ALIVE WORD: Mission impossible

Ministers Wilbert and Jacqueline Richardson

“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”
–Mark 10:27

No matter who you are or where you are, there is a situation or a challenge in your life that seems very much impossible.

Today’s devotional is one of encouragement to you.

God wants each of us to trust Him, for He is more than able to make the things that seem impossible, possible.

When I was younger, I loved watching a television show called “Mission Impossible.” In each episode a mission was presented that seemed impossible for the operatives to accomplish, but at the end of the picture, the mission was accomplished and the criminals were foiled. The impossible mission became possible.

Today, no matter what it is in your life that you’re believing God to work out, have confidence in Him. You might have fasted, prayed, and confessed the Word, and you may be standing earnestly in faith believing God. Do not allow your faith in God to waiver now – God has brought you too far. What God starts, He completes, and He is a God who is always faithful to His promises. Concentrate on living a life that’s pure and holy in the sight of the Lord. Do all you know to do as a child of God and be totally led by the Holy Spirit. God is faithful and He promised that when we come before Him in faith and ask without wavering, He will make the impossible possible.

If you’ve been striving in your own strength to make things possible, know that without God you can do nothing. We must trust in, lean on, rely on, and rest in the Lord for Him to make the impossible possible. It boils down to this: if we’re going to trust God, then we must do just that – trust God. The battle is not yours, beloved. The battle belongs to God. What makes the impossible mission possible? Our faith in a faithful God.

“And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you” (Matthew 17:20). Do you have faith enough to believe that the situations you presently face are not too big for God to change? “Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23). Be encouraged today and have faith in God.

Let today be the day that you command every mountain that stands in your way to be removed so that God’s divine will and purpose can be done in your life.

Have you been relying on self to solve your situations or to bring solutions to the problems? “And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God” (Luke 18:27). God works through men and women, but it’s only through God that all things are possible.

Today, man may say something is possible and tomorrow or even later that same day he may say it is impossible. Stick with God. Hold fast to God. God is stable, His promises are sure, and He is never failing. His yes is yes and His no is no. Put your total confidence and trust in God and not in man. God never fails.

Be reminded today that with God, all things are possible. Allow God to make the impossible mission possible.

    Our God is an awesome God, he is mighty to serve and all things are possible with him.

    It doesn’t matter what we may be going through our God is more than able and no situation his too big for him to handle. In Romans 10:11 he tells us ” whosoever trust in him will never be ashame”

    Pastors continue to be obedient to the Holy Spirit and may his communion be with you now and forever. God bless you both richly.

      It was not about telling your business to others. You did what you had to do. You testified about God’s deliverance in your Life, right when you needed Him. If we do not have a testimony about God’s Love for us by our faith in Jesus Christ, we should be concerned; cause it could be that we do not know God’s Love at all, and that is a problem.

      I can relate to your being calm when you suffered this thing. You probably had already begin to apply faith in God, when that happened to you. And faith put you in the Spirit; so Satan could not work through your mind to feed you with his lies of fear, panic, and even telling you are going to die.

      I hope you read my testimony below, about my hearing. Well I have many of those testimonies.

      I live in Toronto; and in 2008 I was in Dominica for a 6 weeks visit with my family. About two weeks when I was there, I went into the city–Roseau–to do some shopping. My sister was with me. At one point I noticed that my purse, with every, every, thing that I needed for my visit and travel was missing.

      I told my sister, and so, we started to go and check with all the stores we were at, to avail. The last place we went was Whitchurch, and as soon as the baggage person saw us he pointed us to the store management office, and there was my purse, sitting on a shelf, waiting for me to claim it. Everything was safe and sound in it.

      I droped my purse at the store, and God caused the person that picked it up to give to it the store management for me, saving me from the malcadee I would have suffered–not having money identification nor anything for me to travel back to Canada.

      After I had my purse back, my sister told me she was so nervous about all that. I told her that I did not feel a thing. In my mind I kept thinking that I have to go back to Canada, and God would not prevent that from happening for me.

      Our God of Love, who is always ready to protect us, did not cause me to be stranded in Dominica without money and all the important things I need to get by with.

      Most of the time, when we are going through difficult things, it is because God is training us to look to Him by faith and in the Spirit; for He is of Spirit and Truth–not flesh and blood–a God of Love, His Person, in Jesus Christ.

    Thanks to you both, Ministers Wilbert and Jacqueline Richardsson. I believe that with God, all things are possible.

    For the past ten years I was stranded with profound hearing disability. For the last five years I could not maintain verbal conversation with anyone, not even members of my immediate family–everyone had to write down what they were saying to me. I could not use a regular telephone; I could not hear a television; I could not understand or even recognize the music of a stereo player.

    But thanks to God! There were people who had patients and understanding to help me during verbal communication. I was able to use a special telephone to do my telephone conversation. I was able to watch television because of close captioning; but I put away listening to music for a long time.

    Is anything impossible with God? Not at all! 10 years later, since July 2010, I now have what is called a cochlea implant to assist me in hearing. Still in rehab, but the devise is called the Bionic Ear–meaning that no one will be able to hear better than me, when my brain has completely adjusted to the implant.

    Medical treatment including surgery, along with the various pieces of that hearing device cost about $55,000.00. I did not have to pay a cent. Is anything imposible with God? Not at all!

    But what is most important of all; I do not need any hearing device, not even my human hearing system to hear God’s Holy Spirit. For God is Spirit and Truth. By faith, He is Life in me. I am on my way towards wholeness and completiong; for my mind is now in its renewal mode.

    That is the reason why Jesus has assured us, nothing is impossible with God. But He also told us, that He could do nothing of His own strength. This is to tell us that the Man, Jesus, functioned completely through the mind of Spirit and Truth–the mind of Love–the core of Eternal Spirit, Christ, God Almighty, in Him.

    We must become like Jesus, connected to His mind by our faith. And having connected to the mind of Jesus by faith, our attitude and conducts are the direction of His Holy Spirit–the Ways of God, the traits of Love. We cannot fail!
