“For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37 (ESV)
Have you been believing for a miracle? Has your miracle seemed out of reach, perhaps even impossible? If so, I know
exactly how you feel, and so did Jesus’ disciples. But if that’s where you are, contrary to how your circumstances look, to what everyone around you may think, and even to your own emotions, don’t lose hope. We serve the God of the impossible (Luke 1:37)!
Upon Jesus’ sentencing and death, things did not look good for His followers. They had given up everything and put all of their faith in Him, and now it looked like the end. They were probably feeling a huge range of devastating emotions from feeling lost in despair to perhaps even questioning everything that they had believed. But at this rock-bottom low point, what looked and felt like a crushing defeat to all who witnessed it, was instead actively being turned around to become the most inspiring comeback, the greatest and most complete victory, that has ever been in the history of the world. Jesus defeated sin and death and came back to life forever as King. He ascended to heaven and now sits at the right hand of God Almighty (Luke 22:69) where He has been given the name above all names (Philippians 2:9) so that every knee will bow, and every tongue confess in heaven and on earth that Jesus Christ is Lord (Philippians 2:10-11)! What a glorious turnaround!
So, my friend, I urge you not to lose hope. If you’re in an impossible situation, don’t look around; look up! Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides, is your Father. The miracles that were done throughout the Bible were not just for the past. God does not change; Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is still very much in the business of miracles, and he wants you to come to Him with your burdens and disappointments that you were never meant to carry alone. He wants to help you. You are His child, dearly loved, precious, and honored in His sight (Isaiah 43:4a). And remember that your Daddy is the God of the impossible; nothing is impossible with Him (Luke 1:37)! Although He might not do it in the way or the timing that you would like, God can and will take the most dire situation and turn it around for good. Dear sister, believe for your miracle today!
Love in Him,
