Seeking God’s Heart- by Bryan Shelley

Entry for March 26, 2008

Today’s Verse: Luke 1:37 “For nothing will be impossible with God.” NASB

He did create the universe. He did create us. He did many things most would claim are impossible. Do we deep down believe that He is the God of the miraculous and impossible? Let’s just be honest here for a minute. After all, there is no one but God who knows what we are thinking right now. Do we really believe He created everything and everyone? Does that belief translate into our prayers for the sick? Do we dare admit to ourselves (since God already knows) that we pray for God to guide the doctors because we are afraid to set God up for failure if we pray for healing? Do we really believe that God will change people who seem permanently entrenched? Do we pray for God to do the impossible in their hearts? In ours? In context, this verse is part of an angel’s conversation with Mary about Jesus. Can you say “virgin birth?” That has to be pretty far up there on the impossibility scale. Most of us would say we believe that, I would think. We are to pray in His will. Jesus says that anything we ask in His name we will get answered. Stop for a moment and think of something that seems impossible that would be in God’s will. Ask Him for it in Jesus’ name. Are you serious? Are you serious enough to keep praying persistently for this impossible thing to happen until God gives you a clear answer? Prove it. He’s listening.
