“Is anything too difficult for the LORD”?

Genesis 18:14


 

Life has challenges. I think we can all agree with that. Family challenges, emotional challenges, health challenges, financial challenges, relational challenges, occupational challenges and addictive challenges. Many of our challenges are self-inflicted by making poor decisions and choices that write our future – actions and choices that can set us back for weeks, months or even years.

 

However, with God, He owns the pen to our lives. We write history with the poor choices and decisions we make—However, only God can re-write our future for our good and for His glory. He can right the ship of our life, IF we don’t steal His pen!

 

Here is a very specific summery of what God wants for our life—“Love, Joy, Peace Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control.”(Galatians 5:22). Our country and our lives would be in much better order if we would allow the Spirit of God to live out these nine characteristics in us and through us.

 

I’m not sure what you’re dealing with in your life right now, however I can’t encourage you enough to run to God. Don’t run away from Him. Focus of God, not your circumstances. Submit to Him. Obey Him. Spend time with Him. Surrender to Him. Trust Him. God can take all your “mess” and turn them into your greatest message.

 

Nothing is to difficult for the Lord—so allow Him to invade your heart and soul and become the Lord of your life.

 

Be Worth Being,

Kevin
