Let go of the old
Embrace the new
Trust the Lord

Philippians 3:12-14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 Not that I have already obtained it [this goal of being Christlike] or have already been made perfect, but I actively press on so that I may take hold of that [perfection] for which Christ Jesus took hold of me and made me His own. 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Psalm 97:11 Amplified Bible (AMP)
11 Light is sown [like seed] for the righteous and illuminates their path, and [irrepressible] joy [is spread] for the upright in heart [who delight in His favor and protection].

Jesus IS Able!

May 25, 2019

A Song:
Jesus is able, more than able –Eph 3:20
To do the impossible –Lk 1:36-37
His love is high enough
Wide enough
Deep enough –Eph 3:19
To care for you and me –1Pe 5:7
TODAY!

.
Are you facing a seemingly impossible situation? It might be a relationship that seems beyond repair, or a health issue, finances or something else that seems impossible to change. BUT – no matter how bad things look. Nothing is ever too hard or impossible with God. The power of His love makes all things possible! He is able to do far more than all we can ask or imagine!
.
Surrender all to the Lord – He cares for you.
.
1Peter 5:5-7 NET … God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may lift you up in due time. 7 Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.
.
Psalm 95:6-7 NET … Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker. 7 For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. TODAY, if only you would hear His voice {and obey Him}!
.

.
Ephesians 3:14-21 New Living Translation (NLT)
Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Growth
14 When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, 15 the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. 16 I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. 17 Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. 18 And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. 19 May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
.
20 Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. 21 Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.

    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna
  • He will quiet you[02790] = make silent, give rest

Word Study

From Ps 3:3 bible hub{Barnes Notes}

  • My shield – Not only in these dangers, but in all dangers. The declaration here has a general form, as if he could trust in Him at all times.
  • My glory – My honor, or the source of my honor. That is, He bestows upon me all the honor that I have, and it is my glory that I may put my trust in Him.
  • The lifter up of my head – The head, in time of trouble and sorrow is naturally bowed down, as if overpowered with the weight of affliction. Psalm 35:14 : “I bowed down heavily as one that mourneth for his mother;” (Ps 38:6;Ps 42:5; Ps 44:25; Ps 57:6; Jn 19:30) To lift up the head, therefore, or to raise one up, is to relieve his distresses, or to take away his troubles. Such a helper, David says, he had always found God to be, and he looks to Him as one who is able to help him still.
