    No Limits with God

    Monday, March 23, 2015

    Does life ever seem to get overwhelming and you wonder what’s next? As pastors’ wives, I believe there are times we forget there are “no limits with God.” Life, family, and ministry become so overwhelming we get in the self-reliant mode; our focus gets off and we try to become self-sufficient instead of relying on God.

    I want to encourage you to get yourself back on track if this is where you find yourself and allow this devotional to resonate in your soul.

    I am able to do far beyond all that you ask or imagine. Come to Me with positive expectations, knowing that there is no limit to what I can accomplish. Ask My Spirit to control your mind, so that you can think great thoughts of Me. Do not be discouraged by the fact that many of your prayers are yet unanswered. Time is a trainer, teaching you to wait upon Me, to trust Me in the dark. The more extreme your circumstances, the more likely you are to see My Power and Glory at work in the situation. Instead of letting difficulties draw you into worrying, try to view them as setting the scene for My glorious intervention. Keep your eyes and your mind wide open to all that I am doing in your life.

    So my challenge to you this week is to stop fretting or worrying about things, and watch for God’s Power and Glory to work the situation out in His timing!

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
