Do you feel God has called you to a specific task that you know is impossible for you to accomplish?
The task ahead may seem unreasonable, outrageous and shocking, and there is no way of even thinking there is a possibility of coming close to fulfilling the mission.
You feel inadequate. The pressure is too great and there is too much at stake. Actually, if you are a child of God and you know He has called you to a specific calling, I want to congratulate you for coming to the realization that you are totally incapable of doing this.
God never calls people who already know their capabilities and have confidence in their own potential and strengths.
f you feel vulnerable and know you can’t do the mission He called you to, you can be at peace knowing that He will make a way where there seems to be no possibility. Then the Holy Spirit will help you to enjoy your own weaknesses and incapabilities, instead of becoming frustrated and discouraged with your inadequacies.
Through this process you will become humble, as you are so aware of your needs. Then God comes along with His grace to show you the way on, for “It is God who is at work in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” (Phil. 2:13, 14)
It truly is His pleasure to flow through you to accomplish the impossible calling you have on your life. The greater you depend on Him, the more He will trust you to let Him work through you.
Maybe you have lost hope in your impossible situation. You know He has called you and yet nothing seems to fall into place. You have waited for God to come and step next to you, but He seems far away and your calling seems to be lost. My friend, let me encourage you to not give up hope. Let time work for you and establish you in the faith, and in His time He will show you the way to make your calling sure. He loves you and is training you to become like Him.
I hear Jesus say: “You are My lamb and I love you. When I placed My burden on you to go forth and reach this world with My love, I also placed within you the capabilities to perform the calling I gave you. Rest in Me, as I do the work through you one day at a time. Soon I will release you to work in my vineyard and you shall bring forth much fruit with a joyful heart, and your burdens I will carry.”

Drawn by God
This devotional book has 52 short chapters and 176 pages. Each chapter starts with a question, has a biblical background scripture that is appropriate for the title of the chapter and then discusses the answer to that query through the eyes of the author’s vision of God. The chapter ends with a prophetic word from Jesus’ heart saying “I hear Jesus say…” Every chapter ends with a drawing by the author or an inspired artist who knows Jesus intimately.
The book will make you hungry to know more of Who God is and answers questions like, “Does He really care about the small stuff in my life? How can I give Him first place when I feel like I am losing it and I feel He does not love me anymore? Do we need conflict in our life? What about generational blessings? How far will He go with me? What about impossible situations? How do I ever attain to living a life that is bathed in God’s rest?”
The book also shares personal examples of how the author faced tremendous difficulties in her own life. How in her youth during the war in Holland they were hiding Jews right under the nose of the Nazis who occupied a castle next door. The pain she experienced in her broken youth when she felt like no-one even realized she was around. How God became her Father and her Mother when she herself was just a young mother, longing to be free from much bondage.
The book is based on spontaneous prophetic art and how God wants to speak to each one of us not only through His precious word, but through anything that comes our way
Spontaneous Prophetic art is practiced in some churches where the artist steps forward as the worship starts and asks God for a spontaneous picture for the congregation. After the worship, the artist explains the meaning of the picture and shares what she or he senses God wants to say to the people at that point in time.
Most of us have heard the maxim, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We may try a hundred word-related ways to comprehend a truth, but somehow, pictures engrave the heart. When the picture matches the words well, the reader is more deeply impacted.
Each devotional highlights an aspect of life – a challenge, a question, an irritation, a potential decision – and offers biblical truths in a practical, encouraging voice. See sight panel how to obtain this reviving book. Orders outside the USA pleas pay an extra $5 for shipping by air.
