Have you ever tried to so hard to believe in what seems to be impossible? Sometimes that might just be getting up in the morning depending on the day before that you might have had. Believing in the impossible is tough, believing for God who can do the impossible and does the impossible every day, to specifically do the impossible in your area of concern! Why is it that believing in the impossible is so hard? How is it that we find ourselves always looking and trying to figure out impossible tasks? I believe, but just that in and of itself is not enough. The bible says that the demons in hell believe there is God and shudder and the sound of His name, so just to believe is not enough! I think life is full of impossibility yet so often we try to figure out how on our own we can make it work! What is it today that is looking you directly in the face and screaming out IMPOSSIBLE? God knows just because He made us that we are unable to do anything with out HIM! I know I need Jesus, and I know that apart from Jesus no mountain is going to get out of my way! But still the question is how can the impossible be accomplished, how can the task that lies ahead be overcome with victory, and when if ever will we see the results that so hard you find yourself searching for? Jesus today help me in my unbelief, enrich my faith, and empower my walk today, in CHRIST!!!

My prayer this morning is Lord come down and powerfully show me your ways that I may walk in them, guide me in your truth, teach me, I am yours! Isaiah 64 says, Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you! For when you did awesome things that we did not expect, you came down, and the mountains trembled before you. Since ancient times no one has heard, no ear has perceived, no eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for Him." It really hit me that I serve THE Living God, who more than I can even fathom wants all of me! I desire for God to truly REND the heavens and come down and so meet with us! Help us to follow Him, help us to trust Him, help us to understand that life is not about us, BUT JESUS! He said the mountains trembled before Him, WOW! I want God to do the unexpected in me, in His church for this is when the awesome things will take place! I am thinking this morning that there is no other God who acts with such mercy, compassion, and grace for those who wait for Him, am I waiting for Jesus, or am I running ahead giving Him orders, Father help me to listen to your still small voice and just simply trust and obey, help me to tremble in your presence and to be AWE struck by your love for me, AMEN!!!

WOW! God is so good, not only did he send His one and only Son to the Cross to die for me, but He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. God is our refuge, God is our protector, God is our Shield, God goes before us, God goes behind us, and God is right beside us! God says, that because we love him He will rescue us, because we acknowledge His name He will protect us. God says I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. What an amazing God we serve who is above all, who is robed in glory, and who knows me by name! I love Jesus!!! I wonder, do you think we give to Jesus from a heart perspective the way he calls us to? Are we falling in love with our creator daily? Wondering if the challenge in the North American church isn't because of a lack of devotion and heart commitment to our God who really does love and care for us His children! Our world is so lost and yet so often we just tend to go on our Mary way, Yet the Living God desires that all would come to believe in His Son and have life! Jesus never did ministry where he wasn't pointing to the Father first! Let us Point in everything we do to the Father First who loves us and desires for us to Love Him! Learning to Lean on Jesus, Learning to Trust in The Living God!

The first verse of Psalm 23 says this, "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want." Let that sink in for just a moment, the Lord, Jesus Christ the King of Kings, David was declaring was his shepherd, and then to top it off he says and I shall NOT be in WANT! This sounds like a crazy thing to even suggest, but the more I begin to open up my mind and heart to this verse I am totally blown away by the power behind those few words! Since God is the shepherd of my life does that mean all my wants should come from and through His hands? My wants should perhaps no longer be coming through my ability to achieve those wants. My wants when placed in His hands seem to diminish little by little when I pause to think of Jesus being more than enough for me, so with this being said, IF THIS IS TRUE, then wants are satisfied because Jesus is my shepherd and my wants are in His hands, for He more than anything should be my greatest desire! Jesus is my shepherd, therefore I want nothing more, I confess I want to be at that point in my life, I want my wants to simply be for more of HIM! This seems to go back to the word intimacy for this is what the Father is looking for from us His children, and nothing less than our all! Father be more than enough for me, and be my shepherd, so my wants are for more of YOU!
