Anything is possible with God

“Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for
someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

Matthew 19:24

With God all things are Possible

Have you ever heard this verse?  

All the time right.  Anytime you start to think about money this verse comes up. 

So many times we forget to read the next verses that follow this one.  

‘Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.” When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?” Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. ‘  Matthew 19:23-26

What is Jesus saying here?

To me, he is saying that no person can buy their way into heaven.  There is nothing that money can do to get you into the good Lord’s kingdom.

Also that neither is possible unless you have God.  

Can you imagine a camel going through the eye of a needle?  Can you imagine someone who was blind from birth being able to see?  Can you imagine creating the heavens and earth?  Can you imagine serving God for eternity, never losing your temper again, never getting angry?

I can.  It’s all because I know that God does everything for a reason.  He knows what I need before I ever ask for it.  I trust that he is there for me with every step that I take.  Even when I’m scared to death to take that step.

You see God can make anything happen.  

If you have God in your heart there is no reason why you can’t succeed at everything you do.  

The other thing that I want to bring up here is that these verses it doesn’t associate money or financial wealth with richness.  

Rich could be rich in health, or rich in love, or rich in-land, or rich in family.  Rich doesn’t have to be $$$. 

Tony Robbins says, “Any who says money can’t buy happiness has never given enough away!”

The truth is that a camel could never fit through the eye of a needle, and a rich person struggles to get into heaven.  

BUT……

Both are completely possible with God!

The next time someone tells you that you don’t want to be rich because of this verse, look them straight in the eye and tell them, “All things are possible with God!

Prayer

Lord, we come to you today knowing that we are RICH.  We are RICH in our health, RICH in our relationships, RICH in love, RICH in $$, RICH in faith.  And we are not ashamed of our richness.  We know that all things are possible as long as we have you in our life.  God, we also know that if we ask, you will give us anything that we need, and we need you.  Today we want to take a few moments to thank you for all of our riches, thank you for everything that you have blessed us with.  All of our RICHES!  We pray that you help us to love others as we love you.  Thank you

Amen
