Verse Of The Day : Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
LISTEN : God is the strength of the weak and hope of the hopeless. He is the Almighty and can do all things. There’s nothing anywhere that is beyond His power. Everyone and everything is under His control. As a matter of fact, humans are limited in one way or another, but God is not limited in any way; and He can do all things without any successful opposition. Where God is involved no opposition can prevail against His plans. Beloved, power lies with God. Therefore, if God can do all things, it means that, we can have what we ask of Him if we ask in faith and in line with His will. My dear, you should learn to do what you can, and God will do what you’re not able to do. When you walk in faith with God, what you can’t do will eventually become what you can do with ease. The Bible says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.“(Philippians 4:13). This means that, the strength to do what you can’t do is from God. God is the strength of the weak and the hope of the hopeless. When it’s established that, you’ve reached the limit of your struggle for survival and knows nothing else to do, God will strengthen you for exploit. When you put your trust in Him He will give you what you ask of Him. Do you believe that? The Bible says, “Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.“ (Mark 9:23). Beloved, nothing is impossible to achieve if you can believe. So, don’t give up. Rather, do what you can do, and God will do what you can’t do. Remember, God is the strength of the weak and the hope of the hopeless. Be wise!

1. Believe the word of God that you’re strong and always act in line with His will.
2. Do what you can do, and God will do what you’re not able to do.

TOPIC : DO IT FROM YOUR HEART
Saturday, April 11, 2020
Bible Verse : Whatever you are doing, work at it with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not for people. Colossians 3:23 (NET).
LISTEN : You can’t please God if what you do for Him is not from your heart. Besides, you will limit yourself if you are not sincere with God. On the other hand, we prosper when we serve and give to Him with all our hearts. My dear, when you serve or give, don’t do it with eye-service – just trying to gain men’ approval, instead, do it from your heart as unto the Lord. The Bible says that, what you do should be done heartily (Colosians 3:23 KJV). That is, it should be done with all your heart. Whatever you do without involving your heart, you’re not doing it for God. When you serve, you must serve with your heart. When you give, you must give with your heart, too. In 2 Chronicles 31:21, Hezekiah gave his resources and services to the house of God with all his heart; and God made him to prosper. In the same way, when you serve God with all your heart He will make you to prosper. Beloved, nothing can stop God’s plan for your life if you are obedient to Him and serve Him with all your heart. Therefore, whatever you do, whether for God or man, do it from your heart. Be wise!
Prayer : Dear Lord, help me to serve you with all my heart, amen!
