HE IS ABLE

ADVENT-18b-01.png

 

 

You’ve heard it said that our God is one of power. That He is all powerful, all knowing, and all seeing. Yet, somehow, this notion of His power doesn’t seem to set in at times.

We hear stories of God’s power manifesting throughout the world, and are encouraged by the testimonies of the saints. We read the pages of scripture and are met with promises of WHO God is:

 

“I know that you can do all things and that no plan of yours can be thwarted.”
Job 42:2

 

…Yet, we still struggle to take Him at His word. We “know” that He is Omnipotent and yet our lives are no different than if He wasn’t. We question promises, we doubt His truths, and are skeptics when it comes to the stories of others. The thought of a God who is omnipotent seems beyond our grasp of comprehension. Yet still, God meets us in our very doubts and struggles.

 

“Behold, I am the Lord of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for me?”
Jeremiah 32:27

 

The message of scripture is clear from the opening line of scripture to it’s close. God has no cap on his power and strength. His capacity to heal, love, forgive, save, comfort, aid, or encourage has no limit. These perceived limits are place there by us in light of OUR limitations and in light of OUR inabilities.

 

But Jesus looked at them and said “For man it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26

 

 

Our God is one of impossibilities. Our King meets us in our inabilities and in our impossibilities. He delights to show us that in the moments of weakness, doubts, and impossibilities, HE is able. This advent, press your thought towards the reality of God’s overcoming omnipotence. Take courage and tell Him your worries and doubts. Find rest in His who is able to do all things.
