Conversations With God

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in Me. In My Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I AM going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you with Me that you also may be where I AM. You know the way to the place I AM going.”

John 14:1-4

YOU SAY  "It's impossible"

GOD SAYS  All things are possible

BIBLE VERSES  Luke 18:27 – Jesus replied, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.”

       Mark 9:23 – “‘If You can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for him who believes.”

                       Mark 10:27 – Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God. All things are possible with God.”

All too often God, we think that things are impossible. But with You, God nothing is impossible. You will take the very situation that we are in and bring Your glory into it but only if we let You. But all too often, we rely on ourselves and not on You, God. We have to learn to trust in You Lord for all things in our lives. We have to be willing to step out in faith and to walk on water, trusting that You Lord God will bring all things into perfect according to Your will. We have to stop clinging to the very things that hold us back and give them to You, Lord, so that Your will is done. Jesus, You said to the man who asked if You could save his son and You question his statement ‘If You can?’ Jesus, teach us that the most important thing that we need to do all things is to believe in God. Because nothing else matters.

YOU SAY  "I'm too tired"

GOD SAYS  I will give you rest

BIBLE VERSES Matthew 11:28-30 – “Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke                                      upon you and learn from Me, for I AM gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

        Psalm 91:1 – He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

                          Jeremiah 6:16 – This is what the Lord says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”

All too often, we allow the world to take over our lives and reject the peace that could be ours.

Lord Jesus, You want us to learn Your way so that life’s burdens will be easy. “How,” we ask, and

You say, “By placing yourselves in Me, by being one with God, your lives will be a reflection of

who you are inside.” “But Lord,” we protest, “we find that it is hard to rest in You because we

allow the world to dictate to us. Lord Jesus, we will not be one with the Father if we continue to let

the world dictate our lives. But if we learn from You God, Your ancient wisdom, Your knowledge,

Your Word, we will find the way good and will know that there is nothing that we cannot do. For

we do know how to ask You Lord for Your strength to fill us each and every day. And we are tired

because we have not learned to Trust. We need to fold ourselves into Your arms and then at

night our slumber will be sweet if we give You God everything and we will be rested and able to

begin again.”

YOU SAY "Nobody really loves me"

GOD SAYS I love you

BIBLE VERSES John 3:16 – “For GOD so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

                               Exodus 34:6,7 – “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.

Deuteronomy 7:13 – He will love you and bless you and increase your numbers.

2 Chronicles 5:13 – “He is good; His love endures forever.”

Psalm 36:5 – Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, Your faithfulness to the skies.

                              Romans 5:5 – And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.

Oh, how wonderful is Your love. Because of love You created this world and created each of us.

Even though we disobey You, You never stops loving us, and You put before us Your Word, Your

Gifts and Your blessings, speaking softly to us, hoping that we will choose to love You in return.

God Your love is so great that while we were still sinners, You decided to come to earth and show

us Your way in the life that You lived. You were tempted in every way that we are, yet You did not

sin. You took the punishment that was for us and took it upon Yourself. Your love is so great that

You stretched out Your arms and died for us. We too easily forsake Your love in the way that we

live but You continue to pour out Your love upon us.

YOU SAY "I can't go on"

GOD SAYS My grace is sufficient

BIBLE VERSES 2 Corinthians 12:7-9 – To keep me from becoming conceited because of these surpassingly great revelations,                                      there was given to me a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three                                   times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness.

                            Psalm 91:15- He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

        Psalm 45:2 – You are the most excellent of men and your lips have been       anointed with grace since God has blessed you forever.  

                          James 4:6 – But He gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

“I’m so tired, I don’t know how I can go on.” “I hurt, the pain is so great, and I don’t want it.” “I wish

I didn’t have to live paycheck to paycheck, doing without something that I want, even though

it is not something I need.” “Why can’t I give up …?” “Why am I fat?” Why am I not pretty?” “Why

am I pretty?” “Why doesn’t He give me…? There are thousands and thousands of people out

there always questioning You God. How do You filter through all that we cry out to You? We are

given “thorns in our flesh” so that we can learn to turn to You God and rely on You and You

alone. We may be weak, but if we trust in You, we will be strong because we will have the Your

strength to get us through whatever may come our way.

YOU SAY "I can't figure things out"

GOD SAYS I will direct your steps

BIBLE VERSES Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.

                              Psalm 119:34-35 – Give me understanding, and I will keep Your law and obey it with all my heart. Direct me in the path of Your commands, for there I find delight.

                             Jeremiah 10:23-24 – I know, O Lord, that a man’s life is not his own; it is not for man to direct his steps. Correct me, Lord, but only with justice—not in Your anger, lest You reduce me to nothing.

God You have given to us in Your Word, the way in which to go. Why do we keep on taking a

different path than Yours? Why do we struggle with the Word? Your Bible is “Basic Instructions

Before leaving Earth”. What keeps us away from following the way of the Lord is simply our very

selves. We are all to eager to blame everything on You or someone or something and we even

blame things on the devil, but the blames lies within because we have a choice in all matters. We

keep saying “I, I, I,” and “Me, Me, Me” and forget that we are here to learn to love God. Solomon

tells us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” But

sadly, most cannot give all to You God and we only seek our own wisdom or understanding.

YOU SAY "I can't do it"

GOD SAYS You can do all things

BIBLE VERSES Philippians 4:13 – I can do everything through Him Who gives me strength.

                                                        Isaiah 55:10-12 – As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it                                                          without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields                                                           seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My Word that goes out                                                          from My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I                                                             desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace;

                                                       2 Samuel 22:33-34 – It is God Who arms me with strength, and makes my way perfect. He                                                           makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He enables me to stand on the heights.

I have to remember that I can’t but You can God. God, Your strength is there if we come and ask

for it. And we do have to ask for it each and every day. Because we are to live in “Today” and not

tomorrow, we are to live in the “Present” not the future. We have to sow our faith, in order for You

God to make it grow. If we don’t die to self, knowing that our very self is the seed, we don’t

grow. A seed has to die in order to grow. We have to die to all that holds us from giving our entire

self to You God. We have to die to the hurt, the pain, the pleasure, the ideas that we have for

our lives. A seed must be dead in order for the seed to begin again, growing into a new plant.  

Once planted, the seed is no longer a dried up, but is cultivated, fed, watered and taken care of

and then it is no longer a dead object, but a living thing. That is what faith is when we put our faith

in action. When we die to what we were and become who You God wants us to be, allowing You

God to be bread for us, we will accomplish what You has planned for us. You will make our paths

perfect because You are perfect. Your work will not return to You empty, because we choose to

make You God Lord and Savior of our lives. Living out our faith, being the image of God to

those we meet, brings the Word alive, making us capable to do all things.

YOU SAY "I'm not able"


BIBLE VERSES 2 Corinthians 9:8 – And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

                              Daniel 3:17 – We do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and He will rescue us from your hand.

                            Jude 24-25  – To Him Who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

When the world becomes too much, when life throws me curves, when all seems lost, God You are able.

When I am slandered by what I believe, when I am broken and poured out, when I am alone, plugging

away but never seem to be going anywhere, You God are able. God, You are always there. My faith is

believing in something that I can’t see or touch, my faith is knowing that I have Your grace that fills me to do

all that Your will has for me. All glory goes to You God for even the little successes and blessings in my life,

and I don’t say “Thank You, God,” enough for all that You do. And there are times Lord, when I seem to take

You for granted, so trusting in You that I don’t even think about a “No” answer, but trusting completely in a

“Yes,” from You. God, I may not understand all that is happening in my life and in the lives of those I love

and know, but I do know that there is something for me to learn and do in each experience, each trial and

each blessing that You bring into my life. And no matter what is happening, I am at peace because God You are already there and You are in control. Thank You for getting these things in my life because YOU got this trial and already are leading me to Your perfect will.
