I love the verse in Matthew 19:26 “with man this is impossible BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.”
What is exciting is what this verse is connected to.
This is a response to a question.
The question makes this amazing verse more amazing.
Here is the question from verse 25: “Then who in the world can be saved?”
The disciples were asking this after the Rich Young Ruler walked away from Jesus.
They, probably thinking of others that needed to follow Jesus, asked this question that we also ask at times.
Our question will be more like this: “Will my mother, my father, my family ever get saved?”
And the answer to that question is….
WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
Who do you want to be saved?
Who have you been praying for?
Over their name declare….WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.
Those words are for your unsaved loved ones.
That is the context that gives hope for us who have people we really want to become Christians.
Think of the hardest case and the most helpless condition of someone you love that does not know Jesus…. and then announce to hell and Satan:
WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
That is your verse. That is your promise.
