Have you seen the movie Pay it Forward? It’s a great movie and in it is a scene when a seventh grade Social Studies teacher played by Kevin Spacey writes an assignment for his class on the chalkboard, it reads:
“Think of an idea to change the world – and put it into ACTION!”
The teacher asks the class what words come to mind when they read this assignment.
Kids share their thoughts, "Crazy, Hard”
The teacher says how about "Possible."
He tells them it is possible and then asks, "The realm of possibility exists where in each of you?" "Here." (And he points to his head).
This is a wonderfully inspiring movie and if you haven’t seen it go check it out - but here is the part that is implied but the teacher neglects to say explicitly - and that is that the impossible is possible, if we put our faith in God.
Throughout scripture we see God doing the impossible, like with Moses and a burning bush that is never consumed (Exodus 3: 1-15), the Immaculate Conception (Luke 1:26ff), healing the blind (John 9:1-12) and raising people from the dead (John 11:38-44) Impossible things – made possible only through God.
Have you ever had a big dream? Something that you really wanted to do, but were afraid to try? God can take our hopes and dreams, along with a little elbow grease from us and turn it into a reality, if it be His will. For many of us that is the stumbling block. Questions like: Is this God's dream for my life? How do I know that this is what God wants me to do? What if God wants me to do something else and I am just missing it? The not knowing is enough to render us immobilized!
