We of little faith

I’ve been reading Kisses from Katie the past few weeks and I’m completely amazed at Katie’s faith, her heart for God’s people, and God’s power on display in Uganda. Below are some of my thoughts that were inspired by the book. Be blessed!

What if God gives us more than we can handle so that His glory is revealed and we are moved to rely on Him for EVERYTHING?

What if we stopped putting limits on a limitless God?

What if we were more bold in our faith and wholeheartedly believed God can and will do the impossible?

What if we prayed for God to completely overwhelm us with a task that is too great for us to complete and as a result we witnessed His glory unfold before us as the impossible became possible?

How much more would we trust God?

How many more lives would be changed for the better because we said “yes” when the odds were stacked against us and God provided what was needed?

As God’s people, aware of Christ’s victory at the cross, we still deny the power of His name. When we reach what seems to be our breaking point, that is when we’re reminded that we don’t have to be afraid because perfect love casts out ALL fear (1 John 4:18). God is love and He has promised us to never leave us or forsake us (1 John 4:8, Deuteronomy 31:6). When God promises something He keeps it. That doesn’t mean life is going to be rainbows and butterflies everyday, but it does mean that when we are at our wits end, God’s arms are wrapped tightly around us. Embrace the moments when you are given more than you can handle because in those moments you have to rely on Him more than you ever have before. In those moments, He is still holding you and His embrace is the most comforting and peaceful place we will EVER be.
