What is it that God can't do for you
Sermon shared by Terry Owens
Summary: When we think small we limit God, there’s nothing He can’t do for you. Open the possiblities with this message.
Denomination: Church of God
Audience: Believer adults
For example, I can read a book on a famous person, I could recite to you all the major achievements of that person’s life, all their failures and if you didn’t know much about me, you might think that the person I was talking about was a friend of mine. The truth is, I just know about them. I really don’t know them.
There’s a lot of that going on in the body of Christ. People know about the scriptures, I hear it when I counsel people, they’ll tell me, I know that’s what the scriptures say, but!
What they’re telling me is when it comes to knowing the truth of the scriptures and experiencing them for their selves, they’re clueless.
The question you need to ask yourself this morning, which person side of the fence am I on? If you want to operate in faith, you must go from the Logos word (the written word) to the Rhema word (the living word).
You’ll never really ever know the power of God unless you experience the power of the Word! Jesus said it himself, “you do err not knowing the scripture, nor the power of God”
You can’t have a casual attitude about the Word and expect to experience the power of the Word! It just won’t happen. It’s got to get into your mind and it must get into your spirit.
Faith and the Word of God are inseparable. Rom 10:17 “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”
It is the Word of God that the Holy Spirit uses to awaken a response of faith in us. If you have a faith problem, then more than likely you have a hearing problem too.
How many times have you sat through a church service and you didn’t really hear what was being preached. Don’t sit there trying to act spiritual. I think we’re all guilty of that one time or another.
You were there in body but your mind was off somewhere else. You were thinking about your problems, how am I going to get through this crisis? I don’t know where the money is going to come from. Or I wonder where we’re going to go for lunch.
There are believers that go to church every week and when they leave that service they say, I’m not any better than I was. But my question to them is did they “hear” the word so it could produce faith in your life?
Be a person of the Word and ask God to open the scriptures up to you.
Another reason God can’t move is due to sin present
Satan has a lot of people fooled into believing that once they go to an alter and pray, then they’re okay for the rest of their life. But then problems arise and they wonder where’s God at in all of this.
You need to understand something. God is not going to be mocked, you can’t live any way that you want and still expect God’s blessings upon your life. Listen to what the Word says in Galatians 6:
Gal 6:7-9 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Every one sitting here this morning is producing some kind of harvest in your life. There may be some of you that it seems all you seem to reap is misery and problems and heartaches. There are others that are reaping blessings in their life.
Your harvest is determined by the seed you plant. If you
