“But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26 KJV
What a wonderful, powerful Scripture this is. "With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible."
Jesus on more than one occasion encouraged His disciples and followers that whatever or whenever they were confronted with an absolutely impossible situationGod could fix it. God could handle it!
Jesus established in His own life, that what His Father had to say about something, was the truth and the final word.
All of us have faced and will face situations that are totally beyond OUR resources, OUR capabilities, etc.
You know one of those NO WAY, NO HOW, AIN’T GOING TO HAPPEN SITUATIONS.
When you are looking at, what appears, to be an impossibility, the devil will be the first one to say there is no hope, you can’t, there’s no solution, there’s no hope.
That’s his specialty he’s really good at it!
Satan is out to take away any hope you might have.
But our good God is the God of all hope!
“May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13 GNT
HE IS THE-SOURCE OF ALL HOPE. Meditate on that for a while!
The devil is the father of ALL LIES! (John 8:44)
<< Test First Name >>, we have a decision to make. Do we believe what God has said in His Word, or do we believe what the devil has to say.
If the devil tried to pull that trick on Jesus (Luke 4:1-13), he will do the same with you and I.
Satan is your adversary (1 Peter 5:8) and he is out to steal from you, kill you, destroy you and everything you have.
He hates God and he hates you and he will use every trick, in his bag of tricks, to try to get you to yield to him.
How do we yield to him? By entertaining what he has to say. By considering those thoughts that come to our mind, contrary to what God has said in His Word. And by acting on and agreeing with what He has to say.
I like the way the Message Bible renders 1 Peter 5:8:
“Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up.”
1 Peter 5:8 MSG
Because we have an adversary, who is relentless, we must:
• Stay cool under pressure
• Stay alert at all times
• No napping
• Keep your guard up
So the next time the devil comes and says, there’s no hope, you can’t or there’s no solution, I want you to declare boldly, with confidence what Jesus Himself said “with God all things are possible.”
