Nothing is Impossible
By Maria Fontaine
Our own weakness can be our saving grace, because Jesus’ strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). That concept is so contrary to our natural way of thinking. It’s human nature to want to be strong in ourselves, and through that strength, to push forward and make progress. But Jesus tells us that when we feel weak and helpless, that’s when miracles start to happen!
Jesus wants to bring each of us to the place of full faith—that place where we continue to hold on to His promises and refuse to quit, even though we don’t have an ounce of our own strength left. When we get to this state where we truly know and accept that without Jesus we can do nothing, then He is able to take over. This is when the impossible becomes possible.
So if you’ve been feeling like you can’t go on one more step, then that’s just perfect because you’re right where you need to be! But Jesus doesn’t want you to stay in that state. He wants to move you beyond that point, and He will. When you’ve come to the end of your own resources, that’s when Jesus can step in and do the impossible for you. “If you can believe, all things are possible” (Mark 9:23). Hold Him to that promise. Put Him to the test!
Stay focused on Jesus and His promises. Ignore circumstances or other voices that oppose what He tells you to do. When Jesus called Peter to step out of the boat and walk on the water with Him, Peter did fine until he took his eyes off of Jesus, looked down at the waves, and became fearful—then he lost faith and started to sink (Matthew 14:22-32).
Put your faith to use every day. The more you exercise your faith, the more miracles you will see and the more your faith will grow.
If you've been feeling like you can't go on one more step, then that's just perfect because you're right where you need to be!
