Mark 10:27

"Looking at them, Jesus said, "With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God." (NASB)


"Looking at them, Jesus said, "With people it is impossible (adunatos: impotent, could not do, weak, without strength, powerless, weakly, disabled), but not with God; for all things are possible with God (dunatos: able, powerful, mighty, strong, mighty, excelling in something, having power for something)."


Looking at them, Jesus said, “People are too weak and powerless, but not God; for God is powerful, strong and mighty to do all things.”


Again we have a verse that has been thrown around so much that it seems no one really pays attention to what it’s saying. We could simplify this greatly without really altering the point of this text by saying, “God has all of the power to do anything and we don’t.” God is all powerful, He is all-knowing, He is holding all things together with one word from His mouth. So walk confidently today that God, your God, cannot be shaken or thrown off by anything that you approach Him with. How grand are your dreams? How vast are your expectations? If they’re rooted in eternal matters, believe that God is powerful and able to bring them to pass.
