“For with God nothing will be impossible.”
It’s more than two years since our world was shaken by the arrival of the Covid-19 virus and the chaos began. Despite treatments, new information, and an improving survival rate, we remain mired in fear and uncertainty.
Unfortunately, the pandemic 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.
Many of us feel confused and overwhelmed by all the conflicting reports and opinions.
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 for the Lord to turn the tables on those seeking to destroy us, and instead to bring about great blessings; we may even grow stronger and better from this turmoil, individually and as a nation.
While I can’t conceive of how that could 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.
In Luke 1:37 the angel 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.
