I saw a phrase yesterday.
“Be a possibilitarian!”
I like the sound of that word. Not just for the beautiful way that it rolls off the tongue. I like it because it sounds like adventure and miracles all wrapped up in one.
It’s a title that doesn’t require special training.
It’s a role that’s free for the taking, an equal opportunity “employer” to anyone interested.
It’s only prerequisites are an open mind and heart and a pinch of faith.
God is a POSSIBILITARIAN and He’s calling us to the same thing:
Matthew 19:26 – Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
There are plenty of things in me, in my life, that could look like impossibilities. Old habits too hard to break. Old patterns of thinking too imbedded to uproot. Old fears that defy movement with their death grip on my heart.
But if ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE with God, then I can look at these things through the lenses of a POSSIBILITARIAN. Literally, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE with Him.
If the desires of my heart match the wisdom, love and plan that His own heart holds for me and for His glory, then I will see answers to prayers that I never thought could be realities:
John 14:15 – “And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
In this process of healing and growth and change (the 90 day challenge), I have had the indescribable privilege of seeing God do the impossible. In my life, and in the lives of others. Miracles. Adventures in faith. Milestones of aha! moments. Corrected spiritual vision. The list goes on.
I couldn’t be more thrilled that God is not boxed in to just the scope of my own feeble imagination:
Ephesians 3:16-21 – I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Any idea that I can come up with on my own is magnified within the imagination of God. I can see good. He can see spectacular. I can hear music, while He hears a symphony. I can conceive of “maybe”. He dreams of “absolutely”.
I close my eyes and muse about what could be. He orchestrates what will be with His eyes wide open.
My God is the King of Possiblities.
The first POSSIBLITARIAN.
Genesis 1:3 – And God said …and there was….
Another day begins, another opportunity to join hands with Him and learn to become a POSSIBILITARIAN right along with Him.
Can you even imagine????
