MAKING THE IMPOSSIBLE BECOME POSSIBLE
We’ take our bible reading from Luke 1:26-38
26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.
Making the Impossible Possible
I am sure you are familiar with the usual expressions of some people, which go this way: It is impossible, it cannot happen, forget it, you are dwelling in a fool’s paradise.
We will introduce you to another side of life which many people on this earth and even presently are experiencing: another level of experience indeed is a level where you can experience situations and circumstances labeled as impossible become possible.
This is the experience of Mary the mother of JESUS. How do you explain the situation wherein a single lady and a virgin for that matter will become pregnant without the covenant of sexual union? Yes: the GOD who designed the biological method of sexual union that leads to pregnancy can decide to bypass it to suit HIS purposes.
Today, medical science has introduced other ways of getting pregnant. But basically it follows the same pattern of union of male sperm and female egg.
Perhaps you have classified certain situations or circumstances in your life as impossible, hear me and hear me again: The impossible shall become possible in your life…in JESUS Name’. For with GOD nothing shall be impossible.
Let me take you through seven keys that can re-position you to begin to experience the impossible becoming possible.
- Number one key – The Promise of God. To experience the impossible becoming possible, you must believe the promise of GOD. The promise of GOD is a revelation of HIS will and purpose. When we act in obedience to HIS will, HE will back us up. GOD is not a politician. GOD is the owner and creator of all things visible and invisible.
The bible says in Number 23:19
Numbers 23:19 that,
19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
In Romans 4:17-21
17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb:
20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
Abraham remains our perfect example. He did not waver through regarding the promise of GOD as unattainable. He was fully persuaded that GOD has power – or authority to do what HE has promised. I am not encouraging you to step out recklessly and believe that the impossible will become possible; rather, you should ensure that you have a specific promise of GOD in that your situation. The Word contains all the promises of GOD. As you read them and mediate on them, a particular one will jump out from the LORD, and the HOLY SPIRIT will impress it on you as yours.
If you must experience the impossible becoming possible you need to work on your faith in GOD. Mary said, “Let it be unto me according to Your Word” which means, she accepted the word spoken to her by the angel and believed that it will come to pass. And of course it did come to pass.
- Number two key is prayer. To experience the impossible becoming possible, you must have an effectual and fervent prayer lifestyle. JESUS taught HIS disciples to pray and not to give up. You must pray and not give up. Pray until you get an answer.
Some people unfortunately have become prayer-collectors. It is popular now to hear someone say literally, I went to collect prayer. While I will not discourage you from going to someone to pray for you, you should be careful where you go and who prays for you. Secondly, rise above this level of plus-GOD-minus-Satan type of prayer. Prayer is not all about back-to-sender, HOLY GHOST fire etc. In the days of Hannah who was labeled barren she quietly went to the temple in Shiloh and negotiated her case with the Almighty GOD. She went home and after a period of time she became pregnant. She later came back to Shiloh to fulfill her own part of that negotiation.
Friends, learn to pray; and raise your level of prayer. Prayer is powerful. Prayer helps you form intimacy with GOD where you can appeal to HIS compassion.
- The third key is praise. Praise! Another key that leads to experiencing the impossible becoming possible is praise and worship. Praising GOD and worshiping HIM even under that impossible case opens closed doors. Do you recollect that Paul and Silas were imprisoned by the Jewish Authorities? They began to praise GOD at midnight. Their voices were heard by other prisoners. In that impossible situation they were in agony inside the prison.
The Most High responded to their praises and delivered them. The method of deliverance is up to GOD. But just praise GOD. Do not ask GOD to send HIS Angels. HE knows how to deliver you.
At this point my spirit reaches out to you to proclaim that impossible circumstances will give way to the power of GOD…in JESUS’ Name.
Learn to raise GOD. Learn Hymns: Biblical choruses! Worship GOD in your public and privacy – it works.
- The number four key is positivity. Positivity means having or developing a positive attitude of faith. We must believe that our prayers will be answered. All things are possible to him who believes. If you can believe you shall see the glory of GOD. Put away all doubts, unbelief and fear. Instead fill your heat with faith and confidence in GOD. Go about, not attracting pity to yourself, but with a joyful and happy disposition. People accuse Christians of having dejected disposition – not happy. But the people of GOD are – should be – the happiest people on earth. If not for any other things, your citizenship is in heaven. The bible says in Mark 11:24,
Let’s read from the Book of Mark 11:24,
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Friends, we stop here today and will continue this topic in the next edition of this broadcast. Let us pray.
Heavenly FATHER, the FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, it is your will and purpose that the impossible situations in our lives will turn to be possible. YOU’ve done it severally. And we pray today that our people will learn how to turn impossible situations to possibility – because our GOD has promised so. May YOUR Name be glorified as YOU motivate everyone of us who has heard the Word today…in JESUS Mighty Name we pray. AMEN!
