I am overcoming obastacles in life and it is comforting to know I’m not overcoming them alone. Andrew Murray wrote, “We have a God who delights in impossibilities.” I don’t usually use words like delight when I consider something to be impossible. But I serve a God who does, and that allows me to rest. To rest in the knowledge that He can overcome all.
God deals with impossibilities. It is never too late for Him to do so, when the impossible is brought to Him, in full faith, by the one in whose life and circumstances the impossible must be accomplished if God is to be glorified. If in our own life there have been rebellion, unbelief, sin, and disaster, it is never too late for God to deal triumphantly with these tragic facts if brought to Him in full surrender and trust. It has often been said, and with truth, that Christianity is the only religion that can deal with man’s past. God can “restore the years that the locust hath eaten” (Joel 2:25); and He will do this when we put the whole situation and ourselves unreservedly and believingly into His hands. Not because of what we are but because of what He is. God forgives and heals and restores. He is “the God of all grace.” Let us praise Him and trust Him.
Amen! And, just for good measure … two snaps of my sweet girl. She is growing, learning and continues to be the light of my life.
