With God all things are possible
For the Bible says in Jeremiah 32:17 (NIV), “Nothing is too hard for you.”
God asked the question in Genesis 18:14 (NIV), “Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year and Sarah will have a son.”
• As we begin tonight I would like to remind all of us who have travelled from far and wide that Jesus is the same yesterday,today and forever.
• He continues to perform miracles and he will continue to perform miracles.
• He operates in ways too high than our ways
• His thoughts are too deep for human comprehension as the bible says in Isaiah 55:8-9
• ”For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Our main text for tonight comes from Exodus 14:1-31
