Receiving the Impossible

Up-Dated - Friday, December 06, 2013

Mt 14:24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.

25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.

27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.

28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.

30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.


Ask for the impossible in a precise and definite manner
You have not because you ask not.
If that is you Lord call me to come.  When He calls, go.


Hold out for the impossible, don’t give in to conditions
“This is not a good time.”
The time will never be right for an impossible situation.  If it looked like the right time, it would not appear to be impossible.
It will not work to tell the Lord to call you when the weather is better.


The impossible is always forward, give up Backward Plans
Do not make Plan B
Plan B is not part of Plan A and Plan A is the impossible vision we perceived
Make no provision to be caught if you sink.  If the plan is what the Lord wants, He wants you in it.


The impossible is in an impossible place, step out of the boat
Take the step out of safety into the storm.
Make the move.
Go after the impossible.
