(Matthew 19:26) Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Jesus said this to his disciples in response to their question, “who then can be saved?”  Do you have someone that you have been praying for that shows no inclination to accepting Jesus?  I have a small group of people I pray for that have not shown any apparent move toward salvation.  This scripture has been an encouragement, and it has helped with my resolve to keep on praying.

My wife’s mother use to say, “Remember, everyone is just one prayer away from salvation.”  This is true, and salvation can happen at any time.  We don’t know what is taking place in a person’s heart, or what circumstances they will encounter on their path, but God does.  We pray, and God does the work.  God’s timing is perfect.  He can bring them to that place where they see their need for him.  As for us, we trust in God’s ability, have faith in his goodness and mercy, and we patiently wait upon him. 

We can also find strength in knowing that we are praying in God’s will, because he desires that none would perish, but that all should have eternal life.  Therefore, we can be encouraged knowing that “with God all things are possible”.
