Believe God For The Impossible

35 As they were emptying their sacks, there in each man’s sack was his pouch of silver! When they and their father saw the money pouches, they were frightened. 36 Their father Jacob said to them, “You have deprived me of my children. Joseph is no more and Simeon is no more, and now you want to take Benjamin. Everything is against me!” ~ Genesis 42:35-36NIV

The saying goes, ‘It’s always darkest just before the light.’ Jacob found himself in this very position. Everything that could go wrong, had gone wrong.

His favorite son, from his favorite wife, was dead, at least from his perspective. They were in a worldwide famine, and Egypt was the only country with grain. The ruler of Egypt was holding one of his sons, Simeon. And to make matters worse, he wanted Jacob’s youngest son by his now dead, favorite wife whom he really loved before he would sell them any more grain.

Jacob cried, ‘Everything is against me,’ as his head fell into his hands. ‘Everything is against me.’

But what he forgot was that God was for him. God was working everything out for him. God was planning on giving back double for his trouble. Not only would he see his dead son, Joseph, alive again, but he would see Joseph’s two sons as well. Something he never thought possible.

So, in this New Year, remember that God specializes in the impossible. Things that you thought were lost will be found. Things you thought were dead and burned will be raised up. God can do exceedingly, abundantly above that which we can ask or think.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Believe God for the impossible this New Year.
