Our God Is Able!

We are in trying times in this nation.  Unemployment is approaching double digits.  The direction of our great nation is toward Godlessness.  What is the answer?  Take heart, God is still in charge!

Philippians 4:13 tells us, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”  Do we believe these words?  If we believe this promise why do we struggle with the difficulties life brings our way?  It is my opinion that we struggle because we take an attitude that basically says, “I know the promises of God but it doesn’t apply to my circumstances.”  We take the promises of God and place them behind our circumstances.  This is not as it ought to be!  God not only knows our problems,  He knows the solution already.

In Ephesians 3 Paul offers a marvelous prayer for the Ephesians.  He says in verse 16, “I pray that out of His glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith.”  As Paul continues he says in verse 20, “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.”  My friends grasp what Paul has said.  Our God is able!

How do you view God?  We need to realize we can’t measure God by our standards.  We can’t put God in a box.  Our God is indeed able to do more than we can imagine or even ask.  Lets look at just a few of the things God is able to do.

  • Our God is able to save us from our sin.  Hebrews 7:25 says, “Therefore He is able to save completely those who come to God through Him, because He always live to intercede for them.”
  • Our God is able to stabilize the lives of those he saves.  Romans 16:25, “Now to Him who is able to establish you by my gospel and the proclamation of Jesus Christ,”
  • Our God is able to help us in temptation.  Hebrews 2:18, “Because He Himself suffered when He was tempted, He is able to help those who are being tempted.”
  • Our God is able to make His blessings abound. 2 Corinthians 9:6-9 God knows our financial situation and knows the solution already.
  • Our God is able to destroy our Pride.  Daniel 4:33 If God can solve the attitude of a king he can solve our attitude of pride as well.
  • Our God is able to protect us in every circumstance.  Daniel 3:6-26 Sometimes God protects us from the furnace.  Sometimes He protects us in the furnace.  Sometimes God protects us through the furnace.

The point we must understand is this,  God is in control.  My friends don’t miss this point! Our God is able!!

    I believe God ALLOWED Obama to become president so he could destroy our country because the majority have become Godless. Only when the liberals wake up and acknowledge God will God save us.
