Woodlawn Family Bible Study
MAIN IDEA: “God Can Do Anything”
One winter some enemy soldiers were coming into a little town. In one of the houses near the town sat a little old grandmother. She was praying. “Dear God, please build a wall around us, and protect us from the soldiers,” she prayed. Her son heard her, but he didn’t believe in God. He said, "Mother, your God cannot build a wall around us in one night." But the little old grandmother kept right on praying. The next morning her son could hardly believe what he saw. He couldn’t look out of the windows. “Come here Mother,” he called. “God sent a snowstorm, and the wind has blown a big wall of snow against the house.” Now, the son believed that God can do anything and that He answers the prayers of His children. The soldiers had marched right past the house without even seeing it.
Do you worry because you have limited Gods ability or desire in your mind? “Worry doesn’t empty from tomorrow its troubles, it empties today of its strength.” In Philippians 4 Paul tells us to not worry, but get your peace of mind through prayer with God and God will guard your thoughts and worries through Jesus.
When God wants to do something for us, there isn’t anything that can stop Him. (With God nothing shall be impossible - Luke 1:37 (KJV))
APPLICATION: Do you give up on God too quickly. When praying for Gods help do you plan His answer for Him?
