Rebecca and Russell’s doctors had told them they couldn’t have children. But God had other ideas, and ten years later Rebecca conceived. The pregnancy was a healthy one; and when the contractions started they excitedly rushed to the hospital. The hours of labor grew long and more intense, and Rebecca’s body still wasn’t progressing enough for delivery. Finally, the doctor decided she needed to perform an emergency C-section. Fearful, Rebecca sobbed for her baby and herself. The doctor calmly said, “I will do my best, but we’re going to pray to God because He can do more.” She prayed with Rebecca, and Bruce, a healthy baby boy, was born fifteen minutes later.

That doctor knew her dependence on God and His power. She recognized that although she had the training and skill to do the surgery, she still looked to God for His help and to guide her hands (Psalm 121:1–2). It’s encouraging to hear about highly skilled people, or anyone, who recognizes they need Him—because, honestly, we all do. He is God; we are not.

God alone “is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20–21). Let’s have a humble heart to learn from Him and to trust Him in prayer “because He can do more” than we ever could.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. I hope you find today's reading uplifting.

It's titled the power of God, and it was written by and see us.

Rebecca and Russell's doctors told them they couldn't have children that God had other ideas, and 10 years later, Rebecca conceived the pregnancy was a healthy one and when the contractions started, the couple excitedly rushed to the hospital.

Yet the hours of labor grew long and more intense, and Rebecca's body still wasn't progressing enough for delivery. Finally, the doctor decided she needed to perform an emergency C-section fearful. Rebecca sobbed for her baby and herself. The doctor calmly assured her saying I will do my best that we were going to pray to God because he can do more. She prayed with Rebecca and 15 minutes later Bruce a healthy baby boy was born.

The doctor understood her dependence on God and his power. She recognized that although she had the training and skill to do the surgery, she still needed God's wisdom, strength, and help to guide her hands. It's encouraging to hear about highly skilled people or anyone who recognize the need him because honestly we all do keys God, we are not. He alone is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine.

Let's have a humble heart to learn from him and to trust him in prayer because he can do more than we ever could. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is Psalm 121 I lift up my eyes to the mountains where does my help come from my help comes from the Lord, the maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip.

He who watches over you will not slumber. Indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord watches over you. The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm people watch over your life. The Lord will watch over your coming and going, both now and forever more.

Let's pray dear God, maker of heaven and earth. Thank you for watching over us as the Psalm says you never leave us.

You never sleep and when we are in a situation it's out of our control, remind us of this passage because you can provide all the help will ever need. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus name that we pray.

Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
