“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. Glory to God in the church! Glory to God in the Messiah, in Jesus! Glory down all the generations! Glory through all millennia! Oh, yes!” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
Repeat after me: God can do anything.
Repeat it again: God can do anything.
Once more with feeling: God can do anything.
Nothing is impossible for God. Nothing. And your circumstances are not the exception to the rule. You are not the odd man out, the freak that God looks at and says, “I can’t do anything with this one.”
No matter what you’re facing, God is stronger. No matter how dark it gets, God can still see you. No matter how long it seems to take, God has not stopped working.
I remind you yet again of what a pastor said: “What seems impossible to us is not even remotely difficult for God.”
If God can create the universe in seven days, then He can create order out of your chaos.
If God brought Jesus back from the dead, then He can resurrect the ashes of your dreams into something far more glorious and beautiful than you ever dreamed possible.
If God loved you enough to save you at your worst, what makes you think He will stop loving you now?
Don’t trust your feelings. They lie. Anything and everything affects them, from eating too much spicy food to way too much caffeine late at night.
Make this your mantra: God works all things together for those whom He loves.
Even when your feelings, your senses, your intuition tells you other wise, this is still true. It will always be true.
