A LETTER TO THE CRITICSFrom The Heart
Publish date: 05/02/1999
Just because you can’t do it – doesn’t mean I can’t do it.
Just because you can’t see it – doesn’t mean I can’t see it.
Just because you won’t do it – doesn’t mean I won’t do it.
Where you see hopelessness – I see hope.
Where you see lack – I see supernatural provision.
Where you see barriers – I see bridges.
Where you see weakness – I see God’s strength.
Where you see darkness – I see a light shining.
Where you see hindrances – I see God’s favor.
Where you see no way – I see a path.
Where you see desert – I see a river of life.
Where you see fear – I see faith in God.
Where you see sickness – I see healing power.
Where you see man’s limitations – I see God’s unlimited resources.
Where you see the curse – I see God’s abundant blessing.
Where you see sin – I see grace and mercy.
Where you see pain – I see restoration.
Where you see confusion – I see wisdom.
The critic says, “Don’t do anything. Just stand there.”
God says, “Don’t just stand there. Do something.”
God gives the grape.
The critic makes vinegar. The believer makes wine.
2 Corinthians (NKJ)
18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Ephesians 3:20-21 (NKJ)
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
