Today’s 333 Devotional: “Our Inabilities Are God’s Possibilities”
When God made His promise to Abraham, “No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I have made you a father of many nations” (Genesis 17:5), Abraham didn’t have the son promised by God through Sarah. Further, he was ninety-nine years old, and Sarah was about ninety, both well past their childbearing years.
But what is impossible to us is possible with God. This was the Apostle Paul’s pointed out as he continues his argument of faith alone through Abraham’s life.
“As it is written: ‘I have made you a father of many nations.’ He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed, the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.” (Romans 4:17)
Abraham’s faith was in God alone. Abraham’s faith was in the all-powerful God who has the power to breathe life where no life exists. Abraham believed that God could give life, make alive, vitalize, revive, and resurrect the dead. His faith was in the Lord who can create something where nothing exists.
But Abraham’s faith was not just in the promises, but also in the One who is able to keep His promises.
God is not inhibited by what seems impossible or dead to us. God is not limited by our limitations or our inabilities. What God has promised only He can fulfill and will fulfill because He is God.
When Mary questioned how she could possibly give birth when she never had sex with a man, the angel said, “Nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)
So, let’s put our faith in God and not in what circumstances may dictate, or what we think we can do, because our inabilities are God’s possibilities, and God is a promise keeping God even when such promises seem impossible.
This was Paul’s main argument saying, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13)
