Pre-dawn Ponderings

Pre-dawn Ponderings

science

Seven o’clock AM classes are not my favorite. Especially when the subject is science, we are in an unlit room, and the teacher is showing a video produced in the 1980s. However, one statement at the end of the video struck me. As Dr. Steven Austin was concluding his lecture on Mount St. Helens, he declared “God specializes in doing things that I think are impossible.”

What do I think is impossible? I think it is impossible for a Supernatural Being to speak everything I see into existence. But I believe it happened. I think it is impossible for it to rain long enough to cover the entire world. But I believe it happened. I think it is impossible for the blind to see, the lame to walk, and the deaf to hear. But I know it has happened. I think it is impossible for a human to be raised from the dead. But I believe it happened many times. I think it is impossible for a virgin to conceive and have a child. But I believe that Jesus was born of the virgin Mary. I believe that Jesus died, was buried, and rose again three days later. I believe that He will return in the future. He will reign forever.

Every day, something happens in my life that leaves me spinning.  I think it is impossible for me to finish all this school work in one semester.  I think it is impossible to know what I should major in.  I think it is impossible to defeat some sins in my life.   “How can I do this?” “Why is this happening to me?”  “How is this situation going to work out?”

The truth is, I don’t know how it will work out, but I do know that God has never failed.  He won’t fail now.

What impossible situation in your life is God going to make possible?
