Count the Stars by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/18/11

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: When God calls you to do something, He provides everything it takes to get it done. God told Abram that he would have a son in his old age. The problem was that Abram’s wife was barren.

So relying on his own ability, Abram tried coming up with plans to help God out. Eventually, God took Abram out into a beautiful starlit night. He wanted Abram to realize how incredibly powerful He was. So God asked Abram to count the stars and then said, “So shall your descendants be.” The Bible says simply, “Abram believed God.”

What has God called you to do? Instead of looking for ways you can fulfill it in your own power, focus on God’s ability. If He can place every star in the sky, surely He has the power to bring about whatever He’s called you to do.
