Do you believe this?

A.B. Simpsonby A.B. Simpson

Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you —Acts 1:8

There is power for us if we have the Holy Spirit. God wants us to speak to men so that they will feel it, so that they will never forget it. God means every Christian to be effective, to make a difference in the actual records and results of Christian work. God put each of us here to be a power. There is not one of us but is an essential wheel of the machinery and can accomplish all that God calls us to.

There is not a thing that God expects of a person but that God will give him or her the power to do. There is not a command God gives to His children for which He does not provide the enablement for obedience. When Christ Jesus lived and died and sent down the Holy Spirit, He sent resources for all our needs, and there is no place for failure in the Christian life if we will take God’s resources. Jesus, the ascended One, and the Holy Spirit, the indwelling energy, life and efficiency of God are sufficient for all possible emergencies. Do you believe this? if you believe it, let Him into your heart, without reserve, and allow Him to control you and work through you today by His power.

When The Case Seems Impossible

Vance Havnerby Vance Havner

I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him. Then Jesus answered, and said…Bring him hither to me. Matthew 17:16, 17

“And they could not” – it is helpless disciples against a demon, a powerless church before a devil-possessed world, our plight before many a situation. But however much Christians and churches may fail, Christ does not fail – “Bring him hither to me.” What if the father, disappointed at the disciples’ failure, had taken the boy away?

When you face a case that seems hopeless bring it to Jesus. His touch has still its ancient power. And His power is available to us. When the disciples asked, “Why could not we cast him out?” Jesus answered, “Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

Faith and prayer will move the mountain and drive out the demon. “With God all things are possible.”

“All things are possible to him that believeth.”
