For with God nothing shall be impossible.” – Luke 1:37 KJV
THIS WEEK was a remarkable week in English football as four of its teams reached the finals of both of Europe’s top football competitions – the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League. What was more striking is the fact that after the first leg of matches, both Tottenham and Liverpool were long odds to get through to the finals.
Liverpool, for example, found themselves three goals down to Barcelona after the first leg (teams play matches over two legs) but in a stunning turnaround they beat the Spanish giants 4-0 to the amazement of the football world. And if that wasn’t enough, one night later – Tottenham scored three goals in the second-half to make it an all English final.
Lucas Moura – who scored a hat-trick for the Londoners – tweeted the following day that, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
The quote comes from the first chapter of Luke where an Angel of the Lord comes to Mary and tells her that the Holy Spirit will come upon her and she will give birth to a Son. Questioning the angel, she answered,”How can this be?” but he said, “Nothing, you see, is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37 MSG). In other words, don’t think possible but think the impossible! And that’s should be our mindset as believers because each of us have been given the measure of faith (the God Kind of faith as one preacher says) – the faith to believe for the impossible.
So this week stretch your faith to believe for what the world thinks is unfeasible because you know that if Liverpool and Tottenham can do it, God can ceertainly do it!
