Friday’s Word-Impossible Is Nothing

Friday’s Word
Impossible Is Nothing
Luke 1:37

“ ’Impossible’ is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than explore the power they have to change it.

Impossible is not a fact, it’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a dare, it’s a date.
Impossible is not potential, it’s temporary,
Impossible is nothing.

Most big words mean the same thing as small words (example of “maid” and “household technician”). The word impossible is simply saying you “can’t” or “don’t” want to do something. It says that you would rather live in the place of complacent rather in a place of content. You would rather eat your sandwich rather than have a gourmet meal. It puts up a barrier between “your will” and God’s will”.

But this quote is telling us that small men LOVE this word.
Small men- or shall we say “weak men” mostly feel inadequate, less, always making excuses to do or not to do something. Always a reason for coming up short (excuse the pun). These are the people that can’t think outside the box. They don’t want to ruffle the feathers of others or rock the boat. They can’t see the forest for the trees; they feel that nothing can be done. There is a variation of a statement made by Jesus in Matthew, Mark, and Luke that says “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible”. He was speaking to a man that want to follow Him and the man stated he knew the law from his youth and felt he could do a service. But when Jesus told the man to give up his possessions in order to follow Him, his actions told Jesus “that is impossible”.

The word “Impossible” is a faithless word, it has no backbone, no grit to it. You are turning your back on everything to live in a place of obscurity with impossible. Hebrews 11:6 tells us “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”. But if you have the faith to do the impossible, the Bible says in Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible”.

Impossible is mentioned eight times in the Bible and it was astonishing to me to see this because the letters in the word “possible” is eight. The number eight is the number of new beginnings…how can a word that limits something represent new beginnings? Then I began to look at the letters in “impossible” and there are ten letters. In the Roman numerical system, the number ten is represented with an “X”. I want to let you to know the next time someone says it is impossible, give them the “X”. the next time someone says “you can’t”, give them the “X”. The next time someone says “you will not” you give them the “X”. The “X” is your new beginning…it is your transition from the impossible to the possible.

This quote is summed up in the last line “impossible is nothing”.
