Last Sunday, the 22nd of August, in the series of teachings on THE BASICS of the faith I spoke on faith and the need to step out and walk by faith. Only then will each of us, as believers, accomplish God’s plans and purpose for our individual lives.
Regretfully the live recording did not record correctly – so the audio copy has to be redone. As I am in the province of Quebec and the state of Vermont for the next while it will not be posted until the 6th of September. However, the written copy of the teaching is already posted on our main web site (www.ralphhoweministries.com).
I told people that with God all things are possible and whatever God has spoken – biblically and prophetically – for us to do for and with Him will come to pass if we believe and walk in obedience.
Since then I found the folllowing which I believe is worth sharing and which tells each of us why we can believe that God will use us to powerfully impact lives.
Why I Believe You Can Do Exactly What God Has Called You To Do!
I believe you can do exactly what God has called you to do!
We serve a God who is a MASTER at calling those who are not “qualified” to do things that seem “impossible!”
I believe that when a person becomes obsessed with the character of God by reading the Word of God and then gets empowered by the Spirit of God…that person is unstoppable and his/her potential is unlimited as long as they will dare to continually follow Jesus and refuse to play it safe! (See Zechariah 4:6-7)
(A quick note on this…you’ve GOT to make sure you’ve heard from God and are not simply getting ready to do something and then begging Him to work!)
I believe God puts dreams and visions in our hearts that are so HUGE that it causes great desperation for HIM and HIS power…thus leading to the world seeing what HE can do through us rather than what we can do “for Him!” (The bigger the revelation the greater the desperation!)
I believe we are all GIFTED to make an impact on the world and NOT simply sit and watch it pass us by.
I believe we are ALL EMPOWERED to make a difference…that fear and timidity does not come from Him, but the power and discipline to execute what He has called us to does. (2 Timothy 1:7)
I believe that YOU are NOT an accident…that He created you with a divine design in mind…that His plans for your life are GREATER than you could imagine, and that by surrendering to HIS plans is the GREATEST freedom on the planet.
I believe that they KEY to discovering what it is that God wants for us is found in Proverbs 3:5-6, that we’ve got to trust Him with EVERYTHING…and if we “hold out on Him” we are actually holding out on ourselves.
I believe God’s plan for your life will not always be easy…but He will always be with you. (Isaiah 43:1-3)
So…what is it that God is calling you to do? OR…put another way, “What would you be willing to attempt for God if you knew you could not fail?”
Life is short…we should get to the end of it with NO REGRETS…so…GO FOR IT!!!
