October 16-All Things Are Possible
Scripture Lesson: Philippians 4:13
On this date in 1969 thanks to a Ron Swaboda double and two Oriole errors, the Mets win their fourth straight World Series game5-3. Jerry Koosman pitches a five-hitter and the Mets do the impossible and beat the highly favored Baltimore Orioles 4 games to 1. No one gave the Mets a chance to win, yet on that chilly fall day in New York it was the Mets who celebrated the World Championship.
Paul is writing to the Church at Philippi these very familiar words found in chapter 4 verse thirteen. He reminds them and us today that there is nothing we cannot do through the strength God gives us! No matter how rough life gets on or off the field, god will always be there for us giving us what we need! Paul says we can do everything, not some things, not a few things, but EVERYTHING. The key is doing it through Him and being in the center of His will.
1. Spend some time right now asking god to show you His will for your life.
2. Is there anything in your life you need the reassurance of God’s promisw found in our verse today?
3. Why should this verse give us confidence to thrive on and off the field?
The Mets accomplished what the so called experts said was impossible, they won the World Series. God is waiting for us to go through life doing what the world says is impossible for His Kingdom. Live today with confidence and faith!
