The answers to all our excuses

The excuse The promise
The task is too tough God has chosen you!
I don’t have what it takes God always equips those he calls!
The time is not right God with us!
A dangerous message God rescues and God prevails!
Let’s talk about it… God’s power through obedience!

 

Has God called you?

  • Then He will fulfil his purposes in you
  • He will equip you
  • He will enable you
  • He will protect you
  • He will Accompany you

Are you obeying His commands?

  • Then He is with you to protect you.

Are you obedient to what He asks you?

  • Then He will accomplish His purposes, no matter how people react.
