Don’t Give Up, Look Up!
Have you ever felt like an impossible brick wall has suddenly appeared in the middle of the road on which you are travelling?
At these times, we are faced with two main options. We could stop completely, turn around and give up or trust God will make a way and look up!
When we travel on wide roads, minor obstacles are easily avoided, but on small narrow roads, even modest sized obstacles can cause a roadblock. The path toward life, which we are on is not wide, it’s narrow and the way is difficult because any obstacles, need to be dealt with rather than avoided.
“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. – Matthew 7:14.
Some of the barriers we will encounter along that way are man made. But when men build a wall, it’s only impregnable to other men. The way to Salvation itself is impossible for men but Jesus makes a way because He is the way.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” - Mark 10:27.
We may be faced with many obstacles along our way, but there are no dead ends on the pathway to life which God has invited us to walk. Instead, there are many opportunities to trust God and prove who He is.
and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform. – Romans 4:21
When facing impossible odds, we must first be sure we are on the right path. Then we can be sure God will make a way where there seems no way. If you are facing what seems impossible on the pathway laid out for you, don’t give up, look up.
When the disciples found it impossible to help a young boy troubled by an evil spirit, the father took his boy to Jesus.
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” - Mark 9:23,24.
Nothing is impossible with God, but instead Jesus says all things are possible if only you believe in Him. You may need to pray as the father of the troubled child did, to help you in the blind spots of your unbelief. God will do what is impossible for men to do if you trust in Him today.
