With God, literally, nothing is impossible. Most Christians agree with that statement, but do we really believe it?  In systematic theology, there seems to be a long list of what God can’t do, but isn’t that just a veiled way of saying there are things with God that are impossible?

The Devil thought, in his pride, that when Adam and Eve ate of the forbidden fruit, he had God over a barrel.  Either kill His son and his newly created wife, or let them go free.  If God judged man then the Devil, who was bound for the Lake of Fire anyway, lost nothing.  However, if God spared His children, God could not have judged Satan for doing the same thing, and lucifer gained everything.

The bright and shining one, the sum of all wisdom, thought he had God between a rock and a hard place.  Either way, Satan believed he would devestate God or escape judgement.  However, God’s never our of options and He chose a alternative the Devil never saw coming. God, in His wisdom and mercy, delayed man’s judgement until His son, Jesus Christ could die for our sins. Thus, God satisfied His need for justice while sparing all those who accepted him as their Lord and Savior.  When Jesus said, “It is finished” that not only opened the way for our redemption, but sealed Satan’s fate forever.
 

With God, never say never

 
When is it comes to Lord of creation, never say never. Impossible is just not in YHWH’s vocabulary. It’s never a question of whether or not something can be done, it’s only a matter of whether it is God’s will or not. As children of the Most High our perspective should match that of our Father, and impossible should be missing from our vocabulary too.  Yes, we are finite and yes we are, as of yet, limited beings that are bound by time and space.  However, our main question is not be whether it can or cannot be done, but whether it is, or is not God’s will.  In the final analysis, that is the only thing that matter to us.

In conclusion, like Alice, let us believe at least six impossible things before breakfast.  Our mindset, our world view, our perspective is, with God, all things are possible.  I believe this was Christ’s mindset and is why, whatever His Father wanted, whenever He wanted to do it, Christ simple did it. Likewise, let us believe whatever our Father says, believing all things are possible too!
