“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
The Bible tells us that with God all things are possible.
But what about when the impossible doesn’t happen? What does it mean when the cancer remains uncured, the relationship remains broken or the addiction takes over again?
I can tell you what it does not mean. It does not mean that God’s possible has run out. Our desired outcome may not be what we get, but the possibilities are just as insurmountable from that point as they were before.
Just because the tests came back positive doesn’t put constraints on God’s miraculous power over the next few weeks, months, years.
Just because it still hurts doesn’t mean God is any less capable of bringing more joy through sorrow than we can ever imagine.
Just because the victory doesn’t seem to be reached doesn’t change the fact that the battle is already won.
Sometimes the impossible miracle God is performing is so big that it’s impossible for us to see.
That’s where His promises come in. Circumstances do not define God. God is the master chef of all things good and He can use even the most disgusting and poisonous ingredients to create more greatness than we can fathom.
“For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:37
