More than Able

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

People fail. That’s just the plain, honest truth. We do not like that reality, but there are times when, no matter how hard we try or how talented we may be, we simply blow it. What is the solution for our foibles? For Christ followers, the answer is to live out a radical faith in the knowledge of our God who's is willing, and able, to overcome our weaknesses.

One of my Bible College professors constantly told us, “95% of our problems come from a misapplication or misunderstanding of who God is and what He can do.

Remember Sarah? She laughed when she overheard the prophesy that she would become pregnant and bear a son. The Lord asked Abraham, “Is there anything too hard for Me?” Well, the answer to that question became obvious about a year later! At the ripe age of 90, she gave birth to Isaac. God was able to accomplish the unimaginable. 

It was pretty much the same with Moses. God told him to go to the mightiest king on earth at that time and demand that he “let My people go.” “Who am I,” Moses asked, “that I should go to Pharaoh?” The answer to that question came a short time later when the Hebrews were released, which God did in a most miraculous way. Once again, God was more than able.

But what about us? Well, it’s the same. When we operate in the will of God, we have access to a limitless source of strength that far exceeds our comprehension. The Chronicler said it well, “Both riches and honor come from You, and You reign over all. In Your hand is power and might; in Your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all”  [1 Chronicles 29:12].

Forget the flesh; put your complete confidence in who God is and what He can do. You’ll soon learn that He is able!

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
And to present you faultless
Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, 
To God our Savior,
Who alone is wise,
Be glory and majesty,
Dominion and power,
Both now and forever.

Jude 24-25
