Matthew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, ” With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
We as humans tend to be arrogant in our control and our self-confidence. I, myself, am a firm believer in the fact that hard work brings good luck. I believe hard work beats talent. But….as a believer, I also KNOW that God is in control. It’s hard to separate our own disciplines and behaviors from what God provides. I lean on the side of if God gives us free will AND he is in control than we have to realize we are working for him, and we are to praise him no matter the outcome. We have to have faith that the path that unfolds is by his permission and by his blessing. We just continue to focus and praise him through the storms and through the good days.
The verse also really means that when we face ANYTHING, we need to submit and realize SINCE God is in control, we need to yield to Him and realize BECAUSE of Him EVERYTHING is possible. What an awesome God we serve. Do your part – pray and read the word.
