Our God who is able!
We are certain as christians and blessed with a faith that can believe that our God is a great and omnipotent God who is able to do anything. Paul says it so explicitly....
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Eph. 3:20-21
Yes! Our God is able! We have come to believe that in our faith, we know in our hearts that God is able to do anything for us. He is able to break through for us. He is able to give us the miracle we have been waiting for. Whether it is healing power, financial break through, restoration for our soul or move a mountain for us.... Our God is able.
If he can conquer sin for us and save us from the wages of death, redeem us to new life and victoriously claim for us an inheritance of eternal life in heaven...if He was able to do that... then what more answer a simple prayer for our simple needs today.
God is able! But why even knowing that full well...why, even understanding that and believing that in faith...that God is ever so able... why do we still fail to trust that He really can!?? Why do we still cowar or become anxious? Why do we still fear and stress, why do we still get depressed and worry about our petty little problems. Why after praying for God to help us we still go about our everyday worrying that we have to make a way for ourselves, we have to do it for ourselves and struggle to try to do something when we cannot...when all along we know that we have ask our God for help who is able to come through for us. Why are we still wimpering and wallowing in fear and worry?
Why? Because we forget... that our God is not only able.... but our God.... is also "willing". It is not a question of whether God is able but whether God is willing- so it's a question of God's heart, God's desire and willingness to do for us what we can never ever do for ourselves...what we are powerless and unable to do. Because God LOVES US with an everlasting love he is willing to listen to us and help us...
1 John 5:14This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
24 The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it. 1 Thes.5:24
OUR great and good God is not only ABLE but WILLING to do for us what we cannot do for ourselves. He is ready able and willing to heal us today, restore our depraved and desparate soul's, satisfy our every need... and redeem us from the pit of pits to save us and intoduce us to an abundant life of love in eternity with Him in heaven.
He is the King of Kings, the Lord of Lord- His name is Jesus! Jesus! And he is at your door knocking, waiting... for the day you open the door and let him into and through your heart. :-) For the day you say lord I cannot, and only you can...for the day you admit and accept that you are unable to save yourself. For the day you start believing that God is not only able but willing...because he is a God who is ever so full of mercy and grace.
Our God is able! Our God is willing! Our God is love!
