Morning Prayer, Thursday, March 23, 2017 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: SPEAKING AND BELIEVING
Father God, help me to speak and believe even if what is before me looks impossible. Amen
Numbers 13:17-30 and Mark 9:23
“All things are possible to those who believe.” God tells Moses to send out 12 spies to survey the land He has promised to give them. Moses sends them out and waits for their return. They go, look and see. Ten of the men see impossibility. The people in the land are giants. There is no way we can take this land from them. They will annihilate us. That was their mindset and that is what they brought back to the people. They could see no way it was possible that this was the Promise Land. I mentioned this a long time ago but I went on a job interview for my current job. At that time, I did not have the experience and even the person that told me about the job said to me, "You may not want to apply because you are not qualified." Raise your hand if you know that alone you can do nothing but with God, all things are possible." I feel you on that. I prayed about the situation on whether I should apply. God said, "Apply." Went on the interview and turned out the manager was a Christian. We talked mostly about the Lord, and I got the job. God put someone around me who knew all that I didn't know and was more than willing to help me out. Those 10 men could not understand that God had already prepared the way before they arrived in Canaan. The only two of the 12 that understood was Joshua and Caleb. They got it. That house, that car, that job, or that whatever that you are believing God for in your hands impossible. If you allow God to prepare the way for you, all things are possible. We have to start speaking and believing. In fact, the more you speak it the more you will believe it.
