Spiritual Sundays

singing birds

Go, borrow vessels al large for yourself from all your neighbors, even empty vessels; do not get a few.
2 Kings 4:3

Commentary: In the spiritual world we must attempt things so big for God that unless He helps us we will fall flat on our faces. Only then will He get full credit for what is accomplished, and only then will this knowledge keep us humbly aware that but for His blessings we are nothing. It is His work and His success-not ours.
Tommy Barnett

Thank you Charlotte and Ginger for hosting Spiritual Sundays!

I want HIm to do things through me and others to know He is the One....Thanks for this encouragment...Have a great weekend.

Tommy Barnett had it right. We can step out in full abandon to accomplish great things with the strength and grace of God. I pray for the strength to step out. I know the Lord will meet me there. Great post. God bless.

Happy Sunday and God bless you and your family!

I sent my daughter to Barnes and Noble to get the book...can't wait to get started!

I so agree, without His blessings we are nothing. I'm going to be so busy this month that I may not get the book read but look forward to hearing more about it! Have a great Sunday!

Such good advice. Tommy Barnett should know. He has done great things, or God has done great things through him. I think most churches have not learned that lesson.

Interesting... Hubs and I were talking at lunch today about the fine line between humility and being brazen enough to take on a project that everyone else thinks is impossible. Seems to me that if you truly have the faith...NOTHING should be or seem impossible!
