Trust God to Do Great Things
By Rick Warren
Everything is possible with God.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’” (Matthew 19:26 NIV).
Why did Saddleback Church launch the PEACE Plan? What makes us think we could lead thousands of other churches to go after the five biggest problems on the planet? The answer is that we have a big God.
People say, “Who do you think you are?” Wrong question. The question is, “Who do we think God is?” My God can do anything.
Jesus said, “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29 NIV).
God wants to use you. He wants to bless you. He wants to do amazing things in your life. He wants you to be a world changer. But he’s waiting for you to trust him.
Stop saying, “I can’t.” “I can’t make this marriage work.” “I can’t do what God wants me to do.” “I can’t love those who are different than me.” Those are lies! All things are possible with God.
Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of—infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” (TLB).
That’s why, through these devotionals, I push you. It’s because I know you have enormous potential—far beyond what you ever imagined. God wants to use you, and according to your faith it will be done to you.
Do you know what the greatest opposition to your faith is? It’s not other people. It’s not critics. It’s not even the devil. It’s your own unbelief.
You have a choice. You can choose to believe God—or not. You can choose to trust God—or not. There are many things you don’t have control over. But you can choose to have faith in God.
Do you want God to do big things in your life? Then start believing.
