Nothing is impossible with You on my side!

Father_freedomI will end this week with a fun song from one of my favorite songwriters and worship leaders, Jonathan David Helser. It’s live and it’s wild! This is also a favorite worship song at our church.

I love the theme. Because God is love, we are free from fear. Nothing is impossible with Him on our side. 

When we know we have a Papa who loves us this way, and is always with us and for us, does it matter who’s against us? I will dance on the chains of my circumstance, walk on the waves of the storm. And we will do things we would never dare do as an orphan-hearted believer.

A quick story. We were at a church get-together out on a farm one time. Some went to a creek where you could swim. There was a rope where you could jump off into the water from a high bank. A young girl there so wanted to jump off the rope like the others but she was afraid. And there was a strong current so there was reason for caution. Her father wasn’t there at the time, but there were several other fathers with their kids sitting at the other shore below. They started to shout to her, “Just jump! You can do it! We’ll make sure you’re okay!” So she got up her courage and jumped into an afternoon adventure she’ll probably never forget. That’s what our heavenly Papa does for us! Truly, He makes us brave.

Our whole perspective changes when we see our life from His view–seated in heavenly places in the Father’s embrace.

We won’t let our circumstances stop us. We will live out our dreams. We won’t accept a life inhibited by fear and doubt. For now we know we are His beloved!

So take some time to listen to this song, look at the lyrics and make it your anthem for life. Nothing is impossible for those who believe! Papa is there to catch you…just step out and jump into the wild wonder of a life full of Him and overflowing with His great love.

You are loved by Love!

God is Love
By Jonathan David Helser

I will dance on the chains of
my circumstance, walk on the
waves of the storm (2x)
nothing is impossible for those
who believe God is Love (2x)

God is love, God is love
I won’t be afraid
God is love, God is love
Nothing is impossible

I will live out these dreams
You placed in me, shout down
These walls of fear (2x)
Nothing is impossible for those
Who believe God is love (2x)

I can scale a wall
I can move a mountain
I can slay the giants
With you on my side
I can raise the dead
I can free the nations
I can fly

Look how small our fears are
From up here, up here in His heart
Look how small our enemy is
Compared to our God
Compared to His heart

    Sometimes we don’t think of spiritual concepts like love and grace as weapons of warfare against the powers of darkness, but they are. The song makes me think of 2 Cor. 10:4-5: “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Every good thing, every tool of the light, struggles against darkness and the darkness that grapples for our hearts and minds. It’s the stuff with which we should be constantly reinforcing ourselves.

      That’s a great point, Mike. Love is what drives out fear which is a major tactic of the enemy to keep us from God, bound up, or stop us from doing what God is calling us to do. But when you know that you know you’re loved by God, and walk in that love, no amount of resistance or rejection will move you from it. What a wonderfully effective weapon! Blessings.

    Thanks so much Mel. Any ideas about how to make your dreams a reality, some practicalities? Also, any more on ” orphan-heartedness “.

    • Mel Wild says:

      You’re very welcome, Drew. You have some great questions, but neither can be answered briefly! 🙂 I will answer your second question first. The best way for what I have to say about orphan-heartedness would be if you just typed “orphan” in the search box. You will find what I’ve written on it so far.

      As far as making dreams a reality, that’s such a broad subject that I couldn’t give you specifics for making your particular dream a reality, but there are a couple of things you can do to prepare yourself.

      The key I have found is having an open heart to the Father’s love and learning to be loved by Him. It’s actually believing what He says about me in His word, how He feels about me, what He’s given me and who I am in Christ. From this place, my attitude is always to be prayerful, teachable and flexible, listening to others who have gone before me and recognizing when doors open and walk through those doors by faith. If you have kept your heart pliable before the Lord, you will know when a door opens. But it’s the Father’s affections that make us bold to do what we normally would not have the courage to do.

      Each door that opens leads to another door that eventually leads you to your destiny. Don’t despise the day of small beginnings (Zech.4:10). The disciples started by handing out fish and bread. Stephen and Phillip did many mighty things, but they started by waiting on tables (Acts 6-7). As you abide in Him and walk by faith, He will bring you to your destination. I hope this helps you. Blessings on your journey. You are loved!
