You Can Do What You Cannot Do
Let's look at two people from the Bible who did the impossible. But they did it anyway, because of God's involvement.
HEBREWS 11:11 NKJ 11 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.
Sarah had a child when she was 91 years old. (Genesis 17:17-21) Physically, it was impossible. She had long since lost the ability to bear children.
But she did what she could not do.
Sarah achieved this impossibility because of God's promise, and because she believed God would keep His promise.
JUDGES 15:14-15 NKJ 14 When he came to Lehi, the Philistines came shouting against him. Then the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands. 15 He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it, and killed a thousand men with it.
Samson killed 1000 of the Lord's enemies with a bone.
He did what he could not do.
No human being is capable of single-handedly killing 1000 people at one time, with no weapon but a bone. No matter how strong or skilled any man may be, he could easily be overcome by such superior numbers.
But with God's anointing and help -- the situation is different.
With God helping you: you have God's ability to do God's will. You can do whatever God's Word says you should do.
Your sufficiency is of God.
Whatever God wants you to do -- He will help you. God does not play favorites. Just as He helped Samson and Sarah to do what they could not do -- He will help you to do His will -- even if "it is impossible."
Without the anointing and help of the Lord, you cannot. But with God -- all things are possible.
SAY THIS: I can do whatever God wants me to do. Nothing is impossible.
