Nothing Else Will Work.

Nothing Else Will Work.

When was the last time something was too hard for God? Does He have you? Is He watching over you? Is there ever a time when He arrived too late?
Does He have any plans for your life? Is everything perfect for you?
Try to tell me how you did anything that the Lord couldn’t see.
He parted the Red Sea for Moses and Israel in the Book of Exodus
He revealed His Presence to Moses on Mount Horeb.
He revealed His Power and His Voice to Elijah on Mount Horeb.
He caused a borrowed ax to float for Elisha.
He answered Elijah with fire from Heaven to consume the sacrifice he offered.
He revealed the intent of a wicked king that wanted to attack the children of Israel.
He revealed the coming Messiah to the prophets.
He sent the ravens during a severe drought to feed Elijah.
He answered Elijah’s cry to raise a dead child to life.
Everything you have read so far was the result of desperate cries to the Lord.
He sent forth His Word to heal and deliver from all of our destruction.
That Word became flesh and dwelt among us
We behold His Glory; the Glory of the only begotten Son of the Father, full of Grace and truth.
The Word That Was sent has a Name we have learned to love:
Jesus….the Son of God….Emmanuel….God with us.
He still heals the sick, still cleanses the lepers, He still raises the dead, He still is preaching to the poor, He still says “blessed is he who is not offended in Me.”
Are you feeling offended about where you are right now?
He is saying to you; “Call upon Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things that you know not.”
He says to you: “I will never leave you; neither will I forsake you.”
He still invites you no matter how offended you may feel.
He is still calling you by your name.
He still wants you, He still desires your heart to believe that He loves you.
He will be showing you what you couldn’t possibly find without Him.
He will be revealing His will for your life when you seek Him, and search for Him with your whole heart.
Nothing else will work.
It will not be by your own power;
It will not be by your own strength;
“It will be by My Spirit, says the Lord.”
“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
“I have seen his ways, and I will heal him.”
“Hereby are you cleansed, by the Word that I have spoken unto you.”
“Seek first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness, and all of these things will be added unto you.”
Now do you know Who Loves you? You are extremely important to Him.
