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 : Do you believe God can do it for you? My dear, God is bigger than every obstacle and mountain confronting you. He can cause your mountains of problems to crumble before you by faith. It is true that humans are limited in one way or another, but God is not limited in any way; and He can do all things no matter the 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. Paul 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 do. Remember, God will do it for you if you truly believe He can. Be wise!

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.

TOPIC : IT IS TIME TO SEARCH FOR GOD
Thursday, January 2, 2020
Bible Verse : You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
LISTEN : Beloved, it is time to search for God. It is time to seek His face. Searching for God does not mean that He is missing, but that, we are disconnected from Him and needs to be reconnected to Him. You cannot find God until you search for Him with all your heart. God is closer to us than we thought, but cannot be seen or found until we are ready to search for Him with passion. A lot of us regularly feel the absence of God around us because we are not conscious of Him. We have not searched for Him with the whole of our hearts, therefore cannot encounter Him. God searches every heart and He knows those who are serious with Him. God is a great God. Therefore, if you must discover Him, you must search for Him with the whole of your heart. Anything short of that, you will remain a stranger to Him and His manifestations. My dear, do not give up striving to know God; instead, continue the search for Him until you find Him at the centre of your life. Be wise!
Prayer : Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love for me. Help me to seek and serve you with all my heart, in Jesus’ name, amen.
