This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Luke 1:37 (ESV)
Today, I am thinking about what it feels like to face insurmountable challenges.
During the past few days, I’ve been thinking a lot about the survivors of these horrific storms that we’ve been faced with. In fact, I’ve imagined the words of encouragement I’d have for them: There is nothing insurmountable or impossible with God.
Turning to the Scriptures, this makes us recall Peter’s time in jail during the Passover celebration. The night before his trial, Peter was in chains and surrounded by eighteen men.
However, the Scriptures show us that no problem is insurmountable for God. Just when it looked bleakest for Peter, God suddenly revealed His hand. The Scriptures state that there was a brilliant flash of bright light in the cell and that an angel of the Lord stood before Peter.
This passage about Peter’s unsolvable situation has clear similarities to the seemingly insurmountable struggles the storm survivors are facing. They have lost homes and precious memorabilia, and they will be living without power for the foreseeable future.
However, through Peter’s story, we know that it is true that God does His best work during these horrific, impossible situations.
Whether you’re a storm survivor, or you’re trying to weather your own personal storm, be inspired that nothing is impossible with God by our side. Therefore, let us continue to foster hope in our hearts and cling to these few words: “For nothing will be impossible with God.” Luke 1:37 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, serve your Father, knowing that He is the Father of the impossible.
