Conquering the Impossible
by Sharmon Coleman
Impossible! That's what I thought when Terri Watkins Burnett, the founder of ProvenWay Ministries, asked me to take over ProvenWay as she stepped into another God-given assignment, I heard my mouth say yes and my heart scream, “No way!” I knew God had led me to this point, but I also knew I was not Terri Burnett! There were many times I almost picked up the phone to quit before I even started. However, the Holy Spirit held my hand and continued to whisper that when the Father calls, He promises to equip.
The day that I officially took over as the Executive Director of ProvenWay Ministries, my morning's devotional reading was literally titled “A Proven Way.” The focus verse for the day, Jeremiah 6:16, said "Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.” How like God! Just when I thought I would faint with fright at the magnitude of the assignment, God assured me with His word that I’m on the right path! It seemed impossible until it was done.
What is God asking you to do that seems impossible? Take that step of faith. God meets your faith at your level of obedience. ALL things are possible with God! Matthew 19:26
