Often we let excuses hinder us from achieving something greater in life. The excuses may even seem valid but they are excuses just the same when it comes to being obedient to the will of God. Last night my 11 y/o son preached a short sermon on opportunity. He opened will a powerful quote from Benjamin Franklin, "Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed up in over-alls and looks like work." Steven went on to say the two things that keep us from opportunity is work & fear.
On Sunday morning it's amazing how easy it is to amen the preacher when he's preaching faith and obedience, yet when we walk out the door we leave the message on the altar and don't take it with us. The Bible says that ALL things are possible with God. That preaches good but when it comes to living it out that's a whole different thing. I believe God woke me up after a long hard day & just a little sleep to prepare me and YOU for something big thats on the horizon. And we need to get our minds fixed on The words "I can!" When we realize we CAN, then we WILL! Because with God, ALL things ARE POSSIBLE!
