Is there anything too hard for God to do? We’ve read that scripture, we know about that scripture, we’ve claimed it, talked about it, but do we really believe it. Do we really know that nothing is too hard for God to do? Have we grasped the essence of God in his all powerful all knowledgeable form?
If we have then why do we become so distraught and perplexed when faced with challenging circumstances?
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying don’t cry or be sad when thing don’t turn out right, we are humans with emotions and will certainly feel pain real enough to cause despair.
But after the initial shock of whatever it is we face has passed where do we go from there? Do we continue with the same attitude of “whatever will be, will be” or go back to the rock of our salvation.
Faith is a belief, a believe that God will do what he said he will do. God’s word is full of promises to us, to the childless couple he said “you will be a mother of many nations” to the down trodden he is an up lifter
To those in darkness he said I’ve come as a light
God’s word has been fulfilled in Jesus. Whatever it is we want has already been provided all we have to do is step into the finish work of Calvary and claim what’s rightfully ours.
One of the ways I claim what’s mine in the word is by declaring it over my life, I know we already know this, but we need to move past the place of speaking the word to actually speaking it in faith knowing that it will come to pass otherwise it will just remain a confession.
There has to be a conviction down in our souls that we know that we know that we know that he is faithful who has promised and will bring it to pass.
So whatever you believe God for, no matter the obstacles, the problems, the issues, he is bigger than them all and will carry us over them, through them, around them and bring us safely to his perfect purpose for our lives.
If you are struggling to stay in the faith race, or have been waiting for that promised child for a long time, wait for it, it shall surely come, all you have to do is cry out to him “Lord I believe, help my unbelief”
As you do, watch him bring his promises to pass in your life.
