“This Book of the Law shall not depart from
your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to
do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way
prosperous, and then you will have good success.  
I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be
dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:8-9


The couch sank beneath the weight of burden’s too great. My
eyes bore holes into the carpet. The only thing keeping this body upright was in
knowing that people were counting on me to follow through on a project that
felt impossible to complete.
Too much. Too hard. Too many things to do. Nope. Wasn’t
I turned on my iPad and opened my First 5 App for my quiet
The picture that emerged stole my breath; it’s words brought
a flood of tears to my eyes.
“OUR GOD is the God of the IMPOSSIBLE.”
And the title of the devotion for the day?


Did I just read that correctly? I blinked back the tears. You
know as well as I do this was no accident. God was speaking and I chose to
“In the midst of the battle, Joshua asked God to intervene
and do the impossible…the inconceivable.”
My eyes read that sentence again and again. I knew God was asking me
to entrust Him with this task.
I continued to read about Joshua and how he conquered in
battle because he chose to trust God. He also prayed one of the most God-sized
prayers you’ll ever read:
“Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the
valley of Aijalon” (Joshua 10:12). God not only heard Joshua’s prayer, He
answered it.

Our God―the God of the impossible.

“Scripture says of God: “Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the
earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too
hard for you”
(Jeremiah 32:17).

Prayer is a powerful privilege because it’s the arena where our faith
intersects with God’s abilities. We pray in the natural, trusting God for the
supernatural. We pray standing on what we believe about God, not simply on
facts we know about God. This believing, this trusting, comes when our head
knowledge travels to our heart and moves us to believe in God as our Creator
and our Father who knows us and loves us deeply.

It’s believing so strongly in who God says He is that we will commit our
lives to Him and believe Him for even the impossible.”  ~Wendy Blight¹

I closed my eyes and prayed for God to do the impossible that day. I prayed
the whole armor of God to protect me and to keep me safe from the enemy’s
attacks. One of the pieces of armor is “having shod your feet
with the preparation of the gospel of peace” (Ephesians 6:15).  After praying for God to do this impossible
task for me, and praying for protection,  I felt a peace I have not felt in years. I
spent the rest of the day, and the next, feeling everyone’s prayers for me and
resting in this peace as I finished the task I once thought impossible.

God truly is the God
of the impossible. Jesus is truly The Prince of Peace. The Holy Spirit truly is
God’s Comfort and Presence.
