What Does Luke 1:37 Mean?

Nothing is impossible with respect to any of God's promises."

Luke 1:37(ISV)

Verse Thoughts

This is the beautiful passage that announced to Mary the conception and birth of the lovely Lord Jesus, Who is Messiah of Israel; Saviour of the world; Kinsman Redeemer of humanity and Son of the sovereign God, Who is the highest authority in the universe. The Lord promised that the Seed of the woman would crush the serpent’s head, and nothing can change this promise.

God promised Abraham an earthly inheritance, Whose Builder and Maker is God, and this can never be altered for nothing is impossible with God. God promised David an eternal throne and everlasting kingdom, and nothing can change this promise, for what is impossible with man is possible with God. And this truth is equally true for you as it is for me - nothing is impossible with respect to any of God's promise – and the lovely Lord Jesus is the fulfilment of all that God’s has promised - for all things are in Him and of Him and by Him and for Him.

God is the power behind every one of His promises and God is the truth behind all of His word. God is the omniscience behind all of His counsel and He is the supernatural mind behind all of His plans. No promise from God will ever fail of its fulfilment for every directive that proceeds from the mind of the Almighty must reach its ultimate completion, for NOTHING is impossible with respect to any of God's promises.

This truth is fully consistent with the perfect nature of God’s character and totally compatible with His eternal perfection. If God has promised, nothing will stand in the way of its final fulfilment.

It is unbelief that questions the Word of God, and doubt that casts a shadow over the veracity of God’s promises, for they are all yes and amen in Christ. Let us believe that nothing is impossible with respect to each and every one of God’s precious promises to us, and demonstrate the same, trusting faith that was expressed by Mary - that nothing is impossible to God, even when we don’t understand.

My Prayer

Loving Father, thank You for Your Word and the many promises that fill its pages. Thank You that nothing is impossible with respect to any of Your precious promises not only to me individually but to all people. Forgive me for the times I have doubted Your Word and help me to stand firm in all that You have promised, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
