I Can With God’s Help!

[213 words]

God has always worked through His people who say, “With God’s Help, I can!” For forty years the Israelites wandered in the wilderness because ten men said, “We can’t.” The wilderness of Arabia was scattered with the bones of thousands of Israelites who agreed with those two men who said, “We can’t.” “We can’t” makes excuses and challenges every attempt. Out of those thousands of Israelites who came out of Egypt, only two went into the land of Canaan, we still remember those two men: Joshua and Caleb. These men had faith in God and said, “We can, with God’s help!” “We can” make a way! “We can” attempts every challenge!

Paul was another man of faith who said, “I can.” In Philippians 4:13 Paul stated, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Paul like Joshua and Caleb is remembered for saying, “I can with God’s help!”

Today, Christ calls His church to action. We are commanded to “go” into all the world, to seek, save, and serve. We too are given a choice as those Israelites were given. We will either be remembered as a person who said, “I can with Christ’s help,” or forgotten because we responded to God with “I can’t.” Which one will you be?
