    “You can’t do it. It’s impossible.” Those are words no guy wants to hear. A statement like this usually results in a rebellion of sorts: “You wanna bet?” We immediately begin to formulate ways the impossible can become possible — or we’ll die trying.

    Most women don’t understand this mindset. Men know if we just put our minds to something, we can do anything — from fixing a leaky pipe to flying to the moon and back. And we have! Yet we sometimes fail in trying to do the impossible.

    Jesus discussed an impossible situation with his disciples. A wealthy young man had approached him, eager with the desire to know how to gain eternal life. When Jesus told him to give up his wealth, the young man drifted away. It was then that Jesus came out with the statement, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24). In other words, it was impossible.

    When the disciples wondered who could possibly be saved, Jesus provided the assurance in the verse above. Only God saves. We couldn’t possibly save ourselves. And there are situations in our lives for which we need the help of the God who can do the impossible.
    Got an impossible situation you’re still trying to accomplish on your own? Do yourself a favor — trust God to really do the impossible.

    God, here is the impossible situation in my life . . .

    I have thought about that verse often. Compared to many in the world most of us probably could be classified as rich. When I get to feeling sorry for myself when I can't afford something, I try to remember that.
