Number one casualty in the church in America did not gonna be the Christian stain around staying together around Jesus Dr. Don Wilton the boys. You just heard it's gonna take a strength of the book of Ezra chapter 9 about the impossible prayer and how do we know that phrase that Scripture with God all things are possible. Today, we can see some other scriptural advances to how human I can claim that promise the impossible prayer is possible as we open God's word to get another were here for you to connect on the phone with 866-899-WORD 866-899-9673 or on our website at Be sure and sign up for daily Encouraging Word email from Dr. Don that's online at oh RG turn in your Bibles with meat is chapter 9 just want to share this with you today. I want to speak to you about praying the impossible. I want to tell you today with all the love in my heart that I want you to know I believe you can pray the impossible, and God will make it possible let's do this.

God's way. Some reading in Israel. Chapter 9 I was in Israel, Lost Creek.

I'm going to. It is in chapter 1, but this has so learned in my heart as I have soaked with hundreds of people in our church. This passage just grabbed my heart I deliciously so much please listen would you just deliberately worship God now say I'm going to just I am going to worship the Lord Jesus, I'm going to watch God just do this please big you and your marriage in your life in your convictions in your and achievement in your impossibilities, which we all deal with folks, please I beg of you just listen to what God says to you and to me this is what he showed me and I'll just starting verse five. Then at the evening sacrifice is for Rose, I rose from our self abasement with my tunic and cloak tone. I fell on my knees with my hands spread out before the Lord and I prayed over my God, I'm too ashamed and disgraced to lift up my face to you my God, because our sins are higher than our hands, not guilt has reached to the heavens, from the days of our forefathers.

Until now out. Guilt is being great because of our sins we and our kings and our priests have been subject to the sold in captivity to pillage and humiliation at the hand of foreign King as it is today, but now for a brief moment, the Lord our God has been gracious in leaving us a remnant and giving us a firm place in his century and so our God gives light to our eyes and relief in our bondage though we are slaves. Our God has not deserted us in our bondage here shown as kindness in full view of the kings of Persia. He is wanted us new life to really build the house of our God and to repair it and he is giving us a law of protection in Judah and in Jerusalem. Is there any need for me to say anything when God speaks Lost Creek for those who were able to worship together with us. We considered Israel, we came to the conclusion we sold a predicament you ever wanted to find impossible. How about these people, God's people living in exile. They weren't even in their own land. How about the fact that they land, Judah had been overrun by foreign kings and invaders in the foreign gods and they weren't even there to do anything about it. I would divided asunder their families were hurting everything of value to them had been taken away, God did for things I just mentioned this to you. This was the message Lost Creek he did for things number one God X ignited them. He provided the spark, God save. All right, you're ready is what I'm going to do for you. God God can do this. It began with God and ended with God. God didn't turn to these people and so I wanted to just call a meeting and sit down and you try and work it out because God knows that doesn't work. Have you ever tried to work out something in America today.

You want to get a consensus on something, shall we have one man one vote and decide what is wrong in his right God ignited. He's always done he's the at its extent believable. When we worship God, we are actually saying okay God going to put you out any ignited them, but he excited that excitement when when you reach the label of impossibility. One of the big casualties is excitement.

God gave them the mission God said this is what and how you going to do this you going to go back and you gonna reboot. This is what it's going to look like he gave them the excitement, the reason the marriage gets to a point that it does. After years of marriage when it gets to the impossible. I guarantee you the one thing that's gone out of that marriage is excitement what so exciting about being together with her within you kidding me church what warts they look forward to when you get to impossible God, not any ignited them, but he excited them dead in the mission and then he united them. You talk about impossible. Number one casualty in the church in America today is going to be the issue of Christians staying together around Jesus number one nation not going to be what we do.

It's going to be who we serve. He united them and in the story and Israel is so beautiful he did the impossible. He just brought them all together.

I watch that all these years here at First Baptist Church in Spartanburg frames out.

They trust me, who say can't be done. Yes, it can your witch doormat who said you can't bring hundreds upon hundreds of people together. Excuse me you think any of us different. Is there an opinion in the house, a better way of doing everything course to how to explain the church so united I'm speaking to someone right now they I'm placing you with the word of the Lord, I good friends whose church is off folding part is not over Jesus. God united them. He does this help you think you ever going to come together as one in your marriage unless God is tried will you been doing that for the lost 25 years trying just sit down and work it out. You got beyond sitting down working at your at the impossible label because as soon as you sit down and try and work it out. It takes two minutes, and one of you see as well. I'm just gonna tell you one thing, and there it goes again. You know I want to say do I have a witness I'm not going to do that on a limited what is the future look like we got a look at the future through God's eyes.

He ignited them he excited them.

He united them and then he invited them. He said no, all of you on all your families to get together. Let's do this, you know, I said let's do this altogether because God can do this. So what lay ahead for Israel info these people was arduous difficult was impossible. I could not of blamed anyone of those families in Babylon for sign. Please regarding vector land. Give me a break.

We don't even have enough camels to get where we gonna live like token overrule our houses. What are we going to do about all the foreigners they mean do you not understand how what you mean how do we get our kids across the mountains. They know going to survive we not have enough water for the trip. This was impossible.

You and I read a passage like this we say what you knew there they go. This was impossible.

That's why God is telling us. So what, it is rendered. Please forgive the interruption will be back in just a moment with the rest of today's message with Dr. Don Wilton as we take this break Dr. Don Wilton remind you of two things, one where Babel would love to pray with you anytime of the 866-899-WORD number that's 866-899-9673 and were also here to encourage you beyond this broadcast wonderful daily devotionals you can receive via email or and also great resources like this all began with Dr. everything people also finance is foundational to purchase for yourself.

Praying for you 24 hours a day at 866899673 so what is just. I want to just give this to you out of my burden for you because I love you and you, my family, my friends, you my neighbors. You mean the world to me. I'm just one person but God gave us to me, but he gave us he's been giving this to a lot of people. He did for things. Number one, he humbled himself. Verse five you know he in the Jewish custom of unitary ones tunic cloak getting on the knees and then there's a beautiful expression, holding up your hands. I don't think God's telling us that we need tearout clothes and that's not the point here. The point here is this is an act of humility before God. You cannot go God holding on to our own attitude.

I stuffed well Lord okay okay tell me something I don't know doesn't work well.

Lord, come and talk to you as long as everybody knows that this is the most important thing we deal with right now. Lord I wanted. I sure okay I heard what the preacher said let's get on deal with this thing with marriage but just as long God as you know that she is just you know I can't stand the way she does ABC do you need and as long as God you keep that in my don't let her get away with that I'm willing to listen to you.

That's what I'm told that's out, that's very cool to do.

Y'all pray, but none humble yourself. Get on your face hold your hands up to the Lord and say Lord Jesus all you number two. He prayed for six verse six is so powerful and prayed and prayed. Verse six and prayed, he humbled himself. Verse six pride.

The third thing he did was he confessed verse six and seven came right out of the chute of God.

I'm too ashamed. He confessed his own son. He confessed the sin of his people.

He just confessed he just said guilty. I also I'm not asking you to do this.

God's asking us if we want to pray the impossible do it humbly pray for me and would confectionery the requirement God requires that you go back now to Mary Jo what whatever it is you're impossible. You go to do business with the load.

But there's one more and I want you to write this would done if you can. He even vote evoked is not a great mood evoked what is rooted. He even vote EVOKED if you've never heard of that word is a powerful word.

He evoked what is it mean it means to bring or recall to one's conscious mind.

If you evoked a memory, it means that you out there doing something, and you evoked a memory, you you recall, you bring back to mind that precious time that you had with your mother before she died and little remaining your heart and life is precious memory I have a very dear friend who traveled a long way to see her mother and got there just before she died and my wife and I were saying how incomplete of me precious thankful just to be able when you he even vote brought back to memory right in the middle of his impossibility. This strong if if I was privileged to be partnering with you and counseling you and your marriage right now. I would ask you to evoked to bring back to your conscious mind all the wonderful thing about when you met your dating the years, the joy, the love the fun little evoked, you bring it back. He brought to memory to his conscious memory God the Spirit does this water needed so here someone God's grace just you. You can run this through God is being gracious God's grace God when you evoked God's grace. You remember that God is merciful and he loves you. Just because he does because you deserve it.

He evoked God's gift God gives to us 20 seasons being gracious and he gave us a firm placing his century, God is a giving God he evoked the fact of God's gift to you both evoked he broke to his conscious memory that God is light liquid decision. He says he gives life to our eyes. Okay so what happens when you get to impossible shadows stalk dismal fog.

You can sit in the most beautiful home the most beautiful wife husband with incredible family so blessed and yet be in the dark, impossible will make you really behind unhappy, followed up he evoked God's relief since he gives a little relief in avant-garde is a relief giving God and by the way, that would relief means he eases the heart.

He makes the way he shows hope that would relief provide relief means, man.

I'm in this and all of a sudden when you evoked back into your consciousness.

God is going to bless you.

He evoked God's dependability. He said even though we are safe. God has not deserted us like that the you know what happens when you get to the impossible level. You think God's deserted us. God hasn't gone anywhere in deserted us. God has not promised, she was gone has not left for New Mexico. God is not left for Minnesota. God is not going overseas, God is not somewhere else. God is everywhere, God is doing the same thing for the people in New Mexico and in Minnesota and everywhere he's eternal God, he's magnificent God, by the way there's enough of God to go around.

You have to worry about having a corner on the market.

He evoked God's kindness that would be. He shown us kindness. America. America someone God's kindness. God is kind and loving evoked God's ability look that he wanted us you life to reboot. It's in evoking God's ability to begin again fresh rain.

You are not referred to marriage a lot, not just picking on marriage but you know it is possible to be married for 40 years and suddenly feel like you're on honeymooning God can do that segments impossible. God can bring his son home again back into your home like you going to look back and say what God can rescue you. God can make you whole and and finally would not he.

He evoked God's action. That's a big one is not that loss statement given us a wall of protection so they really for things that is rooted praying the impossible, he humbled.
