A Word for Today: POSSIBLE

Good morning, Beloved. This verse excites me, so please bare with me as I elaborate a little.

God has me on a journey of discovery. I am learning to greater depths than ever before just how faithful God is to be strength in my weakness. In an area of lifelong struggle, I have never experienced such freedom as now, because God faithfully responds to my, “I can’t. Will You?” God responds every time with “Gladly!” And HE DOES IT THROUGH ME. Praise the Lord!

It is becoming easier with each act of surrender to allow God full control in my weakness, and I get the benefit of victory in His strength.

The thing I am learning is this: I have NO STRENGTH. Not really. Not in any area of my life. My greatest strengths are NOTHING compared to His, and I can truly do nothing apart from Him: AND He can best accomplish through me when I die so He can live. When I realize “Lord, I can’t. Will You?”, then I experience true Strength. God wants me – us, Beloved – to realize that with people “this”, whatever it is, is impossible. “But with God!”

Beloved, set Jesus free to live life in you today so you can live the impossible. (Galatians 2:20)

Worship: Positions From the Heart – Prostration

“So I fell down and lay prostrate before the Lord forty days and nights because the Lord had said He would destroy you” (Deuteronomy 9:25).

Prostration: laid out, face down, in complete and utter surrender, laying one’s life down to be had by the One before whom we fall down.

Pastor Marshall at my church tells of when he finally surrendered to God, receiving Christ as Savior. He tells of going for months and months, unable to get through a service at church upright. He was so overcome by gratitude to God for saving him that he prostrated himself, feeling his absolute destitution without God and totally surrendering himself to Him.

Prostration is the greatest form of worship I can imagine. It again begins in the heart, for true prostration before our Holy God must be wholehearted and sincere. It pours forth from a heart that knows our lives belong to Him and He will do with us what He will. Our surrender and cooperation, in complete agreement with Him, is necessary to the heart that prostrates itself, laying life and limb before His throne. If ever we need to prostrate ourselves in complete surrender to God, laying our lives out before Him, it is now.

Our nation and indeed the world is in dire need of God’s work in our midst. God can do more in and through one person that is totally and completely surrendered to Him, than a thousand can do without Him. We want to impact our world for the glory of God and see Him victorious in our situations and circumstances? Fall down before Him in complete and utter surrender, realizing, “I cannot, but You can. I cannot unless You do.” Surrender all to Him and see Him high and lifted up in you.
