 God Is Always Looking For Willing Vessels to Trust Him For the Impossible


Sadly, even the weak soon learn how to be strong, how to rely on their own experiences, successes and victories. It becomes a dangerous practice of taking glory away from God for accomplishments we believe we have achieved. We then deny the proper recognition and glory which belongs to God alone because it is His work. God will only entrust His work with those He knows will give Him 100% of the glory for what is done and take no glory to themselves.

In the same way many denominations, churches and ministries start off as a vibrant move of the Spirit of God but then turn into methods, traditions and formulas. Such groups then depend on their history, on the last move of God, on structures, buildings and all other things rather than a fresh dependence on God daily for their purpose and growth. A famous evangelical pastor said of the church in his day: “The average church has so established itself organizationally and financially that God is simply not necessary to it. So entrenched is its authority and so stable are the religious habits of its members that God could withdraw Himself completely from it and it could run on for years on its own momentum.”

God is always looking for the willing vessels that will trust Him afresh for the impossible, for in such cases He gets the glory and the individual being used simply gives the glory to this God of the impossible.

Every true move of the Holy Spirit primarily elevates and glorifies the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. Furthermore, He gives a fresh expression and expansion to the kingdom of God according to the model of the early Church when His Son is exalted.

 Re: God Is Always Looking For Willing Vessels to Trust Him For the Impossible

It is by allowing God to move us into the realm where we are uncomfortable that we are able to see His glory manifest and truly realize it is all of Him and none of us. If we would just stop kicking against the pricks when crisis or impossible situations come and allow God to move us into the place where we have to believe in his grace, power and provision than truly we will begin to live in the impossible and supernatural. Don't fight...believe.. Have faith in the greatness of our God. Good word brother.
