Faith Makes All Things Possible

In Luke 1, God sent the angel Gabriel to the virgin Mary to announce to her that she would give birth to the Son of God.  Mary asked the angel how could this be because she was a virgin.  Gabriel told her that the baby would be conceived  supernaturally because nothing is impossible with God. Mary believed the angel Gabriel and agreed to bear the Messiah, Jesus.  She believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her.  Faith makes all things possible.

All things are possible to him who believes.  God delights to work His miraculous power in the most impossible circumstances.  Miracles strengthen our faith and brings glory to God.  

God demonstrated His miraculous power when He parted the Red Sea so that the Israelites could cross over safely.  The Israelites were fleeing slavery from Egypt when Pharaoh and his army began pursuing them.  It seemed as if the Israelites were trapped.  Pharaoh and his army were behind them, the Red Sea in front of them and the mountains on each side.  However God parted the Red Sea and the Israelites crossed over on dry land.  Then God made the water recede back on Pharaoh and his army and destroyed them all.  God made a way out of no way.  Faith makes all things possible.

In 2 Kings 4:1-7, God provided supernaturally for a widow.  Her husband, a member of Elisha's Prophetic Company, had died.  Sadly she didn't have an income to pay off her debt, so the creditors were going to take her two sons to work as slaves instead. She needed a financial miracle to pay off the creditors so that her sons would not be taken away from her.  She went to the prophet Elisha and asked him for help.  Elisha asked her what she had in her house; she said only a little oil.  He told her to go get all the empty jars from her neighbors and had her and her two sons enter her home and shut the door.  She began pouring the little oil that she had into each jar.  The oil kept flowing miraculously until there were no more empty jars.  Elisha then told her to sell the oil, pay off her debts and live on what was left.  The widow believed and obeyed God's Word and received her miracle.  Faith makes all things possible.

We serve a supernatural God.  He is the God of miracles.  He is the same yesterday, today and forever.  He will make a way out of no way.  He is the Way Maker, Promise Keeper, Miracle Worker and the Light in the darkness. Faith makes all things possible.  Let us continue to strengthen our faith in Him.  Be a voice for the gospel.  Wear Scriptures!
