All things are possible with God. - Bro. T. Stephen
Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Luke 18:27 Jesus Said, “ What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
From the above context we learn that our God is known as Elshaddai, God Almighty. Lord Jehovah Jireh God who provides. He is a mighty God, He is an awesome God, with such a God, all things are possible. What is impossible with man is possible with God. Jesus once said to the rich young ruler, ‘’Sell all that you have and follow Me.” The young man went away sorrowful. Christ then turned to his disciples and said, “It is very hard for those who are rich to enter into the kingdom of God. ‘’The disciples were greatly astonished and answered, “If it is so difficult to enter the kingdom, who then can be saved? And Christ gave this blessed answer. “The things which are impossible with man is possible with God. “’ Then Jesus explains that what is impossible with man is possible with God.’’ He can enable wealthy men to walk humbly before God as Abraham did. Just as He can enable a poor man like Lazarus to do so. He is able to save to the utmost, all those who come to Him through Jesus.
He is the God of the impossible. It is a reminder that, if it was not for God’s all prevailing goodness not one of us would be saved. But nevertheless it is necessary for us to thrust aside anything that hinders us from following God fully. God knew that in the case of this young man the problem was that he was too bound, to his possessions. God knew that unless they were removed they would ever be a burden around his neck. His heart would never be set on God. Thus he had to choose between God and mammon and he had to choose decisively.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, have you made a right choice in your life? Are you busy with the affairs of this world and all its wealth. Is your heart set on the things of this world ? The Bible says, For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil. And some while, longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves through many sorrows. Apostle Paul charges those that are rich in this world, that they may not be high minded. Nor trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. For Godliness with contentment is great gain. May the Lord give you the grace to discern for yourself that which is right and pleasing in the sight of God. We pray that the Lord help you to set your affection on things above and not on things on the earth. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord teach us not to be bound by the things of this world. Help us to make a proper decision, with regard to godliness and seek those things that are above. Let our life be hid with Christ in God. May we put off the old man with his deeds and be renewed in Christ. Help us to realise that what is impossible with man is possible with God.
