DOUBT YOUR DOUBTS

Doubt whispers the impossible, but faith dares it. “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it.

Still intimidated by the impossible? Angel Gabriel said, “With God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37). Jesus said, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes…. With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Mark 9:23; Matthew 19:26; cf. Mark 10:27). Doubt your doubts, believe God’s promises! “Natural impossibilities cannot prevent the work of the Omnipotent One” (E.G. White).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
