Our Inabilities Are God’s Possibilities

By Dennis Lee

Our Inabilities Are God’s Possibilities…

When God made His promise to Abraham saying, “No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations,” (Genesis 17:5), he had no heir, that is, he had no son. Further, he was ninety-nine years old, and Sarah was about ninety, both well past their childbearing years.

So, how was he ever going to be the father of nations?

But here is the answer. What is impossible to us is possible with God.

This was what Apostle Paul’s pointed out as he continued his argument of faith alone through Abraham’s life.

He said, “‘As it is written: ‘I have made you a father of many nations.’ He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.” (Romans 4:17)

Abraham’s faith was in God alone. His faith was in the all-powerful God who has the power to breathe life where no life exists. Abraham believed that God could give life, make it alive, revitalize, revive, and resurrect the dead. His faith was in the Lord who can create something where nothing exists.

But Abraham’s faith was not just in the promises, but also in the One who is able to keep His promises, and that is no one less than the Lord God Himself.

God is not inhibited by what seems impossible or dead to us. God is not limited by our limitations or our inabilities. What God has promised only He can fulfill and will fulfill because He is God.

When Mary questioned how she could possibly give birth when she never had sex with a man, the angel said, “Nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)

So, let’s put our faith in the Lord God and not in what circumstances may dictate, or what we think we can do, because our inabilities are God’s possibilities, and God is a promise-keeping God even when such promises seem impossible.

This is what Paul based the entirety of his mission upon saying, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13) 

Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

Please consider making the following your prayer today and in the days ahead.

“Lord, while I have my limits, you truly are without limits. You are limitless, and as such nothing is out of bounds that You are not capable of doing. Therefore, I ask that you fill me with the strength and courage to do those things that are beyond my capabilities. And for those obstacles that block my forward progress, demolish them so that I can reach the fullness of the potential You have placed within me. Therefore, Lord, I thank you for all that You have done, and I look forward to even more of what You are going to do. AMEN”

God makes the impossible possible. 

Take care and God bless

    The phrase “…but God” seems to be appropriate here.
