Luke 1:37

For nothing will be impossible with God.


Devotion by Julia Shiver

What a bold statement!  Stated in the positive it reads “Everything is possible with God.”  Does that mean all my wishes and prayers will be answered?  Absolutely not!

This has been a long, difficult year for me, as it has for many of us.  And God has certainly not answered my prayers the way I thought they should be answered!  I started losing the sight in one eye earlier in the year.  God did not reach down and immediately repair my sight.  But God led me to doctors and new medications that have restored my sight.  As well as to groups who help pay for my treatments.  Is that a miracle?  Absolutely!

I offer up prayers to God every day.  Will I get my every prayer answered the way I want, in the timing I want?  No.  Does God hear my every prayer and desire? Yes.  And all my faith rests in that knowledge.



Loving God, thank you for hearing our prayers, whether spoken aloud, or cried deeply from our inmost being.  We have faith that you will answer our prayers in Your time and in Your way.  Amen.
