Fulfillment of the Impossible

Blessed is she who believed,
for there will be a fulfillment of those things
which were told her from the Lord.” Luke 1:45

WOW! Mary's cousin, Elizabeth, who was also with child because of a miraculous pregnancy, makes a huge statement! Please allow me to give my own paraphrase:

"Blessed, happy, is she who believed, whose faith was set on the all good, loving, powerful God who does all things well; for all the impossible things that the Lord told her about being the mother of His Son, will actually come to pass ( because she has faith in Him)!"

The key to Mary seeing all these things come to pass, was that she believed!

Joyce Meyer's evening devotional last night said, in part:
"There is a gold mine of dreams, visions, abilities, and strength hidden in every life, but you have to dig to get to it. You must be willing to dig deep and go beyond how you feel or what is convenient. If you will dig down deep into the spirit, you will do greater things than anyone could ever imagine."

Its deep down in your spirit where you will 'hear' God. Its deep down in your spirit where you will find the faith to believe what He is saying to you. Its deep down in your spirit where you will find Him and everything He has put there for you to overcome your feelings of discouragement, weakness, depression, defeat. Its deep down in your spirit where you will find what it takes to endure even when things are not comfortable, easy or convenient. Its deep down in your spirit where you will see the dream and see it through to its fulfillment.
God is there, holding a myriad of 'Dreams', 'Impossible Possibilities' in one hand, and all the resources and strength for them to be fulfilled in the other.

People are filled with potential
often unrealized! --
Brian Housten, Hillsong Church

Let's dare to trust Him for greater things than we could ever dream or imagine!
