Nothing Is Impossible

This morning at Crosspoint, we sang “Healer” by Hillsong United.

Nothing Is Impossible

Here are the lyrics:

You hold my every moment
You calm my raging seas
You walk with me through fire
And heal all my disease
I trust in you
I believe You’re my Healer
I believe You are all I need
I believe You’re my Potion
I believer You’re more than enough for me
Jesus You’re all I need
Nothing is impossible for You
You hold my world in Your hands

And this morning as I worshiped I really tried to focus on the words. When I sang “Nothing is impossible for You,” I stopped for a moment and wondered. Do I believe that? Do I really believe that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE?

Because I don’t act like this is what I believe. I act like I believe in the existence of impossibility. Because in my day to day life, I see impossibility everywhere. A sickness that can’t be healed. A problem that can’t be solved. A friendship that can’t be mended. A goal that can’t be accomplished.

BUT I believe in the Word and throughout scripture it is stated that with God nothing is impossible.

“So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.”
Matthew 17:20

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.”
Mark 10:27

For with God nothing will be impossible.
Luke 1:37

So here’s what I am going to do. I am going to try to scratch the word “impossible” from my vocabulary, which I know will be difficult. But even more challenging, I am going to try to ban impossibility from my thoughts. Because I believe in God. Because I believe He is with me. And I believe with Him ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Even erasing the word impossible.

So who’s with me? Who is willing to look at the world overflowing with posibility? Who is willing to banish all  impossibility?

  • Me! Me! I’m with you. Let’s banish that word completely!

  • I would love to banish that word from my vocabulary. It is one I know all too well. I was just watching a movie called, Faith Like Potatoes. The first line in the move says, “They say that the condition for a miracle is impossibility.” I want that to be the mantra I cling to everytime I feel I am faced with something impossible. God is an expert at making the impossible possible. Now, if I can just get that from my head to my heart. Great post!

  • Go for it!! Everything is possible with God!

  • Yes! I’ll join! Vocabulary, not so hard to control. Thoughts, now that’s a challenge. Let’s do it!

    Great post…love your outlook.

  • I’m with you. Great post!

    I am with you, Lindsey. This post also reminds me of Paul’s exhortation at the end of Philippians: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

    It is so easy to get caught up in negative thinking, but as Christians, we have hope that cannot be surpassed and limitless possibilities.

  • great post Lindsey. it’s definitely something i need to think about as well. i think in my finite mind i sometimes put God in a box. it’s a renewing and retraining of my mind that i need to work on. thanks so much for sharing your thoughts.

    Count me in! This is a great post. I think we hold ourselves up because we give up to soon.

  • Perhaps my favorite verse speaks to this too:

    “Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You.”
    (Jeremiah 32:17)

    Impossible Imschmossible, that’s what I say!

    Awesome Post! I’m in!

  • margaret Baker

    This is a great post. i definitely need to banish IMPOSSIBLE from my vocabulary. I am too quick to blurt it out. Help me…as I journey with God to find what is possible for me!

  • Excellent post! It’ so easy for me to put God in my little box of what I think is possible. This post is a good reminder that God’s a lot bigger than my little box. I’m in!

  • Elizabeth Jones

    great post Lindsey…thanks for blessing me with your blog. Got another word to cross off the list – perfect. and replace it with authentic. People will never be perfect but can be aithentic. Anyway, just a thought.

  • Lindsey
    I’m with you, cause everything is possible when God is in control. Great post and the healer song is a great healing song,

  • love it!

    That is the “gulp moment” in the song. You are sining all these words then you realize, oh shoot, really….NOTHING is impossible? Makes you put your faith in action.

    love the encouragement and excitement this post fosters! lets go.

    Nothing is impossible.

  • I’m with you. NOTHING is impossible with God. Ask, and He will show you the way out of anything. But keep this in mind. Sometimes He doesn’t show you the way out — He shows you the way through. In other words, nothing is impossible, He can do anything, but is what WE want Him to do for us always the best thing for us? Let us remember HIS will. We don’t always know what is best in every situation. Only HE does. We must rest confidently in knowing that He will take us through ALL things, but maybe not in the way we planned. But we can rest assured that He has the best plan for us, everything working together for our good if we know Him. Yes, all things ARE possible. When we need something we need only cry out to Him. He will be there for us, ready to help us, ready to show us how to follow Him, ready to show us what action to take, ready to show us what to do or not to do. How to help ourselves with His help, how to listen to Him, how to help another. Sometimes He’ll heal our loved one, sometimes He’ll take them home to be with Him. We don’t always know why, but we know He has ALL things under control. Trust in Him, for He loves you and cares for you with an everlasting love.
