Matthew 19:26 “Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with
God everything is possible.”
In my youth, I remember playing basketball with my friends in the neighborhood. We would pick teams from the best player to the worst and play ball all day. We always had that one player though. This guy would keep the ball and try to score every shot. We used to call him the ‘ball hog’.
It was our term of words when we yelled, “Stop hoggin’ the ball! Pass it to somebody that’s open!” But
that player would continue to be the ‘superstar’ and eventually the team he played for would lose. Not just because of his selfishness, but also because that one player did not utilize his other teammates.
This is what happens in real life. God created us to be team players. He created us to play well with
others. But we like to take the situations we are in and ‘hog’ all decisions and actions for ourselves. We think we can win this game called ‘life’ without any help. Then that powerful player on the other team comes on the court. Let’s just call him, ‘Impossible’. And when we come up against him, we find that there is nothing we can do. Under our own power we begin to fold and eventually we want to give up this game because we realize there is nothing we can do.
This is where we need to become that ‘team player’ we were designed to be. When we reach that point in our lives when we know there is nothing physically, we can do, we need to call in our best player to take over. When we call God into the game, the whole game changes. There is nothing the ‘impossible player’ can do against God.
This is where God performs His miracles in our lives. This is where our testimonies of faith in God’s
existence in our lives take root in our souls. Not only do others begin to see Him in us, but they also
become aware and begin to feel His presence in them. Once we realize this as believers, that’s when we can observe our victorious, miracle story unfold.
May God continue to bless and keep you under His protection of peace in Jesus’ name.
