"Through this encounter, Gabriel introduced Mary and each of us to the endless possibilities God holds within His hand."
ALL Things Possible by Evelyn Tinsley Scripture: "For with God nothing shall be impossible." Luke 1:31
I have to give myself permission to consider the possibilities. Can something once shrugged off as impossible, become a reality? Now, name it. Describe that hope, that dream, or that vision. Speak it into life. Not because your words alone hold some mystical force but simply speak it because of the power He possesses!!
Let's speak context. Luke 1:37 are the words of the angel Gabriel who was sent to the virgin, Mary, the highly favored one. He appeared to Mary to tell her about the baby she would have. In all creation, prior to this moment, every child was conceived from a man and woman. But Mary, was an exception, she was with child of the Holy Spirit. Her cousin, Elizabeth, on the otherhand, had been barren but then conceived with her husband. Elizabeth's fertility challenges had slipped into the realm of the impossible. Not because it was impossible but because it had become accepted as such. Gabriel declared "For with God nothing shall be impossible." revealing something about Mary's creator that she had not known.
Through this encounter, Gabriel introduced Mary and each of us to the endless possibilities God holds within His hand. But even more amazing, our Heavenly Father is willing to share the glory of His power with his beloved. In His glory, we can witness the impossible become reality just as Mary did.
