The God of Impossible?

The God of Impossible?

The Daily Drive: Episode 29

Despite Sarah being ‘well beyond’ childbearing age. God's promise eventually came to fruition and Abraham and Sarah had a child named Isaac. An impossibility made possible by the power of God. also, when Abraham was called to sacrifice his only son, Abraham knew that even if he sacrificed Isaac, God would keep his promise and somehow raise him up again.

The author of Hebrews recounts the event as:

“By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, “In Isaac your seed shall be called,” concluding that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭11‬:‭17‬-‭19‬ ‭

Through all of this, God is known to Do the impossible, and Abraham learned to trust God more. And his faith was counted as righteousness.

Reflection Questions

  • God made a seemingly impossible promise to Abraham, what promises has God made to you that sometimes feel impossible?
  •  How can seeing these promises be fulfilled in scripture encourage you?

By the past impossiblea God has performed in my life throughout the years, it encourages me to know that God never changes and He is able today to perform the possible out of impossible.
