To God Be The Glory 1

"I want to talk about what happens when Jesus gives you a command or an invitation or simply calls you to do something or go somewhere.

When Jesus calls you from where you are, physically, emotionally, spiritually or mentally, He gives you all the components you need to fulfill the task.
He gives you the possibility - in that with God all things are possible.
He gives you the provision – God will supply the resources.
He gives you the protection - God protects you as He goes through it with you 
He gives you power – God provides supernatural intervention

Go with me if you would to Matthew Chapter 14.  We will start reading at verse 13.  John had just been beheaded.  The disciples had buried John.  Starting at verse 13.
“When Jesus heard of it, He departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard thereof, they followed Him on foot out of the cities.
V14 And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.
V15 And when it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. 
V16 But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart: give ye them to eat.”

“Give them to eat”.  Before we go any further, I want you to see how this principle works.  Because if your faith doesn’t kick in and circumvent your natural mind, you will not believe this story – And if you cannot believe this story, you won’t believe God will intervene in your story and do the impossible. God gives you the possibility

Note: Is that who you are, someone who doesn't buy into the God thing. You believe parts of the Bible because it makes sense, but you also believe that it is primarily an allegory, at best. You are not sure about any of it, but so many people around you have succumbed to its nectar. If the stories in the Bible are just nice stories to you, don't waste you time reading my blog. There is nothing here for you.
