“…with God all things are possible”
(Matthew 19:26, NIV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
I had a gentleman tell me not
long ago that his business was very, very slow. It looked like he would go
under. He owned a small manufacturing company with one main competitor in town,
a national company that was bigger with more resources. With the economy down,
it made it harder and harder for him to stay open. This man was flexible about
what he should do next, but he really believed he was in the business God
wanted him to be in. So, he kept praying, believing and hoping; and instead of
considering his circumstances, he considered his God. And just when he thought
he was going to have to close down, his main competitor had a change in
leadership and direction and decided to pull out of this market. Now he’s
breaking all kinds of records.
Friend, today I want to
encourage you. If there’s something coming against you, consider your God. He
has a way to meet every one of your needs. You may not be able to beat the
competition in the natural, but God can simply remove the competition. He wants
to give you His favor. He wants to give you the advantage for success. Trust
Him and believe because with God, all things are possible.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father God, today I put my trust in You. I know that You are
faithful and have good things in store for my future. Thank You for giving me
patience to stand and see Your promises come to pass in every area of my life!
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
