Everything is Possible With God

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” Mark 10:27

The verse above has been mentioned countless times and in fact this is one of the verses that I claim and believe everyday. As I pondered while I prepare myself a coffee because having a talk with God is more glorious with it, the Holy Spirit reminded me of the verses prior to what Jesus said about God.

Mark 10:17-19 (NIV)
[17] As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 

Mark 10:18-25 (NIV)
[18] “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. [19] You know the commandments: ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, do not defraud, honor your father and mother.’ ” [20] “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

[21] Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” [22] At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth. [23] Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” [24] The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! [25] It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

Alright, the rich man asked how to have eternal life and Jesus reminded the man with all the laws.

…do not murder
…do not commit adultery
…do not steal
…do not give false testimony
…do not defraud
…honor your father and mother

Then Jesus added in verse 21, Go and sell everything you have and give it to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Can you see? Jesus knows the heart and expose what’s hidden in the heart. The rich man was obviously so into his possession and Jesus said that it’s hard for the rich to enter the kingdom of God. What was Jesus saying? The rich man whom we think as with less flaws maybe because he who has the gold rules with having so much cannot in his own money, wealth and possession by himself can enter the kingdom of God or even save himself.

Humanly speaking, it’s impossible for humanity to enter the kingdom of God. No one can follow all the laws. No one can perfectly put their best feet forward and follow all that God says. No one can buy His laws and enter His Kingdom. 

Yet, in all our imperfections, in our flaws, in our hard heart, in our stubbornness, in our indifference, God made the impossible possible by giving His Son Jesus Christ. In our inability to follow all the laws, God gave His only Son so we can be saved by His grace. God gave us an access to enter into the Kingdom of God by simply making Jesus the very Lord of our lives.

And so, when God provided a way for us to enter Hs Kingdom, will God withhold His destiny for us? Will He give us a hard life as payment for His son? Friends, He give His very best. His begotten Son. 

This is an encouragement for all of us that we can have the best life here on earth because God made the impossible possible because of Jesus Christ. 

Today, may we not be deceived by believing that our circumstances are more real than Jesus. He is more real than our skin. He is working behind the scene for all of us. He prepares the way for us. He is before us. He will never leave us nor forsake us. He chose to die for us so we no longer be living under a curse. 

We have a mighty God. We have a loving God. We have everything by having Jesus in our hearts.
