I love Sundays. I love church. I never thought I would say those words for so many years when I was younger. Yesterday’s message was about 2017 being our church’s year of beauty. A year of impossibilities being possible. Our pastor used the example of Mary and how the angel of the Lord asked her to do the impossible. Impossible at least to what humans conceive to be possible. Conceive a child without the help of a man. Pretty impossible.
As I was sitting in service I had my own little revelation in this Biblical event that was an offshoot of what our pastor was preaching.
I heard the Holy Spirit say, “Things are only impossible until someone says yes.”
Sounds profound, right?
All of God’s promises are yes and Amen (2 Corinthians 1:20).
So who makes things impossible?
We do. I do. You do.
When God speaks through the Holy Spirit, He uses examples we can relate to. Those that have an ear, let them hear.
My husband and I have known for quite a few years we were called to evangelism. God has been training us, teaching us, leading us and directing us in the way we should go. Most recently it was revealed to us through prayer and seeking Him, how our evangelistic outreach is to be set up. I won’t go in to all of that right now because it is in the process of being developed and it just isn’t time, yet. I can share with you the “mission”, if you will, that He put on our hearts: Reach the unreachable.
Reach the unreachable.
The name of our website is www.unreachables.org which is being built so bookmark it for later use. There is a “coming soon” page up right now until we have it complete and ready for launch.
When we heard God tell us, “reach the unreachable”, we said YES without hesitation.
It wasn’t until this Sunday the following hit me like a piano on the head from a 10 story building: God asked us to do the impossible.
Unreachable according to Merriam-Webster Dictionary (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/unreachable) means:
: incapable of being reached : such as
a : impossible to get to or get at • a location unreachable by car
b : impossible to contact or communicate with • was unreachable by phone • emotionally unreachable teenagers
c : impossible to achieve : not attainable • an unreachable dream/goal
God asked us to reach the unreachable. He asked us to do the impossible. We said yes.
It is no longer impossible.
He has our attention. He has our cooperation. When God asked Mary to carry Jesus in her womb, he was asking her to do the impossible. It became possible when she said yes.
Reaching the unreachable became possible when my husband and I said yes. The victory is already there because it is now POSSIBLE. The unreachable will be reached.
A ministry is like carrying a child. You take care of it while it is growing. You protect it. You birth it. You continue to protect it. You raise it up in the way it should go. Mary was asked to carry Jesus and she did just that. A King was born. A ministry was born.
What has God asked of you?
Matthew 19:26 (KJV) But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
