"No More Impossibilities"


"I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13
 
Our lesson at church last night was on James chapter three. Verse eight says, "no man can tame the tongue". I had written a footnote in my Bible years ago that said, "But by yielding to the Spirit he can". There is much that is impossible for us, but there is nothing that is impossible for God. So as I yield myself to Him those "impossibilities" are no longer impossible.
 
It may be impossible for me to "tame my tongue" but the Spirit can and will as I yield to Him. Where it was impossible for me to forgive those who have trespassed against me, as I yield myself to God through His love I can now forgive them. I can now turn the other cheek, go the second mile, love my enemies, bless those who curse me, and pray for those who despitefully use me. I can now walk in victory over besetting sins. I can walk in peace and not vengeance.
 
"All things are possible to him that believes". (Luke 9:23) For the born-again child of God there are no impossibilities, all things become possible. They become possible as we put our faith and trust in the Lord (as we believe on and in Him and His ability). Do I believe that I can do all things through Christ? Do I believe that I can be empowered by Him to do those things that are impossible for me to do in and of myself? If I do believe, I will fully rely upon and yield to Him, then they are no longer impossible because it is no longer me who is doing them, but Christ in me. 
 
Let me sum it up: If we believe that God is able to do those things that are impossible for us to do and we yield ourselves to Him, then those things that were once impossible for us are no longer impossible because it is Him that is doing them through us. 
 
Have a great day. Impossibilities are no longer impossible for us when we believe in and yield to God.

I came across your blog as I was searching for more information on a Bible study regarding possibilities and God's promises and ability to do all that we ask and more. This posting today was right on target for me. Thank you! I often wear a locket with a mustard seed glued inside to remind me to have faith in all circumstances. You confirmed many of the thoughts I have had regarding my walk with the LORD. I know that I will often come back to this site.
