The house where I grew up had a huge rock that served as the front step. The old house is no longer habitable, so my wife and I asked the owner if we could have the rock. We wanted it for sentimental reasons. We planned to place it in the landscaping of the new house we just moved into.
The owner graciously gave us the rock. The only problem was that I didn’t have the means to move it. I don’t have any piece of equipment powerful enough to move that stone, and even if I did, I do not own a vehicle capable of hauling such a heavy object.
Fortunately, I discovered that a neighbor had access to a tractor with a front end lift that was able to hoist the rock. I have another friend who loaned me his dump trailer and pickup truck so that I could haul the rock to my house.
I now had the power necessary to do the work. We loaded, hauled and dumped the huge rock with ease. The job went remarkably well once I had access to the necessary power.
There are things in this life that are much too big for us to handle on our own. However, with God’s power we can accomplish those things which would otherwise be impossible.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.’”—Mark 10:27.
