"Impossible Promotion"

"He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people".  Palm 113:7,8
Whoever heard of the poor and needy sitting with princes and kings and those of wealth, prestige and power.  The next verse says- "He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children".  How can a barren women become a joyful mother?  The two are totally opposite.  You can't be barren and a mother at the same time.  You can't have sorrow from being barren and have joy from being a mother at the same time. 
These verses sound like a total contradiction.  It is not possible-- the poor to sit with princes and the barren to be a joyful mother.  With man it is not possible, but with God all things are possible.  He is the One who makes all things possible in our lives.  The things that conflict with each other, the things that just don't naturally happen, the things that are contrary to our way of thinking and the things that aren't accepted in society can happen through the Lord.
How was it possible for unlearned fisherman to turn their world upside down for Christ?  How was it possible that a poor widow fed a prophet through a draught?  How did a harlot save her entire family by simply hiding spies and then placing a red cord in her window?  How did all the ordinary people throughout history do extraordinary things for God?
It is not possible for men, but it is possible for God.  He knows how to use weak and foolish things to confound the wise and strong.  He knows how to promote those who need to be promoted.  He knows how to raise up what needs to be brought to the forefront.  He knew how to bring a Hebrew slave out of a prison and place him in a palace to rule the most powerful nation in the world.  God can do it.  He has done it and He will do it.  He knows how to place you where you need to be in order to fulfill His plan and purpose for you.  In due season and at the right/appointed time He will.  He will take what is poor and set with princes.  He will take what is barren and make it produce.  He will promote what needs to be promoted; give favor where it is needed and sit in order what needs to be in order to fulfill your destiny.  Trust Him.  Wait for Him.  Believe Him.  It is not impossible with Him.  
Have a great day.  God knows how to promote, even what seems to be impossible, to fulfill His plan.  It is not impossible for Him.
