ALIVE WORD: Dare to believe God – Part 2

The Richardsons

“Is there any thing too hard for the Lord?”–Genesis 18:14a

You may be asking yourself today, “Lord, why me?” But the question I ask you is, “Why not you?” God is your Father and He knows what you can go through. He promised never to give you more than you’re able to bear. The fact that you’re going through it means that He knows that with His help you’ll come through it. The fire that you’re in today has a purpose, and when the purpose is fulfilled, God will make a way of escape for you. Many others today wish they were going through what you’re going through because their fire is ten times greater than your fire. Instead of looking at the problems and magnifying them, begin to look at all that God has blessed you with and begin to give him thanks and praise for what He’s done, what He’s doing, and what He’s about to do. Magnify the Lord and exalt His name.

Some of you today are facing situations with which God alone can help you. If man could have helped, you would have already gotten the help. Only God can, and only God will come through for you. In this way, when your breakthrough comes, it is only to God that you can give the glory.

You will receive your breakthroughs if you dare to believe God. You cannot afford to doubt or give up. You’re on the brink of a miracle. You’re about to give birth. Yes, you might have been waiting a long time, but remember Sarah. When she learned that she would have a son, she laughed because humanly speaking it was impossible. But the reply she received was, “Is any thing too hard for the Lord?” My question for you today is the same: “Is any thing too hard for the Lord?” Do you think that the God who created the entire universe and all that’s in it cannot hear and answer your prayer? God told Abraham that at the time appointed He would return, and God did just as He said. He is always true to His Word. God has an appointed time for you.

In Psalm 37:25 David said, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread.” No matter what your need is today, believe with all your heart that God has made provision in His Word to supply your need. Do not allow anything or anyone to make you doubt that God is coming through for you.

If you’re frustrated and in despair because it seems like God is just not showing up, you need to allow the peace of God to reign in you. How is this done? Take your mind off the problem and put in on the Word of God. Isaiah 26:3 states “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee; because he trusteth in thee.” This peace doesn’t come automatically—it takes an effort—but it is possible. God will never ask us to do something that is not possible. Renew your mind with the Word of God. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). Do not speak forth anything negative about what you’re believing God for. If you do you will negate your prayers.

So, if your situation seems impossible and you know that God and God alone can help you, you’re a good candidate for a miracle. Rejoice! Dare to believe God and receive your miracle!

    Dare to believe God? Well maybe 25 years ago I would have said I do not know. Even for a five year period. after September 1998, when God filled with the indwelling of His Holy Spirit, I doubted. But from January 2003 to January 2004, God took my faith in Him by the tail, and today, I wouldn’t dare doubt the Love and Power of God in my Life.

    God must put us through training and discipline because of His Love for us. “I will rebuke and chasten those I love” Revelation 3:19. Because God is Spirit and we must know Life in the Spirit in order to relate to Him.

    One of God’s training and discipline in my Life was to cut off my hearing ability when I needed it most–2000 -2010. Yes, for the past ten years, I have been through the most difficult stages in my Life–not being to communicate with people face to face on the phone. I was cut off from listening to music, which I loved so much, and I eventually came to hate watching television, socializing with friends, and even spending time with my immediate family. All of this happened to me because of severe hearing loss.

    But guess what? After ten of training and discipline through hearing loss, God decided that I had been through enough. After five years of hoping to be able to hear again, it has happened. I received a cochlea implant about eight weeks ago, and now I am beginning to hear again. Rehabilitation will take a few months, but the important thing is that I am going to be again, just as normal as anyone with a normal hearing ability.

    Dare to believe God. This implant would cost a person who was rich an arm and leg, I did not have to pay a dime, because I am not a rich person. God has given me the most expensive material gift most people will ever receive.

    Dare to believe God? For the ten years that God used my hearing ability to discipline and train me to know Life in the Spirit–the Life of Love–God taught me how to hear His voice, even if I could not hear the voice of human beings. Today, I know God, in Jesus Christ, because of the teachings and guidance of His Holy Spirit, through the wisdom and understanding of faith.

    I could go on and on to assure you that there is nothing that God Almighty cannot do. But I would have to write you a book.
