All Things

All Things

By Sarah P.
We kind of underestimate the Easter story, don’t we? Jesus’s resurrection is the greatest event that ever occurred! He literally conquered death. When his disciples asked Him about eternal life in Matthew Chapter 19, Jesus gave told them the “secret” behind defeating death: “With God, all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26, NLT)

Read that again. With God, all things are possible. Now apply it to your daily life. All things are possible with God—not just your big, amazing, applause-worthy deeds of valor, not just your career choice or your spiritual callings—all things. The little impossibilities. The things you can’t defeat: feelings of unworthiness, depressing thoughts, character flaws and faults and normal sins that you just can’t nail down—with God, all things are possible.

I was thinking about that the other day. I had gotten frustrated because there was a sin I simply couldn’t defeat on my own. This verse reminded me that God has power over all, even the things that seem small and not worth His time. The truth is, He cares about the small things (1 Peter 5:7)! I can’t conquer my own sinful nature, but there is Someone who can. There is a Healer for my brokenness, a Savior for my sin, a Comforter for my grief, a Faithful One for my faithlessness, a Humble One for my pride.

With God, all things are possible.

The cure for perfectionism, frustration, depression, just plain old sinfulness, is this simple truth: With God, all things are possible.

He doesn’t require us to carry the world on our shoulders; He takes our hands, wipes our tears away, and whispers that we can always come to Him with our burdens (Matthew 11:28-30). Our sin is never too deep, our flaws are never beyond repair, and we are never beyond His reach. Our crosses really aren’t too heavy when the God of the Universe is sharing the load. When I rely on my own strength, I’m refusing to trust Jesus with my life. If I allow myself to think I’m great enough to do life on my own, I’m only fooling myself. Because, really, only with God are all things possible.

Beloved sisters in Christ, listen close. Here’s the secret to changing the world, to defying depravity, to defeating sin and winning the battle with temptation:

With God, all things are possible.

God Bless,
