Dear Precious Friends,
On This TGIFF ( Thank God I'm Forgiven Friday) I pray you are embracing the gift of this day thanking God for a new day and for the gift of life, love and mostly His presence with us and in us! He has us here to do the work He has given us to do or we wouldn't be here!
I am sharing this amazing song today because it was featured recently at our women's conference and each word reminds us to believe for the impossible! We have to remember the God of the impossible who raised Jesus from the dead... as believers, we have His resurrection power in us! Believe for it... God will release our Faith for the impossible because we serve a God who specializes in the impossible. When we think things can't change, we place our faith in the God who specializes in the impossible. God can handle anything you are going through and anything we've been through. He knows what we are facing right now, and He knows what we are facing in the future. So lets release our faith and believe. God responds to our faith. Take a moment to take in this song!
PLEASE DON'T READ ANOTHER WORD UNTIL YOU TAKE IN THIS SONG!!!
“Amen, I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move” (Matthew 17:20).
Faith is so vital to the Christian life that Scripture tells us that, without it, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Yet faith is such a powerful gift from God (Ephesians 2:8–9) Christ told His disciples that, with just a tiny measure of it, the size of a mustard seed, they could move mountains. A lack of faith is simply not trusting God to keep His promises...
When you spend time in thankfulness and worship you take your eyes off of the problem and place them on the One who can solve the problem. The more we focus on the problem the bigger it gets and the harder it is to overcome. When we focus on Him, the problems get smaller, our trust is built and it is dealt with sooner.
Faith is about getting to know who God is in relation to your problem. Spend time with Him everyday. Love Him and let Jesus love you back. Ask Him to heal your heart of things that are holding you back and trust Him to do it in the best way.
God has extraordinary plans for us and great things that He wants accomplished on this earth. The amazing thing is that He allows us the privilege of being His hands and feet on this earth to get them done. One of the things it requires is faith.
So I challenge US today to trust God for something. Something that is just beyond what WE know can be done in the natural. Something only God can do—and then be amazed as He does it, and we will watch our faith grow. Watch out mountain, here we come!
