KILLS THE IMPOSSIBILITY BEFORE IT KILLS YOU
Bible Reading: 2 Kings 7:1-2, 17-20
“Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the LORD; Thus saith the LORD, Tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.” 2 Kings 7:1-2
“And the king appointed the lord on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trod upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spake when the king came down to him.
And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be tomorrow about this time in the gate of Samaria:
And that lord answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
And so it fell out unto him: for the people trod upon him in the gate, and he died.” 2 King 7:17-20
Good day beloved, we are in a world where many people including Christians are in bondage of impossibility. The major problem facing many people is not a problem of financial support, not a problem of insecurity or political instability as well as tribalism, languages, etc. but the problem is the spirit of impossibility that rules their minds and hearts.
Overcome your impossibility is our focus today, and I believe it is the prayer that everyone needs to overcome every barrier that has been hindered us to achieve our desire, goal, and purpose according to God’s master plan for our lives.
The man in our Bible reading is a man that acts and reacts impossible. The man that challenged the prophet of God is a popular person in the city. He is not a young man but an adult. He believes in impossibility and he cost him his life.
According to ALFRED Udobong, impossibility is a very big word in the ears of men of all ages and in all classes that only seek to reduce or stop our drive to pursue our dreams, visions, desires, and every word and promises of the Almighty God that we have heard despite our conviction of its truthfulness
Impossibility is a thought of mind and it is a destructive, thief, and killer of destiny, success, and greatness. Many are under the control of impossibility spirit, and it weakens strength to go further beyond the lines to where you can truly find real success. It frightens sincerity and destroys faith in trusting God to the very end.
Impossibility is one word that gives fueling fear to ride on in your hearts and take you on a backward slid despite the assurance in the word of God for an onward glory. It cages and tied you down so that you cannot move forward to achieve the goals ahead of you.
You will agree with me that it is the impossibility dwelling in you that hinders you to achieve your previous years' goals. It is the spirit of impossibility that stops you to proceed in the next step that could have resulted to become a hero. It is the spirit that does not allow you to confront the challenges you are facing. It is the impossible spirit that holds you in captivity and makes you nothing.
For instance, after Mary had faithfully and patiently listened to the angel of God deliver a message she never expected from God to her; before fear and uncertainty could overtake her thought and force her to tell the angel that such words were lies, how impossible it will be since with her senses, she could not imagine such can happen through her, the angel quickly added: “For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment” Luke 1:37.
How many Christians are still holding the words and promises of God within the power of their flawed imaginations? How you not among many that have declared their dreams, visions, and desires impossible because of their shallow knowledge, imagination, and understanding?
Beloved, there is no way you can truly figure out what, and how God will accomplish His words and promises in your lives. When Mary heard the assurance that God will show up though she saw and think impossibility, she immediately accepted: “Then Mary said, Behold, I am the handmaiden of the Lord; let it be done to me according to what you have said. And the angel left her” Luke 1:38.
That’s how you should act and reacts to every situation. Never accept any words of impossibility. Reject any forms of impossibility, and walk-in faith with God, doing things in FATH and war in faith. This should be on every step you take. James 2:14, 17-26, Hebrews 11:31, James 5:15, Hebrews 11:29.
“Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” James 2:17
“But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” Hebrews 11:6
Beloved kill the impossibility in you before it kills you!
