Your Belief Unleashes the Power of God
By Rick Warren — Sep 14, 2015

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” (Matthew 19:26 NIV)
Everything is possible with God.
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible’” (Matthew 19:26 NIV).
Why did Saddleback Church launch The PEACE Plan? What makes us think that we could lead hundreds of thousands of other churches to go after the five biggest problems on the planet? The answer is we have a big God. People say, “Who do you think you are?” Wrong question. The question is, “Who do we think God is?” My God can do anything.
Jesus said, “According to your faith let it be done to you” (Matthew 9:29).
God wants to use you. He wants to bless you. He wants to do amazing things in your life. He wants you to be a world changer. But he’s waiting for you to trust him. You need to stop saying, “I can’t.” “I can’t make this marriage work.” “I can’t do what God wants me to do.” That’s a lie! All things are possible with God.
Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now glory be to God, who by his mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we would ever dare to ask or even dream of — infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, or hopes” (TLB). That’s why I push you through these devotionals, because I know you have enormous potential — far beyond what you ever imagined. God wants to use you, and according to your faith it will be done to you.
You know what the opposition to your faith is? It’s not other people. It’s not critics. It’s not even the devil. It’s your own unbelief. You are the biggest problem in your own life. Why don’t you believe God more? Why don’t you trust him more? It’s your choice. There are a lot of things you don’t have control over, but you can choose to believe God.
Do you want God to do big things in your life? Then start believing.

Talk It Over
What is something seemingly impossible that you want God to do in your life? Do you honestly believe he can do it?
How does thanking God in advance show him your belief?
What is an “I can’t” that you need to turn into a “God can”?

    I was called to advocacy many years ago. And over all the intervening years from 1964 to today the question I am asked most often is, "Why to to you go to dangerous places to serve strangers?"
    My answer has always been the same, "Wherever I go and whatever I do, whether I live or die, I go with God."

    I am not foolhardy. I just know that I am not alone!
