Believing in the Impossible

This past week in BSF we discussed chapters 17 and 18 which is about Abraham and Sarah and the promise God has given them and repeated a few times now.

In these chapters we see that Sarah and Abraham have struggled to grasp God’s plan for their lives. They’ve tried to fulfill these promises of their own power – believing that Sarah would not be the one to actually give birth because of her age. They’ve struggled because of that unbelief and the resulting sin. God has redeemed them and those that have been effected, though.

In the end, Sarah had to believe that God had the power to do the impossible.

God says in Genesis 17:15-22 that Sarah specifically would be the one to give birth to a son and that they would name him Isaac. He repeats that promise even to make sure that they don’t go astray again.

How would that be possible?

Believing in God is also believing in the impossible.

How is this the same for every believer today?

Today, we can believe in that same power because God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He is unchanging and unmoving even though we go astray and we have changing minds, doubts and beliefs sometimes. We can depend on the Rock. He still conducts miracles and I think when we don’t look for them or don’t have faith that they’ll happen, we wouldn’t see them and we wouldn’t ask for them either.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.

Hebrews 13:8

What is God asking you to believe that seems impossible?

I’d like to encourage you to pray this week for some miracle to be shown to you. Believe in it and it will be given. God’s power is unimaginable compared to anything on this earth. What a relief for us, really.

God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.

1 Corinthians 12:6
