Looking at them, Jesus said, “With People it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God. (Mark 10:27 KJV)
When I look back over my life, there were so many things that looked impossible, but I never started from the position of impossibility. I believed if I put one foot in front of the other I could strive to make the impossible possible. It amazes me sometimes when people see the glory and do not know the story. Good old fashion hard work and staying the course works and for me seeking first the kingdom of God and standing on his promises. When the enemy would attempt to saturate me with doubt and discouragement I would be reminded of Gods promises through the word of God and gospel music. Marvin Sapp would sing “be encouraged no matter what’s going on he will make it alright.” Those words would come right on time. Attending church and Bible study gave me the ability to press on no matter what it looked like and sometimes it did not look good but God is a winner at the finishing line and victory became mine.
I encourage you to stop having a defeatist attitude, speak those things as though they were, encourage yourself look up and stop looking down. If you know you have a spirit of laziness, ask God to help you in that area if you lack faith, ask God to increase your faith. If you cannot talk to anyone else go to God in prayer, for the lord already knows and if your sincere the Lord will grant you the desires and wishes of your heart, but you must do the work. I remember when I first opened the training school, everything came together right when I was in need. My mother’s company was changing their office furniture, so I could get the used office furniture the company was giving away. My Aunt passed away and my uncle never got rid of the hospital bed. The bible says the steps of a righteous man are ordered by God. I encourage you to continue to realize all life’s possibilities that awaits you when you know God. Look to the hills from whence comes your help and be assured your help will come from the Lord. God Bless.
