The United States Army had taught him many things and he loved serving his country. However, he could not understand the constant humiliation he had learned to endure, solely because he believed in Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
His comrades could be downright mean when they saw him reading his Bible or taking time to pray before chow. On this one particular day, the captain decided to dishonor him before the troops. He called the young man and said, "Soldier, I want you to take this key and go park the truck in front of the Major's housing unit."
The young soldier replied, "Sir, I am not cleared to drive this vehicle and the Major is authoritarian and forbidding when it comes to parking army vehicles!" "Well then" replied the Captain, "Ask for assistance from your God! It is about time you show us that He exists, don't you think, soldier?"
He managed to shift the gears and maneuver the large vehicle perfectly into place, just as his Captain had ordered him to do. He whispered a quick, "Thank you, Lord" and then got down out of the truck.
As he walked back to his quarters, he saw the Captain and his army colleagues from a far. He wondered about what they would say to him and how he would respond to their snide remarks.
As he got closer, he saw that they were all crying, when one quickly spoke up, "We want to serve your God!" The young soldier was astonished, he wanted to know what was going on?
The Captain quietly told the soldier to "follow him." They all walked back to where the young soldier had parked the truck. Then the Captain, began sobbing as he opened the hood of the truck, showing the young man that the truck had no engine.
The young man was ecstatic as he pronounced, "You see? This is the God I serve, the God who gives life to what does not exist!"
Are you at a point in life, where nothing will do... but a MIRACLE from GOD?? He is able... He is more than able.
We don't have a chance at changing our circumstances if we think we can do it all on our own. But, there is every chance in the world... when we trust God to change things!
My God is the God of impossibilities! He is the God of ALL Hope! He is the God who can not fail!! There is nothing that you are facing, that God can not change!
It just takes FAITH!!
By FAITH: Enoch skipped death completely.
By FAITH: Noah built a ship in the middle of dry land.
By FAITH: Abraham said yes to God’s call to travel to an unknown place that
would become his home.
By FAITH: Barren Sarah was able to become pregnant.
By FAITH: Abraham, at the time of testing, offered Isaac back to God.
Enoch simply believed!
Abraham kept his eyes on an "unseen city" that had real eternal foundations - the City designed and built by God Himself!!
Noah's act of faith drew a sharp line between the evil of the unbelieving world and the rightness of the believing world. As a result, Noah became intimate with
It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek Him.
My friend, Do you need a miracle today? God is still in the miracle business!! He is the same today as He was yesterday!! Keep believing! Keep Trusting! Keep your Faith going!!
When you've done all that you know to do... When you've prayed and asked God for answers... When you don't know what else to do... be still... stand firm and see what God will do!!
