"Call to me and I will answer you, and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know. " Jeremiah 33:3

"Jesus looked at them and said, "With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God." Mark 10:27 ESV

One day I read the following during my quiet time; Steel is iron plus fire, diamonds are coal plus tremendous pressure. Steel without fire is just iron, diamonds without tremendous pressure are just coal.

I began pondering, what if we considered all of our life, every aspect of it, in light of the truth that GOD IS WITH US? Isaiah 41:10 Amplified says; "Fear not, there is nothing to fear, for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My victorious right hand of rightness and justice." No matter what we face if we intentionally bring God into it, He changes everything!

After all;

Greed, plus God = Contentment! 1 Timothy 6:6-8
A lost sinner, plus God = Salvation! Romans 10:9-11,13
