The Impossible

I believe that God is looking for a generation that will dream of great things and dare to set about achieving them for His glory. He is searching the earth for those with extraordinary faith, people of sincere prayer and actions of love. He desires that someone will look at their circumstances (impossible dilemnas) and they will declare that with God "All things are possible."

Here is quote I heard recently:

"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they have been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It is an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It is a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing."

That quote came from Slam Magazine in an advertisement for Adidas sneakers! Wow!

This is just a sneaker ad people! It is used to movitate athletes to physically excel and wear Adidas when they go for it.

How about applying those thoughts to our spiritual walk? Power to change the world?

When God promises to go before us, when He promises to fight for us, when He promises to carry us through, what else do we need to know? When God gives us the dream and tells us to take it, why do we still see impossibility?

Oh God, have patience with us and help us to be different. Can it be that we are plagued by doubt and fear? Do we really believe in God?

When we have the guts, we will see the glory of the Lord. Just ask the snail in these pictures.

So there. Nothing's impossible...

Everything you typed describes exactly the way I feel. Impossible is nothing. I desire to do anything for God. I have these big dreams I can't even explain, and my best friend tells me that when she was praying about me, God told her He has something bigger than I can imagine for me. I can't even begin to imagine, and so I'm just trusting God, and taking the steps He wants me to take, when He wants me to take them. Sometimes I wonder if I could even accomplish what I'm dreaming, but then I remember that it isn't me accomplishing these dreams, it is God. Knowing that it is all God, and I am His instument to do His will makes anything seem possible.
