An Open Door

July 21, 2017

A wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries. 1 Corinthians 16:9

1. THE IMPOSSIBLE IS POSSIBLE. Whenever you hear people say something is impossible, then you can celebrate, because God said all things are possible to those who believe (Mark 9:23). Let the Word of God push aside unbelief and fear, because God has called you to speak to the mountains and command them to be moved (Mark 11:23).

Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Mark 11:24

2. BREAK BARRIERS. Impenetrable barriers can be traversed by the power of Jesus. He told Peter that the gates of hell cannot block the church (Matthew 16:18). Hell and all its forces are trying to stop and hinder what God is doing in this hour. But nothing can stop what God has initiated.

For by You I [King David] can run upon a troop; and by my God I can leap over a wall. Psalm 18:29

3. ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING. If we want to keep growing in God, we have to keep the right spirit by continually laying aside the weights and encumbrances and sin that try to lay hold of us. Forgive. Be merciful. God has given us a mission, and our hearts must stay clear and vibrant, ready to hear and obey what God is saying!

Press On!
Pastor Jeff

I am steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord (1 Corinthians 15:58). He makes me as surefooted as a deer, enabling me to stand on mountain heights (Psalm 18:33 NLT).

bar·ri·er, noun
A material formation or structure, such as a mountain range or wall, that prevents passage or access. Something immaterial that obstructs or impedes.
