When was the last time you had a major goal, and someone told you, “that’s not possible,” or “you can’t do that?” Did you let their comments prevent you from hitting your target? Or did you let it roll off your shoulder and keep your focus?
Sometimes we might feel like the mountain in front of us is impossible to climb. But when we step back, reassess, and push harder, we can usually figure out how to start scaling the cliffside. Sure, you might lose your footing a few times along the way, but you’ll eventually reach a higher elevation and be able to look at how far you came.
But we shouldn’t climb these mountains are our own. We become more possible as we love Jesus and His gospel. And those colossal-sized mountains don’t look as big when He is the one providing us directions on where to go.
Romans 2:28 reads, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Because we love Him, he works for our benefit! How awesome is that?
He, who died on the Cross for us, had the power to stop His pain and suffering. But he didn’t. Christ went endless rounds and never quit. He completed the ultimate AMRAP for us.
Jesus showed us what is possible. And because of Him, we can do many things that may seem at impossible at first. He is there at the top of the mountain cheering us on, telling us what to do, and helping us see how much is really possible in our lives.

2. Commit Matthew 19:26 to memory.
