What mountain are you trying to climb today? What hill are are looking at, thinking that there is no way that you can do this? What challenge do you face that is worrying you to death?
What are you up against today? What thing do you face, that to you, looks impossible, and leaves you with no hope? What are you to do?
Listen to what happens in Luke 1: 35-38:
And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God. And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For nothing will be impossible with God.” And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.
This is the story that’s called “The Annunciation.” This is where the angel tells Mary that she will give birth to Jesus. And her response, with a greater challenge than anything we will face is “let it be to me according to your word.”
How could she have such confidence? How could she have such hope? How could she trust in a situation that seems to hard, to challenging, to much, for someone to handle? This is how.
She believed the word that that the angel spoke – Nothing is impossible for with God. Nothing. Nothing.
God is bigger than that mountain. That challenge. That fear. That doubt. That hurdle. That, whatever. God is bigger. God is stronger. God is more powerful. With God, nothing is impossible.
Believe that, today. Have hope in that today. With God, nothing is impossible. Hold tight to Him. Trust in Him. And He will make a way.
