Have you ever said, “I can’t believe that?” I’ve been watching the NBA Playoffs, and that’s exactly what I said when I saw Ron Artest’s (forward for the LA Lakers) hair. He died it blond and purple, kind of like Dennis Rodman used to wear his hair. I couldn’t believe he had the courage to wear such an extreme hairstyle.
Zacharias also uttered that phrase, but not without consequences. An angel said that he, an old man with a barren, old wife, would have a son named John. Zacharias replied, “I can’t believe that.” His problem was that he looked at himself and not at God: “I’m an old man now, and my wife is also well along in years” (Luke 1:18, New Living Translation). Consequently, he was unable to speak until God fulfilled His promise. Nine months later, John was born.
This email is a reminder that God is omnipotent. Yes, He can do anything, including what we can’t believe. Don’t let anything, including your limitations, convince you otherwise. For nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37, New Living Translation).
