Bible Verse for the Day | Mark 9:23
"Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."
Hello everyone…and a very happy and blessed Wednesday to you all! I sure hope that your day is going well! As we begin our time together today, my prayer for you; is that you will come to truly experience a God that can do all things…no matter what you may be going through at this time…Amen!
The other morning, as I was spending some time alone with God, I was asking Him for His help, as I had recently injured my left knee; and how did I do that…by simply stepping up on a chair to hang some curtains over the weekend. Yes…my husband could have done it for me; but there is one thing I do, which helps me to keep going…and that is to pursue…pursue and pursue, until I find a way to accomplish something that needs to be done.
Anyways, as I was relaxing the knee that afternoon, I began to read some words that God had blessed my heart with some time back…and as I began to share my heart with Him, I was reminded, as to how I needed to remove myself from this problem and not allow it to take me down…and why, because it is no problem for God.
As I am thinking on this even more today, I am reminded of a story in the Bible, where the Lord came to Abraham and said that Sarah would have a son; but as Sarah stood behind the tent door, she began to laugh to herself, because she was old in age…and beyond her childbearing years. As the Lord heard Sarah laughing in the background, He said in Genesis 18:14… "Is anything too hard for the Lord? At the time appointed I will return unto thee, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." To make a long story short, Sarah did conceive, and she did give birth to a son, named Isaac.
I just wonder why we limit God. Could it be that we only see Him as a God that can work in ways that we see and experience here on earth? Yes, there are times when God doesn't always resolve the problem all at once; because He has a plan…but no matter what He does or allows, He is always victorious in the end.
As I look back on my life, I remember the moments when my faith in God wasn't where it should have been at the time. You see…I was focused so much on all the pain and deep heartache in my life; that I actually think that I had given up on God for a while; but then later, God took me down to nothing, so I could rise up with Him and see Him as something…something very powerful, loving and compassionate, then I could have ever imagined.
Last night, as I was spending some time with God before bed, I was thanking Him for all the beautiful God inspired writings that we have done together over the years…and as I continued to share my heart with Him, I began to tell Him that there would be no words without Him…and how do I know this? Because there was a time in my life, when I struggled to just graduate from school. You see…I did so poorly in school, because I missed so much class time, due to all the knee surgeries…so one thing I can say to you for sure; is that there would be no way that I could do all of this on my own, which is a reminder to me, as to how powerful God is.
Over my lifetime, I have come to truly see that God sometimes allows a problem into our lives to make us humble…and even allow us to see and experience a God who can truly do the impossible. Maybe today, you are feeling, as if nothing could ever remove you from the problem you're facing. Maybe you have been convinced that this is the way it will always be…or even more…maybe you see these difficult times in your life, as something that will defeat you and bring you to destruction. No matter what it is, I would like to remind you…like the Lord reminded Sarah; that nothing is too hard for the Lord. I truly believe that when we focus on this, rather than what the problem wants us to believe; then we will truly come to see; that even though there is a problem…it is no problem for God.
I have to tell you; I've been truly blessed by our visit today…and my prayer for all of us; is that we won't become so engulfed within a problem; that we lose sight of who God truly is. As we close our time together today, I hope that you will have a great day…just knowing that the God of impossibility is by your side…and that you will also come back again tomorrow…and join me once more, for another great God inspired visit. Have a very blessed day…and always remember that this powerful God loves you so much! Bye for now!
It's Always & Only Because of Him…
