Nothing God cannot overcome


When encountering a particularly difficult trial, I’ve been known to mumble, “God, You have more confidence in me than I have in myself.” I might not mean it to be a factual statement when I utter it, but it is a fact. He does have confidence in us, because He has confidence in Himself. Do you think the recently freed minister, Saeed Abedini, could have endured five years of imprisonment and torture without God’s strength infusing him? Of course not. But the Holy Spirit was with Saeed, giving him strength and helping be a beacon of Jesus to his captors. Remember, dear Christian, there is no hardship you cannot overcome because there is no hardship your all-powerful God cannot overcome.
