Matt. 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said, "For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible."
Power walking is all the rage these days - put on the runners and power walk your way to health. Good stuff. But it's not a new idea.
Interesting - Jesus sent the twelve disciples out on a power walk - two by two into the surrounding villages and towns - to tell people about Him. They went by foot - they weren't allowed to take anything with them - no food, no money, no clothing.
But Jesus gave them something better than that. He gave them His power - the power to cast out demons. The power to heal people. The power to speak His words into their hearts. It was very much - a power walk!
So often when He's called me to do something that's way beyond my own abilities - the bit that I forget - is that with His call comes His power. In fact, looking back on it - He's never asked me to do anything without giving me with the wherewithal to do it.
I think it maybe a Jesus thing.
