For nothing is impossible with God. Luke 1:37
Jesus replied, What is impossible with men is possible with God. Luke 18:27

Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying, “she said: “one ca’n’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as
six impossible things before breakfast.”
How much practice have I had believing the impossible? But actually as I think about it, it is not the impossible I would be believing. A better question is who am I believing? Do I believe God truly is capable of the impossible? Or do I just believe in possibilities? That which I can see could happen or even know that I can manipulate so that it does happen.
