DEVOTION: “I have looked through my Bible, and I cannot find where God brings disease and sickness. I know there is glory and i know it is the power of God that brings the glory. Yet it is the Devil and not God at all who brings sickness and disease. Why does he? I know this: Satan is God’s whip and if you don’t obey God, God will stand to one side and Satan will devour you. But God will only allow him to devour so much, as was the case with Job. The Lord told Satan, “You may go only so far, and no further. Don’t touch his life” (See Job 2:6) (pg 143)
Pretty interesting paragraph here. Not sure where you stand on this but I do believe that people tend to give Satan a little more credit than he is due.
Our God is greater than anything that we will encounter in this life. Anything.
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars; he gives to all of them their names. Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure. – Psalm 147:3-5
He loads the thick cloud with moisture;the clouds scatter his lightning.They turn around and around by his guidance, to accomplish all that he commands them on the face of the habitable world. Whether for correction or for his land or for love, he causes it to happen. Job 37:13
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
The verses go on and on.
Bottom line. Don’t give credit where credit isn’t due. Out God is greater. Period.
PRAYER: Today, let’s pray about the power of God in our lives. Let’s pray away the impossible and focus on the possible with God.
