Ask me, and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come. Jeremiah 33:3 NLT
Sunday night, my soul felt restless. I felt this worry, concern, and fear in my heart, as though something unforeseeable was about to happen. I spent time with Jesus, but I didn’t sit down and talk with Him about how I felt.
Then, as I was getting ready to go to bed, the Holy Spirit prompted me to play the song “Famous For (I Believe)” by Tauren Wells and Jenn Johnson. I started to cry as I heard the song and started speaking in the Spirit. I had no idea why I was crying or what the Holy Spirit was saying.
My Spirit cried out to Him as soon as I heard these words:
“There is no fear ’cause I believe. There is no doubt ’cause I have seen Your faithfulness, my fortress Over and over. I have a hope found in Your name. I have a strength found in Your grace Your faithfulness, my fortress Over and over. “(Butler, Nordhoff, Sapp, Slifer & Wells. 2020)
But, as I continued listening to the song, I felt something powerful in my heart and soul. I felt as if I was standing next to Jesus.
“Make way through the waters, walk me through the fire. Do what you are famous for. What You are famous for. Shut the mouths of lions. Bring dry bones to life and do what You are famous for. I believe in You, God…” (Butler et al., 2020)
At that moment, I understood that someone else needed to believe that Jesus was the God of the impossible. I started to pray, asking the Lord to reveal Himself to that person. He is the God of the impossible. The same God who brought me back to Him and never gives up on any of us, no matter what we do.
Whoever needs to hear this message needs to know that He is the God of the Impossible. The God who will pursue you and will leave the ninety-nine to go after you. Why? Because that’s who He is. He loves you and me and will never give up on you. I know this to be true because He did it for me.
Friend, when your heart is breaking, and you feel lost, alone, and unsure of what to do, remember that you have Jesus. The God who became flesh and took your place on the cross to save you. Nothing is impossible for Him. Trust Him and wait. He will exceed your expectations. Although you may not get an answer immediately, rest assured that God never lies and always keeps His promises. Call out to Him, and He will listen.
Father, thank You for touching my heart tonight and letting me know that You are always near and our great Shepherd, always watching over us. Father, I pray for whoever is going through a difficult time tonight. Show Yourself to this sheep as You did to me. Let Your sheep know how much You love them. No matter what storm they encounter, You are there with them. You are the God of the impossible—who keeps His promises and never lets us go. In Jesus’ name, I praise your name, amen!
