UNLIMITED, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 8/27/19 (Across my desk this evening.)
|“And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body…He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” (Romans 4:19-21, NKJV)|
|Consider Your God|
Abraham, who is known as our father in the faith, had many obstacles coming against the promise of God in his life. God told him that he would be “the father of many nations.” Abraham was over ninety years old before he ever saw that promise begin to come to pass. This Scripture tells us that He didn’t consider his body. He didn’t think and meditate on all the reasons why he couldn’t be the father of many nations. No, he considered and thought about the strength and ability of God! He thought about God’s faithfulness and gave praise and glory to Him. The faith that Abraham exercised opened the door for God to do mighty things in and through Him.
Today, what are you believing God for? Does it seem impossible? Sometimes there’s no logical reason to have hope. There may be many reasons your situation will never work out. Consider your God. Consider His Word. Consider His faithfulness. Just like Abraham, you’ll grow strong in faith as you give glory to God. Trust Him today and experience the victory He has in store for you tomorrow!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for Your faithfulness and strength at work in my life today. I choose to consider Your ability over my circumstance. I choose to trust You and give You praise, honor and glory, now and always in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
Ok, so in what way is GOD not UNLIMITED???? So the scriptures tell us that HE never changes, He is the same everyday. He does not have good days and bad days.
When HE gives a gift he never takes it back, HE never repents.
He does not manipulate to get HIS way. He tell us the truth and never violates our free will. In one place HE says that HE is not willing that any should go to hell and in another place he says that only a few will find the Kingdom of God and get to go to heaven. (Freewill is absolutely necessary for LOVE to exist at all. To learn to love ourselves, HIM and others is the primary reason we have been created.) Before honor is humility…. and GOD gives GRACE to the humble (obedient)…
Christ Jesus could not do many mighty works in HIS home town due to the unbelief. Also God can not be tested or tempted and of course HE can not die. And God can not break HIS promises.
But HE can do what we have faith for HIM to do in righteousness. By making Christ Jesus LORD we can always have the victory if we are keeping HIS commandments. James reminds us that the prayers of a righteous man get answered So it is a good investment of time to find out what HE expects of us like good kids and then to do so. Then to ask for the things that we need for ourselves and others. There is a verse like this that shares with us that unless we behave like good little children we will not get into the kingdom of heaven. Hebrews 11, is a great chapter on how to receive from GOD.
Last Friday was a very peaceful and lovely time of gathering at our little house church in Kealia. Next Friday hope to spend some time in the little letter by JUDE. Also my edited copy of “Keys To The Kingdom” is up on our web site now at: www.Trinity-Aloha.org (as a link.) If you see any typo’s or stuff that is not right, please get back to me. Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<><
THERE IS BUT ONE CHURCH OF CHRIST JESUS AND ALL WHO LOVE AND OBEY HIM ARE MEMBERS….
