You gotta love those moments when the true power of God's love overwhelms you! Those moments when you realize... God used that tragedy from your past to make today so much BETTER!
Feel the need for a miracle in your life? Then, Step out in faith! What kind of spirit does God give us? "God gives us a Spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control." (2 Tim 1:7)
"Jesus is the one of whom the scripture says: ‘The stone that you the builders despised turned out to be the most important of all.' Salvation is to be found through Him alone; in all the world there is no one else whom God has given who can save us.” (Acts 4:11-12)
Here is our lesson. We must not just say we have courageous faith, we must demonstrate that we have courageous faith. If you want to experience God’s miraculous power in all His glory—you must truly be courageous.
One of the phrases my pastor uses is this: “We are a ‘microwave’ society but we serve a ‘crock pot’ God.” Over the generations we have become impatient people, we have a strong desire for immediate gratification.

There were significant problems below the surface, however, that God pointed out to Jeremiah.
Each one of us has been engineered by God! The creator of the heavens and earth has created us within our mothers' wombs, speaking us into existence in order to perform a specific God-given purpose.
