(Hebrews 12:1 NLT) Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
• It is not a matter of IF but WHEN.
√ God MOMENTS.
(Luke 1:26-8 NLT) … God sent the angel Gabriel … to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!”
√ God moments often seem IMPOSSIBLE.
(Luke 1:31-33 NLT) You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. …
(Luke 1:34 NLT) Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? I am a virgin.”
(Mark 10:27 NLT) Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.”
√ When the God moments come, just say YES.

(2 Timothy 1:5-6 NLT) … same faith continues strong in you. This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you …

(Acts 1:13-14 NLT) … they went to the upstairs room of the house where they were staying. …. They all met together and were constantly united in prayer, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, several other women, and the brothers of Jesus.
(Luke 2:19 NIV) But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
