Today, we’re fasting from “It’s IMPOSSIBLE.” Jesus said “All things are possible to him who believes!” (Mark 9:23) What is in your life today that you have given up on or considered impossible? Whatever it is (provided it’s legal!), don’t ever give up. NEVER NEVER NEVER give up! The New Read more…
Today we are fasting from the thought: “Will I ever win this battle?”
Perhaps you’re battling depression, an addiction, or fear. Perhaps it’s a sickness or pain. Regardless of what it is, here is the key to your victory, as we take this thought captive:
1. YOU’VE ALREADY WON! Jesus’ declaration on the cross sums it up: “It is finished.” (John 19:30) What was finished? The battle against the power of sin and the devil.
2. Ask God to open the eyes of your heart. (Ephesians 1:18-19) You must look at life from God’s point of view. In 2 Kings 6, when Elisha was surrounded by enemy armies, his servant became afraid and said, ‘we’re surrounded, what should we do?’ Elisha didn’t pray for more angels.

Just as we saw yesterday, you’re not the only one who has thought these things. Paul the apostle dealt with the same thoughts you and I face.
In fact, this thought: “I just don’t have what it takes,” is a quote right out of the Bible (Message translation). (more…)
I. Introduction. As born again believers, we must all come to realize that God has given us the ability to be champions in life. We can reign over all things. There should be nothing to difficult for us. When we look to God our possibilities in life are without limitation. Luke 18:27 But He said, "The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. The Jerusalem Bible says, "There is nothing I cannot master with the help of the One who gives me strength." (more…)
