Who God Is

Part 8:
“He Never Gives Up On Us”

by Michael Lewis

August 22, 2021

“Nothing is impossible with God.” (LK 1:37)

“If you will believe, whatever you ask for you will receive.” (Matt 21:22)

“Therefore, there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus.”  (Rom 8:1)

“…nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.” (Rom 8:39)

Mark 6:31, 35-44

“But Jesus said, “YOU feed them!”  -Mark 6:37

Mark 8:1-9

Remember:

1. God often puts in places where our logic says: “we can’t do it.”

Guess what? We are NOT Jesus we and never will be in this lifetime.

Do you think sometimes Jesus just expects too much of us?

The disciples answered logically, but not theological.

2. We learn to trust God by applying His faithfulness to our future challenges.

They saw Jesus was faithful to His promises….

…but they soon fell back into a small faith reality.

Do you suffer from spiritual amnesia?

“Even when there was no reason for hope, Abraham kept hoping—believing that he would become the father of many nations. For God had said to him, “That’s how many descendants you will have!” And Abraham’s faith did not weaken, even though, at about 100 years of age, he figured his body was as good as dead…”  -Romans 4:18-19

The task of obedience is to decide what God wants…

…The second task of obedience is to show up where God might do it.
