Working Through Luke and Acts – Luke 1, verse 37

Luke 1:37    For with God nothing will be impossible.

I want to be a man of all-out faith. Anything God says, no matter how “impossible,” I believe and stand on, without doubting or hedging. I take His Word and His promises seriously, and come first to them in every situation. I am not daunted by impossible circumstances, but buoyed by the Word. I am not agitated by the unknown. I am at peace, because I know He has foreseen, and is prepared with whatever I need, for the situations I will face during my day.

I want to be that man of faith, inside and out. Inside in that my outlook is always a faith outlook, and my reaction to any situation is always a faith reaction. Outside in that my attitude, actions, and words always speak of my trust and confidence in God, not just normal human reactions.

I trust God, and react to every circumstance of my daily life knowing that He has promised to guide and protect me, to provide for me, and to never leave me nor forsake me. There is nothing that I will face during my day, or in any day, that is too hard for God. I can trust Him totally with my life: minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, month by month, year-by-year.

I will not be daunted by what I see. I refuse to be frightened by difficult or seemingly impossible circumstances. I refuse to focus on how bad things may look. Instead, I will focus all my attention on God’s Word, His promises to me, and His presence in my life.

Phil 4:6-7    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7  and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Whatever may confront me during any day, instead of falling into anxiety about it, I will in everything, by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, make my requests known to God. And His peace will sustain me, and His hand shall deliver me, according to the promise of His Word.
