Passages: Darien’s Rise, Part 6 Devotional: Impossibly Possible

October 22nd, 2009

After you’ve heard “Passages: Darien’s Rise, Part 6,” check out this devotional thought. (If you haven’t heard Part 6, check out the Media Player starting October 24. You can also find a station in your area.)

By Jonathan Friday

The impossible?
In today’s episode, Anna told Darien that he would have victory in the battle over Kellen… the Unseen One guaranteed it. But, Colonel Oliver, Darien’s right-hand man, thought the idea was crazy, and even Anna didn’t know how a victory could happen. How could 100 men capture a city? The odds looked impossible.

The funny thing, though, is that God seems to really like working through impossible odds. He used a runaway shepherd to lead a group of slaves through a sea when they were being followed by one of the best armies in the world. He saved a slave from a pit of lions. He protected three followers from being burned alive. He even chose a young unmarried girl to raise the world’s Savior. And when that girl pointed out that she couldn’t possibly have a baby, God’s messenger responded: “…nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37).

Later, Jesus did many miracles that seemed impossible, and taught things that were just as hard to believe. When his believers got discouraged because something looked impossible, Jesus told them, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God” (Mark 10:27, NIV.) Then he proved it by dying and coming back to life!

So how come we still cry over “unsolvable” problems in our families? Why do we panic over homework that “will never get done?” Why are we afraid of so many things? Why don’t we have confidence that anything can happen, with God? Maybe it’s just the way we are…or maybe we can change it. What do you think?

How would you live differently if you acted as if nothing was impossible, with God? Give us your thoughts in the comments below!

  • Emily on October 23rd, 2009 - 8:02am


    I really like Dariens Rise. I have already ordered it! But I really like regular Odyssey better. Great job Odyssey!
    I have listen to Odyssey since I was little. I listen to Odyssey every night! God bless!

  • nathan on October 23rd, 2009 - 9:04am

    I think so often we rely on our own strength and try to do it all ourselves until we reach our “wits’ end” (to borrow the colloquialism). Only then do we consider trusting God to do the impossible. But I believe God wants us to turn to Him alone as soon as a doubt or worry creeps in. He is lovingly waiting to relieve the burden! When we are empty of ourselves, He will work freely and fully! If everyone lived with this audacious faith, our world would be completely different.

    I really like Dariens Rise but I can’t hear part 6 it comes up as The triangle part 2.

  • kech on October 24th, 2009 - 3:20pm


    i agree with audrey

  • c on October 25th, 2009 - 11:44am


    Every time I try to listen to Dariens rise part 6 or Break a Leg it comes up with The Triangle 2. I’m not sure what’s going on but, I tried on my computer, on my mom’s computer, and in 2 different browsers. I hope I can hear it soon though, I love this series.

  • wendy on October 25th, 2009 - 8:51pm


    Part 6 won’t come up as available through the media player and that’s the only access I have to AIO. 🙁

  • Nashana on October 26th, 2009 - 6:28am


    I can’t listen to Darien’s Rise Part 6 on Whit’s End On The Radio. Whenever I click the link it plays The Triangle II. The link for Green Eyes and Yellow Tulips won’t play either. So sad. =(
