In Luke Chapter 18, verse 17, He [Jesus] said, “The things that are impossible with men are possible with God.” [King James Bible]
Knowing God and believing in Him links you to His might and His power to overcome obstacles that seem impossible to beat. We may do all we can, trying to think of solutions and ways out. But our challenges remain.
Or we may be weakened by wrong choices and behaviors that lead to destruction in our lives. We may really want to change, but keep on doing what we’ve been doing that hasn’t helped us.
What can we do? How can we fight back what haunts us? How can we resist the desire to give up when we’ve failed so many times to change ourselves?
I love God and I know God, but I do still struggle. Hurt and fear and pain are a part of my life. I am sensitive and vulnerable. I have come to the end of my rope many times, and it’s God who has helped me and soothed me and comforted me. It is God who has saved me from myself and loved me all along. I don’t deserve His help and His love. I’ve done wrong things over and over again. I’ve had wrong thoughts that I would be ashamed to have revealed.
I am presently in tatters, but I know God will lift me up out of this pit because He is faithful, He’s done it before and He’ll do it again. I don’t know what my future holds, but I know that God will be with me, and He’ll make a way for me, even though I can’t see it now.
Whatever you are facing, no matter how big it seems to be, no matter what you fear might happen or what is already on your doorstep, go to God! Pray, telling Him plainly what is wrong. God can handle anything you have to say. Read the Bible, it will give you strength. Remember that reading the Bible involves more than your intellect. It is a spiritual activity, and you will learn about God not only in your mind but also in your spirit.
Cling to God. Tell Him the things you can’t tell anyone else. Give yourself that release, and know that you can trust Him with every part of you.
Bring those impossible situations in your life to God. You’ve done all you can do, or you don’t know what to do, or you’re too weak to do what you think you need to do.
In Psalms Chapter 16, verses 1-2, it says: I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my Rock, in Whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. [NIV Bible]
I don’t know about you, but I need a “Rock” in my life. I need help when there’s trouble, and I need to take refuge in God. Let HIm do the undoable for you!
