Too often our own limitations induce us to hesitate God's strength to carry out through us. It's natural to understand up reasons things can't take place because our Almighty God is concerned. The next moment you figure out an assurance from God is very impossible to become true, or you are experiencing an insurmountable problem, look at it from God's perspective and beg him to do the impossible! He promises that at the proper time, he can and will do the impossible for you.
