The power of faith

According to the bible, faith is a substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. This is the basis of many impossible things that we see happening around us.

Let’s look at two people from the Bible who did the impossible. But they did it anyway, because of God’s involvement.

By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.

Sarah had a child when she was 91 years old. Physically, it was impossible. She had long since lost the ability to bear children.

But she did what she could not do.

Sarah achieved this impossibility because of God’s promise, and because she believed God would keep His promise.

When Samson came to Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him. Then the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him; and the ropes that were on his arms became like flax that is burned with fire, and his bonds broke loose from his hands.

He found a fresh jawbone of a donkey, reached out his hand and took it, and killed a thousand men with it.

Samson killed 1000 of the Lord’s enemies with a bone.

He did what he could not do.

No human being is capable of single-handedly killing 1000 people at one time, with no weapon but a bone. No matter how strong or skilled any man may be, he could easily be overcome by such superior numbers.

But with God’s anointing and help — the situation is different.

With God helping you: you have God’s ability to do God’s will.

You can do whatever God’s Word says you should do.

Your sufficiency is of God.

Whatever God wants you to do — He will help you. God does not play favorites. Just as He helped Samson and Sarah to do what they could not do — He will help you to do His will — even if “it is impossible.”

The Future Begins Today

One thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,

Today Is the first day of the rest of your life. And it will be what you and God make it.

Your past does not have to dictate your future. You can begin again. With God you really can have a fresh start.

God can forgive your past — and help you to forgive yourself.

But most importantly, God can change you. He can make you into the kind of person you know you should be.

Your life can be different. But don’t think it will be different if you continue to do things exactly the same as you always have.

For your life to change — you must MAKE changes.

If you want real change — God’s Word is the key. You must immerse yourself in the Word. What you feed in determines the output of your life.

“And now I entrust you to God and the word of his grace–his message that is able to build you up and give you an inheritance with all those he has set apart for himself.

God’s Word will build you up. Jesus said it would make you free
— if you continue in

The Bible is God’s answer to man’s problems. It gives life and hope and instruction so we can walk in victory.

Prayer is also vital. Prayer is communication with God. All relationships require communication to keep from growing cold.

So, actively involve God in your life. Consult with Him on every decision. God is the best helper you will ever have.

The future can be better. The choice is yours. If you invite and involve God in your future — it will be bright!
