You Were Born for the Impossible

By: Bill Johnson

The reason God didn’t take you take you to be with Him when you were born again is
because you have the divine assignment to invade the impossible. The reality of the Christian
life is measured by the impact on the impossible.

 

Much of what we give God credit for can be done by the Kiwanis Club. I don’t mean God is
not involved; I’m just saying all it is doing is tapping into human talent to accomplish what
mankind can accomplish.

 

What satisfaction is there in human accomplishment? There is some, but it’s not really
lasting. It’s nothing like having cancer disappear. It’s nothing like the mother that lost the use
of one arm to an accident – lost three inches of bone. She couldn’t grasp, couldn’t raise her
arm; she couldn’t pick up her two year old because of this surgery. She had five surgeries in
four and a half years. There was nothing like watching a lady pray for her and watching God
add the three inches of bone, adding all movement, all feeling, everything! Then she goes to
pick up her two year old and her little girl says “No mommy, broken arm” because that’s all
she has heard her whole life. To then see her say to her little girl, “No, it’s ok now.”

 

All the buildings I could build, all the money I could raise seem suddenly insignificant in the
moment of seeing that little girl held by her mother. I’ll take that over a million buildings.
And that’s who you are! You were born into this family, the actual Spirit of the resurrected
Christ took up residence in us. He’s in us and He wants out!
