Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life

From impossible to possible to open…

Shalom!

I am back! Again! I spent last week in the hospital and yesterday we had to replace our laptop so I spent the day getting that set up, prayerfully I got it right.

In the movie “The Bishop’s Wife” starring Cary Grant and David Niven is a scene where the Bishop (David Niven) asks Dudley the Angel (Cary Grant) to prove that he’s an angel by making a desk float around the room. Dudley refuses then turns around walks up to the locked office door turns the doorknob and walks out and shuts the door behind him. Suddenly the Bishop with key in hand realizes what just happened walks up to the door and turns the doorknob only to find it still locked. Shocked the Bishop drops in a nearby chair and stares into the room in disbelief.

Once you get past the humor of the scene a great spiritual truth emerges – locked doors are no match for the Divine – nor are locked hearts – nor is the impossible, impossible to God! There are those who are or will read (with your help) this verse facing the impossible. Perhaps it’s financial, perhaps it’s a broken relationship, perhaps it’s a health issue, perhaps it’s the loss of a loved one, perhaps it’s the burden of caring for a loved one, or perhaps one a many other impossible circumstances.

Doors locked!

Key thrown away!

No hope!

No light!

Only despair!

The impossible, impossible???

Not on your life! Not as long as Jesus is Savior anyway! Take an in depth look at these two gems and then believe that with Jesus the impossible IS possible!

“Jesus said again, “Truly I tell you, I am the gate for the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the gate. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will come in and go out and find pasture.” (John 10:7–9)

“After they had severely flogged them, they threw them in jail, ordering the jailer to guard them carefully. Receiving such an order, he put them into the inner prison and secured their feet in the stocks. About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the jail were shaken, and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains came loose.” (Acts 16:23–26)

One last scripture that dot’s the I, crosses the T, and puts an exclamation point at the end! ““Write to the angel of the church in Philadelphia: Thus says the Holy One, the true one, the one who has the key of David, who opens and no one will close, and who closes and no one opens:” (Revelation 3:7) Not a member of the church in Philadelphia? Don’t worry Jesus is the Ultimate Doorman he’ll always unlock and open a door for you!

“The sacrifice pleasing to God is a broken spirit. You will not despise

a broken and humbled heart, God.” (Psalm 51:17)

Grace and PEACE,

Gary
