Expecting the Impossible

Matthew 19:26

"But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible." (Mat 19:26)

"And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible." (Mark 10:27)

"For with God nothing shall be impossible." (Luke 1:37)

"And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:27)

From these verses we should get the fact that nothing is impossible with God. He is an almighty and sovereign God. I would certainly not wish to attempt to take away anything concerning our understanding of Him. However, the title for the message this morning is this: Do not expect the impossible! Now, let me explain what I mean.

God, the Creator of universe, is a God of law and order. He created this universe with certain laws which govern it. Therefore, we should not expect things to be contrary to His natural law.


God is a God of law and order. His Word declares that in spiritual realm, laws are just as fixed as in physical. Spiritual laws revealed for man to know, comply with in order to receive blessings.

This is not a matter of what God can do! That has already been established. Nothing is impossible with God.

So once again, the message is this: Do not expect the impossible.

I. A Sinner often Expects the Impossible.

II. Christians Expect the Impossible when it comes to the Local Church.

III. Individuals Often Expect the Impossible:

Are we expecting the impossible today? If you are without Christ and expect to go to heaven any other way than by the crossÖit is impossible. Come to Jesus today!

Christian, if you are expecting Godís blessings on your life without living in accordance to His Word, then you are expecting the impossible!

Church members, if you are expecting this church to grow without becoming an active part of this ministry, then you are expecting the impossible!
