STAND UP TO IT!
Philippians 4:13 (NKJV) I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Irma Elder built one of the most successful woman-owned businesses in her country, making her a role model of service to her community, state and country. Undaunted, she became the CEO of Elder Automotive Group and the first woman to own a Ford dealership in the Detroit area. The same woman came to the United States in 1946, not being able to speak a word in English language.
Having the nerve for success, Irma took over the Troy Ford dealership after his husband’s death in 1983 and built it into one of the largest woman-owned businesses in the America. Never becoming a victim of circumstances, she stood up to the responsibility and beat the record.
You never know what God has on the other side for you until you stand up and take a step. Despite the feeling of inadequacy, stand up and go, GO WITH GOD. Stand boldly in the place of prayer. Don’t cower at life’s challenges. Don’t let life beat you up. You have access to the most powerful Throne on the planet. Use it!
CONFESSION: I press into the zone of possibilities. God (Grace On Duty) is my advantage!
PRAYER: Lord, destroy every impossibility as I walk with Your Word.
