Never rule out God!
You may be down but you are not out. You may be discouraged but you are not defeated. You may feel dry, but you are not dead. God has a plan and a purpose for your life. He can take any situation and make it NEW again.
Don’t ever rule out God!
What if Noah ruled out God? You and I would not be here today … all he did was spend time building an Ark … everyone laughed at him … he did not rule out God – he believed … him and his family saved.
Job did not rule out God. Even after loosing everything in a matter of moments. He trusted God. The Bible says, “The Lord restored his fortunes and gave him twice as much as he had before” (Job 42:10).
Joseph never ruled out God – in slavery, in prison, and as a servant. He trusted that God had a plan. At the end of his life he was placed 2nd in command under Pharoah.
Deborah. She heard a message from God. Israel was at war. Deborah tells Barak – “God will give us the victory.” Barak is afraid and will only go if Deborah fights alongside him. God gave them victory. Deborah never ruled out God.
What you see and what God sees are often two different things … that’s why we have to ask God for his eyes. Ezekiel saw at first just a valley filled with dry, decaying bones – but God helped him see a mighty army!!!
Don’t see your situation – see the Lord over your situation.
