Life can feel overwhelming on occasion, and when we look at the tools in our toolbox, they look like they have been through the grinder. The struggle is real.
Things begin to get better and boom! Another mountain. We can be doing all the right things, doing everything humanly possible, and yet we still encounter mountains. We may even feel like we are the only person in the world that is struggling against the stuff in our lives. We aren’t. Mountains happen, but with Jesus, we are never alone in the struggle.
Mark 10:27 NLT
“Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”
Humanly speaking, it is impossible, but not with God. This is the thing. The reality is that even the impossible is possible with God. Mountains will move, valleys can be traversed, and oceans can be conquered, because everything is possible with God. Notice that Jesus says, not because of God, but WITH God. With God the possibilities are endless. God’s hand is upon our lives, so reach out and grab His hand and hang in there. This too shall pass.
2 Corinthians 4:18 NLT
“So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
When we fix our eyes on Jesus, even the impossible is possible.
