Against All Odds


We often look at the odds of something happening and decide by that if God will do something or not. But God is bigger than the odds. He can go against all the odds and go far beyond our own abilities. We simply need to trust in Him.

William Carey, the pioneer missionary to India, went with this motto: Expect great things from God; Attempt great things for God. We live in an age when the devil seems to be getting all the victories. We serve a God who is greater than the devil. When will we learn to fully trust Him to do His work in and through us?
