Just a Thought…

               GET UP

In the Louis Giglio video Bible study series ” Comeback” he entitled one of his messages, ” GET UP!”  Are you stagnant?  Are you frozen?  Are you feeling unable?  Would God want you there?  There are scriptures after scriptures where God tells people to GET UP!  Interestingly, they are all different circumstances, and said for various reasons, which gives us no excuse!  The enemy of your soul wants you “frozen” in your faith so you are not transformed in who God wants you to be.  God wants you transformed!  What is preventing it in your life?  Sometimes the solution is just to get up!  Don’t be stuck!  How can we?  Well the Bible says that I (we) can do All things through Christ who strengthens us! ( Phil 4:13).  So it’s through Him.  It’s believing that He can even when you can’t! Let God work through you!  If you are preventing Him to do so, then you really need to repent and make that right with Him.  Let Him in!  Believe that He CAN do the impossible, because HE CAN!  Never give up!  Here are the verses that I found where God says to get up!:
