Verse for Today: Thursday, January 31, 2013
Psalms 113:9 – He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord.
In a world of impossibilities where many things are beyond man’s control, God comes in to make it possible. There are many situations when we are absolutely helpless. We are written off by others and eventually we also leave ourselves in the lurch of hopelessness. Such hopeless situations lead people to quit and destroy themselves. But if such situations are handed over to the creator and sustainer God, He will turn it into positive and productive situations. There are barren people and barren lives which bring forth nothing good. When Prophet Jonah was thrown into the roaring billows, nobody thought that there was any future for him. Joseph in the pit was thought to have no hope of seeing sunlight again. A lot of people thought that there was no hope for Jerusalem after the captivity. All people around wrote David off and never had any positive outlook about his life. No one thought Sarah would have a child. Hannah was written off by all. So was Elizabeth. When Jesus was crucified, His executors thought that His case ended there. Peter was in a hopeless death row and had only a few hours in front of him. Whoever thought that Daniel would ever come back from the lions’ den? Everyone was absolutely sure that within split seconds, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego would turn into ashes. But in all these situations, our God performed the impossible and turned their lives around. He put hope in the hearts of all who looked unto Him for answers. He made the barren to become productive. He made the childless woman a mother of children like that of Hannah. He does this even today in the lives of His precious children by turning their impossible situations into certainties of His abundant blessings. Today He is waiting for us to turn our lives at His disposal so that He can take it, remold it and enlarge it.
Dear friend, are you encountering impossible situations in your life lately? Even after doing all you can, are your situations remaining impossible and that there seem to be no hope for it to become brighter? Have you already given up or are you contemplating to quit? But it is never too late to give God a chance to handle your situations. Remember, there is nothing impossible for Him. He can turn around any impossible situation into great possibilities through His divine power. He is able to make success out of your failures and victory out of defeats. He is able to feed thousands in the desert with meager substance. He can give gourmet meals to His servants through divine messengers. He can bring back an axe from a river full of deep waters. He can break strong city walls by just making people walk around it by faith. He can make a Prime Minister out a prisoner. He has brought several people back from death. He can hold rain and bring it back at His will and pleasure. He gives barren women children to live as happy homemakers. He sets prisoners free and breaks open iron gates of maximum security prisons. He releases lives which are under the bondage of sin. Today He is waiting for you to go to Him to hand your life and your seemingly impossible situation to Him. He will take it in His creative hands and turn it around to one of hope and life with multiplier impact. The only thing that stands between you and your Lord in seeing a great turn around in your life is your willingness to hand your life situation over to Him. He will remold, reshape, revive and rejuvenate you so that you would bring forth greater fruitfulness for Him. If you are unwilling to let God handle your situation, you are missing an opportunity for a great rebuilding of your life for your happiness and His glory.
Luke 1:37 – For nothing is impossible with God.
