Rhema Words: Unlikely? Inconceivable? Impossible!

Nehemiah started out as a cupbearer, a servant of the king.  He ended up an architect and contractor, rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem.

Gideon was, quite literally, a nobody.  He was the least in his family, which was the least in his clan.  He became a mighty warrior and judge over his people.

Rahab started out as a prostitute.  She ended up to be a great-grandmother of King David, an ancestor of the Messiah.

I started out as a 40-something stay at home mom and farmer’s wife in rural America who occasionally wrote in a blog.  I’m becoming a script writer, producer, director, editor and filmmaker.  Oh, and I’m learning to play the drums.

Unlikely?  Definitely.  Inconceivable?  Nearly.  Impossible?

Not with God.  Remember, this is the guy who parted the Red Sea.  Who defeated countless enemies without His warriors having to lift a finger.  The Being who created the Heavens and the Earth, who designed the duckbilled platypus.  (Well, okay, I’ll give you the platypus.)  

He LOVES to fly in the face of worldly wisdom.  His M.O. is often the craziest, most unlikely and inconceivable thing imaginable.  You’ve got to love a guy like that.   I think one of my favorite lines from the movie The Princess Bride sums up His opinion of us fencing Him in:  “’Inconceivable!’  ‘You keep on using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.’”

What is unlikely, inconceivable, impossible to imagine in your life?  It’s likely, conceivable, even possible that this very thing could bring you life.
