What's Possible for You?

 Have you been feeling stuck, overwhelmed and defeated? You know, life is flat daunting, and the dreams and visions are lost in the back of your mind, because they look unrealistic. It’s not the road you’ve been wanting to travel, but there you are. Would you like to do a U-turn, and maybe change vehicles while you’re at it?

   Here’s a crazy thought: with God, all things are possible, and because they’re possible for Him, they’re possible for you. “Look, I know God can do anything, but how do I know He wants to do those things in my life?” Are you dealing with a trust issue, or do you feel unworthy of Him working in your life? It’s easy to feel that way. In the church world, we hear it all the time: “I’m so unworthy!” Hogwash! That’s bad theology sold as humility, working overtime to look pious before others. Is Jesus worthy? Of course, and that makes you worthy (see 2 Corinthians 5:17,21). He is our Worthiness!
   If it’s a trust issue, consider this: Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation . . . (Hebrews 6:17-18). 2 Timothy 2:13 If we believe not, yet He abideth faithful: He cannot deny Himself.
   Because of God’s very nature, it is impossible for Him to lie, much less, deny Himself! Many have been proven unfaithful, but not God. Another reason you can trust Him is He loves you. He has you’re best interest at heart. It’s in the Bible!
   The circumstances of life will often seem as if they’re in opposition to the vision or promises of God. Even though the main thrust of this blog is not the testing of our faith, it does still play a part in the scheme of things. 1 Peter 1:6-7 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
   God’s reality is often mocked, and passed off as fantasy. How often have we heard, “you need to face reality?” When all people know is the physical, carnal realm of the world, the spiritual seems far-fetched. Consider this: God spoke the physical realm into existence. So which is greater, the physical realm or His Word? This comes down to another question: to whom have you been listening? Whose report will you ultimately believe?  
   Sometimes, the desires and visions appear to be self-generated because of their size. Hence, another reason these things get pushed to back of the mind: the fear of self-deception. It’s easy to latch onto that one, especially after seeing some people boast of what they’re going to do, only fall flat on their faces. We don’t want to be that person. This simplest way to avoid self-deception is humility. Submitting to the will of God leads us to the true promises of God, and keeps our focus on the right vision.
    Psalm 34:4-5 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.
   Two things to take home: one, when you delight yourself in Him, you will also align with His will. In the process, He will place His desires for you in your heart. And that simply means it was His desire first. He wants it for you more than you want it.
   Secondly, by committing your way to Him, He is free to bring it to pass. People often get stuck in the how, and lose sight of God. They believe it’s their responsibility to bring it to pass. That can be very overwhelming. To be sure, they have a role in its fulfillment, but it’s connected to obedience. Our part is trusting Him, while listening and obeying His instructions. Sometimes that simply means waiting on Him. Other times, we will have some specific things to do. Be we do those things in concert with Him.
Finally, be patient. God’s timing is perfect, and if there’s waiting involved, it serves His purpose. And His  purposes are always good!
