Today’s Scripture: Matthew 19:26 ESV- But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Sometimes we hijack scriptures, don’t we? Hijack and make them fit our desires.
Please hear me clearly that I do believe that all things are possible with God.
This morning in reviewing Matthew 19 I realized I have been guilty of hijacking this scripture. I do not believe we can keep God’s possibilities in context but the context of this scripture does make me consider Jesus’ words today.
Jesus quoted this much-used verse in response to the disciples’ question of who can be saved if the rich will find it as hard as a camel going through the eye of a needle to enter the Kingdom of God.
Do we more often claim these words “all things are possible with God” when we want our way or His way?
I must be careful to call on God’s possibilities not in hopes of being a rich young ruler but to enter His Kingdom over my riches and desires. I know this in only possible with God.
Are you seeking your possibilities or God’s?
Today’s Scripture: Father God, thank You for the teachings of Jesus. Thank You for making all things possible. I desire You and Your Kingdom over all things and I need You to make this possible. Amen
