My blogging friend Pam at Everyday Living commented on last week’s post about throwing a fit, God can take it. Her words reminded me of something important we should probably discuss. Yes, God is able! Absolutely true statement.
To give me hope in the midst of a trial, my dear friend G sent me Priscilla Shirer’s book God Is Able. That’s what good friends do. They not only pray for you, they encourage you.
I found her card stuck inside. Such sweet words of love and support!
As I began reading the book, this thought was on my mind.
I know God is able to do anything, but…
is He willing?
For months, I prayed for God to be willing to answer my prayer. Then, as I read promise after promise in His word, He answered my question. He changed me…to the point of standing on His promises in confidence that He would do it…because of this one verse.
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. (1 John 5:14)
If Satan is trying to tear your family apart, you KNOW it’s God’s will for your family to be whole. Anything that God created as good…it’s His will that we have it. It’s what He designed for us. Pray that prayer with confidence, because it’s His Will!
No more questions, then.
Yes, God is Able. He’s a BIG God!
And, yes. God is willing..if it’s His Will.
It’s a spectacular Sunday. Let’s praise the Lord for His Greatness!
