For with God nothing will be impossible. —Luke 1:37

Gift cards are popular items for the Christmas season, yet a lot of people have unused gift cards lying around. In fact, a 2021 study revealed that the average person in the United States has about $116 in unspent gift cards.

 

The Bible says that God has “given to us exceedingly great and precious promises” (2 Peter 1:4 NKJV). Yet God’s promises are a little like Christmas gift cards. All too often, they go unclaimed.

 

There are more than 500 passages in the Old Testament pointing to the arrival of the Messiah. These passages prophesied how He would be born and where He would be born. They speak of His crucifixion, His resurrection, and more.

Just as surely as there are hundreds of promises in the Old Testament pertaining to the birth of Jesus, there are also many promises in the Bible pertaining to the return of Jesus. Jesus said that He would come again. God keeps his promises. 

 

So don’t hesitate to hang on to God’s promises. That’s what Mary did after the angel Gabriel appeared to her and said, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God” (Luke 1:35 NKJV).

 

Gabriel was telling Mary that she would be the mother of the Messiah. Her life was about to change in one of the most amazing ways imaginable. And she was responsive to what God wanted to do through her.

 

When Mary asked the legitimate question of how God’s plan in her life was going to happen, Gabriel responded, “For with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37 NKJV).

 

Maybe you’re currently facing what appears to be an insurmountable obstacle. You have a problem that’s so big you don’t know how it can ever be resolved. God is bigger than your problem. With God, nothing’s impossible.
