Obedience = From Impossible to Possible

bluebutterfly
We are often faced with situations which seem completely impossible, yet deep down inside we know we are supposed to approach them. Many times people simply throw their hands in the air and say, “it’s impossible, why bother”, and walk away . . . but . . . with God . . .

Peter and some of the other apostles were told to proclaim the full message of new life in Christ. They were obedient, yet the Sanhedrin had them thrown in jail. They did not know what was next, but they did know they were to be obedient to God, no matter what. I’m sure they were praying, seeking direction, committing themselves to continue to spread the gospel, but unsure as to how. God answered by sending an angel to open the doors and directing them to go to the temple courts and continue speaking, which they did. They knew they had to obey God rather than men. God made their impossible situation (imprisonment) into a possible situation (freedom). They took a stand, and God met their need. (reference Acts 5)

Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego knew that they needed to be obedient to their God and refused to bow down to a golden image that the King had made and had declared to all to bow down to when the music began. They remained faithful to God, and although they faced an impossible situation, a firey furnace, they served a God of possibilities. He brought them through without even a single hair singed or even a scent of smoke! (reference Daniel 3)

Daniel knew he served a mighty and faithful God and chose to be obedient to Him rather than the king of the land. Daniel was faithful to communicate with Him three times every day, and when the King had issued a decree for no one to pray to any other god but himself, Daniel continued his faithful prayers offered up to His Lord. Daniel faced an impossible situation, he was taken and thrown into a den of hungry lions, facing certain death for his disobedience to the issued decree. Yet, God did the impossible – He shut the mouths of the lions and Daniel was able to declare the goodness and faithfulness of Almighty God. Through this, even the king declared that Daniel served the True and Living God! (reference Daniel 6)

We could go on and on: the Shunammite Woman’s son restored to life; Peter walking on the water; Paul living after the viper bit him; etc. We serve an awesome God. He IS the God of possibilities! His Word even tells us that ‘Nothing is impossible with God.’ Luke 1:27

Dear ones, there is nothing greater in this life then living our lives as God intended us to live them. He directs us in His Word, and through our times of study, prayer and worship. As we are obedient to choosing His will for our lives, and line ourselves up accordingly, He turns our impossibilities into possibilities. There isn’t anything that is ahead of us that He cannot change! So, instead of fretting over that which you see on the horizon, seek God more; allow His peace to envelope you and rest in His faithfulness as you are obedient to Him. He has promised never to give us more than we can handle; so even if we ‘feel’ like we can’t handle anything more, He knows our limits, and He WILL see us through!

Prayer for the day:

Abba Father, Your Word is so rich and full of examples of Your faithfulness to those who sought You first, put You first, following after You even in light of impossible situations. Thank You! These examples help us to know of Your loving care for those who love You, seek Your will for their lives, and trust in You. Thank You! We bless Your Name! We praise You for Your love towards us, and for Your care of us, we KNOW we can face anything . . . thank You! Amen.

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
