My dear brothers and sisters, this summer has been quite an adventure for me. I have been to the hospital on four separate occasions. Presently, I have spent a good portion of this week in the hospital with a serious bacterial infection and a broken TV. Come on, I can handle the sickness, but a broken TV?
The scary part is that even as I am writing this I am taking the most powerful oral antibiotic out there for my cellulitis, but it doesn’t seem to be helping.
All of the above has made me feel totally helpless. But I soon realized that this is exactly the position that God wants me in. With no TV, I picked up a book called Holy Ambition by Chip Ingran, and it reminded me that my God is the God of the helpless. In fact when we seek God in our helplessness, we actually become dangerous to the enemies of God because He loves to work his power through those who humbly acknowledge that they are not in control of their lives. Wow! Just thinking about this fact totally reinvigorated my spirits, and I am trusting Jesus for miraculous results. Keep posted.
It’s not a matter of what circumstances we are going through, but the issue is how big we think our God is. So how big is your God?
Bible Verse of Day
~But those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint~ Isaiah 40:31
