When Pigs Fly & (Irma Update)

"When pigs fly" is a way of saying that something will never happen.   Such as when will I ever eat liver?  When pigs fly.  When will I ever root for the Patriots?  When pigs fly.  You get the idea.  

Is there any situation when you can say, "When pigs fly" with God?  Sure there are.  

God will never say WOW!

Hebrews 4:13  And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

God is all-knowing.  You cannot do anything that will make Him say, "Wow, I didn't see that coming."  Or, "Oops, I guess I shouldn't have done that." 

God will never give up on you!
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

God will always be in your corner.  Even when you don't deserve it, He will never, ever give up on you.   As the old song says, "He's as close as the mention of His name." 

God will never think anything less than His best intentions for you
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

God is good, and that means He wants to do great things in your life.  The key to receiving His blessing is to follow Him.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I will give up on you, when pigs fly.  AMEN

P.S.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma we have learned that the Keys are in serious need of canned meats and veggies.  No power, no grocery stores and they are running out of food.  Also, they can use whatever camping supplies.  Many homes have been condemned leaving people sleeping in their front yards.  If you would like to donate locally, you can bring your donation to the church.  If you do not live locally, please give to Convoy of Hope.  They are addressing the need also, but they need your help.
