Don’t Place a Period Where God Has Placed a CommaThe Bible is filled with events that would have been hopeless if He had placed a period. However, God provided hope when He placed a comma.
Moses and the recently freed Israelites were trapped between the Red Sea and the powerful Egyptian army. Out skilled and terrified, they had no way of escape. COMMA Yet, God rolled back the waters of the Red Sea and saved His people (Exodus 14).
The trench around the walls of Jericho was 27 ft. wide and 9 ft. deep. Trained Canaanite soldiers were perched on the 17 ft. high and 5 ft. thick wall. COMMA Yet, God's army, led by Joshua, climbed over the destroyed wall to defeat the mighty army (Joshua 6).
The Midianites had terrorized the Israelites for seven years. Gideon, a judge and military leader, prepared over 29,300 men to put a stop to the violence. Before the battle 22,000 men returned home, unwilling to face the powerful enemy. Then God disqualified an additional 7,000, leaving 300 men to face 135,000 + Midianites. COMMA Yet, armed with trumpets, torches and empty jars, God led His army to victory.
David faced a mighty giant COMMA then won (I Samuel 17).
Esther faced the powerful King COMMA then saved her people (Esther).
Daniel faced the hungry lions COMMA then lived to write about it (Ch. 6).
Peter was a coward COMMA then faced persecution to preach the Word.
Paul first fought against God's people COMMA then survived beatings to bring souls to Christ.
Jesus was humiliated, beaten, hung on a cross and died COMMA then He was resurrected to sit in Heaven on the right hand of God.
God turns the impossible to favorable, the mess to a message, trial to triumph, a test to testimony, and victim to victory.
Nothing is impossible for God (Matthew 19:26).
