the epitome of the Kingdom's true character. The Publican realising his powerlessness stood afar off with his eyes on the ground, went home justified unlike the Pharisee with his self-righteousness and reliance on his powerful works who suffered rejection.
If we want God to do the impossible, including the changing of our lives, we must be willing to take off the hardened exterior and reveal our true, weak and impotent selves. The Lord Himself, like he did with the little babies, will quickly come to our defence and powerfully touch us.
May we all experience the possibility of the impossible in this month of divine discovery. Let us all “Go forward” as we continue to trust, obey and walk circumspectly with the God of un-ending discovery that made the things that are out of things that are not. A circle whose centre is everywhere, but whose circumference is nowhere, the everlasting father, the Alpha and Omega.
In his letter to the believers at Rome, Apostle Paul brought to the fore front psalms 32 when he quoted the opening verses: “Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin” (Romans 4:7, 8). As an instructive Psalm it informs of the blight of sin and the blessing of forgiveness.
Most Bible scholars believe it was composed after David's terrible sin of adultery with Bathsheba and murder of Uriah, her husband. Against this background of sin, failure, shame and humiliation, David writes of the joy, forgiveness, and peace that he found when he made the discovery of a lifetime. He not only discovered what he was, but more importantly, he discovered who God was and what he could become if he permitted God to exercise sovereign control over his life.
David was in a covenant relationship with God at the time of his great failure, much like Peter the fisherman was in a family relationship with God when failure came into his life. This may be true of you today as a Christian. You have been redeemed by Christ, but defeat has been a repeated experience in your life. If that be true, this can be a day, a place, and a time of discovery for you as it was for David of old.
Having lifted Him up in praises and enthroned Him in our hearts as our Lord and sovereign Saviour, I pray that each and every one of us will discover the riches of His glory.
Jesus is Lord!!!
