Can I Have Faith When The Obstacles Before Me Are Too Big To Break?

You Can Have Faith Because The Obstacles Are Never As Big As We Imagine Them To Be.

• Most of the walls we face are walls of our own building.

• Those that aren’t are built because of other’s fear.

• When God is with us, we have no reason for fear, and thus no reason for walls.

Hebrews 13:5b-6 (NIV)

God has said,

“Never will I leave you;

never will I forsake you.”

So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?”

You Can Have Faith Because God Is Bigger Than Our Circumstances.

• Consider His how big He really is:

When I consider the heavens , the work of Your Fingers, the moon and stars that you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?. Psalm 8:3-4 (NIV)

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice is like the great deep.

Psalm 36:5-6 (NIV)

Slide # 16 – same comment as slide # 15

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, or with the breadth of His hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance?

“To whom will you compare Me? Or who is My equal?” says the Holy One.

Isaiah 40:25 (NIV)

You Can Have Faith Because God Is Bigger Than Our Circumstances.

You Can Have Faith Because God Is Bigger Than Our Circumstances.

• He knows the obstacles you are facing.

– My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.

Psalm 139:15-16

– Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of Him to Whom we must give account.

Hebrews 4:13 (NIV)

You Can Have Faith Because God Is Able.

• Throughout His Word, He is seen delighting in delivering His people from “impossible” situations.

• From heaven the LORD looks down and sees all mankind; from His dwelling place He watches all who live on earth . . . The eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope is in His unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. Psalm 33:13-14, 18-19

You Can Have Faith Because God Is Able.

• Throughout His Word, He is seen delighting in delivering His people from “impossible” situations.

• What seems to be No Way, becomes The Way by His helpful hand.

– “Ah, Sovereign Lord, you have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for You.” Jeremiah 32:17

Faith

• Overcomes any obstacle.

• Crumbles the wall separating us from God.

• Shatters strongholds set against God.
