ALL things are Possible


But my friend sat before me,  and he made the point blank declaration that God had done for him what he could not do for himself.  His human will had failed. Doctors had pronounced him incurable. Society was about to lock him up. Like myself, he had admitted complete defeat. Then he had, in effect, been raised from the dead, suddenly taken from the scrap heap to a level of life better than the best he had ever known! Had this power originated in him? Obviously it had not. There had been no more power in him than there was in me at that minute; and this was none at all. That floored me. It began to look as though religious people were right after all. Here was something at work in a human heart which had done the impossible. My ideas about miracles were drastically revised right then. Never mind the musty past; here sat a miracle directly across the kitchen table. He shouted great tidings. I saw that my friend was much more than inwardly reorganized. He was on different footing. His roots grasped a new soil.                                                                                  Alcoholics Anonymous pg 11

The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?”  Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”                                                                      Mark 10:26-37 NIV

Father, I thank you for your mighty saving power.  You are a God of miracles and I thank you for my sobriety and the new life you have given to me.   Help me to remember today that all things are possible with you.  Help me to look beyond the ordinary and see the extraordinary. I pray that I would know that there is no limit to your love and goodness.                                   In Jesus Wonderful Name, Amen.
