One thing I know about God and I often mention is that He is the God of the impossible. He can do all things and He can change anything and everything. I am developing my faith in that truth and I am enjoying the journey. I have my opportunities to see God doing the impossible in my life and I have many opportunities to succumb to doubt and live in fear. God is bigger than doubt and fear and He is teaching me how to conquer them and how to turn those negative opportunities into great occasions when I can see His glory manifested. The God of the impossible can’t be stopped. My God can’t be stopped. My mind puts up walls at times but my faith is getting stronger and it tears down the walls that try to separate me from the God of the impossible. When I read my Bible and I go over accounts of God’s mercy and grace and accounts of His miracles, I am in awe. The God of the Bible is the same God that is in me and that lives with me today. God lives with me. That is how I see it and that is how I live my life. I have to let Him be completely in control and impress my life with His power to do the impossible. I have ways to go but I thank God that I am on my way. I remember a time when I was in a pinch and I didn’t know what to do. Everything became very dark very quickly and I couldn’t see the sun so to speak. I couldn’t see the Son. I needed help. I needed comfort. It was one of those impossible situations and I had no idea how I was going to get out of it. Then the Lord said He would turn it around. He said to my heart, “Do not worry. I’ve got this. I am going to turn your situation around.”
My first reaction was that I was daydreaming and I was hearing what I wanted to hear. However, those words were etched into my heart and I couldn’t get away from them. The Holy Spirit, our great counselor, has a way of speaking hope and encouragement into our hearts and if we take Him seriously, He seriously does what He says He will do. “Do not worry,” He said. Isn’t it one of the most beautiful things you can hear when you are panicking? It helps me tremendously. If the God of the universe tells me not to worry, I better not worry because He is in charge and He can do all things. The One who parted the seas and changed water into wine can definitely change my trial into triumph. I spent some time in prayer. I spent some time meditating on His words so I could get the fullness of what He was implying. He was implying that even though things didn’t look good, there was no reason to worry because He will make things good again. Not only can He improve our situations but He can make them even better. I was all ears. I was ready to pay attention to His directions and so I thanked Him for taking care of my circumstances.
God did turn it around. He came out of nowhere with a blessing out of this world. At least that is how it felt. I had not expected Him to rescue me the way He did but He took care of me and He replaced my fear with peace. He covered me with His love and He gave me strength. When things are rough, we lose strength, energy and drive. God turned my situation around and He gave me more than enough. My budget had been tight but I had God and I had faith and He provided amazingly. This was a long time ago but I will never forget how He came through for me. He always knows what to do and how to blow my mind. If you are going through financial difficulties, if you are in a pinch, if you don’t know what to do anymore, pray to the God who can turn it around. He will do it. He will change things for you. Keep on praying. Don’t lose hope! Something great will happen. God will surprise you and give you a blessing that will outweigh the pain that I have been through. He is going to turn your mourning into dancing and He will clothe you with gladness. The Lord is smiling at you now. He is not worried about your situation. He knows how to handle it and what to do to make you be at peace again. Rejoice! Peace is coming and joy is going to come bursting in. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will always love you!
