Text: Jeremiah 32: 27; 33:3

• All of us struggle, at different levels, with the problem of unbelief. Perhaps, like Abraham and Sarah, you’ve prayed for something for years, but God has not answered. Life is passing you by while you wait.
• You struggle with doubt as you often wonder whether He is hearing your prayers. You may have suffered some tragedy, such as the loss of a close loved one, and you wonder, “Where was God when this happened?”

• Maybe it’s a family problem that has dragged on for years. You wonder, “Why doesn’t God do something? Why doesn’t He answer?”

• There is hope and good news, men may have given up on you, doctors may have failed you, but GOD is stretching out his compassionate hand and is telling you “See, I will help you, I will heal you, I will make a way where there seems to be no way because, “……. the things which are impossible with men are possible with God” (Luke 18:27).

We shall discuss the topic under three sub-headings:
• Fearing Before the Impossible
• Faith that Sees the Invisible
• Faith that Attempts the Impossible
• Fearing Before the Impossible
• Facing the reality of this time, we are living in tough times. Times are tough spiritually. Times are tough economically. Times are tough for the church. Times are tough for the family. Times are tough on individuals. Times are tough for the nation. Jer 32:27.

• It is very natural to be fearful in the face of difficult situations and great problem, but believers must not allow the fear to take them away from God. Isa. 41:10
• We read about Jehoshaphat in his time of crises, he was afraid, but he turned to the Lord in prayer and confesses that he had no other way out. 2 Chronicles 20:1-4.
• The Lord uses the crisis in our lives to mould us, grow us and develop us.  Rom. 8:28-29. 1 Pet. 4:12-13
• He is The God of the Impossible, The God of all Flesh. He can take that situation you see as being so impossible and He can transform it into a time of blessing for you and glory for Him. Isa 41:10
• Faith that Sees the Invisible
• Your faith in God will make you to see the promised deliverance, healing, revival, restoration, blessings, etc, even before they actually come to manifestations. 1 John 5:5
• This was what Moses saw when he told the people that they will never see the Egyptians again and forever. Ex. 14:13
• Also Jehoshaphat was able to see the promised victory when the Lord told him that He will take over his battle, and he was at peace throughout until the promised victory came to manifestations. Matt. 28:18.
• He is still the God “who is able to exceeding, abundantly above all that we can ask or think,” Eph. 3:20.
• He is still the God Who “works all things after the counsel of His Own will,” Eph. 1:11. He is still God and that should comfort our hearts today.
• He may not answer them the way you want Him to all the time, but He will always answer them correctly and in a way that brings glory to His name. 1 John 5: 14 – 15
• Is it diseases, Our God is a great physician, God can cure all diseases, is it poverty, the gold, the silver, the diamond are His (Haggai 2: 8, Our God will restore all we have lost like Job in the bible (Job 42). Is it shame, pain, sorrow, hardship, our God is able to turn it all to Blessing, honour and glory.
• What is that problem that has taken you out of the way of God, Jeremiah 33: 3, Isaiah 65:24).
• Faith that Attempts the Impossible
• By our assurance in the power of God and His promises, we must be willing to take a step of faith to see the promised miracle come to manifestations. James 1:6
• We can see some scriptural examples where impossible situations became possibilities. Mark 10:46-52
• God appeared to Sarah when she was ninety years old and told her she was going to have a baby.”Is anything too hard for the LORD?..” Gen. 18:14aA few years later the Lord told Sarah’s husband, Abraham, to offer Isaac on the altar of sacrifice.
• Abraham obeyed without question. cf Gen. 22:1-12. Hebrews 11:
• When Joshua led the army of Israel to victory over the Amorites, darkness approached before his job was completed. Josh. 10:12-13
• Consider Jesus.- He enters Bethany where his friend Lazarus has been dead four days. The first thing he hears from both of the grieving sisters is, “Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.”. John 11:21
Have you settled in your heart the question of God’s ability?
• Sometimes our doubt centres on our own sinfulness of heart. Gal 3:22
• We do not see our prayers answered. John 3:18 Mark 11:24
• Temptation is another area in which you may doubt your Lord’s might. 1 Cor 10:13
• There are many areas which we could apply the question God asks in our text. Can he heal you of a terminal disease? Will he answer your prayers? Can he find you the right job? 1 Pet 1:21 Luke 8:43-48
• Yes, he can do all these things…He is the Lord, and nothing is too difficult for him. John 6:35

What is your impossible situation? -What is the most difficult thing in life you need God to accomplish for you? “Is it too difficult for you to trust in an Almighty God?” -The real weakness lies not in our Father but in our faith.
