“For nothing is impossible with God.”
Have you ever been afraid to believe what God has put upon your heart? “Do I dare to believe?”……has emotionally and mentally gone through my being more times than I care to admit. And yet here is Gabriel, the angel that stands in the presence of God, declaring that NO THING (nothing) is impossible with God.
“Oh Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.” (Mark 9:24)
My church is being bombarded by the evil one. It seems that with each new breath we learn of another illness, another tragedy, another assault on the people of God, another family struggle, more grief, more hardship, more pain. We rejoice in the God of life and love; we sing His praises and more darkness continues to assail us. Some days I am almost afraid to answer the phone because of what news may be on the other end. I have wondered, “Lord, when will it end?” And yet I know that my Savior lives. I know that Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I know that God IS the victor. I know there is no power greater than God. “Oh Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.”
Gabriel, who witnesses Kingdom action first hand, tells us without hesitation that NOTHING is impossible with God. Gabriel, who stands at the foot of the throne wrapped in the glory of God, takes messages from the very mouth of God to deliver to God’s children.
“Oh Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.”
Bind me Lord, in the fellowship of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and You. Wrap me up in Your glory until all I see is Your Light, until all I understand is You. Be with all believers, everywhere who are struggling with “impossibilities.” Help the message from You through Gabriel to sink fully into our being, our soul, our heart, our spirit, our emotion, our understanding. “God, create a pure heart in me, and make my spirit strong again.” (Psalm 51:10)
