We Can’t Do Impossible Things with Our Might (Noon)
Isaiah 2:22 Sever yourselves from such a man, Whose breath is in his nostrils; For of what account is he?
Interpreting dreams is not a difficult thing to do. But to guess someone’s dream and interpret its meaning are impossible for humans. This is an absurd job, and anyone who orders must have lost his mind. Perhaps this is what the Chaldeans were thinking when King Nebuchadnezzar asked them to tell his dream and what it meant (Daniel 2: 5-11). We too must have had the same thoughts as them. How can we know what someone is dreaming of? Even though they were the smartest and most respected elect at that time, still King Nebuchadnezzar’s requests were too heavy and beyond their capacity. They couldn’t answer.
In this life, sometimes we can also experience what the Chaldeans experienced. We face challenges that are humanly impossible to solve. Almost a full year in 2020 we were hit by the pandemic. Some people are afraid to expect too much for 2021. Some begin to lower their targets or cut their vision. Many people do not dare to think big anymore, because they feel that it is impossible to achieve it in recent conditions. Yes, if we only rely on human abilities, there are impossible things for us to do. But what we need to catch and remember carefully, this year is the year of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit who is limitless is at work in a mighty way.
The Holy Spirit will be glad to help us if we ask Him. Right now, if we feel that we are facing an impossibility, remember that we have the limitless Holy Spirit. We can’t, but the Holy Spirit is more than capable. Put Him first in our lives and don’t limit His power with our limited thoughts. Then we will see how the Holy Spirit will take over and make the impossible possible. Jesus bless you.
If we rely only on HUMAN ABILITIES, many things are IMPOSSIBLE for us.
1. What are things you do with your own might?
2. Are the results what you expected?
3. What impossibilities are you facing right now? Have you relied on the Holy Spirit to solve it?
“Jesus, forgive us if we are too confident and only rely on our own strength. Now we realize that we are very limited. Only with the power of the Holy Spirit will we be able to break through all impossibilities. Thank you, Lord, for sending us the Holy Spirit. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
