You Can

Galatians 5:22-23 New Living Translation (NLT)
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Jesus,
I can’t, but you can…
I can’t heal the sick…
But in the name of Jesus, you said, we will lay hands on the sick and they shall recover…
I can’t cast out demons…
But Jesus you said, In your name we can bind them and cast them out and they have to obey…
I can’t save a soul…
But Jesus, you said, if we believe in our heart and confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus Christ that we shall be saved…
I can’t turn water into wine…
But Jesus you said, Greater works than these shall we do because you go to the Father…
I can’t raise the dead…
But Jesus you said if we ask anything in your name and believe and do not doubt, we can say to this mountain be removed and cast into the sea and it shall be done…
I can’t calm the sea…
But you spoke to the word…Peace be still and all was calm
I can’t walk on water…
But You did, and you bid Peter too also…
I can’t do anything of myself…
But, I CAN DO ALL things…Through Christ Jesus who gives me strength…
Jesus IN you is, our Hope…
Lord, here I am…
I open my heart to you, come into my heart and take all of me and fill me with your God Nature…
Let me know you…
Let me walk with you
Let me talk with you
Let my thoughts be your thoughts and your ways my ways…
Be the lantern that lights my path…
Be the joy and hope and faith that will carry me all the way to where you dwell
That I may dwell with you forever!
And that you may know me…transform me…
Take my heart of stone and give me one of flesh…
Let my will become your will…
You’re nature is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience…
You’re nature is Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-control. There is no law against these things.
I can’t, but you can!
But, Jesus…
I can surrender my life to you
I can pray and believe
I can worship you and you only
I can sing your praises
I can stand in the place of others and intercede for them
I can read your word and obey your word
I can sit with you in heavenly places here and now
I can honor you with my heart and not just lip service
I can have faith knowing in whom I believe
I can humble myself before you and before my fellow man and walk upright before you
I can keep my eyes on you and listen when you speak
I can love you and love others as I love myself
I can serve you with gladness
I can forgive
I can be an example of your grace
I can give, and seek and knock on heaven’s door…
I can help the poor
I can do all these things, because you give me strength,
In the Name of Jesus, I can!

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
