“God Is Able”

“God Is Able”

“Being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.” Ro 4:21 NKJV

The reason we don’t turn to God more often is because at some basic and unconscious level we are not “fully convinced” He is able and willing to move on our behalf. Being able to admit that to yourself is humbling; it’s also the point at which you begin to deal with your lack of faith in God. Nothing in your life will change until you pray, “Lord, help me. I say things with my lips that I don’t follow through in my behavior.” Once you begin to pray that way you can start walking through your Bible, rediscovering that “God is able.” He’s able to provide for you when you’re in a wilderness. He’s able to defeat the giants that stand in your way. He’s able to go through fiery trials with you and bring you out unharmed. He’s able to promote you when you’ve been overlooked or opposed. “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Eph 3:20 NKJV). Whatever it takes to own the words, “God is able,” do it; otherwise you won’t be able to pray with confidence. You’ll make a few wishes on your knees, but you won’t be able to persevere in prayer until you know in your heart of hearts that God is able—and that He’s willing! Nothing is too difficult for Him. He’s just waiting for you to recognize that, and come to Him in faith asking for help.

Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're working with?
I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog
loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting
provider at a honest price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
