ODG Billy Sunday “Impossibilities”

“We have a God who delights in impossibilities.”

Billy Sunday 1862-1935

Billy Sunday was born in poverty, raised in an orphanage, became a well known outfielder in the National League in the 1880’s then became one of the most well known and influential evangelists of the early 20th century. He was well aware of overcoming impossibilities and he had no problem giving credit to God.

As I embark on this next adventure that has been placed before my wife and I, I am so glad that the God of impossibilities is walking right beside me. It is a scary step, that first one you take in faith, but I know that it is what I have been called to do. True North Christian Fellowship has been on my heart for about the last 10 years. I have either tried to fit it in to someone elses ministry, made excuses that it was not the right time or just been flat out to scared to take that step. Recently God has made it clear that now is the right time.

Church planting is a big task, filled with obstacles that would appear to be impossibilities, and yet God has promised that there is nothing he cannot do or walk us through. (Romans 8:31 b “If God is for us, who can be against us?”) I am so excited for what he has planned for True North and I know that as long as we focus on Love and sound doctrine it will be amazing. Please pray for us.

God is the God of impossibilities, he has never found a problem that is beyond his ability, we need to rest in that. You may find yourself praying that tomorrow doesn’t come because you have no idea how you are going to make it through. I have been there at times, it is scary not knowing if things are going to be okay. Yet, as Christians we do know, we do know that God is in control and things will work out, maybe not how we plan, or in our time frame but it always “ALWAYS” does. I have been so amazed over the last 28 years of marriage and raising my children how many times God has gotten me out of impossibilities. Like this quote says God specializes in the impossible.

If you do not know Christ as Lord you will face impossibilities that truly are impossible. Without Christ you are on your own in a very dark and difficult world. God wants to protect you and guide you through those impossible trials, Christ is your access to that Love and Grace, don’t walk alone! Please ask me or someone you know that loves the Lord if you have any questions, your life truly does depend on it!

Philippians 4:13 (New King James Version)
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

All things means “ALL THINGS!!!”

GOD is GOOD!!!
