Ethan Hunt who is on the IMF Team, the Impossible Missions Force. When everyone else fails Ethan gets the job done, on time and every time. No mission is too big for ethan Hunt and his IMF Team. Movies have always been great vehicles for stirring up the emotions and making everyone go home and feel good. The good guy wins, the bad guys loses and the hero gets the girl…..sigh. However in reality this ideology does not happen, not always.
I do have a friend that sticks closer than a brother, who is there when I need him the most and He also rescues me in times of trouble….every time. His success record for achievement not even 100 Ethan Hunts put together will ever come close too. My friends name…..Jesus Christ.
How great is my God? Well, let me show you.
Job 37: 5 “God’s voice thunders in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.”
Job 38:1 “Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Now gird up your loins like a man, and I will ask you, and you instruct me! Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding, Who set its measurements? Since you know. Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk? Or who laid its cornerstone”
Wow, talk about what a mighty God we serve because, “now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us (Eph.3:20). He is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we could ever imagine or ever believe in prayer.
My God who created the heavens and earth the Lord God Almighty says in His own words, “What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”(Romans 8:31)
Amen! Who can be against us….ever. No matter what we face, no matter where we go, no matter how bad the opposition or how bad the persecution, Jesus is always there to sustain us, comfort us and if need be carry us home to heaven. Either way we win every time. So we must not lean on our own understanding but to trust completely in him. To let everything go and let God bring the solution to your mind, let him solve your problems and your battles for the scriptures says the battles the Lords(1 Sam 17:47).
Lean on His wisdom for in Isaiah 55:8-9 says, “for my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth,so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
What a great God we do indeed serve! Encouraged one another with this truth and next time you watch Mission Impossible remember we have a God who’s success rate for solving the impossible is better than Ethan Hunt’s.
Intimacy With Christ
