Place Your Trust in God

Today's Scripture

“Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’” Matthew 19:26 NKJV.

Thoughts for Today

There seemed to be little hope for George Washington Carver. He lived at a time when there were few opportunities and overwhelming obstacles for African-Americans.

Born on a farm in Missouri on this day in 1864, he had a difficult childhood. His body was frail, and he often was sick. He never knew his natural father, but recalled how he “was killed shortly after my birth while hauling wood to town on an ox wagon.”

While still an infant, Carver, along with his sisters and mother, was kidnapped by raiders. Although he was rescued, the others died or disappeared.

Yet Carver did not allow these obstacles to stand in his way. He demonstrated determination and a remarkable drive to learn. He eventually graduated from Iowa Agricultural College (now Iowa State University), where he taught classes before moving on to Tuskegee College in Alabama.

In spite of what seemed like impossible barriers, Carver went on to change the world and make many of history’s greatest discoveries, including hundreds of innovative uses for peanuts, soybeans, pecans, and sweet potatoes. He also developed a crop rotation method that revolutionized agriculture.

What was his secret? Faith in God. He prayed that “those whom He has redeemed learn to walk with Him not only daily or hourly,” but moment by moment. He asked God for “wisdom, understanding and bodily strength to do His will.” Carver believed that all things were possible with God.

Think about your life. Do you face obstacles? Is anything holding you back? Whatever you face, place your trust in God, and don’t limit Him. Fill your mind with His Word, and be ready to step out in faith. Believe that He will answer your prayers, give you victory, and open every door. If you ask in faith, all things are possible.

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, I commit these needs to You: _______. Guide me, and grant me insights and truths about Your Kingdom. I believe that all things are possible with You. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Saturday and God Bless you.
