He Is Able (Pastor Lezek Mocha, Assoc. Genl. Supt. Poland A/G)
God is doing mighty things in Poland, & your faithfulness has helped that mission go forth. The new vehicle you helped us purchase has enabled us to extend the ministry.
Two focuses of ministry - 1) Local ministry at Oasis of Love. Includes Missions field of India. 2) Church planting - minimum 3 churches or year. Building orphanages in India.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. (Ephesians 3:20 NLT)
God is greater . . .
1) . . . than our weaknesses. (Our weakness does not limit God)
We all have weaknesses. We are called to do what we can in our weakness and let God take care of that we cannot do.
We need to be strong in the Lord, by the power of the Holy Spirit. David, Gideon, Jehoshaphat's musicians, others demonstrate, "Not by might. Not by power, but by My Spirit, says the Lord.
2) . . . than our prayers
Our text says, ". . . more than we might ask . . . ." In Acts, they prayed for Peter's release, but didn't believe Rhoda, when she said he was at the door. Example of Day of Pentecost service in his city, "can't believe this many people worshipping God in Sports Arena. Pentecostal pastor (Lezek) asked to develop spiritual program for city anniversary celebration, in a Roman Catholic dominated city..
3) . . . than our thoughts
Text says, ". . . More than we might . . . Think." Battleground for Christians is our thoughts. Every action begins with intentions. Carnal thinking = carnal actions. Spiritual thinking = Spirit-led actions. Stop thinking small thoughts and start to think big. Naaman & Elijah, "I thought . . . ."
4) . . . than our difficulties.
What we focus on becomes magnified in iur thinking. Focus on problem, it becomes bigger. Focus on God & He becones bigger. Lezek learned this before he was saved. Anecdote of his mother praying when Lezek was 14. His mother prayed for God to hold back the rain until harvest complete & He did.
