"Our prayers cannot stretch the limits of what God is able to do."
"God can do
- All we ask
- All we ask or think of asking
- More than we can ask or think of asking
- More abundantly than all we can ask or think
- Far more abundantly than all we can ask or think"
What "impossible" do you find yourself in today? Do you have a spouse threatening divorce? Is your teenager rebelling? Do you have mounting financial woes? Are you lonely, depressed, angry or anxious? Whatever your situation, if you are God's child, don't underestimate His love for you and his willingness to act on your behalf. Paul prayed for the Ephesians, "...that you being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge..." It is often in times of struggle that we best experience the knowledge of God's love. God does not always remove His children from life's difficulties, but He is able and willing to help us through trials and pain to attain maturity in Christ. Keep praying about the "impossible" and watch God work-around, in and through you!
Points to Ponder:
1. Do you acknowledge and rest in God's love for you?
2. What in your life seems "impossible"? Have you given up or given it up to God?
3. Do you believe that God can change your circumstances or change you?
4. If you are struggling with unbelief, confess it to the Lord. Ask God to help you know and experience His love and to place your trust in Him and what He can accomplish in times of trial.
