God is able!
December 8, 2009
"Please, sir, if the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all his wonderful deeds that our fathers recounted to us…?"
Have you ever known someone who has lost their hope? It's a terrible thing because it impacts the way a person thinks, acts, and lives.
Such was the case with the Bible hero Gideon. Yes, that's right, hero! Before Gideon became one of God's champions, he was completely without hope.
When the angel of the Lord appeared to him and called him a "mighty man of valor," Gideon replied, "Why have all these bad things happened to us? Where is the God who delivered our fathers from Egypt? He has forsaken us and given us to our enemies."
If Gideon ever had faith, he had lost it. He no longer believed in God's ability to save him or his people. He was hopeless. But God looked beyond Gideon's weaknesses and hopelessness to see a champion.
And that's how God sees you, too. He sees all your potential, and all that you can be and do when your faith is placed in him!
Don't listen to the enemy when he tells you that you are defeated. Start believing again and trust in the God who can do the impossible.
You are more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. Put your hope and trust in him. Your God is able!
START BELIEVING AGAIN, AND TRUST IN THE GOD
WHO CAN DO THE IMPOSSIBLE!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
