Nothing Shall Be Impossible
“For with God nothing shall be impossible” ~Luke 1:37
This is a theme threading throughout the history of the world, relayed by angels, prophets and even God Himself. Let’s go way back to the time of Abraham, some 4000-ish years ago - God had promised Abraham that he would have a son. But he was old - so was his wife Sarah. It seemed hopeless, but in Genesis 18:14, the Lord said to him, “Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the appointed time I will return to you, about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son.” And so it happened, the lineage to Jesus Christ had begun with a miracle.
If we fast forward 2000 years, we come to another old couple, who also longed for children. Zechariah and Elizabeth. Same result - a boy who became known as John the Baptizer, the forerunner (and relative) and Jesus Christ. This verse in Luke was spoken by Gabriel, an angel of the Lord. He came to Mary and delivered not one, but two miraculous messages. Can you imagine? I think we tend to brush by this, but think about it - “Mary, you are going to deliver the promised Messiah even though you are a virgin. Oh, and your relative Elizabeth will have a son in about three months”. I wonder which one surprised her more!
Jesus spoke similar words to the “rich ruler” in Luke 18:27 “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” He was speaking about who could be saved. This tells us that even the worst person can be turned around - no one is beyond redemption. And God can do the turning. God can do the chasing (think Jonah). And God cannot fail.
‘And oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God
Oh, it chases me down, fights ‘til I'm found, leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn't earn it, and I don't deserve it, still, You give Yourself away
Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God’ ~’Reckless Love' by Cory Ashbury
