ADVENTURING WITH GOD! (Part #2) 8-2-2015

Have you ever wondered, as I have; what can God do with my life? This has crossed my mind especially as I am faced with my weaknesses and failures. God speaks to a man (Abraham), whose wife is passed her child bearing age, that she will have a son and through this child, Isaac, God will bless the whole world. That promise was, and is being, fulfilled!  God’s strength (grace) is made perfect in weakness.

“(God) has saved us and called us to a holy life---not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace.  This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time…” (2 Tim.1:9 NIV) “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Eph.2:10 NIV)  We were chosen, and given the ability from God, before the world began, to accomplish something worthwhile in our generation.. This is already settled!.

How can we enter in?  We are called to trust and follow the one who forgave us and gave us a new life within. When we feel weak, powerless, hopeless, even a failure, God wants us to keep trusting him that he will lead and help us to fulfil his eternal purpose(s) that he has already planned!  Failure only comes by quitting!

A short chorus!  “God will make a way where there seems to be no way.  He works in ways we cannot see. He will make a way for me. He will be my guide; walking closely by my side. With love and strength for each new day, He will make a way!”  God’s way is by his GRACE. He works in and through us as we trust him! He will not fail!
