God Can Do This - New Series

Praying The Impossible
Ezra 9:5-9
Dr. Don Wilton


Are there circumstances, relationships, or situations in your life that seem impossible? Then take heart. We serve a God for whom nothing is impossible. Today’s message comes from the Old Testament book of Ezra, a man who wrote when the exiled people of Israel were facing a long list of impossibilities. During those days God gave His people a mission and brought them together to accomplish His purposes. However, what lay ahead for Ezra and the people was a seemingly arduous, undoable task. So what did Ezra do?
Today Dr. Wilton’s message centers around Ezra’s response to impossibility. If Christians who face overwhelming obstacles want to pray the impossible, then look at Ezra’s actions. In the midst of difficulties he humbled himself before God and prayed. Through it all Ezra evoked or remembered God’s grace, His light, His kindness, His protection. Christians can do the same, knowing that we are God’s dearly loved children.
God can rescue you and make you whole. He loves you with an unfailing love. With God nothing is impossible!

We can’t wait to allow groups to begin meeting on campus for ministry events. In accordance with CDC and DHEC regulations, the following factors will influence every request to meet indoors on campus:


  1. The current community activity of COVID-19.
  2. The size and activity of the group and the size of the venue being requested.
  3. The overall church calendar and the need to clean between groups.


  • The FBS staff is meeting weekly over the local activity of the virus, which will influence our decision on what activities can meet on campus for the following two weeks.
  • In order to keep everyone’s safety and health our number one priority, the church also reserves the right to cancel any church-sponsored events, even up to the day of the event.
