Big Point:

Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing. Romans 4:17 NLT

There are certain dead-end words in life: cancer, divorce, bankruptcy, infertility, and unemployment, to name a few. How do you know when you're at a dead end? You know it when things get out of your control.

When you're at a dead end and you're waiting for deliverance, you need to remember this: The situation may be out of your control, but it's not out of God's control. When you face a dead end, don't focus on what you can't do. Focus instead on what God can do.

There are two things God can do that you can't do: He can “bring the dead back to life and create new things out of nothing” (Romans 4:17 NLT). If God can give life to a dead man, He can bring life to a dead career. He can bring life to a dead marriage. He can bring life to a dead dream. He can bring life to a financial dead end.

When you face things that are out of your control, you need something more than a positive mental attitude. You need faith in God because He can control things when you can't. Most of life is beyond your control, so you need faith far more than you need positive thinking.

The Bible says, “What is impossible with men is possible with God” (Luke 18:27 NIV). God turns crucifixions into resurrections. He specializes in the impossible. It's called “miracles,” and He can do one in your life! God is ready to turn your dead end into deliverance.
