Then one day two men came along to find him there They asked him to look up and he looked into their stare They said they had not alms for him. He thought they didn’t care There was not much he could say Then one man spoke to him with all authority He took His hand and helped him rise up on his feet Those legs that always failed him now held up like a tree True joy came over him that day He went leaping and shouting and praising God Leaping and shouting and praising the one who had raised him.

One man heard from God when a flood was coming
His family got together and built them an ark
One hundred years that boat was in the making
All of them were saved since they listened to God
One boy came to the battle with a sling on his hip
The giant came out and hollered at the crowd
That boy grab some stones and ran to the battle
He flung that stone real hard and the giant hit the ground
Nothing is impossible with God
Nothing is too big, nothing is too hard
Nothing is impossible with God
Come to Him today. Don’t get scared away
Bring your biggest problems to the Lord
Three men decided they would not bow before a statue
The king got really mad and flared the furnace hot
He threw those three men in suspected they would burn up
Those three men trusted God and came out alive
No battle too big. No mountain too high.
No river to swift. No storm can abide.
His power is greater. His love is immense
So give Him your battles. He’ll save you again and again.
Four years ago, the enemy put cancer in front of me. A difficult cancer. A hard cancer to go through. My blood was 63% cancerous. The enemy tried and tried and tried again to out fear in my heart. He tried to discourage me. He tried to bring my wife and I to a place where we questioned God. But he would not. We knew who we believed. We knew a god who performed miracles all the time. We knew a God who could never be defeated. We knew as long as we trusted in Him, everything would come out OK. We knew that he always took everything that comes into our lives and turns it for our good There was no doubt in our minds that God would bring us through victorious and would do wonderful things in our lives along the way.. We had the victory before the battle even started!
What are you facing today? What has the enemy of your soul put in front of you trying to draw you away from your faith and into doubt? God is big enough to bring you through also. Trust Him!
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding
In all your ways acknowledge Him and he shall direct your path
He has the power to take my troubled past
And turn me into a a blessing that will last
He has the power to free me from my sin
And make me whole way down deep within
He has the power to turn my longing heart
Into a vessel that bursts it’s seems apart
He has the power to take this washed up soul
And make it new again in service for my Lord
He has the power my sorrow to erase
And bring out joy in every single case
He has the power to calm the raging storm
And bring me peace as I walk along the shore
He has the power to take the old man out
Create a new man who walks without a doubt
He has the power to cast my fears away
With His great love that follows me each day
He has the power to take the hardest things
He hears my prayers and all my answers brings
He has the power to walk with me each day
And gently guide me along His blessed way
In the beginning, God spoke the world into existence, brought light by merely saying “Let there be Light” and brought all life into this world by His words. He brought 10 plagues on the Egyptians, parted the Red Sea for the Israelites, brought them manna in the wilderness and quails in abundance and then opened up the flooded Jordan River to they could pass into the Promised Land. He knocked down the walls of Jericho with a shout, gave Joshua battle plans for victory against all His enemies, gave Caleb the strength to claim his inheritance and caused Ruth to come to Boaz. He gave Gideon a plan, strengthened Samson’s hand, guided the stone from David’s sling saved Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego from the fiery furnace, and shut the lion’s mouth for Daniel. He healed the leper, gave the blind man sight, made the lame man walk and the dumb to talk. He raised the dead, made water into wine, fed five thousand with a young boy’s lunch and took all of our sins to a cross.
When we see the mighty works of God throughout the Bible, how can we not have the faith to know He can take care of our needs? He has the power to do anything we ask Him to do. He may not do it exactly as we have asked, but He will answer our prayers. He promises this over and over again in His word. Will you believe Him today for the things in your life that are lacking?
Jeremiah 33:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
