Growing Faith in God’s Ability (PART 2) 11-04-16


(CLICK THE TITLE) Good morning and praise the Lord for another day and another chance to get this thing we call life going in the right direction. Today is part 2 as we continue to consume the Word of God.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, I come before You on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ. I pray that our work will be a lasting monument to Your faithfulness in our lives. Whether it is taking care of children, comforting a grieving neighbor, visiting a sick friend, teaching a class, developing a special project, managing money, or whatever the task, show us if it is bringing glory to You. If it is not, help us to recognize how and what we should be doing or not doing. If it is, then give us the strength to keep on doing what pleases You. Please give us the desire and faith to give the first fruits of our increases to You. May You be glorified God, the source of all blessings. In the matchless Jesus I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

Growing Faith in God’s Ability

Part 2

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?”


Genesis 18:1-14

1.  The Lord appeared again to Abraham while he was living in the oak grove at Mamre. This is the way it happened: One hot summer afternoon as he was sitting in the opening of his tent, 2.  he suddenly noticed three men coming toward him. He sprang up and ran to meet them and welcomed them. 3.  “Sirs,” he said, “please don’t go any further. Stop awhile and rest here in the shade of this tree while I get water to refresh your feet, 5.  and a bite to eat to strengthen you. Do stay awhile before continuing your journey.”“All right,” they said, “do as you have said.”

6.  Then Abraham ran back to the tent and said to Sarah, “Quick! Mix up some pancakes! Use your best flour, and make enough for the three of them!” 7.  Then he ran out to the herd and selected a fat calf and told a servant to hurry and butcher it. 8.  Soon, taking them cheese and milk and the roast veal, he set it before the men and stood beneath the trees beside them as they ate. 9.  “Where is Sarah, your wife?” they asked him.“In the tent,” Abraham replied. 10.  Then the Lord said, “Next year I will give you and Sarah a son!” (Sarah was listening from the tent door behind him.) 11.  Now Abraham and Sarah were both very old, and Sarah was long since past the time when she could have a baby. 12.  So Sarah laughed silently. “A woman my age have a baby?” she scoffed to herself. “And with a husband as old as mine?” 13.  Then God said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say `Can an old woman like me have a baby?’ 14.  Is anything too hard for God? Next year, just as I told you, I will certainly see to it that Sarah has a son.”

Quote of the Day

Humans need Jesus Christ as a necessity and not as a luxury. You may be pleased to have flowers, but you must have bread…. Jesus is not a phenomenon, He is bread: Christ is not a curiosity, He is water. As surely as we cannot live without bread, we cannot live truly without Christ: If we know not Christ we are not living, our movement is a mechanical flutter, our pulse is but the stirring of an animal life.
