Day 15 – There is Nothing God Can’t Do
Scriptures to Meditate on and Pray Through –
“How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the wasteland! Again and again, they put God to the test; they vexed the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember his power—the day he redeemed them from the oppressor” (Psalm 78:40-42)
“And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith. (Matthew 13:58)
“Is anything too hard for the Lord? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.” (Genesis 18:14)
“Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.” “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me?”(Jeremiah 32:17, 27)
“As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the Lord. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the Lord. (Isaiah 59:21)
How to Pray: Not Limiting God
Above everything, beware of limiting God–not only by unbelief but also by imagining that you know what He can do. Expect the unexpected–more than you could ask or think. Each time you intercede. be quiet first–listen and worship. Think of all He can do. of all, He delights to do for His children, of your place in Christ, your identity with Him.
What to Pray: For Schools and Colleges
The future of the church, the nation, and the world depends–to an extent, we scarcely conceive of–on the education of our youth. The church may be seeking to evangelize the lost, while it is giving up on its own children to secular and materialistic influences. Pray for your schools and colleges. Pray for the faculty, those who most influence the young in these halls of learning. The church has an awesome responsibility to lay a foundation for these young people before they are sent away to hear every form of half-truth and false teaching, every doctrine and philosophy of man. Pray specifically to bind selfishness, hatred, prejudice, and racism. Pray to release compassion, love, peace, faith, justice, and hope. May the church also realize its responsibility to pray and support these young people, guiding them to God’s truth, and enabling them to make wise choices. Pray too for godly teachers, even in the secular schools.
