And Jesus said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.” Mark 10:27 NIV
Many times obstacles and fears keep us from moving in the direction we need to go. At times we can feel like we’re bogged down in the mud. Moving at a slow crawl.
My last Hep C treatment felt that way. (In 2012 I used one of the protease inhibitor combinations, Incivek, Peg Interferon and Ribavirin- no longer available due to more effective treatment out.) Side effects seem to override everything in my life during treatment. What seemed impossible to achieve was getting to the finish line, overcoming the obstacles of side effects, dealing with fears of the ‘what if’s.’ When I felt my worse I would regress inward and think what I was dealing with was impossible. My thoughts would begin with, “I can’t. . .”
But with God, he says, your right, you can’t but I CAN and therefore through me, you CAN achieve what you could never do on your own. My obstacles were no surprise to God and certainly not impossible to overcome. I had to stop and listen carefully to His words and to the words I was feeding myself. Did they line up?
What I grazed on affected my thoughts which affected my attitude, my outlook, which affected my actions. If I fed myself the thoughts I can’t, then I felt defeated. But concentrating on God’s can do’s helped transform my thinking to line up with His. The impossible became the possible.
A verse I used often when I felt knocked down by side effects was, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13. God’s CAN DO turns the impossible into the possible.
