Kim and I are in the final week of our ministry/family trip to the Midwest. Today, we are in Ponca City, OK with my daughter and her family. It has been great seeing them for a few days at a time, every week we have been here. We love playing with our Okie grandsons, Landon and Jace. They are so much fun!
We pray your summer has been and will continue to be a time of relaxing, enjoying family and friends, and getting away from your everyday routine of life!
Yes I Can!
A few weeks ago, the Holy Spirit dropped these 3 words in my spirit: “Yes I Can!” He immediately started showing me through His Word, how people face obstacles, challenges, and attacks in their lives! He said, “no matter what people face, they need to be reminded that they can overcome any situation they face because of all I went through and did for them through my death, burial, and resurrection.”
He instructed me to encourage you and others. He said because of what He said and did, we can say “Yes I Can” to any situation we face. Remember Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” No matter what you are facing, everything in the unseen realm is working together for your good. Believe God for His favor and abundant life and you will see Him come through for you in the natural realm.
In Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing will be impossible.” It does not matter what you are going through, God is able with every impossible situation you face, to do a miracle for you. Just look to Him and say to yourself, Yes I Can!
3 John 2, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” God compares our prosperity and health to our salvation. That is so awesome! In one translation He said “above all things.” There is nothing higher than that. So above everything in the world and in heaven, above everything, He wants you to prosper and be in good health so you can use your prosperity to bless the world. “Yes I Can!”
Ephesians 3:20, “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.” Notice the words “above all.” We say those same two words in 3 John 2.
So twice God has said to us, that He is willing to do above all, just for us in situations in life that we face. So nothing is impossible for Him. Just use the power that is within you, and that power is your faith in God. Go read Mark 11:22-26 to see your faith soar with God and watch your miracles start now!
So no matter what you are facing, you can say, “Yes I Can,” because God is working on your behalf!
Because of what Jesus said and did, He has enabled you to say, “Yes I Can.”
Testimony of “Yes I Can”
Those of us who preach the Gospel, also get a chance to live on what we preach. Kim and I were driving our car in Tulsa a few days ago, and the engine started to cut out. When it did that, the engine would struggle to continue. Then the engine light came on, and it hesitated some more.
Then the engine light went off and the engine ran fine. This continued for a couple of minutes, finally Kim and I agreed we needed to drive the car to the Hyundai Dealer. Kim said as we drove, this will be a great testimony for God. All I could hear in my spirit was, “Yes I Can.”
Once we drove the car there, told them what was wrong, they took the car in to see what was wrong with it. Our friends came and picked us up because it was going to take a while for them to get to the car. They later called me and said the “bad news” was the engine had broken internally, probably a rod had busted loose. So the engine was “fried.”
Our service agent said he and the dealership had never seen this make and model car ever go past 242,000 miles. I always believe for God to make our things last longer, and believed God to help this car go over 250,000 miles. The car had 272,000 + miles on it, when we took it in.
They decided to call the company, and the company agreed with the General Manager at the dealership, that because their engine had gone over 272,000 miles, one which they had never seen or heard of, they would put a new engine in our car at no cost to us!!!! Glory to God!!!
They also decided to give us a rental car for the time they have our car, at no cost to us! Can I get a witness, Praise the Lord!!!
And it looks like once the new engine has been installed, they will probably ship the car to us in NJ at no cost to us. They said we can even turn the rental car in, once we have our car back, to a location in NJ!!! Can you say, Glory to God!!
A new engine will cost somewhere between $6-9,000. God is so good. So we are now driving a 2019 Hyundai Tuscon rental car, which we will take back to NJ with us next Tuesday! Praise God!!
So let me encourage you, no matter what you are facing, no matter how big the giant, God has a stone that will kill that giant and put you in a place of victory, as you say and believe, “Yes I Can.” If He did this for us, He will do it for you! “Yes You Can” because Jesus says for you to say, “Yes I Can.”
