Luke 1:37 ” For nothing is impossible with God.”

God is mighty and strong on our behalf.  There is nothing that God can’t do.  In addressing the Lord, Jeremiah stated, “Nothing is too hard for You.” (Jeremiah 32:17)   The Creator of heaven and earth is not confined to time, place or our limited reasoning.  For our mighty God can attain the unattainable…make the impossible possible, and take the out of the question and answer it with a miracle.

Romans 8:31 ” If God is for us, who can be against us?”

Take a moment to re-read the scripture above and allow it to sink in.  If God is for you…what can possibly oppose you?  If the Lord is over you,  coming to your defense, protecting you, helping and comforting you in times of trouble…what evil can stand before Him?   Isaiah 41:10 states, “So do not fear, for I am with you…I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”  God is greater than any of your fears today…and greater than the evil in this world.

Job 21:22 “Can anyone teach knowledge to God, since He judges even the highest?”

The very source of all truth comes from God.  No one teaches or advises Him.  He is the Supreme Ruler of both heaven and earth…and He governs justly to all.  No one is like our God, not one.  And for those who put their trust in Him…there is the promise of eternal life.

Hebrews 3:4 ” For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.”

We’ve spent several days constructing a retaining wall in the back yard…and I don’t mind saying that strenuous manual labor in the oppressive heat of a Illinois Summer is hard!  But now that it’s done, it was well worth all the sweat.  Genesis 1:1 tells us that, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”   Where we had cement pavers to build with,  God called the universe into being…creating everything we see, smell, and hear out of nothing.  For He is the author and architect of it all…bringing into existence that which was not.

II Chronicles 7:14 ” If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”

The requirements of the Lord are many in this scripture.  The prerequisites He has laid out are strict, fundamental, but necessary.  If we want to see God moving in this world…we need to fulfill our part in this scripture first.  For it says, “Then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  We do our part…then He’ll do His.

Job 5:17 “Blessed is the man whom God corrects; so do not despise the discipline of the Almighty.”

I can still remember one of my Nursing Supervisors in college.  She would stand outside the patient’s room with you asking a million questions about the procedure you were about to carry out.  Did you have everything you needed and  were you well versed in what you were about to do.  But right before you both walked into the room she’d say, “I will only stop you if you are potentially going to hurt the patient.”  It was always said in a quiet, soft voice, but boy did it pack a wallop!  Luckily, she never said a word during any of my procedures, and I gained a wealth of  knowledge from that uncompromising woman.  The Lord is the same way, His discipline is to educate us, not hurt us.  It’s only when we reject and turn away from His correction that we suffer.

Nehemiah 8:2-3 ” So on the first day of the seventh month Ezra the priest brought the Law before the assembly, which was made up of men and women and all who were able to understand. He read it aloud from daybreak till noon as he faced the square before the Water Gate in the presence of the men, women and others who could understand. “

The Israelites had gathered together and asked Ezra to read the Law.  Many had never heard the reading of the Word, for they had been born and raised in Babylonian captivity.  The Lord had been faithful in rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem…He had miraculously  aided them in rebuilding the crumbled walls…but now it was time to rebuild His people.  The  Lord is wanting to rebuild His people again…to reclaim, restore, and re-establish  Believers for His glory.  Now is the time for you to break off the chains of captivity and allow God to begin a new rebuilding project in you.
