Welcome to TUESDAYS TOGETHER (in the WORD).Remember our goal/purpose is that we are reading God's Word and we are sharing with each other a "nugget" of what we are learning. Tuesdays we are together in the Word!
What a week of the Word. So many passages stopped me. Familiar passages. But the one that I have come back to so many times is from Luke 18:27, "But he said, 'What is impossible with men is possible with God'".
How many times in my Christian walk I have read that verse? And I really believe it. There have been many times in my life that I have seen God do the impossible. But I must confess, that there are also many times that I view some situations or dreams or ideas as impossible without even asking God. That would be an ummmm LACK OF FAITH.
This takes me to another passage of scripture. Ephesians 1:18-20, "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead." WOW. Did you see what that says? God's great power for those of us who believe- incomparably great power. AND that He applies this same power to our "whatever" that he used in raising Christ Jesus from the dead.
Makes me stop and think about those things mentioned earlier. My struggles... my situation... my dreams... my ideas... Does it take as much power to work in them - as it took to raise Jesus from the dead? Heavens no! Then come back to the first scripture - What is impossible with men is possible with God. All he is asking for is FAITH. Belief.
Even again today, God is speaking to me about specifics here. I am so thankful for the indwelling personal Holy Spirit.
Father, please give me hears to hear what the Spirit says to me. And then give me the faith to believe. Really believe. Thank you Jesus! Amen and Amen!
I am looking forward to reading your comments and your blog posts this week. Share a scripture with me that spoke to your heart.
