Beyond "the sky's the limit"

I love this quote by A. W. Tozer: "How completely satisfying to turn from our limitations to a God who has none." 

We serve a mighty God and nothing is impossible for Him! I found a list of a few examples of what we might say compared to what the Lord says that I thought I'd share.

We say that we can't figure it out. God says that He will direct our steps.

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
-Proverbs 3:5&6

We say that we are too tired. The Lord says that He will give us rest.

"Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
-Matthew 11:28-30

We say, "It's impossible." God says that nothing is impossible for Him. 

"...The things which are impossible with men are possible with God."
-Luke 18:27

We say that nobody loves us. God loves you!

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
John 3:16

We say we can't be forgiven. God says He has forgiven us.

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."
-Romans 8:1

We say that it's not worth it. The Lord says it WILL be worth it.

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose."
-Romans 8:28

We say we're not smart enough. God says He will give us wisdom.

"But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption."
-1 Corinthians 1:30

We say we aren't able. God says we are.

"And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work."
-2 Corinthians 9:8

We say we can't go on. He says:

"...My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness."
-2 Corinthians 12:9

We say we can't do it. God says we can do all things through Him.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me."
-Phillipians 4:13

We say we can't manage. God says that He will supply all of our needs.

"But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."
-Phillipians 4:19

We say we're afraid. The Lord says He has not given us fear.

"For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
-2 Timothy 1:7

We say we feel all alone. God says:

"...I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."
-Hebrews 13:5
