When we consider Jesus’ all sufficient power and how He might choose to work in our lives, we know that He can work things out for us, but we may not really understand how. Pastor Ford explains that lack of understanding can sometimes cause us to have a lack of faith. But we need to trust that Jesus is going to turn our obstacle into an opportunity. And, we need to obey Him, even though what He’s doing doesn’t make sense to us.
Pastor James Ford Jr. has been the senior pastor of Christ Bible Church of Chicago, located on the south side of Chicago, Ill., for over 35 years. He also serves as the president of Impact Ministries, an outreach ministry committed to strengthening families in the South Shore community of Chicago.
