Think about the goals and plans we’re currently engaged in. Are there any impossible items on the list? Is there anything beyond your reach? If not, maybe it's time to aim a little higher. Jesus said, "With God, all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26). This biblical principle can — and should — be the driving force behind our ministry efforts at Olive Place. It's not enough to play it safe, reaching only for goals within our grasp. We should attempt things so great for the glory of God that unless He intervenes, we will certainly fail.

It is important to remember what this promise doesn’t and does imply.
It doesn't suggest that all things are easy. Accomplishing the impossible typically takes extended effort. Also, it doesn't infer that all things are immediate. Reaching worthwhile goals requires a long-term investment of time. Finally, it doesn't denote that all things will be painless. Personal sacrifice is part of the process.
If you’re willing to step out in faith, even though it may not be easy, immediate, or painless, by being bold enough to trust God to do the impossible, the reward will always be greater than the investment.   As Paul said...”Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)
Check the list one more time. Is there any impossible thing in the works?
