I Cannot: God Can

My world is enclosed in a reality that God is not limited by. You see, He controls reality... He is God. He is in the business of doing the impossible. He created the world, after all! He sent His Son into the world born of a virgin. Jesus Christ rose from the dead. He heals miraculously. And yet I limit Him based on the "reality" encased in this temporal world... I have been reading Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray. Murray talks about how we get frustrated, beating our heads against the wall because we consistently fail in our attempts to be wholly devoted and surrendered to Christ's will. Very shortly put, he points out that "...the things which are impossible with men are possible with God." (Luke 18:37) Is it in coming to the end of myself that I will find the solution?

May I read the book when you are through? :)

Hi Becky -

I once heard someone say that my reality is not always truth. God's Word is truth. When my reality doesn't match up with God's Word, there's a disconnect somewhere.

Mom - Of course you can --- it's actually from Pop's library :-).

Susan - good's way too easy for me to slide into an "alternate reality" that may feel right but doesn't match what God says. "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
Thanks for stopping by :-)
