“How Great Thou Art!”

INTRODUCTION:

BASIC PREMISE … “With God … nothing is impossible!” - Do you believe that?

· SOMETIMES … seems like we face IMPOSSIBLE circumstances.

· SEEMS LIKE … all the odds are against us … NO HOPE.

· SEEMS LIKE … no light at end of tunnel.

It’s EASY to get DISCOURAGED … (last weeks sermon).

- BUT … My God is the “God of the impossible”.

- There’s nothing He can’t do!

SONG: “Got any rivers you think are uncrossable;

Got any mountains you can’t tunnel through?

God specializes in things thought impossible.

He does the things others cannot do.”

SO … HOW do you handle life’s IMPOSSIBLE SITUATIONS?

- ANSWER … You go to a great & mighty God!

SOMETIMES … our lives get into TANGLES.

LIKE … extension cord … water hose … rope … HAIR.

STORY “Have any of your childhood wishes ever come true?”

“Yea, when I was a child & my mother used to comb the tangles out of my hair, she would tug & pull. I wished I didn’t have any hair … AND … it came true!”

Let me share a few verses of Scripture.

1.- Jeremiah 32:17 – “Ah, Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You.”

What you & I call “impossible” … is NOTHING to God!

EX.:

· TAX FORMS … “Impossible” for me … to CPA … “Nothing!”

· CAR PROBLEMS … “Impossible” for me … to RICHARD … “Nothing!”

· TIE SHOE … to Grandson, “Impossible” … to ME … “Nothing!”

· TIE A TIE … to YOU, “Impossible” … to ME … “Nothing!”

2.- Jer. 32:27 – “ Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?”

God is asking you to SUBSTITUTE your IMPOSSIBILITIES … for the word “anything”.

GOD SAYS … “Fill in the blank … “Is _________ too hard for Me?”

- ANSWER: Of course not! He is GOD!

3.- Luke 1:37 – “For with God nothing will be impossible."

God said this in answer to Mary’s question about her being pregnant … AND … still being a virgin.

LISTEN to what Jesus said to the Rich Young Ruler:

4.- Luke 18:27 – “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."

THINK about something that SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE to you right now.

· Salvation of a loved one.

· A health problem.

· A family problem.

· A Job situation.

· A behavior problem.

· A sin problem.

· A habit.

This problem may SEEM IMPOSSIBLE for us to handle.

- AND … MAYBE IT IS! … BUT … God is the God of the IMPOSSIBLE!

DOES THIS MEAN … THAT … God will make all your problems DISAPPEAR?

- NO! BUT … it does mean that there’s no problem too big that God ISN’T ABLE to see you THROUGH.

- He may NOT TAKE IT AWAY … (though He has the POWER) … BUT … It will not overpower Him.

1 Samuel Ch. 17 – all turn

In Ch. 14 … the Philistines & Children of Israel met in battle.

- The Ch. of Israel WON … BUT, NOW … Philistines RETURN … w/ GOLIATH!

The Philistines want to “psyche out” Saul’s army.

- They can’t win the PHYSICAL war … SO … they wage a MENTAL war.

GOLIATH challenges Saul to send out his BEST MAN … to fight him 1-on-1.

NOW … that’s what Satan wants to do with YOU.

- He wants to ISOLATE you from the herd … (lions).

YOU SEE … you are in a battle … EVERY DAY.
