Never Say "I Can't " Do A Good Thing. "You Can" is Possible If...

you are willing to pay the "built in" price of good accomplishment.

Faith ... in God ... is a powerful force which is available to every Christian who spends time in worship, prayer and studying God's word. The Apostle Paul who grew from a religious fanatic into a faith full disciple and Apostle of Jesus Christ, did exactly that. He exposed himself to God's word and yielded himself to God's will, and thereby grew in grace and the knowledge of God. He became one of the greatest men who ever lived, wrote more than half of the books of the New Testament, as God gave them to him. "So then, faith cometh by hearing ... the word of God." Rom.10:1.

That is why Paul could say, in faith ... "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Phil.4:13.

Jesus confirmed this attitude of faith is available to every Christian.
."And Jesus said unto them, 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" Matt.17:13

So if you think a good thing is impossible for you, think again, serve God, worship Him, study his word and seek His will  in prayer. He can help you do what you and others think is impossible. "...But Jesus said unto them ... with men this is imposssible; but with God all things are possible." Matt.19:26.

Considering these words and actions of Jesus ... and Paul, through Jesus .... Never say "I can't", unless God's word or His Holy Spirit tells your heart not to do a thing. Say with the Apostle Paul, "I can do this." But if you say it in faith, that faith will put you to preparing, analyzing, studying, planning goals and working with an almost obsessive, reasoned, confidence toward each of those goals.

Now here is a young lady of whom people said, "It is not possible" for her to be an athlete or to do a thousand other things ... but she did them all. So never quit, never stop trying, never give up on yourself accomplishing whatever is within God's will.... for you. RB
