Verse Of The Day : Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27
LISTEN : Humans are limited in one way or another, but God is not limited in any way; and He can do all things without any successful opposition. Where God is involved no opposition can prevail against His plans. He succeeds in what He does, because no one is too powerful to stand in His ways and not be crushed. Beloved, power lies with God. Therefore, if God can do all things, it means that, we can have what we ask of Him if we ask in faith and in line with His will. My dear, you should learn to do what you can, and God will do what you can’t. When you walk in faith with God, what you can’t do will eventually become what you can do. The Bible says, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.“ (Philippians 4:13). My dear, the strength to do what you can’t do is from God. God is the strength of the weak and the hope of the hopeless. When it is established that, you have reached the limit of your struggle for survival and knows nothing else to do, God will strengthen you for exploit. When you put your trust in Him He will give you what you ask of Him. Do you believe that? The Bible says, “Jesus said unto him, If you can believe, all things are possible to him that believes.“ (Mark 9:23). Beloved, nothing is impossible to achieve if you can believe. So, don’t give up. Rather, do what you can do, and God will do what you can’t. Be wise!
Having read today’s devotional, what is expected of you?
1. Believe the word of God and always act in line with His will.
2. Do what you can do, and God will do what you can’t.
3. Always remember that, if God is for you no one can prevail against you.
4. Believe what God says about you and stop doubting His promises to you.
Prayer : Almighty God, You are the most powerful God. Therefore, help us to trust our inabilities in your hands, in Jesus’ name, amen!

TOPIC : LACK OF WISDOM HINDERS SUCCESS
Bible Verse : Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs 4:7
LISTEN : It is difficult to make progress without wisdom and understanding. Lack of understanding of a thing hinders success. My dear, you are limited by what you don’t know. Just as physical blindness hinders acceleration, so does lack of wisdom hinders success. Wisdom is a vital aspect of life (Proverbs 4:7). Therefore, you should do all you can to acquire wisdom (Proverbs 23:23). Beloved, don’t just exist, rather exists with wisdom and understanding. Wisdom makes you a solution provider and blesses you with favours. Friend, God is willing to give you wisdom and understanding if you are willing to ask of Him in faith (James 1:5-7). So, don’t live in ignorance, rather live in full knowledge of all that God wants you to know about life and eternity. Be wise!
Prayer : Dear Lord, You are God of wisdom. Bless me with wisdom, knowledge and understanding, in Jesus’ name, amen!
