from the day-by-day Murphy's Law calendar
Weiler's Law: Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself.
At first read, and thinking in the context of Murphy's Law, this calendar page made me laugh. How often have we had a boss or coworker or friend make a request that elicits the response "Yeah, easy for you to say!"
Then later I started thinking about how that relates to our relationship with God. The Bible tells us that "nothing is impossible with God" (Luke 1:37). And while some things might be impossible for us, all things are possible with God (Mark 10:27).
So what? Well, if all things are possible with God, when I leave plans and purposes up to Him, nothing is impossible. When I leave the healing of hurts, the mending of relationships, the changing of my heart, the changing of the hearts of others up to Him, nothing is impossible. All of these things are impossible for me to try to do myself. But nothing is impossible for me if I don't try to do it myself but allow the One who is able to do it.
Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn't have to do it himself. Praise God we don't have to do it ourselves!
