Jesus calls us to do things that we are not able to do. When He calls us to do impossible things, like step out on to water and walk, are we going to trust and obey Him? Or are we going to sit safely in our boat under the pretense of not being presumptuous?
Great Sermon! This is so true. Some of the biggest disputes I've had with believers were over their unbelief that something was possible. We SAY I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, but for most it's just a cliche. I was raised in a family that believed deeply in God's sovereignty. The problem was, this was the excuse for never praying anything but the most routine of prayers. Ex: we wouldn't ask God to heal someone, because He knew they were sick and if He planned to heal them, He would heal them. Listening to George Mueller changed all of that for me. God started to answer prayers. Then, Christians would get angry, and say, You can't ask God for that! Why not? He can always say no. If we started asking God for things expecting He might do them, how might our lives change, and what glory might we see? God wants to use us to gain glory for Himself. How can He do that if we are always secondguessing what kinds of ways God will use to gain glory?
He will sometimes answer a prayer and do something extraordinary, just so other people know beyond a doubt it's a miracle! Or to enlarge someone 's faith. Let's be honest with ourselves. Are we really afraid of presumption or do we just lack faith God can do it.

Great Sermon! An AMAZING message! I keep coming back to listen to it over and over again. I have never quite heard this text expounded the way Brother Tim Conway does. It encouraged me greatly in the Lord! Praise GOD!
