Be encouraged to know that with God all things are possible! Know that there is nothing too hard for God and therefore nothing is too hard for you when you’re WITH Him!!
No matter what the situation looks like, no matter what man has said, God spoke FIRST and His word remains supreme (Psalm 138:2); His Word hold everything together (Col 1:17); His word never fails! WHEN WE BELIEVE, WE RECEIVE! (Matthew 21:22)
Here are a few more verses to wash our minds with the truth about what God has said to us in the area of challenging circumstances:
Jeremiah 32:27: “I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?
Matthew 19:26: Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Mark 9:23: “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” Jesus asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”
God clearly wants us to continue to believe on Him in the midst of every challenging circumstance…His desire is that we wouldn’t be swayed by what our eyes see, by what someone else says, or by the emotions of our flesh. Instead, His desire is for us to come to Him in those very moments that present us with a challenge, so that He can remind us of who HE is and what HE has said. He will also remind us of who WE are in HIM. What we are experiencing in the challenging situation is temporary but God’s promises are eternal.
When we go to The Holy Spirit with an open heart, He reminds us of God’s character – of His unconditional love towards us, His compassion and kindness, and His constant faithfulness to what He has spoken in His Word. He will remind us that God already went ahead of us and made provision for us for that very circumstance!
In those moments where you’ve done everything you know to do and the situation still hasn’t changed, a door still hasn’t opened, a loved one still hasn’t turned their life over to The Lord…whatever the challenging circumstance is, it’s time to see God in your midst and to let go of the steering wheel. Rest in His faithfulness and in the provisions of His grace.
See Jesus. See God’s spoken Word. See what Jesus did on the cross. See even before the cross…see that God spoke His Word over you and your life and already made every provision for you before the foundation of the world!! (Ephesians 1:4, Ephesians 1:11, 1 Peter 1:20, Titus 1:2).
God’s promises and provisions for our lives were made WAY before we were ever born! He spoke His faithful provisions into our lives even before He ever made the earth!! Before he made us, He made every kind of provision for us – supernatural as well as natural.
Prayer is simply about coming into agreement with God and allowing His Word to bring us into that place of perfect alignment with what ALREADY IS in the supernatural. We need the Word (Jesus) who is truth to lead us into that place where we can see as God sees through the power of the Holy Spirit working in us. God really really wants us to receive what He took the time to personally prepare for us.
In Christ, we freely receive what was already prepared for us thousands of years ago in the supernatural realm. There is NO lack in the kingdom. There is nothing God didn’t think of, nothing He has forgotten. No ounce of love He spared. We don’t have to beg and plea with God for anything, for He thought about those provisions way before we ever knew we would need them…He thought about them before we were ever born…He thought about them before He created the world, because that’s when He first thought about US. Before He made us, He made everything for us.
Be reminded today, whether in the middle of your own challenging circumstance or standing with someone else in the middle of something they are experiencing, that OUR GOD IS THE CREATOR OF THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH AND THE WHOLE UNIVERSE!!! NOTHING IS TOO HARD FOR HIM!! (Luke 18:27)
See that God already gave Himself, and He made healing provisions for our physical bodies as well as salvation for our souls…heaven is holding the supply in God’s storehouse of grace for us. Since God took the time to make those provisions out of His love for us, let us not miss out on receiving them…let us turn to Him and allow Him to wash us in His word so that we are cleansed from all doubt and unbelief, from all lies of the enemy, from all conditioned thinking of this world, and let us be free from everything that is contrary to what God’s Word speaks to us.
We meditate on God’s Word so that it can work in our hearts, in our minds, in our souls and in our physical body how we need it to! Whether as fuller’s soap (Mal 3:2), a refiner’s fire (Mal 3:3), the sword of the spirit (Heb4:12), or a hammer (Jer 23:29) to break up that gigantic rock that keeps getting in the way…
If you’re in the middle of a challenging situation, I encourage you to skip your favorite t.v. show this week and take a bath in God’s word instead. 🙂 You’ll come out feeling even more refreshed and fulfilled than you do after washing your favorite show. It even seems like a shallow comparison to type that, but sometimes our flesh needs convincing…you can always watch your show too if you get time for that after you’ve had a good bath!!
By the grace of God given to us in Jesus Christ, let us come BOLDLY to God’s throne of grace with confidence (full expectation that we have already received), so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. (Heb 4:16)
God’s blessing is on you! Believe and receive!
