Faith to Do the Impossible

There was a time when people felt quite confident in saying that certain things were possible and others were impossible. But things are different now.

The last century has been a period of broken barriers and lifted limitations in the physical world. It almost seems that nothing is impossible anymore. Who would dare to say today that developments in science and technology will not work even greater miracles in speeding up, expanding, improving, simplifying, and generally making easier and pleasanter the various aspects of human existence? The seemingly impossible has been proved possible so often that the saying has become a commonplace: "The difficult we do at once; the impossible may take a little longer."

The accomplishment of the "impossible" is not confined to the twentieth century and to modern discoveries and technological developments. The Bible abounds in stories of unusual events occurring, and they were not always accepted without wonder and skepticism. Sarah, the wife of Abraham, laughed when it was announced that she would bear a son. She was convinced that this was impossible. But Abraham, who had laughed too, realized intuitively that nothing was too hard for God, and in due time the promised son, Isaac, was born contrary to the general expectation.
