We say they want to be “Christ-like”, well Christ considered himself meek and humble. To humble yourself is to position yourself and have a willingness to listen to the commands and/or the correction of the Lord, and obey His voice.
Ephesians 6:13-18 The Message
Be prepared. You’re up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can g…et, every weapon God has issued, so that when it’s all over but the shouting you’ll still be on your feet. Truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You’ll need them throughout your life. God’s Word is an indispensable weapon. In the same way, prayer is essential in this ongoing warfare. Pray hard and long. Pray for your brothers and sisters. Keep your eyes open. Keep each other’s spirits up so that no one falls behind or drops out.
God’s word is always creative. When God speaks he places a demand on his Word and gives it the ability to create, respond, and accomplish what he desires “beginning to end”. Creation is simply the productive response to his voice. To create is using the ability to make or think of new things which didn’t previously exist. At one time, “YOU” were impossible & you didn’t exist, but when God spoke & breathed life into you all of a sudden you were c…reated.The impossible became possible!
God wants to do something new with you and through you. The new is unfamiliar territory. It may be uncomfortable, and sometimes unpleasant causing us to doubt or worry if we don’t remind ourselves who he is. When God decides it’s time, he makes impossible-possible. Believing God is able settles ALL the issues we will ever face in life. Remember these three words…”GOD IS ABLE”. -Howard
