George Dantzig was late one morning for class at Berkley. Two problems were written on the board. In a rush he assumed they were homework.
Two days later George handed in the answers to Professor Neyman saying, “Sorry these took so long. I thought they were harder than usual.”
The following Sunday Neyman knocked on George’s door at eight o’clock in the morning. George was then informed that he’d actually solved what was known as two of the most famous unsolved equations for statistics.
When I read the passage in Hebrews about God accepting Abel’s offering and counting him as righteous, I thought, “Now God looked at Abel as a man in good standing with him because his offering was right. Abel had offered his best lamb. If God considered Abel righteous (in good standing) for his lamb, how much more righteous are we in Jesus our lamb?”
That’s how God solved the equation of restoring our broken humanity and making us complete. Now we need to take that answer into every single broken part of the landscape of our life.
What could you do if tomorrow you wake up and see yourself perfectly whole, not tethered by the baggage of your past, and not hindered by the splinters in your mind caused by guilt and shame? I’m guessing if that reality was lived out in your life, God would use you to solve the impossible. Not only the impossible in your life, but in the lives of many others.
Don’t let the seemingly inescapable stress and struggles of today put a lid on your future. Remember, nothing is impossible with God and you can do all things through Christ (Luke 1:37 & Philippians 4:13).
