Natural means...

Luke 1:37 For nothing is impossible with God.
It is when you find yourself looking at and dealing with your problems from a natural point of view that you will always find yourself troubled and discouraged. There are times when we realize everything we need do and everything we don't have to take care of those needs. We wonder HOW can do we get to where we need to be when we see no way out of where we are.
It is during that time that we need to be reminded through the word of God's faithfulness. There are two references of scripture that deal with people in the same predicament. 2 Chronicles 20:15-17 and Exodus 14:13-14. In both those instances you see God's people up against insurmountable obstacles. In both these scriptures you can see there is no possible way in the world for them to make it out of their situation. But Glory to God they did get out and in fact better than they went in. In both these cases we see God do what only HE is able to do. And that is make a supernatural way where there is no natural means.
That is good news today for some of us today who don't know what to do and which way to turn. It is good news to know that Jesus has already defeated our enemy and all we need to do is hold fast to our confession of possessing the victory. It is not your job to know HOW it will happen just know that it has happened. From where you sit right now YOU HAVE THE VICTORY. You are only defeated if you believe and tell yourself you are.
Right now I hear the LORD saying the just shall live by faith. I know right now those close around you are not living by faith but by natural resources. And they are directly and indirectly trying to cause you to do the same BUT maintain your position. God sees the pressure that is all around you and He will get that pressure off of you.
The word of God promises us that no one whose hope is in God will ever be put to shame.
Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. Be Blessed, Manie
