God is the God of the Impossible. There is not a thing that God cannot do. Generally, the impossible is something beyond our control or human ability.
When God said to Abraham that his wife would be with child, Sarah laughed because she was old and well above the age of conceiving. However, notice how God replied to Sarah...
Genesis18:14 “Is any thing too hard for the LORD?”
The Lord asked the question not expecting an answer but rather as stating the obvious. In this case God promised Abraham that from his seed would come a great and mighty nation, and that God would show Himself strong, and demonstrate His power through feeble people.
Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think…”
There are some reasons why God will not Work the impossible.
1. Not the right time
There are times a person may doubt if their prayer will ever be heard. Christians can mistake the silence of God to be unanswered prayer. However, it could be that God has already answered but it is not the right time; or it could be that the answer was not as you expected and God’s desire was to do a mighty work in you and work patience in your life; which leads us to the next point.
2. Asking amiss
James 4:3 “Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.”
Not everything we ask God to do He is going to do. If we do come before the Lord in prayer, what we ask God must be in-line with His will. He knows best! Next point is:
3. Lack of Fasting
Mark 9:28-9 “And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? vs. 9 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting”
Fasting with good motives demonstrates dependence on God. It helps a person be God-dependant, and not self-dependant. Anna was a widow who “...served God with fastings and prayers night and day.” Luke 2:35-37
4. Lack of Faith
Matthew 13:58 “And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.”
A person’s Faith is strengthened by hearing the Word of God. However a person can be exposed to God’s powerful Word and still choose not to trust it.
In Christ Alone,
