“Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.”
God loves us to partner with Him in what is seemingly impossible. It indicates true greatness of faith to accomplish things that are impossible without Him.
It portrays great courage and desperation and an entering into belief of promises made.
We are not spectators we are activators, catalysts. We come from a place of hunger to be proactive.
The enemy attacks anything of value.
We have a barometer of that value in seeing what is targeted and under attack at any time.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.“
This is the place we can proactively battle and break off demon attack and call forth angelic assignments to succeed.
God calls us to assignments asking us to lead others into His promises.
Although we are asked, sometimes we have no idea where, what or why we just know and have to move in faith.
Abram was asked to leave his home and lead his people to an unknown place that God would show him. Only by operating in faith could he accomplish this.
“Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.”
That trust and faith was again necessary when God said that he would father many generations when he and Sarai were past child bearing age and all previous attempts had failed.
“And the Lord brought Abram outside [his tent into the night] and said, “Look now toward the heavens and count the stars—if you are able to count them.” Then He said to him, “So [numerous] shall your descendants be.”
Or when Jesus told the experienced fishermen to cast their nets on the other side of the boat after their efforts all night had failed.
The impossible to us is possible with God . We are limited if we laugh, or make excuses or refuse.
Whatever God is really doing will be bigger than we can imagine because He is more and vast.
We can only believe what God says because we would say it was impossible. When it manifests glory can only be His never ours.
When we submit to seeing how inadequate we are we can genuinely put our confidence in Him.
He is outrageous in what He can do, what He can achieve . We cannot work it out our own way. Whatever we ask He works it out better.
We never have the option of being disappointed when we realise that God desires more for us than we could want for ourselves.
He stretches us beyond our capacity. He only wants our ‘yes’.
His word and promise for us is not for us to sit on in an attempt to incubate it ourselves.
There is never a sense of drudgery. Nothing is impossible. We go forward in joy, expectation and blessings. Action causes the manifestation to move forwards always.
Typically it is us crying out for encounter of His presence and to see His face when it is always there. It is Jesus wanting to encounter us and draw us face to face and we are not always present.
Like things attract. Elijah was a man just like us.
He discovered that he had ability to make the words, God had given Him, his words and therefore his prayers resulted in action. His words caused it to rain or be dry.
What God has said to us, has become our word to say. The diminished body must serve to fulfil His word.
“Let the weak say, “I am strong!””
As greater darkness arises in the word, greater light arises on us and Greater glory on God.
The illustration shows Jesus calling us to partner in His great Glory. His light becoming our light that shines forth in the darkness of the world. The world reaching out for what they recognise as what they want. Light emanating to push back the darkness
