Bible Reading – Psalm 107-109
Psalm 109:26-27 KJV
 Help me, O Lord my God: O save me according to thy mercy:  That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, Lord, hast done it.
Preacher has said, “I just believe with all my heart that there’s never been anybody who has given their heart to Christ that God did not at some point in their life ask them to do something impossible. Faith has to be involved when God asks us to do something we do not think we can do.” It seems that God loves to do the “impossible.”
Jesus says in Luke 18:27 “And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” Over and over again in Scripture, we see people in impossible situations where only God can work things out for the best. There is no way, humanly speaking, that the situations the individuals are in will possibly work out. Noah had to build a boat like no one had ever seen, so they could survive a catastrophe no one had ever imagined. Abraham and Sarah were promised a child when such a thing was not possible. Joseph found himself betrayed by his brothers, sold into slavery, and thrown in prison, but ended up in the palace where his position and authority allowed him to save the world from starvation. Moses survived as a baby to return and be God’s instrument to deliver His people. The Egyptian army was easily defeated in the Red Sea. Throughout Scripture, we see over and over again how impossible situations became a demonstration of God’s power and glory! In each of these circumstances, all we can do is be amazed at how perfectly things worked out as if they were intricately and divinely designed to go exactly as they did. Wow!
Our text in Psalms reminds us of seemingly impossible scenarios where David, and everyone else involved, recognized God’s unmistakable presence and power. Paul writes in II Corinthians 12:9 that Jesus said, “…My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Paul continues by saying, “Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” When we feel overwhelmed and that a situation seems impossible, we must remember that it is in that time where we get to really see Christ work in such a way where it is undeniable to everyone that God has to do it! God will get the glory, and our faith will be strengthened! It was Paul’s and David’s preference to live life desperate for God. How can something that brings us so close to the presence and power of God be considered anything but a blessing?
