Monday’s Musings #168 & Impossible to the Possible

Impossible to the Possible | What Joy Is Mine (Plus Monday's Musings Link Up)

Faith is an incredible thing. When it is shaken, we are challenged to the very core of our being. We no longer view our situation as one with possibilities. “It can’t be fixed.” “It can’t be changed.” “It will never work out.” Faith takes a back seat in our circumstance.

Yet we are called to “walk by faith.” (2 Corinthians 5:7) It is then we will see the impossible become the possible. Faith defined is “an entire confidence or trust in God’s character and declarations, and in the character and doctrines of Christ, with an unreserved surrender of the will to his guidance, and dependence on his merits for salvation.” (1828 Webster’s Dictionary) Simplified, it means we trust wholeheartedly in God and what He is doing and can do in our life. It’s believing, without doubt or fear, that God will bring about what is perfect for us in any given moment when we seek Him with all our heart.

Does this mean the Lord will make happen what we think should happen? Not necessarily. He will do what is best for us, sometimes it is what we desire. Other times, it may be far from what we were hoping for. Remember, he keeps in mind what will grow us in Him and bring Him glory. Faith is trusting God to bring about the impossible….change a heart, provide a job, restore a relationship, fill a need, heal an illness, etc. “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.(Matthew 19:26) We serve a possible God and we must have faith in that truth when we’re placed in the middle of situation that challenges us.

For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, ‘The righteous shall live by faith.‘  (Romans 1:17) God can take the impossible (that which cannot be done) and make it possible (that which may be now or come to pass). Let’s learn from Abraham in Romans 4: “No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. That is why his faith was “counted to him as righteousness.

My Life: I hope you all had a fabulous week. I finally got my veggie/herb garden planted and everything has settled in. I still need to add flowers in the pots that sit in the front of our house. We also put up a new bird feeder which has drawn not only birds but a family of squirrels. The not-my-favorite news from this week is that summer temps have hit and it has been extremely warm. We had to switch off our heater and turn on our cooler. I also spent some of my week finishing up editing some baby photos I took. And this little baby is so stinkin’ cute that I have enjoyed editing his photos. Maybe I’ll share some on here after I get them to his mama and daddy. Well, that’s it for this week.

Its time to share once again. I’m grateful to have you here. Truly.

    Naomi,

    Faith to believe in the impossible… Oh, how I resonate with that statement! These last six years have been such an intense season of faith for our family. The first two years to bring home our little girl from an orphanage half-way around the world. And the last four years in search of and in belief that God will heal her! Thank you for the encouragement and for hosting the link-up!
    Smiles and blessings,
    Lori (Searching for Moments)

    Sometimes I just wish I could tell God what to do…I figure out how to solve the problem and know just the solution! But you are right, God knows what will grow us in Him and bring Him glory. When I stop to think about it, I know God sees further than I can see. When I look back I know–His way is best!

    You will never know how much I needed to read these words today! Facing some very difficult situations and circumstances can really shake our faith, but your words have given me hope. God must really want me to get that verse in Matthew, because He just brought the same verse to me last night! I trust you and your husband are both completely well now, and I have been praying for you. God bless you with a wonderful day. :)

    This – “Remember, he keeps in mind what will grow us in Him and bring Him glory.” And what will grow us in Him and bring Him glory will be a good and perfect gift. Sometimes, in the middle of all of the things that seem to go wrong or badly, it becomes hard to keep this straight. Thank you for this reminder – I look forward to possible impossibilities! I hope your week is wonderful.
