Most of us at some point have read the famous quote from the Bible, “With God, all things are possible.” It’s plastered over walls, coffee mugs, and t-shirts. It’s a wonderful encouragement to know that God has our best interests and He is with us every day.
“With God, All Things Are Impossible” is a beautiful passage reminding us that God can do anything; he’s omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. He can take someone like ‘little old’ us, and use us for His glory.
What Does It Mean That All Things Are Possible With God
We often hear this phrase – “With God, all things are impossible.” – but what does it actually mean?
The first thing (and probably the most important) is to remember that God works things out for us according to His Will, not ours. In other words, things most often don't work out the way we want them to because God has bigger (and different) plans for us.
But this phrase is meant to give us the hope and confidence to push through when times are tough.
The armor of God shield we’re promised as Christians gives us the faith to endure the hard times, not necessarily avoid the hard times we encounter. With God, all things work for His purpose, not how we think our lives should go.
All Things Are Possible with God Verses
Let me get to the meat of the meaning. Over and over again in scripture, it reveals that we must have faith in Him and His works. We only see difficulties through our own lens, not God’s bird's eye view. He knows what’s best for us and how to draw us closer to Him. He loves us unconditionally.

It doesn’t matter what your situation is — don’t ask God to take the difficulties from you, instead, ask for God’s will for your life and don’t think it’s impossible for you.

In Genesis 18:14, God told Abraham that he was going to have a son even though he was pretty old. Abraham was puzzled as to how this could happen. God’s answer was, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?” And, Jeremiah reminds us as we saw earlier that there is nothing “too hard” for God.
