Nothing Will Be Impossible with God

Nothing Will Be Impossible  with God

Luke 1:37
For nothing will be impossible  with God.

This was stated  by the angel Gabriel,  who announced to the virgin Mary  that she would become the mother  of the Lord Jesus — and that her cousin Elizabeth  was already pregnant  with John the Baptist.      Elizabeth and her husband,  Zacharias,  were well advanced in age,  so her pregnancy  was definitely a miracle.      Because all this  was so amazing to Mary,  the angel Gabriel  settled her mind  by assuring her that,  nothing will be impossible with God.”

All of those involved — Zacharias,  Elizabeth,  Joseph,  and Mary — were firm believers  in the LORD,  and trusted God  to lead their lives.      Luke 1:6  describes Zacharias and Elizabeth  by saying,

And they were both righteous  in the sight  of God,  walking blamelessly  in all the commandments  and requirements  of the Lord.

Then,  in Luke 1:30,  the angel Gabriel told Mary,

Do not be afraid,  Mary;  for you have found favor  with God.

It was her faithfulness  in living for God  that caused God  to favor her.      Then,  in Matthew 1:19-20  we learn  what sort of person  Joseph was  when he found out  that Mary was pregnant  before they came together.

And Joseph her husband,  being a righteous man,  and not wanting to disgrace her,  desired  to put her away  secretly.      But when he had considered this,  behold,  an angel of the Lord  appeared to him  in a dream, saying,  “Joseph,  son of David,  do not be afraid  to take Mary  as your wife;  for that which has been conceived in her  is of the Holy Spirit.”

Joseph then willingly  took Mary  to be his wife,  in spite of  the inevitable gossip  in the community.      God’s timing was perfect  for both pregnancies — and they were both  according to a number of prophecies  in the Old Testament.      God Almighty  had prepared the hearts  of all of these people  because they were willing  to let God  lead their lives.

Not everybody  is willing  to let God guide their lives.      That brings about  both earthly  and eternal consequences.      Psalm 78  reviews the story  of Israel’s constant waywardness,  discipline from God,  and many returns  to God.      So many  of Israel’s problems  were due to the fact  that they didn’t  teach their children  about God’s ways.      So Psalm 78:5-8 says,

For He established a testimony  in Jacob,
And appointed a law  in Israel,
Which He commanded  our fathers,
That they should teach them  to their children;
That the generation to come  might know,  even the children  yet to be born,
That they may arise  and tell them  to their children,
That they should put their confidence  in God,
And not forget the works  of God,
But  keep His commandments,
And not  be like their fathers,
A stubborn  and rebellious generation,
A generation  that did not prepare its heart,
And whose spirit  was not faithful  to God.

We need  to let our hearts  be prepared  by God’s word to us — and we need  to teach our children  God’s word,  so that they will not be lost eternally.      It only takes one generation  to totally forget about God  and have no clue  about the blessings  and salvation  we can have  in Jesus Christ.

Do we want to be blessed  and favored by God?     “Nothing will be impossible with God.”      We need to abide  in the truths  of God’s word.      As we let God  guide our lives,  and trust His ways,  we will be blessed  with His peace  and eternal life.      Then our hearts  will sing  like Mary,  “Hallelujah!      My soul exalts the Lord,  and my spirit  has rejoiced  in God my Savior.”
