God can do anything! [+] Monday E-Devotion

Matthew 19:26

Jesus looked at them intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible."

Do you really believe that God can do anything?  Prove it.  Think through what you have seen him do and what you have experienced.  Now, spend a few minutes thinking about what others have told you God did in their lives.  

We have the proof.  God is able.  Our minds cannot hold him back.  People cannot put God in a box.  He can heal the worst diseases.  He can fixed the biggest, baddest broken situation.  Our God can do anything, and it is time for us to believe God and let Him work in and through our lives.

Here is one of The Community Core statements ... we are to get the attention of our community and while we have their attention, tell them about Jesus

You can get people's attention in many ways.  But what do you do when you have their attention?  Why not do the greatest good?  Tell them about the one who will make the biggest difference for eternity?  Here is what Jesus said about it:

John 12:32

And when I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw everyone to myself.

Jesus is the one that changes lives.  It is not our job to change lives.  Pointing people to Him and opening the lines of communication is our job.  What has God done in your life that you need to tell others about?  Maybe your testimony is a bit like mine.  I love this verse ...

Luke 1:74

We have been rescued from our enemies so we can serve God without fear,

God rescued me.  How about you?  We can serve Him without fear, and we must realize that God can do anything!
