With God…

“But Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”

— Matthew 19:26

One of the great saints of the last century, A. W. Tozer, said that if someone were able to extract from your mind the thoughts you have when you think of God, they could very accurately predict your spiritual future, because people rise no higher than their concept of God.

Certainly the disciples of the first century had an exalted view of God. Their God could do anything. To paraphrase them: “O Lord God, Creator of heaven and earth, nothing is too hard for You.” And so, therefore, they set out on a glorious task. Here they were, eleven men (i.e., the twelve minus Judas). God told them to do a little simple thing: Go change the whole world—and they set out to do it. They have, in great measure, already succeeded. These men who were so absorbed in the characteristics and attributes of God were able to do fantastic things.

The late Bill Bright, the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, told us to remember that as believers in Christ we are called to live supernatural lives. We are no longer ordinary people, but our lives are now joined with the One who spoke and the worlds were framed. We belong to the One whom God has given all authority over heaven and earth, and He has come to dwell in our lives with all of His resurrection power.

Bright said that living a supernatural life begins with thinking supernatural thoughts. Pray for supernatural results and watch God do great things.

All Powerful Omnipotent God, I praise You for Your might. Give me a clear picture of You and let not my finite mind distort Your image…
