"Be still and know that I am God." God ~ Psalm 46:10

Wednesday, April 27, 2011


I received the following in an e-mail a while back and found the message so powerful that I hung onto it. I take it out and read it every once in a while, and it always nourishes my heart and spirit. I wanted to pass it on in hopes that it will lift you up as well:

You say: 'It's impossible'
God says: All things are possible 
( Luke 18:27) 

 You say: 'I'm too tired'
God says: I will give you rest
( Matthew 11:28-30) 
You say: 'Nobody really loves me'
God says: I love you
( John 3:1 6 & John 3:34 ) 

 You say: 'I can't go on' 
God says: My grace is sufficient
(II Corinthians 12:9 & Psalm 91:15) 
You say: 'I can't figure things out'
God says: I will direct your steps
(Proverbs 3:5- 6) 
 You say: 'I can't do it'
God says: You can do all things
( Philippians 4:13)

You say: 'I'm not able'
God says: I am able
(II Corinthians 9:8)

You say:'It's not worth it'
God says: It will be worth it
(Roman 8:28 ) 

 You say: 'I can't forgive myself'
God says: I Forgive you
(I John 1:9 & Romans 8:1) 

 You say: 'I can't manage'
God says: I will supply all your needs
( Philippians 4:19) 
 You say: 'I'm afraid'
God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear
( II Timothy 1:7)
 You say: 'I'm always worried and frustrated'
God says: Cast all your cares on ME
(I Peter 5:7) 

 You say: 'I'm not smart enough'
God says: I give you wisdom
(I Corinthians 1:30) 

 You say: 'I feel all alone'
God says: I will never leave you or forsake you 
(Hebrews 13:5) 

 Consider passing this on. You never know who may be in need. The first sentence is pretty powerful!

Father, God, bless all my friends in whatever it is that you know they may need this day! And may their lives be full of your peace, prosperity and power as they seek to have a closer relationship with you. Amen.
