We are taught from a young age that Christmas is a time for long-awaited hopes and dreams to be fulfilled. Rightly so, because Christmas is all about miracles!

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded him and took to him his wife.” (Matthew 1:23-24)

Christmas is a celebration of the miraculous virgin birth of Jesus; God came to earth in human form to live among us and save people from their sins. Do you believe what Jesus said, that all things are possible with God?

“But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27)

If we are not expecting God to do the impossible at Christmas or any other time of the year, maybe it is because of past disappointments, of times where we had hope and anticipation but did not see our prayers answered.

If so, we need to ask God to revive our faith despite our disappointments. If former letdowns hold us back from having faith in God, the Bible encourages us to believe with all our hearts and not doubt God because doubt inhibits the impossible.

“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.” (James 1:6)

The Bible explains what happened when Jesus visited His hometown, and the residents doubted Him. Their disbelief affected what they were able to receive from Jesus.

“Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58)

If you lack faith in believing God can do the impossible, ask Him to increase your faith.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

At Christmas and all year long, choose to believe that nothing is too difficult for God to bring about in our lives by stepping out in faith and asking Him to transform your impossibilities into possibilities.

“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” (John 1:3)

Remember that everything we see around us in God’s creation was once impossible without God. Start stepping out in faith and change your impossibilities into possibilities.

How do you approach Christmas? Are you hoping for God to do the impossible in your life?
