IMPOSSIBLE

Then, Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Again, I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

You can imagine the wide eyes of his disciples when Jesus said this. That's like Him saying that a person who has reached 300 pounds can never lose the weight.

IMPOSSIBLE

That's a word we don't want to discuss.

Many reach the point that something is impossible. To me, it was my compulsive overeating. To someone else, it could be debt, or drugs, or a runaway child.

IMPOSSIBLE.


Read on in that same chapter with me through verses 25 and 26.

When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished, and asked, "Who then can be saved?"
Jesus looked at them, and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.


I am powerless. I hate that idea. Yet, that is the position I had to reach to receive God's emotional healing.



"Every great accomplishment was once thought impossible."   ~Thomas Edison.
 

I write God's message of hope.

For weight loss.

For emotional healing.

For the impossible.


 

     When we want to reset a computer, we turn it off and back on again. Everything reverts to its original settings. Our mind works the same way. We find it impossible to keep on our food plan when our spiritual condition deteriorates. Closeness to God reveals our dependencies and self-defeating habits. Without His light shining on those things, we revert to our years of programming wrong information. "You’re worthless. I can’t get my mind off food. I deserve a pick-me-up." 


     We can’t afford to bypass our quiet time with our Savior. When we enter His gates of praise and His tabernacle of thanksgiving, He shines His truth on incorrect thinking. We eat what we should. Our day is productive, our mind, content. His truth “sets us free.”

Excerpt from Divine Dining




God always masters the impossible.

With Him, there is always hope.
