"Get Ready for the Impossible"
“He chose to give us birth through the Word of truth.” James 1: 18a NIV
God wants to use His Word to give us a fresh start. Without God’s Word, we could never be saved. We wouldn’t be headed for heaven because we wouldn’t know about Jesus’ death on the cross. We wouldn’t know about God’s purposes for our lives.
Without the Bible we can’t know God. God wants to give you all of that, but it starts with His Word. Through the Bible, God recreates our life.
When I feel like I’m at the end of my rope, God uses His Word to give me a fresh start, a do-over. His Word is often compared to a seed. Once that Word takes root in your heart, it begins to sprout and grow and bare fruit.
As God’s Word does that, God changes your life. That change is always for the better no matter how it might appear in that moment. When God is working, he brings good out of it.
Here’s how Jesus describes His Word in John 6: 63: “The words I have spoken to you, they are full of spirit and life.” It’s not just words on a page, it is spirit and life. It’s the power to transform you and society.
How do you need your life changed? What part of your life do you feel powerless to change? The Bible says that the Word of God can change things that you cannot change on your own.
Make God’s Word a regular part of your life; get ready for the impossible.
Peace in the Lord,
