The God of Possibilities

When I saw this tomato plant growing on the side of my house in the gravel path, it stirred up all kinds of spiritual truth possibilities. But the one that came to mind first was that with God, all things are possible.

Nothing Is Impossible with God

Have you ever noticed that weeds have no trouble breaking through anything? But a tomato plant? In rocks? And one I didn’t plant. I love the visual. But even more, I love the truth. Nothing is impossible with God. He is a God of possibilities. What are you trusting Him for? In your life? Your marriage? Your vocation? Your home?

    What I see when I look at this picture is that when God plants a small seed, something will always grow. There is nothing that will stop it, not gravel, weeds or anything can keep it under ground. With the human heart, it is much the same. When God plants the seed of faith in our hearts, he grows our faith and we are able to believe in both what is possible, and what may only be possible with his help. God’s seeds always have a purpose and his seeds vary within each individual life.

    This picture actually reminds me of a couple different things. First it reminds me of Phi 4:13: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” because without Christ this plant would not have survived the gravel around it and it reminds me that no matter what our circumstances are that surround us, as long as we give them to God, it will give us deep roots in God’s love. And the other is also in Eph 4:19: “For my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in Christ Jesus.” This plant had to have what it needed to be able to grow in this type of surroundings. God will always give us what we need, if we but only ask. He will supply everything that we need to do what he asks.

    Matt 13:5
    some seed fell on rocky places where it did not have much soil
    it sprung up quickly because the soil was shallow

    I like the fact that the whole “plant growing in the rocks” design was God’s idea, no one else intentionally planted it there. He has a plan for our lives too, and we can trust Him with it. It reminds me of Matthew 6:25-34.

    This reminds me of the desert and how it is parched and dry but yet flowers bloom! I believe the order of God is one that if the soil is ripe the fruit will be produced.

    I Want To Give Title To The Plant Growing Out Of Different Stones As:” Growing Through Seasons Of Life”. Spirit Filled Christians Are To Shine In Seasons And Out Of Seasons In Any Situation They May Find Themselves.To Follow In Christ’s Steps. True Christians Should Observe What Goes On Around Them So As To Be Relevant And Shine For Christ. Thank You Rebecca Barlow Jordan For What Your Observation Brought Up.

    All you need is faith as small as a mustard seed….nothing is impossible. Matt 17:20. If you are standing for marriage restoration, a new job, healing of illness or any trial that you are experiencing, please don’t give up. Even on the hardest days, God is for us and not against us. Be patient and wait for His perfect timing.
