標  題:在不可能中仍然信實

經  節:耶和華觀看基甸,說:「你靠著你這能力去從米甸人手裡拯救以色列人,不是我差遣你去的嗎?」(士師記六章14節)

在基甸的心中,勝過米甸人是不可能的事。他的看法完全正確。米甸人與其聯軍的軍力,大大勝過軟弱的以色列人。然而,在神告訴基甸要迎戰米甸人時,勝利不再是遙不可及。

當耶穌命令祂自己那一小群跟隨者,要使萬民作耶穌的門徒(馬太福音廿八:19),當時的環境是可能的嗎?當然,耶穌說可行就必定可行!當耶穌告訴自己的門徒,要愛他們的敵人,祂的建議是否符合現實?當然,因為祂就是那位藉著他們達到與神和好的神(哥林多後書五:1920)。

你是否認為神的命令難以置信?你是否更改神的話語,好讓自己能夠合理地解釋它?不要把神的大能打折扣,我們靠著神,凡事都能做(腓立比書四:13)。當神指定了一個任務,這個任務不再是不可行,相反地,它是絕對可行。當神賜下一個看似不可能完成的任務,惟一攔阻你達成任務的,是你的不順服。當神開口時,你可能嚇得半死!祂會帶領你做些事,是靠你自己絕對做不到的。當你順服祂的時候,祂會一步一步地帶領你,直到得著勝利。你是如何回應那些看似不可能的任務?你是否把那些任務視為難以達成,於是將它們一筆勾消?還是你為了神的啟示,立即調整生活,並且觀看神如何因著你的順服,達到祂的目標?神要在你的生活行出不可能的事。祂對你惟一的要求是順服。


Faithful with the Impossible

Then the LORD turned to him and said, "Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?" (Judges 6:14)

In Gideon’s mind, victory over the Midianites was an impossibility, and he was absolutely right! The Midianites, along with their allies, overwhelmed the feeble Hebrews. Yet the moment God told Gideon to fight them, victory was no longer an impossibility!

When Jesus commanded His small group of followers to make disciples of all nations, was that possible_(Matt. 28:19)? Certainly, if Jesus said it was! When Jesus told His disciples to love their enemies, was He being realistic? Of course, because He was the One who would achieve reconciliation through them (2 Cor. 5:19–20).

Do you treat commands like these as implausible? Do you modify God’s word to find an interpretation that seems reasonable to you? Don’t discount what is possible with God (Phil. 4:13). When God gives an assignment, it is no longer an impossibility, but rather it is an absolute certainty. When God gives you a seemingly impossible task, the only thing preventing it from coming to pass is your disobedience. When God speaks, it can scare you to death! He will lead you to do things that are absolutely impossible in your own strength. But God will grant you victory, step by step, as you obey Him. How do you respond to assignments that seem impossible? Do you write them off as unattainable? Or do you immediately adjust your life to God’s revelation, watching with anticipation to see how He will accomplish His purposes through your obedience? God wants to do the impossible through your life. All He requires is your obedience.
