Victory Vitamin Blog – Genesis 18:14

“Is anything too hard for the LORD?”

-Genesis 18:14 NIV

Abraham was 100 years old, his wife Sarah was 90.  God revealed to them that they were going to have a child in their old age and they both laughed.  In response, the LORD to Abraham, “Is anything too hard for the LORD?”  Have we too, forgotten that God performs miracles?  Do we doubt His ability to do amazing things in our lives today?  We should expect to be surprised by God!  (I know, the whole point of a surprise is that it’s unexpected)  God has given us the gift of faith, and God has proven that He will act in surprising ways to display His love for us.   For example, it’s surprising that God became human, took our sin on Himself and died to remove them!  That combination of faith, and God’s surprising track record should give us complete confidence that God will continue to work in our lives  in amazing and surprising ways still today.  God can and will display His surprising and miraculous power in your life, the greatest surprise being the love of a perfect God, given to sinners like us.

Victory Vitamin Blog – Genesis 2:18

“It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”

-Genesis 2:18 NIV

 

God had a plan when He created Adam and Eve.  He intended that husband and wife work together.  Let’s call them “teammates”.  The plan is still in place today.  Way back in Genesis 2, God said, “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife”.  God still intends that a man and a woman live together in marriage with the purpose of working together, serving and loving each other so that the lives of each are enriched and more fulfilling.  It’s  not easy.  There are people and things in this world that love to destroy marriages.  Pride, porn, conflicts, careers.  The marriage relationship is so unique that Jesus uses it to illustrate His relationship with the church. “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”  -Ephesians 5:25 NIV Jesus gave His life to save His bride, the Church, and now we look forward to the marriage feast in heaven.  If you’re married, make your marriage a priority.  If you’re not married, please pray for those who are, and know that those who are, are praying for you.
