Here is a section out of my next book that I am currently writing, that I thought might be of interest to you.
In Luke 1:37 we are told that with God nothing is impossible. Now we understand “nothing” to mean not anything or no thing.” We could also say that it is a thing that does not exist. But God does exist, so having something that does not exist is impossible. Remember creation; it did not exist, but with God that was impossible and so it came into existence. With God, having nothing, seeing nothing, doing nothing and actually nothing in and of itself existing thru non-existence is impossible with God. With God, nothing is not the opposite of something implying that with something, there is indeed something, but if nothing is the opposite, then there would be no-thing, and with God that is impossible.
Here’s another way to think about it. There are things that are going to be created in the next five years that don’t exist now, except with God, they do, because He is the alpha and omega, the beginning and the end, so while He is here with us, He is also there five years from now, so what appears not to exist for us, already exists for Him which is why nothing is impossible. That’s why Romans 4:17 is just as real and alive and in our lives today as it was when it was written. “(as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations”) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did.”
According to Wikipedia, the Etymology of exist has this description. “The word “existence” comes from the Latin word existere meaning “to appear”, “to arise”, “to become”, or “to be”, but literally, it means “to stand out” (ex- being the Latin prefix for “out” added to the Latin verb stare, meaning “to stand”). So existence is arising out of nothing to literally stand out and appear.
Our response to God for things that exist is offered to us in Revelation 4:11. “You are worthy, O Lord, To receive glory and honor and power; For You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created.”
Don’t let today’s limitations place your mind in prison thinking that there is no other alternative or option. When people are in prison, someone else holds the key, and the prisoner can only come and go when the guard allows them too. But you have been given the keys of the Kingdom.
So here is a possible prison example. By agreeing with a medical professional who gives you no hope, you then reduce your situation to nothing, but nothing is impossible with God. The doctor may give you no hope, but the report of the Lord is that while the doctor can do nothing, God can’t do nothing because nothing is impossible, so an answer is possible and through faith is accessible to you right now. The same is true of the marriage counselor who urges divorce stating that there is nothing more either of you can do, but nothing is not an option with God and there is plenty more that He can do. Your financial accountant may sit you down and say, you have done everything possible, and there is nothing more that can be done to fix this problem, but God who is the God of impossibilities, can indeed make a coin appear in a fishes mouth, and feed thousands of people with small amounts of food, and can bring in so large of a catch of fish that the nets begin breaking, even though others may have shared that it is impossible.
Don’t listen to others, listen to God. Others will often give you no hope but by adding a “w’ to the word no, we learn that God will give us now hope. Some people even say that God is nowhere – but if you divide up the word nowhere you get now here. God is now here and that is Great News!
When the doctors told me in 1988 that it was impossible for me to get well and that I would have that disease all of my life, and that there was basically nothing that could be done, I began to pray to the God of impossibilities and with whom nothing is not an option and three years later in 1991 I was healed when nothing else could or would work, but God did. And I have remained well now all of this time from that disease in which nothing could be done. Hmm…
Exodus 34:10 gives us this insight. And God said, “As of right now, I’m making a covenant with you: In full sight of your people I will work wonders that have never been created in all the Earth, in any nation.” And since nothing is impossible, we can count on this kind of ongoing creation to continue as the world needs new revelation and new substance to support that revelation.
Whatever impossibilities you are facing right now, and if someone has said to you or someone you know, there is nothing that can be done, remember that with God nothing is impossible. He may be working behind the scenes on your behalf right now, but I am confident that you will discover His plan as you press in to Him and seek Him during this time of need. He is a good God and He is always in a good mood! Praise the Lord!

Nothing is impossible with God. Let us pay for strength to hold onto & believe His word & promise is true, whatever the immediate circumstance.
