Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
A young woman who had strayed from her walk with Christ was leaving work one evening. She encountered several men approaching her from across the dark parking lot. Jeering and making threatening comments to her, they came closer and closer. Anxious to leave the scene, she quickly sat herself in the driver's seat, closed and locked the doors.
As she glanced at the rear-view mirror she could see that the men were only a few feet away, laughing. She nervously turned her key in the ignition, but nothing happened! The car wouldn't start. Knowing her safety was in jeopardy, she did something she hadn't done in months - she prayed. With a passion, she prayed to God for protection. One last time, she turned the key, and this time, without hesitation, the engine came to life and she sped away.
When morning came, she tried to start the car again, only to encounter the same mechanical problem. Though she tried again and again, the car wouldn't start. After having the car towed to a repair garage, she described how it wouldn't start at first the previous night, but then it suddenly did.
After inspecting her engine, the puzzled mechanic asked again if it had actually started the night before. Upon confirming what he thought she had said, he let her know that it shouldn't have started at all - for there was no battery in her car!
Recalling the previous night's episode, she remembered the sheer shock of surprise on the jeering men's faces when her car started. It was then that she realized they must have taken her battery!
God is Your battery when you need it. Call on Him in Your need, nothing is impossible with Him.
Dear Lord, thank You for being there and that nothing is impossible with You. Help us to ever stray from You but to always call upon Your name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
