God Makes Impossible Possible


Jesus told the disciples, “for God all things are possible” (Mt 19:26). There were several instances for this in the Bible.

When the LORD appeared to Abraham by the oak of Mamre as three men, one of them told Abraham, “I

will return to you about this time next year, and Sarah will then have a son” (Gen 18:10). Sarah laughed because “Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in years, and Sarah had stopped having her menstrual periods” (Gen 18:11). The LORD responded, “Is anything too marvellous for the LORD to do?” (Gen 18:14).

The Israelites believed that when the LORD was with them, they could defeat a mighty enemy with fewer soldiers (1 Sam 14:6). Through Jeremiah, God asked, “I am the LORD, the God of all the living! Is anything too difficult for me?” (Jer 32:27)

Jesus did humanly impossible acts during his public ministry, like changing water into wine, miraculous healings, casting out demons, calming the sea, and raising the dead. That made people accept Jesus as the Messiah, the disciples being eyewitnesses to this.

God converted the rich to care for the poor such as we see in the cases of tax collectors like Zacchaeus and Matthew. Saul, who persecuted the Church, became the Apostle Paul. Missionaries throughout the centuries left worldly comfort in their lives to work for the kingdom of God, expecting hardships, martyrdom, and reward in heaven.
