Called to the Impossible

As one reads the Bible, it seems that God has always called people to great tasks that always seem impossible. Take Abraham for example, God called him out of his country and from amongst his kin to a land he did not know. Gen 12:1 says "Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred and from thy father's house unto a land that I will show you". Notice that God did not even tell him where he was going, but only that He was taking Abraham somewhere and when he gets there, he will let him know.

Then God chooses Joseph as the person he would use to preserve the life of the Patriarchs during a great famine, but allows him to go through slavery and jail before he gets to position he was chosen for. Moses was also called to lead God's people out of Egypt into the Promised Land, a task that proved to be one of the hardest jobs of all time. When the people came out of Egypt, they had to overcome Amalek, Jericho and a host of other nations before they could go in and possess the land that God had for them.

As a home schooling mom, do you sometimes feel that you have been called to an impossible task? If so, you are not alone, but you do not have to despair because the Lord who has called you to this task has already equipped you with all you need to do a great job. Eph.1:3 says "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ" also 2nd.Pet.1:3 tells us "....his divine power hath given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness........"

Beloved, He has promised never to leave you nor forsake you. So if you feel overwhelmed or feel like you have been called to the impossible, do not be discouraged, be of good cheer. As long as you keep your eyes and focus on him and not on the waves around you, trust me, you will be able to walk on water just like He did, because "Faithful is he that has called you who also will do it" IThess.5:24.

God bless You,
