He Makes Up the Difference

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“…for when I am weak [in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful in divine strength)”
(2 Corinthians 12:10, AMP)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

No matter what weakness you think you may have, no matter what inadequacies or setbacks you’ve encountered, God wants to give you His divine strength! He wants to make up the difference and put you further ahead than you ever thought possible. One time in the Old Testament, God simply multiplied the sound of four men’s footsteps and caused them to sound like a mighty army. When their enemies heard them, they took off running. There were thousands of enemy troops running for their lives, scared to death, thinking they were being attacked by a massive army when, in fact, it was just four people! What happened? God made up the difference.

Friend, God can make you seem bigger than you really are. He can make you look more powerful. He knows how to multiply your influence, your strength, your talent and your income. You don’t have to figure it all out; all you have to do is put your trust in Him. If you will release your faith for a supernatural year and wake up every day expecting God’s far and beyond favor, then you’re going to see God show up and make the difference in every area of your life!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Heavenly Father, today I commit every area of my life to You. I trust that You will make up the difference and supply everything I need to fulfill Your purposes in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

    What difference does it make? Honestly look at the picture of RB and SATA!! These guys are way too old. What they should do is groom young ones and not blocking us. Even God’s wisdom shows that forests shed off old leaves before new ones come only then trees grow green and good timber and fruits come. RB&SATA should retire in line with global norm for REAL CHANGE. Insisting to stay on to power is causing political constipation to the youths. Even in the Holy Bible a transition happened from the Old to the New Testament. I wonder what difference this evangelist is seeing!!!

    Thanks a lot for this uplifting tune LT. It takes me back to my student days at a Church in West London, where I sang it for the first time with a group of students from around the world. I will always cherish the brotherly love that the brethren showed to me at that time.

    #3 this is not a political thread. Water & oil can’t mix.

    #4 if you openned your heart of stone, then you would find out that God is neither an illusion nor superstition. If He can raise the dead, how can He fail to heal amputees? Remember that you are only a mortal being – your creator does not need to prove his omnipotence to you. I would advise you to hold your position and seek salvation before you start to experience strange things in your life and start wondering why. God cannot be mocked! Not even on LT.

    testing 123, everything that exists both the visible and invisible is speaking to you that the Almighty God exists. Your brathing in and out is speaking to you that the almighty God exists. Your experiences in life and your education has demonstrated to you that order does not come by chance.
    It is foolishness to believe that Order came by chance. Even the word of God does say, ” a fool has said in his heart that there is no God.” As to why we have not seen in our generation the amputees been heaaled by the all compasionate God, I don’t know.

    The bible in Psalms says the fool has said in his heart there is no God! No point to argue .

    # 5 Nine Chale… Am so disgusted that you cannot domesticate a Gospel message to the reality. A difference embbedded in this incript is what Zambian people not only wish for but praying for. By the way what message do you draw from it other than infantile imagination of deism? Any way you sound shortsighted in Biblical exgesis. Ultimus finis, Jesus Christo summe doe.

    Am from a Church in the remote Zambia where life for locals is near misery. What these people prayed for is emancipation from fetters of poverty, hanger and disease. To be honest an emigrated fool of NINE CHALE @ 5 is so illusional to the plight of many innocent children, mothers and brothers in remote areas of Zambia. Really, what god is he serving? to this fool the song reminds him of old days as a student in a foreign land! what pride this is? NINE CHALE where do you live? do you have a village in Zambia or you are one of the many Nomadic Conoglese masquerading as Zambians?

    Chanda Chimba and testing 123- whatever I tell you will not convince you.But know this that God is not mocked or bribed or a respector of persons.A man will reap what he sows.You talk of people in the villages.My grandfather was an orphan in a remote village in zambia.he pleaded to go to school like others but his uncle could not afford to.However some missionaries came to the area and set up a mission school in the area and he managed to get an education though he was older than other kids.he worked very hard.he became involved in the ‘Natives council’ – a group of africans that looked after the well being of africans and communivated with the british colonialists.he with others championed alot for the betterment of lives for other villagers.He believed in the Lord and God blessed….

    continued……God blessed his life.he had lots of children all educated and living a much better life,grandchildern who have excelled their parents and great grandchildren.He taught us all of Gods faithfulness in his life.If he were alive today.I don’t think he would swope any of his earlier days as an orphaned villager.It was the stepping stone on which he built a great life.God has a purpose for everyone.If you are gonna be lazy and want $$$ to rain down from heaven -you will sufer an don’t blame God for it.If you work hard God will bless the work of your hands. god has made systems and laws governing those systems.there is the law of gravity and every sinner or saint succumbs to it.There is the law of sowing and reaping,laws of seasons.We sometimes have winter periods in our lives…

    when I was 9months pregnant one day I had labour pains and anyone seeing me would think I was suffering.but that suffering was necessary to bring forth my beautiful baby.you can’t look at someone suffering and say ther is no God.You have no idea what their tomorrow will bring.you and I can only see the now. God sees the future too.However i can not convince your unbelief but be assured one day you will find out the truth either before or after your death.

    Thanks for answering these brothers.God cannot prove to anyone that he is God, neither can he be put in a test tube.He is at times known as the ‘hound of heaven’,out looking for lost humanity.Not very far from now, Chanda Chimba III and testing 123 will be saved through his grace.

    Beauty
    I am really touched by your story.Are you an evangelist?if not, then it is time you thought of being one.

    Its quite baffling to hear what testing 123 and Chanda Chiimba 3 percive of the almighty, God cannot be taken so lightly and questioned. If you look around you the stars, the moon, sun, animals and vegetation, these did not come by accident. Trust in the Lord and believe even if you have not seen him.

    Beauty, Beauty, Beauty. Beautyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
    Girl you have a warped way of interpreting life events. Let me lay this one on you:
    Let me ask you this, is evil a tool in god’s shed? In other words, is it necessary for people to suffer in order to appreciate god? Doesn’t that sound like a contradiction to you? Good appeals to evil so that when you put up with whatever he dishes out then you can be rewarded, yes? According to many Christians, that is the same big-stick and carrot that the devil uses. There are people who said enough of this garbage and turned to crime and now they are living large.

    Has it ever occurred to you that god and the devil might be one and the same? So-mtin 2 fink bout. Click! Click!

    #20 Sululu…..you are absolutely correct.I have a warped way of interpreting life events.I’ve come to learn that Jesus had an even warped way of interpreting life.He told us to love our enemies(what!) He said give first and it will be added unto you(what!) he said seek ye first the kingdom and ALL the things you seek will be added unto you(what!)- so you are correct its all warped.Thats why religious leaders and scholars had a heard time believing him when he walked the earth. Its the common man that beleived him.Infact he says you can not inherit the Kingdom of God unless you become like a child- go figure! Have a nice week.I promise you,one day if shall all make sense to you.
