God of Possibilities

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

—Mt. 19:26

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

—Jn. 3:16

“And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.”

—Mt. 16:18

Gloria Steinem (b. 1934), a social political activist said, “Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.  Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”  People have to see themselves as reaching out for something better in order to obtain God’s promises.  One way of doing so is through divine inspiration.  Bernie Siegel (b. 1932), a retired pediatric surgeon wrote, “Inspiration is the greatest gift because it opens your life to many new possibilities.  Each day becomes more meaningful, and your life is enhanced when your actions are guided by what inspires you.”

It’s therefore for us to build on our notion of knowing and loving God.  This calls for the ability of Christians to pursue these goals by studying the Scriptures, the word of God.  Jean Piaget (1896–1980), a Swiss psychologist said, “The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing great things.”  But this approach calls for determined effort.  Ralph Marston (1907–1967), a professional football player wrote, “You’ve done it before and you can do it now.  See the positive possibilities.  Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.”

Create Possibilities

Mario Testino (b. 1954), a Peruvian photographer said, “My favourite words are possibilities, opportunities and curiosity.  I think if you are curious, you create opportunities, and then if you open the doors, you create possibilities.”  That’s why perseverance is essential for walking in the footsteps of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. People have to do so by preparing themselves.  Zig Ziglar (1926–2012), an author and motivational speaker said, “The person who dumps garbage into your mind will do you considerable harm that the person who dumps garbage on the floor, because each load of mind garbage negatively impacts your possibilities and lower your expectations.”  It’s therefore up to us to prepare ourselves properly for the possibilities of God.  Things could go in a million directions, so it’s wise to think about the good possibilities.  Turn to God, relieve your stress, and rest assure he’ll guide you in the best way of knowing, and walking with him.
