I always try to throw more reasons why I can do something into the mix than I do the reasons I can’t. You should also. Let’s face it, life can be tough, but you can always be tougher. If you look hard enough, and deep enough, you will find more reasons why you can do what you need to do than reasons why you can’t.
Anne Frank once said, “Everyone has inside them a piece of good news. The good news is you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is.” I love that quote. God has placed greatness inside of you because as a Christ follower, you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you. It just can’t get greater than that.
The impossible that stands in front of you is confronted with the power of the Holy Spirit. You must remember that nothing is impossible with God. What He has called you to, He will get you through. God inside of you knows no impossible situations. He is the God of all things possible. What is impossible for you is just another opportunity for Him to show off for His glory.
The Holy Spirit living on the inside of you makes you a champion, and a champion gets up, even when his or her world is falling apart, and uses the word CAN’T as a steppingstone. When you stand up in the power of the Holy Spirit, that is the moment the tide begins to turn. The tide of the ocean changes on a timetable. The tide is faithful to do so, because God who is in control is faithful.
It has been said, “Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” Now get out there and try again! You won’t regret it. In every crisis, there is an opportunity to let God show off through you.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
