Nothing Is Impossible

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” […] And the angel answered and said to her … “For with God nothing will be impossible.””—Luke 1:34–37 NKJV

When the angel Gabriel told Mary she would give birth to the Son of God, she did not understand how this could be possible. After all, she was a virgin.

But Gabriel wanted her to understand God’s limitless power. He defined this power with a double negative. He did not say that everything was possible. Instead, he challenged Mary to name something that was impossible! Clearly, boldly, he stated, “For with God nothing will be impossible.”

Today, God gives us this same challenge. Do we face problems that don’t seem to have a solution? Do we have needs that seem overwhelming? Do we feel outnumbered? Do we face goals that seem impossible to meet? Do we see before us a hurdle that seems too high to overcome? Do we face a physical ailment that seems impossible to defeat?

The Bible reminds us that with God nothing is impossible. In other words, there is nothing we can imagine or think of that is impossible. All we need is faith, even the size of a tiny mustard seed (Matthew 17:20).

The Bible urges us to free ourselves from limits and stop being bound by our finite understanding. Instead, realize God is the Creator. Everything is subject to Him. Draw closer to Him. Read His Word and declare His promises to be true. Think His thoughts. Believe Him to release His power in your life. Remember, “With God nothing is impossible.”
