Pastor Freed used this Muhammad Ali quote this morning – “Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
It immediately sprang to mind that in an earlier post to his blog – Jack’s Winning Words – Freed had written a post that pointed out that by strategically using a space and adding an apostrophe, the word impossible becomes “I’m possible”. Perhaps it is within that space that God entered into the picture and added the apostrophe, making it possible.
In the Bible, Jesus often used stories and parables to teach his disciples –
23 Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” 25 When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?” 26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Men tend to classify things as being impossible due to their limited imaginations and lack of faith. Make a little space in your life for God and see if He can add His apostrophe and change the impossibilities in your life into possibilities. Ask God, in your morning prayers, to turn your impossible challenges into possibilities.
Have a great day turning your impossibilities into opportunities. God is with you.
