Ask Him for the impossible!

When we are dealing with the things of God, we are dealing with impossibilities, because the Bible says that the things which are impossible with men are possible with God. Over the years, I have learnt that if you are going to ask God for something, ask Him for the impossible! When you are praying for something that is possible, your own mind recognises that it’s possible, it can happen. The power of God is absolutely without limits! … God’s power is as big as our ability to believe.

David Hathaway

Walk on the water

Sometimes, rather than asking Jesus to take away the storm, it’s more appropriate to walk towards Him in the midst of the storm.

He is calling you to Himself. Leave the familiar. Step out of your boat, even though the storm is raging. Walk towards Jesus. He’s right there, beckoning you to come to Him.

God’s great desire

God’s great desire is to share his identity and his nature with us. He wants us to know and have his love, his purpose and his agenda so we can partner with him and be driven by what drives him.

– Shawn Bolz, Translating God

Shifting focus to God

“Here’s what I want you to do: Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God. Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage. The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.”
[Matthew 6:6]
