The impossible is God’s opportunity

By: Gabriela Yareliz

Some inspiration for the week. God is constantly asking us to try and see that He is good. Let us always look back at the many blessings and see His blessings.

I was inspired by Homecoming Weekend at Sligo Seventh-day Adventist Church at the Washington Adventist University. Our sermon revolved around this message:
(What God gives to us)
“Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside
!” –Great is Thy Faithfulness hymn

For those of you who like instrumental or classical music, this is a treat:

“22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”
25 The Lord is good to those who wait for Him,
To the soul who seeks Him.

26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly
For the salvation of the Lord.”
Lamentations 3: 22-26

“It Ain’t Over”

I know the odds look stacked against you
And it seems there’s no way out
I know the issue seems unchangeable
And that there’s no reason to shout
But the impossible is God’s chance
To work a miracle, a miracle
So just know

It ain’t over until God says it’s over
It ain’t over until God says it’s done
It ain’t over until God says it’s over
Keep fighting until your victory is won

He never said it would be easy
But you’re a winner in the end
Jesus defeated all your enemies
Way before the fight began
But the impossible is God’s chance
To work a miracle, a miracle
So just know

It ain’t over until God says it’s over
It ain’t over until God says it’s done
It ain’t over until God says it’s over
Keep fighting until your victory is won

When people say you can’t, remember
(He can, He will)
When you don’t know what you’re gonna do,
Please remember
(He has the master plan)
He will free you from your sin
And give you peace within
So you better hold your head up high
You’re gonna win
(You’re gonna win)

It ain’t over until God says it’s over
It ain’t over until God says it’s done
It ain’t over until God says it’s over
Keep fighting until your victory is won

Keep fighting, keep praying, keep fasting
It ain’t over, no
Keep pressing, progressing, keep moving
It ain’t over, no
Keep reading, interceding, keep believing
It ain’t over, no
Keep trusting, keep trying, keep travailing
It ain’t over, no
Keep living, keep giving, keep going
It ain’t over, no
Keep fighting until your victory is won

Know that what seems impossible is God’s opportunity to show off. Keep moving forward because God is good.

Continually, He shows us that He is in control; He cares; He orchestrates; He provides; He has a purpose.

1 Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful is He that calls you, who also will do it.”
