“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
– Matthew 19:26
|Faith presses. It presses into God. It approaches the throne boldly with the kind of access that only a beloved kid — a beloved son, a beloved daughter — has with their parent. It’s the kind of faith that believes that God really can do anything — that He wants to do great things in our lives, and that He’s not holding our sin over our head. That’s the Gospel. Wow. It’s the kind of faith that my kids have when they want me to do something that’s impossible. My kids are literally astonished when I say something’s impossible. They don’t believe me as they say, “Dad, you can do it. Dad, just do it!” But I feel like I can’t.. it’s impossible, I can’t do that. But it’s this exact kind of faith that Jesus teaches us that we should approach the throne of God with. Father, you can do it. Unlike me, an imperfect father, or our perfect Father in heaven who loves us and has all power, says my child, “I will do it.”
Thank you, Lord, for Abraham. Thank you for his example. You called him and he was accredited as righteousness. And you call us.
Do you believe that God will use you, flaws and all?
