Christians, recently I was listening to a new favorite song, Unstoppable God by Elevation Worship. As I was listening to the lyrics “Unstoppable God, let your glory go on and on, Impossible things in your name they shall be done.” The Holy Spirit began to speak to my spirit about what I am believing in God for in my life. Am I believing for the possible, the mundane, the easily achieved, or am I truly believing in God for the IMPOSSIBlE, the miraculous, the amazing and wonderful!
Too often, I know for myself, I am content in believing for the possible. I live out my day to day, looking at my abilities, my situations, my circumstances, and I believe and pray for the mundane, the achievable, the realistic outcomes in life. You know what I have seen happen in my life? Exactly what I was believing for, exactly what I had the faith to believe for.
Whether it’s the promotion at work, you are already lined up for, the good weather for the weekend that has a clear forecast, or the good grade on the test you are properly studied for. Praying for the predictable, is not wrong, by any means, but it does not tap into the deep faith that Jesus talks about, to move mountains, to do the impossible.
When we read the bible, we hear stories of impossible things happening. A woman touching the hem of Jesus’ garment, should not in the natural guarantee physical healing. However, this woman had faith, believed IN the impossible, and she received her healing. The Centurian soldier caused Jesus to marvel at his faith, for he believed if Jesus just said the words, it was done. Abraham is one of my favorite examples of faith, from leaving His hometown, to trusting God with his legacy, and ultimately willing to sacrifice the very promise God gave him in obedience. Against all conventional wisdom and logic, Abraham lived a very blessed life. David and Goliath, Daniel and the Lions den, the fiery furnace, the red sea, walls of Jericho: all examples where faith in God returned impossible results for them.
Jesus was the perfect embodiment of God’s will for faith in Him. Walking on water, water to wine, raising the dead, healing ALL who were brought to Him, casting out demons, feeding the multitudes, even His own resurrection from the dead, was IMPOSSIBLE in the natural realm we live in, but we serve an unstoppable God who does impossible things, DAILY.
The bridge of the song states, “Nothing shall be impossible, Your Kingdom reigns unstoppable. We’ll shout your praise forevermore, Jesus our God unstoppable.” Is this how we look at God, is this what we pray for, believe for, speak out in our lives? God can do ANYTHING, especially the IMPOSSIBLE, will we believe Him for it? I know for myself, I want to start believing God for more and more, not vainly or for my own gain, but for His glory and His kingdom and His will in my life. God is only limited by my faith in Him. I pray that as we seek God for the impossible, that He honor our faith with unstoppable, undeniable, breakthrough and victories. When we see the impossible, and experience the miracles of God, we give Him all the glory, and honor, and praise, now and forever, in Jesus name, Amen.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men this is impossible, but all things are possible with God.” Matthew 19:26 (AMP)
For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. Luke 1:37 (AMP)
“What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.” Mark 9:23 (NLT)
Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]. Hebrews 11:1 (AMP)
I know that you can do everything and that your plans are unstoppable. Job 42:2 (GW)
