Heaven Pt. 49

“Thy fathers went down into Egypt with threescore and ten persons; and now the LORD thy God hath made thee as the stars of heaven for multitude” Deut. 10:22 KJV

Remember Israel started as one small insignificant family tossed into a sea of troubled nations. Now it is the hinge on which the door to eternity hangs.

God’s chosen vessel is almost always the underdog, the dark horse, the runner lagging behind from the start of the race. The success of God’s ventures always rely on the inability and incompetence of God’s partners in business and the miracle of God.

So if God has made you a promise and you don’t see anyway in the natural for the thing to come to pass, relax that’s just you standing at the headwaters of God’s river. Take a step of faith into the river and see where the waters take you. It probably won’t be a comfortable ride, it will probably take you through some uncharted territory you never would have chosen. In the end it will be the great adventure He chose for you!

  1. This is a great word today. It confirms what I was telling one of my sisters in Christ yesterday, that God would not have put her there if He did not mean to equip her to do His work. Please help me pray against the spirit of discouragement. A-men!!!

  2. When you say… “The success of God’s ventures always rely on the inability and incompetence of God’s partners in business and the miracle of God”, it is such a blessing. This means that when the Lord calls me to service, I should forget my incompetence and simply rely on HIm to work a miracle! What a great thought! Lord bless you!

    Hello Pastor J.. what a good and encouraging word for me today! Paulette and I were just discussing this a few minutes ago. You pray and wait,pray and wait over and over until you just get so tired because it feels just like God is not listening. Well he told us He is Still Able,for I sure don’t see anyway in the natural for what God promised me.So I need to “relax” and do some more waiting,because “Great Is His Faithfulness”!!
    Love you Pastor P. 😀

  4. What an amazing God we serve! He calls us to do something for Him . . . and then HE does it, using our bodies, our minds etc. Incredible! but we see it over and over again in our lives, as “we” (not) accomplish something we could not possibly do of our own selves. We need to be more “rubber band” people – willing to be stretched to be of any use.

    What an amazing God.

  5. God bless you Pastor J! What an encouraging and thought-provoking word today! I was definitely blessed by it, as well as the accompanying comments! Beautiful discussion!
