While the statement “Nothing is impossible” may sound appealing, it is not accurate. Jesus said, “with men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible”(Matthew 19:26). In reality, there are many things that we might perceive to be very difficult or outright impossible. However, it is through our belief in a higher power; our belief in God, and the strength of our faith that we can overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges and achieve the impossible. It is crucial to maintain this distinction and recognize the role of faith in making the impossible become possible.
While it is good to have some sort of self belief, it is important to understand that it is the spirit of God at work within you that makes you unstoppable. John 15:5 (ESV) says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” A true Christian believes that without acknowledging God, nothing is possible. This assumption guides their actions and decisions. The statement “nothing is impossible” has the potential to draw attention to yourself and make you boastful.
Your mission to steer your world towards a better future is not an easy one. In moments when we reach the limits of our human capacity, God strengthens us. In times of confusion, deadlocks, and dilemma, we receive clarity of purpose. We must reinforce our dependence on God at every passing moment by insisting that “with God, all things are possible.” This perspective echoes Martin Luther’s approach when he famously stated, “I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” When you have complete faith in God, you will seek him through his word and prayer.
