Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
We say “no way”, He says “Yahweh!”.
If you’ve been following along on our Facebook page, you’ve already heard our modern day Loaves and Fishes testimony.
After winning the Giving of Life $10,000 grant, we excitedly praised God for His provision to provide cataract surgery to 166 blind people in India. That was our vision based on what we knew. 166 surgeries at $60 each = $9,960. Simple math. It is what we relayed to the donor and that is what they expect from us.
But God is able to do immeasurably more than we ever could ask or think or imagine! Eph 3:20
We received word from our partner in India (Depressed People’s Welfare Association) that by the end of the year 2012 (the next 5 months), with this $10,000, we will have provided 15 Mobile Eye Camps, providing treatment at the campsite to a minimum of 4,500 patients with minor eye ailments, provide eyeglasses to at least 300 people with refractive errors, and do surgeries on 500 cataract patients!
FIVE HUNDRED CATARACT SURGERIES???
What do you say to a God like this? Is there anything you CAN say? Or do you fall on your face and worship with sounds barely recognizable as human? Yeh, that’s pretty much it.
My favorite part about LoveManifest is there is no way any of this could be done on human power alone. No way. I am positive the moment we were to take the reigns and say “ok God, we’ve got it from here, and this is what we’re gonna do”, it would tank. So we hang on to Jesus with both hands. We trust He’s leading us where He wants us to go, even when it doesn’t make sense.
This doesn’t mean it’s easy because with every victory there was first a battle, but with every battle I get a little bit more excited. It means He’s about to show up. A Mighty Warrior in our midst!
The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy.
– Zephaniah 3:17
