Limitless in God’s Possibilities

ImageOpportunity. Achievement. Potential. Promise. All of these words are synonymous to a word that you should take to heart: POSSIBILITY! To me, it’s a horrible thing to wake up in the morning and realize you have absolutely nothing to look forward to. In a real sense, it makes life all the more miserable to wake up and say, “I don’t know what I’m going to do today.” What makes it far worse is not knowing what you are going to do with the rest of your life.

How can one make it just going through the motions, settling for the same-old thing the same-old way?

The reality is that life itself will turn some peculiar corners that will drive you crazy with its ups and downs, highs and lows, good days and bad days. But you must realize that God has sent you here for a purpose and a mission! Guess what—if God has sent you here for a mission and a purpose, it means that ‘all things are possible.’

I saw this very clearly on November 4, 2008 as President-Elect Barack Obama, II stood on stage in Chicago’s Grant Park and said the all too familiar chorus, “….all things are possible”. In a nation whose past is plagued by racism, slavery and injustice, America as a whole could see a tangible expression of a greater reality; that with God, all things are possible.

This brings to mind the words of Christ in Matthew 19:26 where it says, in summary, “…with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible…”.

As I prepare to insert these words into the blogosphere, I cannot begin to imagine the devastating toll and tremendous impact that life, circumstances and situations have dealt many a strange hand. There is comfort and consolation in knowing that God is in control of our circumstances; and there is one thing left for most (actually ALL) to do—TRUST HIM!

Proverbs 3:5 tells us to, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”.

There are four things we need to remember through the words of Solomon in Proverbs 3.

  1. Trust God with everything.       Solomon says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart“. This is a clear call for your trust. The very Object of your trust is ‘in the Lord’. He is the Creator of the universe and the Sustainer of everything that exists. He desires to be the center of your life. That is why the nature of your trust resides, ‘In your heart’.       He wants your passion, your praise and your delight!
  2. Trust God above everything.  Solomon also says, “and do not lean on your own understanding“. If you are like me, you have many reasons to trust your circumstances that you see each day; rather than a God Who is infinite and does not show Himself to you in black and white. The reality is that God wants your mind and your understanding (Ps. 26:2; Isaiah 1:18; Matt. 22:37; Rom. 12:2; Phil. 2:5). Remember, in order for your circumstances to change, your thinking must change!
  3. Trust God in everything. Another thing that Solomon says in Proverbs 3:5 is, “In all your ways acknowledge Him“. Whether it is sickness, loss of a loved one, relational chaos, a wayward child, an addiction or living through hundreds of years of racial inequality in pursuit of the White House—trust God in everything.
  4. Trust God through everything. The final thing Solomon says in Proverbs 3:5 is, “and He will make straight your paths” (v. 6b) This is a promise of divine guidance; for He will direct your paths and order your steps!

Finally, since you have a mission and a purpose, you had better recognize that God and the world are waiting on you to do what you are meant to do. My question is, what are you waiting for?

The only way to get love is to be lovable. It's very irritating if you have a lot of money. You'd like to think you could write a check: 'I'll buy a million dollars' worth of love.' But it doesn't work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get. - Warren Buffet
