Your problem is big. God is bigger.
Your faults are great. God is greater.
It seems impossible. God does the impossible.
Have you forgotten the power which resides within you? You are HIS creation. His spirit lives within you. Through him you ARE capable and you will be MORE THAN a CONQUEROR.
What problem are you facing on this Thursday morning? What impossible is knocking on your door? May I remind you of of the words our great big God tucked away in Jeremiah 32:27 – “I am the Lord … is anything too hard for me?”
Nothing is too hard for our God. Nothing is beyond his scope. Your impossible is 100% possible with God.
Why? Because God sees it all. He sees your faults. He sees your struggles. He sees your problem. He sees your impossible. AND HE LOVES YOU TOO MUCH TO LEAVE YOU ALONE.
Go ahead and insert your name and your problem. God says: Kimberly, your daughter is not too hard for me. Doreen, your restored peace is not too hard for me. Kelly, your brother’s healing is not too hard for me. Kristina, your future is not too hard for me.
So what will your response be to this amazing, loving God of yours? What will you do with your problems today? Oh there are many options.
You can pile up your problems and take inventory. You can talk about them. You can wallow in them. You can magnify them. Those are always popular options.
Or maybe you’re more like me and you tend to do the opposite. You ignore your problems. You try your best to pretend they’re not there, as if your avoidance of the truth will somehow change it. And so the problem grows bigger as we bury our head in the sand and life spirals out of control.
Life is not perfect … let us not live in la la land.
Nor is it hopeless … let us not live in doom and gloom.
Within you is creativity, wisdom and strength and it’s EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TODAY. You can do ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS YOU. Whatever it is you need to do today, you CAN do it because the spirit of God dwells within you and God has already made it clear, NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR HIM!
Here’s what we’re going to bank on today. A promise from God in Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.”
Do you have a problem you don’t know the answer for? Are you searching for the way, but you don’t know how to navigate this messy and unknown territory? God has promised you if you will call to him, he will tell you great things you do not know.
So here’s our action plan this morning girls:
CALL TO HIM.
Could it be that simple?
Oh yes, it could be and it really is. The answers you seek are already in you. When you call out to God for help it releases all the creativity, wisdom and strength you need for the next step. Then it’s a matter of REPEAT. Call out again and receive for the step after that.
You don’t have to be discouraged today. You don’t have to be filled with fear. God is ready, willing and able to HELP YOU. Oh how he loves you. His love can move mountains … yes, your mountain.
What’s your impossible today?
This isn’t too hard for God, and because he responds to your call and tells you things you otherwise could never know, and strengthens you to do things you could never do on your own, you have no reason to fear. You have every reason to move forward!
