All Things Are Possible
It's Day 16 of 21 Days of Prayer! All Things are possible.
Think of the possibilities. 2020 has launched and like the captain of a rocket ship, you are in command. Go where you want to go. Do what you want to do. Become the person you want to be. But be warned, whether good or bad, you will give account for everything you've done.
In a biblical sense, Jesus gave us a similar picture. In Matthew 19:23-26, "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible."
THE ODDS MAY HAVE BEEN AGAINST YOU
But God has given you more time. You and I have been blessed with another year, twelve months, to correct mistakes, to forgive injustice, to begin new adventures and to literally turn what seemed impossible into the possible.
WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE
Mary McCloud Bethune once said, "Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service. Without it, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible."
When we align our priorities with God's priorities, He equips us to repair and refresh old stuff.
When we ask God to fill our days and brighten our nights, He shows us how to find and test new stuff.
When we give God control of our lives, He directs hearts to enjoy righteous pursuits that lead to harmonious experiences and satisfied souls.
GET "WITH GOD" ON THE MATTER
If you're dealing with some issue or a person that makes you feel like it is an impossible situation, this is good news for you. The Lord specializes in such things. In Matthew 17:20, Jesus said, "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."
That's right, your situation is not impossible! But the key is, you have to get "with God" on the matter. In the first part of verse 20 above, Jesus explained that the disciples couldn't cast out an evil spirit to heal a child because of their unbelief. You may be a Christian, going to Church and in a sense, right there in the room with Jesus, but the question is still ~ do you believe? If you do not believe every word of God's promises, you're not "with God" on the matter. Fix that first. Eliminate the shroud of impossibility. Then you'll be ready to launch into the pool of possibilities!
Now, Let's rehearse this Prayer Together...
Lord, each day I am challenged by something designed to make me doubt. But today I can hear You telling me that "with God" all things are possible and for that reason, I no longer have to doubt. In this moment, I declare that I have faith in God. I believe every promise You have spoken about my life. And when my mind and others say it can't be done, I will silence their ranting and listen for Your voice. I will rehearse Your words and remember that You are my source. You are my foundation. You are my rock, my forgiver, my healer, my God and in You I trust. In faith, I speak to the mountains of impossibility and command them to be removed. Without a doubt, I know that all things are possible with God, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

P.S.: If you don't know Jesus as your Lord and Savior and want to be born again, pray this prayer aloud:
Lord God, forgive me for my sins. Jesus, come into my heart. I make you, Jesus, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
