Then the angel told Mary, “Don't be afraid! God is pleased with you, and you will have a son. His name will be Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of God Most High. The Lord God will make him king, as his ancestor David was. He will rule the people of Israel forever, and his kingdom will never end.”
Mary asked the angel, “How can this happen? I am not even married!”
The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come down to you, and God's power will come over you. So your child will be called the holy Son of God. Your relative Elizabeth is also going to have a son, even though she is old. No one thought she could ever have a baby, but in three months she will have a son. Nothing is impossible for God!”
Mary said, “I am the Lord's servant! Let it happen as you have said.” And the angel left her.
If you made a list of all the "impossible" things that you can imagine, you might want to title that list "God's Possibilities!" No matter what it is, there can be nothing on your list that is impossible for God. "God can't do that" is not part of the vocabulary of Heaven. The Bible even says that He can do more than we might ask or even think! If you can think it, God can do it.
So here I am pondering the Almighty Power of God and in my lif I am confronted with a situation that is "impossible!" Instead of panic I must praise His name for He can address all my impossibilities!
In recent years there has been a political chant that excited the crowds as they yelled "Yes We Can." It made them all feel powerful and in control, when the opposite was the truth. But with God we can all proclaim with great and complete certainty, "Yes He Can!" YES HE CAN, YES HE CAN!
That's what the angel told Mary when she questioned whether she could have a baby without a husband.
So just make your list of impossible things to include those impossible things that have crossed your path and hindered your life. Take that list to God in prayer and confess that He can do the impossible in your life. Will God fix all those things? Maybe not, but you must know and believe with all your heart that God can! Then you rest in His arms and trust that an all powerful God is in control! The peace in your heart will be great!
"Lord, I confess again that You can do everything, including the impossible. So today I praise You not only for what You do, but also for what You can do! Yes Lord You can. Amen!"
