All things are pos­si­ble

The Progress-Index - - OPINION -

Ev­ery­thing is pos­si­ble for one who be­lieves (read Mark 9:23). Per­haps you too serve in some un­no­ticed place, do­ing noth­ing more than or­di­nary deeds. Oth­ers might think that’s a waste. But brothers and sis­ters, God Almighty wastes noth­ing.

God Almighty, may

I be will­ing to be hid­den and un­known today, yet ready to speak a word to those who are weary. May Your Spirit touch my words and make them Your Words that en­rich and re­fresh oth­ers. Amen.

What­ever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Je­sus Christ (read Colos­sians 3:17).

Dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances may thwart even our best in­ten­tions, sep­a­rat­ing friends from each other for a sea­son. But God Almighty is grow­ing His church through ev­ery dif­fi­culty. We need only be faith­ful and leave the re­sults to Him. God Almighty, we are so prone to be fear­ful when we face op­po­si­tion, yet so of­ten we want to take credit for ev­ery lit­tle suc­cess. Help us see that You are the One who blesses and builds Your Church.

The Helper, the Holy Spirit ... will teach you all things (read John 14:26). In what­ever ways the Holy Spirit, the Helper, has gifted you, let Him use you for His honor. Dear God Almighty, thank You for the gifts You have given me so that I might serve the body of Je­sus Christ. Help me to be faith­ful to use my gifts to bring You glory. Amen. You are a nec­es­sary part of the whole.

In 2008 (Oc­to­ber), af­ter my mother died, I went into a huge de­pres­sion and aban­doned God Almighty mo­men­tar­ily. I des­per­ately needed change and be­gan read­ing the “Bi­ble” ev­ery day in the morn­ing, in the evening, and at night. If it wasn’t for the “Bi­ble” plant­ing seeds of sal­va­tion in my soul, I would still be lost today.
