They can do it, YOU can do it

Funny, sometimes I have noticed that in our "circles" we give out titles. Joe says, "hey guys look Jeff is here, justin has a bum knee, jeff why don't you pray for him, your're good at healing people" in this short scenario joe just gave jeff a title of healer, "Jeff Poms, OWHP-One Who Heals People" thats what they want to see on a business card. This temporarily lends to our oh so frail ego but ultimately sweeps our own legs from under us as when jeff is sick and in need of prayer who in his "Circle" will be able to believe for healing? Now not only is everyone else not in practice for healing but also the "healer" is sick what could this mean? where is the release of faith in this?

the world may say to you that they can do it, They can tithe, pray, read and understand the bible, go to bible college, go on missions trips etc.

but God says You can do it! "I am" made you I created gifts and talents in you and even ones you don't know about, yet.

I learned through many trials and storms that few if any people will be there when you are in a bad car accident and need healing right then, when you are in the hospital because the doctors fear you just had a heart attack at age 25, when your wife and you have "lost" 2 babies due to tubal pregnancies, when the rent the car and the electric is all due and you just lost your job. who prays then? will you call up the pastor and try and get a hold of him/her? maybe your best friend? but time is running out and YOU need to pray what will you do? do you know what to do? or did you buy into "They can do it" ?

Is 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me!"

God knows you all of you and better than you know you, and He still chooses you! He would not ask of you what He hasn't given you the ability and faith to do. remember it is not about Great faith in God but simple faith in a Great God.
