Our God is the God of the impossible.
Liz Curtis Higgs shares some of the seemingly impossible aspects of the first Christmas. In the beginning of the story, the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary and said that she would give birth to a son, even though she had never been with a man.
Mary knows that this is impossible without divine intervention and so without doubting she asks the angel how this could happen to her. To comfort her, the Angel Gabriel breaks the news that another seemingly impossible thing has occurred.
“Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age. So that’s what’s offered her this hope. She who was unable to conceive is in her six month. Don’t you love that. She was unable and God was able.”
Nothing is outside of God’s realm of possibility.
“For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37
What do you think is impossible for God to accomplish in your life?
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” Matthew 19:26
“It’s never about what we can or cannot do. It’s all about God and He can do anything.”
Mary knew she was the servant of God. She believed that God could do this impossible thing in and through her and in faith, she believed God.
What impossible thing will you believe God can do in your life?
