Possibility is the “power of being or existing; the power of happening” and brings to mind the view of an endless horizon. Looking at the pristine landscape conjures the thought that all things are possible, I just need to reach out, step forward…move.
I appreciate that Paul shares “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me”1 though Paul was speaking of rejoicing in prosperity or humble circumstances, rejoicing in freedom or persecution, rejoicing in all situations is possible in Christ who gives us the grace, strength and wisdom in every situation we face.
When Jesus addressed possibility versus impossibility, He was answering the disciples’ questions about who could be saved. “And looking at them Jesus said to them, ‘With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”2
In sickness or in health, in humble circumstances or prosperity, in affliction or wellness, we find Christ is ready to save and deliver or to give grace and strength. In either situation, we know that He is always with us, and all things are possible.
For [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!] ~Hebrews 13:5 AMPC
