I have heard this verse preached in many different ways. Its meaning depends on where you place the emphasis.
"For with God nothing shall be impossible". There is nothing that is impossible for God to do. He created all that exists. He can cause blind eyes to see, deaf ears to hear, lame feet to walk, heal disease, send water from a rock, turn back the clock, etc. There is nothing that He cannot do- nothing is too hard or difficult for Him.
"For with God nothing shall be impossible". It is impossible for God to do nothing. He does not just sit in heaven twiddling His thumbs looking for something to do. He is always commanding, creating, working, fulfilling, revealing and moving on behalf of all of mankind.
Another meaning from the verse I want to focus on this morning is-- "For with God nothing shall be impossible". When we are "with God", and God is with us, there is nothing that shall be impossible for us. "With God", we can do all things. It is not impossible for us to love our enemies, forgive those who hurt us and bless those who curse us when we are "with God". When we are "with God", who can be against us. When we are "with God", it is impossible to go through the fire and get burned. It is impossible to go through a storm and be drowned. It is impossible when we are "with God" for the situation not to work together for our good.
When God was with Moses and Moses was "with God", it was impossible for the Red Sea to stand its ground and not part. When God was with Joshua and Joshua was "with God", it was impossible for the sun not to obey him and set before the battle was won. When God was with Daniel and Daniel was "with God", it was impossible for those lions to devour Him.
When we are "with Him" and He is with us, He empowers, strengthens, enlightens, gives us grace, gives us wisdom, fights our battles, heals us, delivers us, saves us, rescues us, helps us, and gives us everything we need. So therefore nothing shall be impossible for us to do when He is with us because nothing is impossible for Him.
Have a great day. When we are "with God" nothing shall be impossible.
