Whose Faith Follow
God asks me to go to Nineveh, that great city
God asks me to bless Him when I am full of sores
When my children have all been killed
And all my friends have turned against me
God asks me to build a ship on dry land
Give my firstborn and only son for a sacrifice
He asks me to take a city by walking in circles around it shouting
He asks me to bring water from a rock
To expect bread to fall from heaven to feed me
He asks me to feed 5,000 with just five loaves of bread
and two small fish
Kill a giant with one small stone
Move to a strange land with a people I do not know
God asks me, who studders and stammers, to go before pharoah
and lead one million + slaves out of an empire
with a shepherd staff
He asks me to walk across the sea on dry land
He asks me to jump into the fiery furnace
rather than to worship any other God
Wash seven times in a river to be healed
Remove a mountain with my word
Catch multitudes of fish when there are none
Walk on water
Then, He asks me to dream when there is no hope
To have faith when there is no way out
Run the race without limbs
Love my enemy
Bless those who curse me
Do good to those who persecute me
Be a light in darkness when I have no light
Yea, I can do all things through Christ
Who strengthens me
Who gave Himself for me
For we are more than conquerors through Him
Who loves us and gave Himself for us.
Therefore, let us go forth with confidence!
Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Remember when the children of Israel were trapped at the edge of the Red Sea:
Exodus 14:15 And the LORD said unto Moses….speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward!!
For Today: Let’s consider these great miracles of God that were recorded throughout history for us to believe and have faith that we can deal with any trial that is set before us, even when there seems to be no solution. As Pentecost approaches let’s ponder these verses and the power of our great God!
Mark 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
