What's the secret to truly trusting God so that we can rest easy at night? How can we have the same faith and confidence as David who said: "In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety" (Ps 4:8)? The answer lies in focusing on God's greatness. When we consider God's greatness, we usually tend to think about what God can do. However, today we will explore 12 things that God can't do. You will marvel both at God's otherness and at how He became one of us in the person of Jesus... and you'll sleep better at night!
We start this hour with some of the stories making news and move to a disturbing story of why one biotech company wants to create human embryos for the purpose of harvesting organs. Good or bad idea? We finish the hour with an update on how the Gospel is changing the Middle East and why so many Muslims are hungering to know God in a deeply personal way. Join us – and get ready to lengthen your prayer list.

Tom Doyle fell in love with the Middle East on his first Biblical tour of the Holy Land. In 1995, he became an official tour guide for the state of Israel and developed a passion for ministering to the Israeli people, Arabs and Jews alike. Tom felt called into full-time ministry there in 2001 and joined e3 Partners as the Middle Eastern branch director. Tom and his wife JoAnn began working in the heart of the Islamic world shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11. His ministry to pastors in this region has opened many valuable doors for him to build key relationships in places like Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian territories of Israel. In 2001, Tom became the Middle East Director for e3 Partners and then in 2017 launched a new ministry called Uncharted. Tom is a master storyteller with several books highlighting God’s miraculous work among the Muslim people. His best known books include Dreams and Visions (2012), Killing Christians (2015), and Standing in the Fire (2017).
