Are we in an impossible situation?

“For with God nothing will be impossible.”

Luke 1:37

It’s almost six months since our world was shaken by the arrival of the Covid-19 virus and the pandemic began.

Many of the world’s nations are beginning to climb out of the chaos and depression. Unfortunately, here in the USA, the situation was seized upon as an opportunity to turn the crisis into a political tool and here we are today, still wondering what’s going on. We don’t know what information to believe and whether we are being protected or manipulated.

Add the rioting and violence in some of our cities to this already frightening situation and most of us feel confused and overwhelmed.

What we can agree upon, though, is that we want this all to go away, but we can’t see how we are ever going to return to the life we knew. Perhaps we never will.

I cling to God’s promises and know that He is in control, even in this. It is possible even now for the Lord to turn the tables on those seeking to destroy us, and instead to bring about great blessings; we may grow stronger and better from this turmoil, individually and as a nation.

While I can’t conceive of how that would happen, I remember what is written:


For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord.

Isaiah 55:8

How grateful I am that the God of the Universe is not limited to what I can imagine.

The old hymn, Nothing is Impossible with God reminds us that nothing is impossible when we trust in His word.

Luke 1:37 (above) was speaking to Mary, reassuring her that whether a woman was well past childbearing or an untouched virgin, God was in control of all of life. The same thing applies to us today.

    So true, Jonna. God’s will in this has become more apparent as I have been studying and re-reading the book of Joel in its entirety. It’s a very sophisticated form of rhetoric, God’s rhetoric, God’s message as to who God is and how God works and why. Joel provides a way out of despair into praise!
