We were depending on another power source. And that's where you are right now. Your power will fail before you can get through what lies ahead. But the generator of the Holy Spirit will just keep on running, and that power is enough! You Get it Ready - #6301 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-mission/you-get-it-ready-6301 2011-03-09T15:10:27-05:00 The size of the preparation often determines the size of the miracle. See, we live in unnecessary poverty because we overestimate the problem and we underestimate God. So, pray as if something God-sized is going to happen. Plan as if something God-sized is going to happen. Budget, and dream as if something God-sized is going to happen. Live as if that obstacle will move like the waters of the Jordan River. Fat By Any Other Name - #6302 http://hutchcraft.com/a-word-with-you/your-hindrances/fat-by-any-other-name-6302 2011-03-09T15:09:26-05:00 We don't like to deal with sin; we like to disguise it. Maybe today would be a good day to pray something like this, "Lord, am I calling sin by a nice name? I don't want to mask my disobedience any longer." Deal with it before God deals with you. What does God call it? See, sin by any other name is still sin. And as the Bible says, "If we would judge ourselves, then we will not be judged." Ability in the Bible - a Christian perspective http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20Peter%204:11&version=NIV 2009-09-04T12:15:30-05:00 Peter writes that we should do all things in the power of Christ. Our abilities are not our own, rather any ability we have should be channeled through God in some way. If we speak, we should speak with the words of God. If we praise we should praise through Jesus. Ron Hutchcraft Ministries - The Kidney Miracle - #5018 http://hutchcraft.com/A-Word-With-You/Your-Relationships/The-Kidney-Miracle-5018 2008-08-07T16:26:19-05:00 It may be that your capacity and your capability is far less than the situation demands, but since when is your capability the deciding factor? Surrender yourself, inadequacy and all, to the Lord your God and expect Him to do the kidney miracle for you, enlarging you to do what you have never done before!
