I was working underneath a car when it shifted and fell on me. As I lay there unable to breath there was frantic effort to find a jack and lift it off. I could see that it wasn’t going to be quick so I got my breath and yelled: “come, lift it off of me.” By then the whole family was gathered so my four children, ages 4-9, and several adults picked the car up and I scooted out. I could hear them praying as they lifted and then they prayed for me. I escaped without serious injury and healed quickly. The urgency of the situation brought forth immediate fervent prayer for God’s help, and He did help us.
In John 6:7 we read; Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may have a little.”
Phillip was correct in his reasoning but fell short in his understanding. He was simply answering the question Jesus posed without seeing beyond the impossibility of the task. Many of us face the impossible. We don’t have enough to pay the bills, to feed the family, to continue a business or stay committed in a relationship. But it is our understanding that is deficient not our resources.
With God all things are possible. When we apply that to our impossibilities we will find that God will turn the tables on unsolvable situations and provide in abundance. God is not limited by income or resources, He can transform water to wine, sickness to health and a little into an abundance. "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible." Mat. 19:26 “For with God nothing will be impossible." Luke 1:37
